We all spent a day at Uncle Todd's farm.
The three oldest Elder siblings (or a rose between two thorns as Uncle Todd said - oh brother!!).
Dodger was being very good with the new little kittens!
We went to Jacob Gernert's wedding!

We FINALLY had ducklings!!!
Sienna turned 14!
Aunt Merilou and Isaac came for a visit. In the picture above, we're doing an experimental bottle rocket.

I caught my first swarm!
Thanks to Seth and Mr. Folgers for the help!!
A couple weeks later, Mr. Folgers and I removed a swarm from a neighbor's bench.
The "O" Family spent the 4th of July with us!

Soaking our feet for pedicure preparation with the boys watching on. My mother thought it was time for the girls to learn how to do a proper manicure/pedicure!
