Clayton had this look on his face every time and then a look of utter shock when the water shot him in the face

Bon Jovi

Ever wondered what Chris really gets paid to do all summer? He says he's busy teaching math....

You're a great teacher, Babe, and this is more proof of it! Your students are blessed to have you!

Summer Snapshots

We've been in Michigan for over a month already! Time has flown. Chris has been busy teaching four days a week for Upward Bound and Nikki has kept the boys busy doing all kinds of activities. We've been to 4 birthday parties, Nikki and the boys with Oma have been to Canada, Chris has camped amongst the mosquitos, we've made trips to Grandpa and Gradma's, gone to numerous parks, eaten lots of ice cream and many other amazing meals, and are still here for a little less than a month. Enjoy some of the snapshots of our summer so far.
