Perhaps the thing that everyone is most excited about is the fact that school is now officially over for the summer. Chance was working hard getting ready for finals the last few weeks of school and now he has his whole summer spread out before him.
Ammon has been ready for summer for weeks now and is glad to have endless days of sunshine. Mother Nature has been a bit finicky this year, so some days have been warm and sunny, and other days have been cool.
We did get our garden in this year and Ammon is eagerly waiting to see how our corn grows. We have had mixed results with corn through the years. Sometimes it grows really well and other times it kind of flops. Last year was a great year for our corn. Ammon used our secret weapon of bunny poop for fertilizer. Ammon dutifully collects the waste in a bucket and we dry it out. Then he spreads it over our corn patch and garden. Another one of Ammon's favorites activities is growing pumpkins. Last year we got some really big ones that we used to decorate our porch and then carved faces and designs into them for Halloween. We have two varieties that we are testing this year. Last year we grew Big Max pumpkins and this year we have those again, along with Big Bonnie pumpkins. We will see who grows the bigger pumpkins, Max or Bonnie.
Chance had a good soccer season. His team did not make the finals which is always kind of a let down, but he felt he played well this year. He will start his summer league team soon. Chance can never get enough soccer.
Ammon is getting ready for tennis and swim lessons.
