Well we are still at the lake. Love the time we have spent here. Do we have to go home on Monday? Can we just stay for the rest of the summer?
Lake Okaboji is one of only 3 clear lakes. Love that you can see your feet in the water. It is cold but fun. The kids have been tubing a lot. They seem to like it. Caleb is not real fond of the water but goes anyways. We spend lots of time at the pool. We have been using lots of sun screen. I have burned in a few spots that I have missed.
Yesterday we spent the day at Arnold's Park. The world's oldest roller coaster. It was fun. The kids loved it.

Courtney was feeling really bad for a while I called the dentist. She was crying because her mouth hurts so bad. He said to rotate ibuprofen and Tylenol. I had already given her the Tylenol about 2 hrs before so I gave her the ibuprofen. We went to Drug town and got some fudge bars and the ibuprofen. I think the fudge bars helped more than the ibuprofen. :)
Hopefully she is back to normal tomorrow. He said if she isn't that we should call tomorrow am and he will see her. Last time she had one it was not this big of a deal she went back to normal with in a few hours afterwards. But it was in the afternoon not the morning when we had it done. I think it might be better to keep those appt to the afternoons so she can go to bed sooner and sleep it off.
Through the tears may we find joy. We no longer have you with us but you are in the arms of our Lord. We find peace that one day we will see you again. Those who walk on the earth know not the lives you have touched. You have touched many and we can not wait to see you again. Chasity
Psalm 69:3 I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God. This is such a fitting verse. After the funeral today, I have cried and now it is time to move on with our life. I have felt this way so many times when you have cried so much and now I can't cry any more. This is when it is time to have peace..
This picture I took the other day of Courtney. I actually took a bunch this is one of my favorites. I also took pictures of Katie and Caleb. Colton did not want his picture taken. UGGG! What do you do with a 12 year old who has a mind of their own.
