Summer's end

For some reason, hitting the end of summer sent me into a tailspin of busy that I am only now recovering from.

Here's some highlights and random notes:

 
5K's and running in general have been a big part of our summer. Wokelle even ran his first and came in with a decent time of 30 mintues. These three boys love running and Ricky has decided to coach the Googeg family college team (one member -- Riane).


The new layer chickens are a regular feature of our yard now. We had too many roosters and so we had to slaughter the 3 extras. It was hard on Adela, but she braved it quite well. Now the flock is peaceful and quite fun to watch.

 
They are even starting to lay!

 
We had great birthdays, this was Ricky's.

 
Braydon is a Ranger now -- a New Knoxvile Ranger. A new law was passed and homeschool students are allowed to participate in extra-curricular sports with out taking any classes. He is enjoying practice -- his first meet is Tuesday.
 
School has started for us on Wednesday. It  has been a crazy week getting everyone, including myself  back on the routine schedule,
