Time to Do Some Catching Up....

PhotoWell time flies when your having fun and your computer crashes over two months ago.  Its funny on how you make do and realize what really you need a computer for and what is basically a waste of time.

Oh well, what has been sorely missing is the update of the rest of summer and the kids going back to school.  Emma is now in middle school and we have switched  Sophie and Myles to a elementary that is two blocks from the house!

We have been having a lot of fun, many changes, and working on repairing bridges.  

We had an awesome assembly:

PhotoHad some awesome time with the kids with Myles finally riding and loving riding his bike.  Emma ran her first half marathon (13.1 miles) and Sophie is a running fiend (just completed a solo 10K with over 2000 feet of elevation).

We also had excitement nearby.  Mount Diablo had the first fire since we moved here 14 years ago.  Since we live 2 miles from the park entrance, we had a sideline view.  The park opened back up last Monday and Beth took a run up there.  You can find her pictures here.  We went up today  and I took some more pictures.   The wonderful thing is that other than the grass, most of the stubs that make up the chaperell and manzanita are fire resistant which means that everything will come back next year!

Enjoy some other pictures of the summer:
