Back to Blogging

Well, I guess I took a break from the blogging world toward the end of school. Things got pretty busy and I had to keep my priorities in order. Anyway, I got behind posting pictures and then the job seemed overwhelming. It is funny though because 4 people in the last 2 days asked me if I was giving up on the blog. I have a few hours today before we head off to Magic Mountain to use our free tickets from reading at school, so I will try and post some pictures to show what we have been doing. After school got out, and my baby graduated from elementary school, we went camping in El Capitan near Santa Barbara for 5 days, Avrielle went away to junior high camp for 5 days near Yosemite, and has been attending Wednesday night youth group at different families' pools from church, David and I celebrated our 14 year anniversary, Chandler went to Vacation Bible School at Grace Baptist, I had jury duty and got out of $1,000 dollars in parking tickets. We have been going to the pool at the Hoglos, the beach, and Hurricane Harbor. The kids are still swimming 3 days a week at College of the Canyons and competing in meets about twice a month. Avrielle has had a ton of summer work assigned to her by her new junior teachers, so we are fitting that in as well when we are home and in between outings. David has been playing softball in a Wednesday night league with a group of guys from Bible Study, fishing, and trying to fix up our back yard. On Sundays, we have been enjoying Summerfest where our church has dinner together on the lawn after the evening service. We went to a Dodger game with Katja, had Tracey and Andrew over for dinner, and had lunch with my mom after she got home from vacation. Here are some of the pictures. ( I wasn't able to finish so I'll post the rest later.)

Hi Lauren,

So glad to see you back on here. I have been thinking this last week that I needed to send you an email to see if everything was doing well. I've missed your posts but you are always allowed to take a break (or even quit if you need to).

I love your new background too. I am wanting to change mine, I just have not taken the time to do so. Please say hello to Dave and the kids for me.

Keep pressing onward sister,

Wow! Sounds like your summer has been as busy as mine. Fun, but busy. I thought I would have a lot of time, but guess not. The good thing is the kids are keeping busy doing lots of great stuff. I do hope we can catch you before summer is over though. Looking forward to seeing some of your picts.
