June 29, 2008 The past week


This has been a great week! We have done a lot of fun things.

Abigail and I picked strawberries with our friends. I told Abigail we were going to go pick strawberries and she wanted her purple gloves on to assist. I thought that was pretty funny.


The humidity has crept its way into the summer so we went swimming twice. Once at the pool at our apartment and once at Lake Lansing. We love Michigan's lakes!


I hosted a book club at my house. We discussed one of my favorite books- Anna Karenina by Tolstoy. We talked about what makes a family and marriage happy.

Benjamin, Abigail and I have been trying to walk everyday for 30 minutes. It has been fun to talk. We have seen deer, a skunk, a fire truck and lots of bugs.


We went to the library in DeWitt this week also. Abigail really loves reading books and the library is great, because we get to read a variety. One of the books we got was about tractors. She was telling me about them, so I pulled out the camera.



She has been getting better wearing her big girl panties. Potty training is great! Her potty treats have included suckers, gum, waffer cookies, Junior mints and chocolate chips. Don't worry grandmas! We are brushing teeth :)
We also posted new pictures on flicker http://www.flickr.com/photos/8641664@N05/
We lost our camera for some of the trip out west, so we don't have pictures for all of our time on vacation. We sure enjoyed seeing everyone!
