we're back from a 10 day vacation down the west coast. It was a lot of fun, and I have lots of pictures. (here's one of the coolest from the OR coast)
Right now my super sister Jeanette and her 3 kids are visiting. We're real busy with projects (Jeanette could be a professional organizer!). I'll post later with picts from our trip, we've got Tillamook Cheese Factory, Oregon Coast, San Fransisco, Santa Cruz, Sacramento Temple...

with the right kind of music...

kids will clean!

That's right, today right after breakfast, (hence the jammies, and Paul who lost his pants) I turned on some music. Nothing too special, just one of the 30 or so mix cd's Chris has made. And sure enough my kids each grabbed a broom and started to sweep. And I think they had fun doing it!

Now I just need to figure out how to get them all upstairs so I can actually get the floor clean before my visiting teachers arrive!

4th of July Thompson Reunion

Here's some pics from our weekend with the Thompson clan. We had a blast and we're so glad everyone could make it (and fit in our home!). We ate, hiked, rode scooters, played ping pong, went to a museum and the beach. And yes, we got bored waiting for it to get dark, so we blew up some food (cupcakes, bananas, apples, watermelon, you name it)

Happy 4th!
