Mostly Short, Sweet, and to the Point

We celebrated two birthdays, attended Open House at Landon’s school, and had company over the weekend. The End!

No, there’s more, but we’re a bit pressed for time this week. Here’s a quick rundown:

Hallie got a spray tan in anticipation of her birthday. Now she’s thinner and browner than she’s been in a long time. It’s going to get to a point where people hardly recognize her!

Hallie’s birthday didn’t feel much like one: she played taxi to Mike and the kids. Mike had Campus Community Day, and the kids had school and gymnastics. After gymnastics, Landon showed off all the fun activities he has done in his class. We also checked out the classes of the potential teachers he and Eliza might have next year. We have our picks, but we’ll have to see what we get.

On Friday, our friend and former Detroit missionary Naomi and her friend Kimberly came to visit and take in some of the fun sights and activities of SoCal.

Back when Naomi was Sis. Longhurst, she and her companions helped us pack up for our move to California.

Every so often, the kids act like they like each other. Then there is everyday normal, where they’re like oil and water. This weekend, it seemed like they were determined to get on each other’s (and their parent’s) last nerves.

After Mike helped clean the church meetinghouse and participated in a training for Cub Scout day camp (to take place later this summer), we drove over to the LEGO Store, where Mike got some belated birthday gifts (3-in-1 building sets to add to our emerging little town) and Hallie got some Disney-themed minifigs.

After church on Sunday, we went to Grandma and Grandpa M’s to celebrate Sawyer’s 2nd birthday.
