Are we still alive?

Yes, we are... but have just been horrible at blogging. Now, what has happened since we last posted?

First, I returned from Girl's Camp. Not a big deal.

Then, on August 4, we all went to California. Firstly, we stayed at Uncle Henry & Aunt Janine's house. Thank you for letting us stay with you!!!!! We had tons of fun playing with Claire, Madelyn, Ellen, and Ricky. That was a lot of fun. We will have to do that again. Then, we went up to South Lake Tahoe. We stayed at a timeshare in one condo, while the California Cates stayed in another. The Anguilla Cates stayed at a different timeshare. Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Genelle, and Aunt Carolyn stayed at another. The McCowns stayed at a cabin of a friend of Grandma & Grandpa's. We stayed there for a week, enjoying our time-share's pool, having fun on the beach of Lake Tahoe, and just relaxing when we weren't hiking or spending time with family, or doing crafts of all sorts. What a wonderful way to spend the week.

Then we returned to Grandma and Grandpa's. We had a fun time until we (Rachel, Laura, and I) were on horseback & attacked by hornets. I got bucked off, Rachel's horse ran and bucked like crazy, while Laura got 9 or 10 stings. We are all fine now. And just for Michaela McCown, my scab looks like a Llama. She would enjoy that.

We had a fun time there...

Now, school has started. This Monday, we had to go back to school. It has been an interesting experience. Nothing less than interesting. Rachel just started middle school, 6th grade. I started 7th. Laura started 3rd at Bedford Hills (the local elementary school) where Brian has just started 1st. Miri will do the homeschool preschool thing.

We have been having fun.

It is time for me to go, so bye!!
