July has been so much fun :) We've been enjoying backyard camp outs, baseball games, carnivals, bike rides and lots of swimming.
I've been slacking with the yard chores but that's OK.
Until next time.........

In April, Jake's third grade class received cabbage plants. Jake's been tending to his cabbage in hopes to receive a prize for the largest cabbage! Wish him luck :)
All the neighborhood kids are sure having fun with the new girls in town.
I've been freezing strawberries from our little patch almost everyday! These frozen berries sure come in handy for smoothies. I also freeze lots of bananas ---makes smoothie making so much easier :)
Not camera shy today!
I sure hope the gals don't discover I planted a few wild flower seeds in there!
Maude and Jake.
Lots of purple around our garden gate. I also like to plant Cosmos and Petunias and tuck them in here and there. Pink, white and purple.....a few of my favorite colors for the garden :)
Smore makin :) I love our new spot for the fire pit!
More neighborhood kids enjoying the chickens.
These two have been busy making sure the chicken run is clean. Jake has been filling their food and water containers and keeping the girls very happy.
The chickens favorite occasional treat is Strawberries. I save the girls a few when I'm freezing them for my smoothies.
What we've learned so far.
It seems no matter how many times we fill and clean their water and food, they somehow always manage in minutes to kick dirt and pine shavings in it.
I've got my eye on one of the galvanized food and water feeders that you can hang. Hopefully this will solve the problem :)
Wishing you a Fabulous Beautiful Weekend!xoxoxo

Jake's scout troop raced boats they designed a few weeks ago for the annual Raingutter Regatta.
Jake decided on a pirate ship design. I used my Silhouette to cut out the skulls and flag for him. I LOVE that awesome machine :)
He painted his boat black and used a dowel to hang the flag. For the flag, we used card stock and wrapped the vinyl flag around to make it more stable.
Then Jake added a lego piece and it was finished. One of the fastest craft projects on record.
They used straws to move their boats a little closer to the finish line. It was also great that it was a windy day.
They ended the scouting year with an awards ceremony, dinner and lots of treats.
Have a GREAT weekend!
