Scott won the Republican Primary Election for Constable!

Scott won the Primary Elections!
He had 48% of the Republican vote. He beat out two other candidates.
Scott spent the summer going door to door and meeting people, speaking at engagements, on the radio, in the newspaper--He was everywhere, not to mention all the signs around town.
We are very excited for this and now Scott will go the General Elections in Nov and tr to beat out the Democratic opponent. We feel strongly that he will be successful.

Blackberry Picking!!

Andrew playing in the rocks, he couldn't resist climbing over all the rocks!

Heidi Hastings and Jamie picking berries to their heart's content.

Blackberry Picking!

We went on a short overnight trip to Pine with the Hastings family to pick wild blackberries.

We stayed in a quaint cabin that had a creek running behind it with tons of blackberry bushes. It was really fun, we got all scratched up, bitten up by mosquitos and sweated up due to the HOT weather.

Nevertheless, we came home with yummy blackberries that were promptly made into jam, cobbler and frozen for smoothies. I was seeing $ in my mind as we picked--blackberries are so expensive in the store!

First Day of School (minus Sydney, who declined a picture)

Yay! Today is the 1st day of school for the younger kids. Sequoia starts today with Andrew starting Kindergarten (with Mrs. Warren and Mrs Lewis) and Sloane starting 5th grade (with Mrs McAteer). We hope all the best for this new school year.

Sydney will start 10th grade next week. Yes, I can hear her crying upstairs!
