Okay, moving on. We also had to say goodbye to some sweet friends. Jon and Deb are now directors for Village Missions, and with their change of position were leaving their current ministry. We went to visit them and say goodbye -- although not for good -- we look forward to their visits with some of our local Village Missionaries.

Ezekiel also enjoyed a birthday celebration. He turned two, and has been joyfully advancing in the area of speech. He is so much fun, and loves trying to keep up with his older siblings.
One of the fun things of summer is the intense heat :) A couple of times this summer we met my parents at a city waterpark. The kids loved meeting up with Oma and Opa, and Ezekiel loved playing in the water -- Kara loved going down a waterslide by herself. Lydia loved playing under the water. Andy enjoyed everything, but Ezekiel's favorite part -- The Lazy River.
One thing that happened this month was Kara -- She discovered a love for reading. I was finally able to get her to start reading some chapter books, and the image below is a scene that I expect to see repeated many times over the next several years.
We also took the kids to a local historic place. We had a picnic at the Home on the Range Cabin. The kids enjoyed the picnic and discovering a tiny bit of local history.
