so busy

We have been having far too much fun to keep up with blogging. We ordered a swing set for the kids and it arrived a few days ago. David stayed out very late, being eaten up by mosquitoes, to assemble it. He didn't get done, so he was back out there at the crack of dawn the following morning to finish up. The kids have loved it, but unfortunately we've had heat advisories every day since (ack!), and so we've had to limit their play to about 15 minutes at a time.

We've also had multiple illnesses going on. Truman got a terrible ear infection two weeks ago (his pediatrician called it, "The worst I've ever seen.") and then went to the ENT for his surgery consultation.

4th of July

We've also started our CSA pickups from Engelbrecht Orchard. Last week we got bunches of peaches, and this week we got more peaches, plus corn, cherry tomatoes, and ichiban eggplant. This is a picture of  my snack today, Engelbrecht peach with cream from Rose Hill Dairy, our milk farmer in Boonville.

Peaches & cream. Yummy.
