Summer 2011

We have had a fantastic summer, I can't believe it is already coming to an end.  We kicked off summer with Katlyn's Dance Recital which she received an award for Dedication.  Katlyn also tryed out for the 2011-2012 Danzco Dance Team and made it.  She has worked extremely hard and we can't wait to see what joy she will bring to us next season with her dancing. 

No big vacations this year, just a couple of little ones.  We went with some friends to Sea World for a couple of days, did a little camping and a whole lot of swimming.

Katlyn went on a journey this summer to Dry Gulch, USA in Oklahoma for Church Camp.  That was very hard for all of us, we have never been away from her for more than two days.  Katlyn had a fantastic time but needless to say she is NOT going back next year unless we all join her.  She and Taylor missed each other soooo much.  And for a few weeks after when we would pull in the church parking lot Taylor would tell her Sissy NO CAMP!  By the way she missed us like crazy too....

Hunter celebrated his 1st Birthday on July 24th.  What a blessing he has been to our family.  Matthew celebrated his 16th Birthday today!  Crazy how fast they grow.  And Katlyn will turn 11 on Monday.

Here is a glimpse of the highlights of our summer
