Silas - Both boys headed out for Water Wars 2 about a couple weeks ago. Devon could be spotted in the background of a couple pictures, but Silas got a closeup taken. He, of course, is making what has become his favorite silly face (third pic). Charming.
Domesticity - I made my own peanut butter. Just thought you should know. It's very likely that other nut and seed butters will be made in the near future.
Naomi - We found out today that she's had an ear infection for five days. Actually, we first found out one of her ears was jammed with wax, so she had to have it cleaned before the doctor could even see in it. That didn't go over very well, to say the least. First time I've ever heard Naomi scream. Anyway, she's now medicated and on the road to recovery.
Date - Remember our plan to try and get back in the swing of regular dates? Well, we're going on one tomorrow. We used to be pretty good about having a monthly date (I know some people think weekly is good, but that's just too much around here), but I can't remember the last time we went out. It's been that long. We just got lazy about making it happen. Anyway, we're on for tomorrow and I'm looking forward to it.
Devon - This is the first year he's been old enough to go to kid's camp. As it turns out, the church is scaling stuff back this year due to the cost of an unavoidable move earlier in the year. We're big fans of living within your means, so we totally support that decision. However, that meant camp, which is usually Monday morning through Thursday evening, is just a day camp this year. The Devs was pretty bummed at first, but he's chosen to have a good attitude about it. Today was the first day and he had a blast! It's not what he'd hoped for, but four days of games, Bible study, and food is pretty fun, even if you don't get campfires and sleeping bags once it's dark outside. I still can't believe he's a first grader now!
