Trail Riders 2007

Los Vaqueros Trail Riders visit WMDS

McIver wasn't interested in the horses, but he climbed up on the motorcycle as fast as he could.

He wanted to help water the horses.

Our little Grease Monkeys

Olivia inherited a "princess" bike from her friend Abby. Here are a few pictures of Will with his 'helpers' changing out the tubes in the tires. McIver, true to his wish not to be a boy anymore, was super-helpful with the wrench as a construction worker.

Will and I, along with three other couples from church, hosted an Oyster Roast last weekend at our house. We had a great time with almost 35 guests in attendance.
I got home from my first Vestry Retreat last night and went in McIver's room to tell him goodnight. (It was almost 10:00 so he should have already been asleep.) Anyway, I turned off his light and leaned over to give him a kiss. He sighed and said, "But, Mommy. I just don't want to be a boy anymore." I wasn't really sure how to respond so I just said, "Well, Bud, what DO you want to be?" He turned over and tucked his knees up under him and said, "I just want to be a construction worker." I assured him that, in the morning, he could wear his hard hat and carry his tool box and be a construction worker.
