Mary in Cambodia

A couple of years ago my cousin Mary decided to apply to the Peace Corps.  This past spring she found out her assignment would be in Cambodia from July 2013 to September 2015.  She had a going away party on June 30th and I can't believe that will be the last time we will see her for a while.  She keeps us updated with her blog.  You can find it here, Mary in Cambodia.  It sounds like she got a little homesick but is otherwise doing fine.  Also her local county paper did an article on her.  Mary's story is on page four.  What an exciting adventure, Congratulations Mary!

July Photos

The end of June and the beginning of July got really busy and no posts were made, but we offer these cute photos of the girls as an apology.

Catherine celebrated her first 4th of July

Recently Catherine has discovered she has hands




Catherine turned three months and Jackie is turning three

Catherine's cowlick on the back of her head helps her with her Alfalfa impersonation

This photo was super difficult to take because Jackie kept trying to use the life preserver as a hula hoop

Overdue Updates

I've had a post on Jackie's  first trip to an amusement park in the editing queue for a few weeks now, but we are determined to not fall behind on this blogging experiment again! Alison has been doing a heroic job all summer, trying to find things to keep the kids busy, while I am toiling away at the office, and we have tons of pictures to share. Jackie has also taken her first steps towards a diaper free future, which has also been very exciting.

Catherine is turning out to be as big a ham as her older sister, maybe even more so, she is just a happy little content bundle of wonder, we can't believe she is already 3 months old.

Lot's more activities in the coming weeks, leading up to Jackie's third birthday celebration, so we'll try to get a few of the past due updates moving in the next few days.
