Looks like you have been extra busy. Your Waterton posts always make me miss that place. It's so beautiful there. I have fond memories from a summer vacation out there.

I haven't read Percy Jackson - what did you think? Would you recommend it for a 7 year old?

No wonder I haven't heard from or seen you in forever! Looks like you've been having a ton of fun! And to have Reg home for so long must have been wonderful - good thing he didn't get eaten by that bear! Oh, and I totally LOVE Lucy's shirt in the first pic!! How perfect!

Aren't you glad life is busy? I've never had much use for just sitting around.

You manage to do so many things, so very well. Good job!
