Some summer 2013 things to remember

 Ella, Maya, Elvin and Millie and Mazy having some smores.

 National night out ended with a storm that made a nice sunset.

 Went bike camping with Maya, Heath and Harris down at Sakatah Lake State Park
 Rented the 50 person site for $50 to ensure we would have a spot.  Maya did great even though we had to ride on and over a few dangerous road conditions.

She carried her sleeping bag, a poncho and the marsh mellows for smores.  

 Heath's long haul trucker
 Harris's bike.
 Surly junk strap poncho belt.
 Girls found a turtle, each of them put a little nail polish on its back for future identification and released it into the pond next to the house.  I bet the otter thing that lives down there will eat it.
 Ella was an acrobat and a horse in her Dragon Fly theater production.
 Ella wanted a rainbow theme to her 10th birthday party.
 Susan came through.  It actually has a purple layer on the bottom that you can not see well in this pic.
Maya got to meet her kindergarten teacher yesterday.  We have a party at our home tonight for all the kids in our neighborhood that are starting kindergarten this year.   I can think of 5 or 6 that will come for sure and think their may be double that many.
