random august things

Summer is coming to a close, we are trying to fit in all the fun things we can before the kids go back to school and the rain (and rain , and rain) starts up. It has been absolutely gorgeous here, High 70s or 80's every day, there is no where more beautiful than the pacific northwest in the summer. We went to a lake near Seattle called Green Lake last Saturday.

They had little sailboats for rent. Josh got one, while me and the other kids got a paddle boat. The kids all got turns with Josh, they sailed circles around us.

Here are Ally an Ava and Ally;s friend Maggie sporting their lifejackets.

So Ally has started cheer. And Luke is in football. Ally gets to cheer for Luke;s games, it is super fun to watch them. Ally loves cheer leading. It has made for a busy August thought, football 5 nights a week for 2 hours, cheer 3 nights a week. Green! Green! Green! Green! blackblackblackblackblackblackblack and white (clap clap clap clap) and white (clap clap clap clap). We just finished up a full day of cheer and football, those cheers have a way of staying with you long after the game. Ally is in the back middle of this next shot.
All in all, we are having a blast this August, and sad that we start school after Labor Day. This summer just zipped by, one more week of playing, swimming, picking blueberries, hanging out at the beach, and running through the neighborhood. 9,7, and 5 are the BEST ages. I love this stage of life!
