School has started here in oz, Danny is officially a jr. high kiddo. Riles is a first grader, complete with no front teeth!
We took a trip to Boone a couple weeks ago. It was bittersweet for me, because I remember going there every summer while I was growing up. Mom and Dad always took us camping at the waterworks park with Uncle Bob and Aunt Peg. Now, it is an overgrown timber, the horse riding lesson academy isn't there anymore either. We then went down to see the Kate Shelley High Bridge. They are in the process of building a new one in front of the old bridge. :( One thing that hasn't changed was the shale pile. Kristi and I used to call it the meatloaf! lol.. We still do. On the way home, Chris and I had the boys in our van and we took a little side trip down the greenfield exit to go see the rock in rural iowa. Otherwise known as the freedom rock. Every year a local man paints the rock on Memorial Day to honor our countries veterans. Check out the website. It is really a very beautiful tribute.
Well, here are the pictures from our adventures, plus first day of school photos.
