With the kids finally out of school, Summer can officially begin!
We went to the pool:
|So proud of how brave she was.|
We went to Amish Country:
There is an Amish community not too far from Union City and they have a discount store that has unbeatable prices on baking supplies. I loaded up on flours.
While the girls shopped, the boys fished. Tony texted (is that a word?) to tell me he had a surprise for Lucy. It was this little guy:
We were thisclose to bringing him (or her) home. Then I read online about how I'd need to clean up the poop and that was enough to cancel out the cuteness and we let him (or her) go in a nearby wetland. I am not about poop. At least not animal poop. Baby poop, heck, not even a 3 year old's poop really bothers me. But animal poop makes me a bit crazy.
One of the ways I tell people I love them is through food.
I made Dad O some cashew and white chocolate chip cookies, recipe forthcoming, and Tony made some more Mozzarella. This was even better than the stuff we made in the class. I tell you, Tony is some kind of cheese making genius.
Now, if only the sun would stay out long enough for us to enjoy the outdoors!
