Summertime, and the living's easy

Lauris caught and reeled in his very first fish, a beautiful bluegill that posed for a couple of pictures before swimming off back to his friends to tell a story of “the littlest human he’s ever caught.”

We’re spending a lot of time on the lake despite the rainy weather that has followed us from Greenville. A few days cooler temperatures kept us out of the water, but if I let them, the boys would live on the beach.

We’ve had the opportunity to try out a few new sports, including pier-jumping, flipper-walking and minnow-catching.

Wednesday my cousins arrived, and Lauris and Mikus have already learned all sorts of new tricks. Plus, they have access to the tree fort…

Near the beginning of the week the boys’ cousins and Lauris’s godmother were here. I’m so happy for them to have relatives so close in age, and sad that the distances keep them apart for such long periods of time.

Lauris’s godfather also managed to get some time off work, and we spent some time digging in the sand with two more of our favorite people.

Despite the vacation atmosphere our time in Gaŗezers has been jam packed, slowly ramping up to the volleyball weekend. With large numbers of friends and family descending on Michigan it’s sure to be a good time. The best part? The boys get to see their dad soon and I might get a moment’s peace…
