Reptile Day


Our neighborhood park hosted lots of summer events this week, including Reptile Day.  I was amazed at how brave Andrew and Brooke were, standing in line over and over again to hold each reptile!  Favorites: Python and "Boa Constructor."

Slumber Party

School is out!  We celebrated by building an enormous den in our living room; the kids slept in it for an entire week before we took it down (pillow fights are mandatory for slumber parties)!

Sports Day

For our stake sports day our family chose to be Team Swiss.  Matthew proved excellent at the egg and spoon race (holding it on with both hands really helped!), and Andrew and Brooke seemed born to be three-legged race partners (being twins having anything to do with it?)!

Last Day of School

Andrew and Brooke's last day of Reception (kindergarten) and Matthew's last day at Rainbow's pre-school.  They seemed to have grown up so much this year!
After our very short summer holiday, Matthew will be joining the older two at Primary school.

Anthony took the older 3 kids out on their first camp-out (not in our backyard).  They have definitely inherited his Colorado love for camping!

Silverstone F1

A work event gave Anthony a close up look at the world of Formula 1 and Michael Schumacher's car.

Berry Picking


Another repeat event from last summer.  This year we added cherries and plums to our usual strawberries and raspberries, and Matthew made friends with a goat he named Brownie.
