R.I. fluke fishing trip

Published by under Family

Jared and I went on a fluke fishing trip on Saturday. The oat, the Seven B’s V, left from the port of Gallilee, R.I. We didn’t catch anything, and fish were caught to the left and to the right of us. But it was a fun trip nonetheless.

Rachel earns Math Award!

Published by under Family

Rachel was awarded for Outstanding Academic Achievement in Math on Wednesday, and we couldn’t be prouder. I guess she gets her math skills from her Mom because Dad can barely add. 😆

Deb stands with Rachel, as she displays her certificate for the math award.

How high is the lawn?

Published by under Family,Friends

OK, admittedly, this is bad.

It took us almost two months to get our tractor back from the repair shop. In that time, the grass grew, and grew, and grew! The backyard got so bad, we actually called contractors looking to just knock it down, with prices ranging up to $2,000 (NOT!).

Fortunately, we got the tractor back today. And, even more fortunately, our buddy Joe (a Floridian at heart) jumped on the opportunity to get out in the heat and attack our lawn beast ….

Joe, lost in the grass
Can you make out the tractor?

So, is it done? Not yet. The belt broke and now the tractor must go in for servicing. Let’s hope it doesn’t take as long this time to get it repaired or we might as well not bother this summer….. sigh….

UPDATE, June 22, 2008: Finally, we finished the cutting the lawn and it is more or less presentable again! The tractor survives!

Published by under Events,Family

While this is basically Part 2 of Lauren’s dance party, the first couple of minutes of this video is a treat because we get to see Sally dancing with her granddaughters! Enjoy!
