Sunday Soccer

A bunch of us (and a bunch of our kids) have been getting together on Sunday evenings (at 5:30 at the field in the middle of the walking track at the Whoville Park). Here are some photos of the fun...





We divide between older kids and younger kids games...



Sometimes even the REALLY old kids play...








Sometimes the older kid's game gets a bit boring, and the girls find something else to do.



So we separated them, but it didn't seem to help...








A great time was had by all. If you are local, plan to join us next week! The more the merrier!

Oma and Papa Pete's Land

This is a gratuitous post for Oma and Papa Pete... and all their friends who religiously read this blog. :) Eric took Matt, Nate, and Mercy by the land last week on his way home from Cincinnati... here are some photos.

Hi Oma and Papa Pete!


Happy cows are not only in California...

Pharmacy Fun Day

On Saturday our local Pharmacy had a Fun Day Celebration here in Whoville... and since I haven't said it yet, I will tell you how much we love our small town pharmacy. Even Dr. Adams in Cincinnati commented on how she had never worked with such an amazing pharmacy. Since Mercy is the only propanalol child they have, they just sell us the whole bottle of medicine at a time. It's not like we won't use it.

They have a drive through window. I love that.

If I cannot get into town to get our prescription filled, they will drive it out to my house. I try not to take advantage of it, but it is a nice benefit to have... it's not as easy as you think getting out of the house these days.

They only charge whole numbers of dollars... no cents. And they round down. So if your prescription would cost $7.87, they just charge $7. I know that would add up to a LOT of money lost over the course of a year, but in my book it adds up for a LOT of loyalty.


So anyway- we enjoyed the anniversary celebration on Saturday. Eric got to fly in for it...


Tried to get a photo of Eric and all the kids, but Emma was hiding behind Anna, and the back row was too dark anyway. Oh well.


Cool flag on the Firetruck, I thought...


They gave away 4 bikes, and Mercy won one of them. She was so excited!!! Wasn't it nice of us to match her dress to the bike?


Queen Mercy waving to her adoring public...


Angela and Bethie...


The most handsome guy in the world, and his littler clone...


Sweet, Sweet Sara.

Random Cuteness

All right, everyone, be prepared for a week of photos... I have been loving my new camera. Since I am stuck at home on a Sunday with sick children, I am catching up on all the cute photos I have not posted yet... so if you don't want to see them, just skip this week. I plan on putting them on the timer thing so there will be posts all week, and I can be busy with other things. Like taking more pictures, or having a baby or something. :)

Our princess dresses get LOTS of wear and tear...


Tough Guy...


Bethie sorting green beans. It kept her busy for a good half hour!


Everyone teethes on banana peppers straight from the garden, right?

Picking tomatoes and playing in the sprinkler... a good summer's day.


Just plain cute...
