Schools out for summer vacation! 

 Now that Charley has first grade under her belt she was rearing for the next big challange…losing the training wheels. 

Oh yeah, check out our little brave one in action.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

By the way, I should mention that this video was taken after Mike…and his patience of steel… spent a few hours teaching Charley how to ride. 

All credit goes to my wonderful, calm and patient husband.


Here is Char on the first day of 1st grade:


and now the last day…

Think she looks older???



1st Fox Family Garden June 5, 2010

Before selling our house and moving so Mike can fulfill his dream of becoming a farming CPA,

we’ve decided to try our luck in the backyard first with a small organic garden.


First  Mike, with the help of Grandpa Duane, built a 4 ft X 8ft raised bed garden.  

Next we started sprouting seeds!  I think we  started sprouting a bit early because the majority of them petered out before we were ready to plant.   

We ended up buying seedlings from a  really neat place called Lilly of the Valley


Mike even built us a makeshift compost bin out of old wooden pallets! 

I’m sure our neighbors think we’re crazy at this point, but I’m hoping to win them over with a few baskets of our summer harvest. 🙂



 If all goes well…and we don’t kill everything….our harvest will include green and red peppers, broccoli, red lettuce, spinach, green beans,

Roma and cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, basil and jalapenos.  



If you have any garden advice or pesticide free pest control tips PLEASE post them. 

We are all ears!


Last Day June 1, 2010

Filed under: Ella — rfox14 @ 3:37 pm

Ella is officially on summer vacation! 

Her teachers had the class vote on how to spend the last day and apparently the results were a tie.

Pajama & Pancakes and Movie & Popcorn Day was how they described it. 


Here is Ella on the last with her amazing teachers, Miss Nicki and Miss Kim. 

I sure am glad we get to see these ladies at church because Ella misses them already.


Make that one full year of Preschool behind us and one more to go before Kindergarten!
