Jonathan's 7th Birthday

Jonathan's tallest tower.

Dear Jonathan,

I am so happy that it is your birthday.  You are such a nice brother and helper.  I love you!


Our family went to a park very near to our house and Elijah and Jeremiah tried to shoot us. They got us a couple of times, but we escaped most of the time.

Jeremiah and Jonathan.
Elijah and Jonathan. 
Jonathan and Hannah. 
Jonathan hit the ball out of the park...TOTALLY! 
Here he is, running home!  YAY! 
Jonathan shot the bow at an archery range. 
We were putting pavers down and Jonathan and I played in the sand.  We made a fort. 
Jonathan loves the puppies!

Giving Thanks to God

We went down to Iowa for Thanksgiving. 
Here we are eating. 
This is our cute cousin, "Samo" 
Here he is driving the tractor. *just kidding*
This is our Grandma and Grandpa. 
Holding off the enemy. 
Even Mama shot! 
Here is Papa, loading the gun. 
Our cousin, River. 
This is Jeremiah firing at the "enemy" - actually the clay pigeons, as you can see. 
People took turns firing Grandpa's pistol. 
Here is Grandpa shooting his pistol. 
Elijah ready to shoot the clay pigeons. 
We fired until it got dark. 
Jonathan with ear plugs in, because the gun shots were really loud. 
As you may see, we won the war!  :) 
This is the next day. 
Here is a squirrel we saw up in the tree. 
Here are Teddy and Rosie, our cute doggies.

Our trip to Texas

Last month, we were in Texas and we stayed for a week.   Papa and one of his friends were selling syrup and we stayed at some friends' houses.  We played baseball, army guys, we helped with some chores on the farm, and because it was hot, we stayed inside some of the time. Here are some pictures from our trip to Texas.

This is when we were going to leave the Beach's house to go to the Heaney's. 
Elijah was taking pictures of us. 
Christian was tackling him. 
They are playing four square. 
This is the Beach family. 
Elijah was taking pictures of the army men. 
This kitty is taking a fun "ride". 
The Heaney's have chickens. 
Jeremiah liked the kitties.  
This is one of their dogs. 
Some people slept in the truck when we were driving.

John 12:23-25

 But Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified.  Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.  He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.

Our fort that we made outside

Jonathan and I played outside and these are our forts that we made.  The roofs are waterproof, so the guys stay nice and dry.  We know that they are waterproof because it rained that day and the inside of our fort was dry.  Here are some pictures of our fort.  I had a lot of fun getting them.
This is my fort.
And this is Jonathan's.
This is the inside of Jonathan's fort.
Here are a few of the people who live in our forts.
