June we slowed down a little bit. Just a little bit

Jaycie met a little fox  and was in heaven

a close up

We went camping with the Slades at the Ponderosa campground. The hosts have set up the 100 acre wood. Here is one pic.

Koda got his shots and a haircut in one week. So handsome!

Also Girl's camp happened in June. No electronics allowed, so I bought a portable camera to take pictures. And guess how many I took? Yep. 0. Zilch. Nada.

 It was a great week and I enjoyed spending showerless, sleepless, electronicsless week with some of my favorite young women (especially Jaycie;) It was a very good week all sarcasm aside and I came back, hopefully, a better person.


May was  a crazy fun month. End of school stuff and Graduation made it a memorable month.
