Tuesday, July 8. It's good to be home at the start of a vacation; no hectic or stressful packing and the kids do so much better sleeping in their own beds. It has been a joy to spend extended time with the older three kids. Grace and Buddy learned to ride their bikes without training wheels a few weeks ago and we went on a 3 1/2 mile ride together. They loved it and Buddy kept commenting on how his legs are getting stronger because of the ride for basketball, baseball, soccer and running. He is already in training mode. We went to the Arts in the Park in Forest Lake and Grace fell in the lake while climbing on the rocks. It just scared her. Oh, by the way, Elijah is potty training himself. More on that some other day.
