Birthday, Soccer, and Fun at the Park

Hannah celebrated her 7th birthday.  We opened gifts at home and enjoyed cake and ice cream and THEN headed out to Chuck E. Cheese.  The children were shocked and delighted that we were eating dessert before dinner.  :-D

Stephen really enjoyed getting to go to a week of soccer camp.  Although he'd never had any coaching in his life and had never played on a formal team, his personal skill level was at the 9th/10th grade level and his team skills were at the 5th/6th grade level.  We're all SO proud of him!

Yesterday, we all went to a nearby park for a good chunk of the afternoon and just enjoyed relaxing and playing together.  We ate a picnic lunch and then the children played on the playground.

Lots has been going on since I last posted.  I'm hoping to catch you all up with these photos.  Happy 4th of July!

Love, Dawn
