Last Day of School
James pitched the family tent in the backyard on the last day of school. We ate McDonald's and ice cream, stayed up talking about summer and then James and the kids slept in the tent while I slept inside with Meredith where it was nice and comfortable and very quiet (except for the neighbor's noisy kids camping out in the back yard).

It's our new tradition. I love it...
Our little garden has grown quite a lot. It used to look like this.
We harvested our first zucchini on Tuesday.
The Venus Transit occurred on Tuesday and won't be seen again for another century. So, James made a pinhole camera using an old box.
Even though we weren't able to actually see the Venus Transit, it was a wonderful opportunity to gather together.
We used our orange plate to represent the sun and the brownies to represent Venus which really would only be a crumb if we were being to scale so we ate the brownies to be more realistic.
These are my Beehives. I love them! The Miamaids and Laurels went on the Pioneer Trek this week, so we had a planning meeting during Mutal and made oreo truffles. I'm so excited for Cardi to turn 12 next year. Then she gets to hang out with these totally wonderful young women.
I'll share the recipe next week.
Oh and I am suppose to make sure I tell you that Cardi took this picture.
