It finally feels like summer is here! New England is so unpredictable. It changes so fast. We have been very busy with various events and studies. Hopefully I'll get more pictures of the everyday for next time. Hope you are all having a fabulous summer!

For His honor and Glory!

Forgetting to get pictures while we played cards, before we left we quickly gathered a handful for a picture... ok, so they were a little stacked

A hike at Blueberry Hill

I didn't know we built buses

Charting the course

A warning from Thing 1&2: "Caution: Slippery boards after rain"

Step, step... sink. "Eww... it's all muddy!" "What if the others step in it?" "Let's mark it so they know!"

Climbing... the cliffs of insanity!

Hola, Mamas!

Noah went from person to person. His dad carried him most of the way up...

Then Mom carried him. She was happy to carry him too. She always prayed that she would be strong enough to carry her grandchildren hiking. Since William was unable to be with us she carried Noah instead.

The weather turned out to be beautiful, despite the fact that it poured the night before and into the morning.

It isn't named Blueberry Hill for no reason

Unfortunately, the majority looked like this

"This is for you."

It must have been one exhausting hike for Noah

This place looked like something out of Narnia

The view from the top

After eating some of us went exploring...

...finding the most enchanted place with ferns as a background and moss as a carpet.

A most restful spot after a hike


"The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul..."

There's nothing quite like walking through water that's lined with moss

On the way down Emma took turns going from person to person... first on Mom's back...

... then at my side...

... and a shoulder ride on Dad!

My favorite way to go hiking? Bare feet!

Mr. Murray said the water is full of minerals and tastes really good. I wasn't convinced at first...

but ended up joining in, and I'm glad I did. He was right! It was the best water I've had!

Proficiently unloading the van... more then five bags, a watermelon, bread, and a jacket!

Right before we left Mr. Murray caught this snake. Very photogenic little thing... posed perfectly for me
