Eric had a business trip this past week to Vancouver, BC. He has taken each of the older children (when they have been around age 13) with him when he has gone to interesting places. This time it was Molly's turn. They flew into Seattle where Eric's parents picked them up and they all drove up to Vancouver to stay for the meeting. Molly was able to spend time with her grandparents which was a special time for her and she enjoyed traveling to such a neat place. One day they headed up to Whistler, which is where the 2010 Olympics held the alpine skiing. Here are some pictures. I have never been there, but it looks like a gorgeous place!

Catch-up Post

July was a very busy month for us. I was working in the kitchen at camp which while it had its benefits, much of the rest of things got put on hold. So here is a little of what we did in July.

We started July with our annual running of the Peachtree Road Race - the world's largest 10K road race. A friend from church who volunteers at the race snapped the picture above after we all finished (the guy in yellow is one of Scott's housemates). Then the picture below is in our matching Peachtree T-shirts after we cleaned up.

Scott's house, The Hot House, held a pig roast. It was quite interesting as I had never seen one before. The meat was excellent!

Molly and Emily went to camp with their friend Corrie. Peter also attended camp and Matthew attended day camp, but I did not get any pictures of them. I don't necessarily do a great job documenting the whole camp experience. In fact I think they are "out of sight, out of mind" as all my children claim that they are the only campers in their cabins who do not receive mail or care packages from home. Oh well....

Then we finished up July with Emily turning 10. All in all a busy, but fun month.
