It’s already the end of JULY!

Well, the spring and summer have flown by, and here we are at the end of July already.  Sara graduated from Austin High School at the top of her class in June.  We had a wonderful family vacation up north, in Voyager’s National Park. I’ll try to post some pictures.  It was an awesome vacation!

After a few days at home doing some laundry, Matt weft to go back to Washington, DC and David left for a month in northern California doing some pole-vaulting.  Sara and Mom went back up north for a few days…our annual mother-daughter trip with friends.  Mom had a waterskiing accident, and ended up rupturing her hamstring tendon(s) and is now waiting to hear whether surgery is an option to help the recovery process.

On August 18, Sara will be competing in the Miss Austin pageant.  We’d love to have a large cheering section for her! Please come, and let us know if you’d like to stay overnight with us!  Sara will also be getting ready to move into Bethel University on August 30.  David will be movoing to Grand Forks, ND, to take Fall semester classes near Emma.  He will then return to Wheaton in the spring to compete in track and field.
