Snapshot #1237: Emily's Blessing Dress

June 18, 2015.  Camas, Washington.  On Emily's blessing day countless friends congratulated me by exclaiming, "Oh, that dress!"  It truly is a beauty.  Mom designed it after an antique blessing dress--the dress my Grandmother Anna Laura Petersen was blessed in as a baby.  Our friend, Sue Ormond made it.  She should definitely go into business!

Snapshot #1235: Home Preschool

June 16, 2015.  Camas, Washington.  Every one else's kid just finished school for the summer, but I'm just now wrapping my brain around (since the baby's birth) some home preschool we are working on a few things here and there.  This weeks topics include:  Rhyming, Calendaring, Writing her own name, and Gratitude.

Snapshot #1234: Skinned Elbow

June 15, 2015.  Camas, Washington.  Hazel fell and skinned her elbow and hand this morning while running along the Heritage Trail.  Poor girl cried and cried, so Daddy came home at lunch to make it all better.  We are so blessed to have him work close to home.

Snapshot #1226: U-Pick Strawberries

June 6, 2015.  Vancouver, Washington.  Don't let this photo fool you...she only picked a dozen strawberries the entire time.  We filled 3 buckets in one hour which tonight yielded 16 jars of freezer jam.  Come on over for some freshly-baked bread with fresh strawberry spread...YUM!

Snapshot #1221: "The Longest String"

June 1, 2015.  Camas, Washington.  Will she get more play out of the soccer ball or the longest string she has ever seen?  I'm betting she'll get more play out of the string short-term, but the soccer ball long-term.
