Finally it's not summer on the blog!  I went onto Picasa and erased 4 old header photos, plus a few other images.  It worked.  But I still don't understand why I could load another 25 on the last post, but not 1 measly header photo...

Day Camp

 Almost a month ago we had the opportunity to go to a music/nature day camp for free.  It was amazing.  Here is Matthew in hand drumming.

 Right after lunch Matthew performed with some of the kids that took the morning Kindermusik classes.

 I wish you could hear this lady sing.  She had a wonderful voice.

 One of the big highlights for Matthew was getting to go horseback riding.

 First time on a horse.  He's only been begging for one since he was 2.

 Later in the day we went down to the pond.

 I found a shell with "stuff" on the bottom.  I thought frog eggs.  Mom and Dad say no, so..."stuff."

 After supper, we went to the amphitheatre and watched kids and adults perform what they had learned during the day in their music classes.  Matthew anxiously waited for his group, hand druming, to perform.  They were last.

 Waiting with the group to walk in.

 Walking in.

 He did a good job.  I was proud.

 Then we stayed for half of the symphony of concert.

 It was absolutely beautiful and the music was wonderful.  Matthew even enjoyed it.  They had a famous symphony composer/cello performer there.

 Not used to the wait time on my newer camera, but I thought it made for an interesting image.

We had such a great time and hope to attend next year!

Phil arrived at 4:30 yesterday morning!  He'll be with us for 2 weeks.  Matthew was so excited to be picked up by his dad after school and be able to go home and play with him.  We're looking forward to some great family time!

They won't let me change my header photo.  Apparently, I've uploaded too many header photos, but not too many for the posts.  I may have to start a second blog soon, due to running out of photo space...

Soccer, soccer, and more soccer

 The victory smile.  Right after his first goal.

First soccer season is a wrap!

As in yesterday Matthew found that one of his first baby teeth is loose!  Slightly anyway.  But enough to cause great excitement in the kingdom.  :)  Stay tuned for further developments.  And hopefully more photos this week.
