Gotta catch up on the old blog! First things first, on Thursday, we became licensed foster parents and on Friday evening we welcomed our first placement, a little boy. He's sweet and I feel like I'm in over my head but also like we have a handle on this too? I dunno, it's really strange to have a child dropped off at our house who we don't know. Lots of kisses, hugs and cuddles around here!

Right after we arrived home from camping at the Fire Lookout, we showered, re-packed and went camping in Idaho with friends. It was lovely. Just what I wanted!

Before our best friends left for Spain for the last month of summer (what? I know!), we met at the Splashpad for a picnic and some play time. We miss them like crazy and can't wait until they come back. Until then.. check out this cute crew!

Catching up on the old blog!

Here are some photos from our fourth of July. We went with some friends to the parade in Liberty Lake. Not sure what I was expecting, but I can tell you, I was not expecting golf carts. The parade was about 25 minutes, all golf carts, and the kids collected so much candy! And that was that!

Strawberry picking at Greenbluff is a must do! The strawberries are these itty bitty things about the size of a thimble, but they are so sweet and flavorful! No other strawberries compare to these. We've picked fruit and berries of all sorts of variety lots of times with these friends. I love that they are such an integrated part of our lives.

Another June, another Father's Day! I enjoyed celebrating my amazing husband and father to my children. We just bought a minivan (!) so the running joke was that was his present. But really truly, I didn't give him anything. I made eggs benedict for breakfast and after church we drove out to CDA and hiked a little ways to a hidden beach. We parked ourselves there for a few hours and swam, ate and played.

Conor is a wonderful father. He's grown so much as a father, and having children to care for has played a huge part in who he has become over the years. As we embarked on Foster Care, I feel immensely grateful to have Conor as my partner.
