Austin making money

Austin doing his chore. He gets $1.oo each week for bringing the trash can up the driveway. He has a little stash of money now. He likes to by little matchbox cars when we go to the store.

We have not given Valerie any chores since she has been back. We are just letting her get use to being home again. We just ask her to help us out every now and then, like unloading dishwasher, help take out the trash and things like that. It actually seems to really work out this way.

Raystown beach

On Sunday we took a surprise trip to the lake...the closest thing central Pa has to a beach. The kids had great fun. Valerie spent the entire time trying to catch a fish. Austin loved finding the fish and digging in the sand. And Savannah just loved it all. Both younger kids got a little taste of the water and were not happy about it. It turned out to be a fun day for all.
