Kindergarten Graduation!

Bethany graduated from Kindergarten last night! Our little girl isn't so little anymore!

We're super proud of you, Bethany! We love you!

Welcome to summer!

It's official: summer is here.

Just look at these faces!

Part of the mess you see on their faces is from Sunday night's dinner & ice cream at John & Mary's (a local sub shop). Most of it, though, is good old fashioned summertime dirtiness!

Trinity School Picnic at Camp Pioneer

All the Trinity kids went on a field trip to Camp Pioneer today, so I took Bekah and Abby and we tagged along.

The first thing we did was a scavenger hunt, but I didn't get any pictures of that because I was carrying Abby and corralling these three:

There was lunch, of course, but I didn't take any pictures of that, either. Not off to a great start, I know...

But then! There was plenty of playing on the playground, of course:

(Bekah and Abby -- but especially Abby -- always LOVE the swings)

(Bethany always loves playing with Amelia)

(going down a slide wearing Crocs is a fairly slow-motion affair...)

And I know I'll probably get yelled at for this, but even Sarah & Lindsay got in on the playground action!

With Pioneer being right on Lake Erie we spent some time down on the beach! The water was pretty cold, so the girls didn't go in much (only Bethany managed to brave it more than an inch), but they played in the sand and with all the cool rocks that wash up from the lake.

(most of Bekah's time on the beach looked something like this, with her trying to get sand & rocks out of her shoes)

As you can imagine, I've got some tired little girls in the house right now, but they all had a great time!
