  • Actual happiness looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
  • Education
    "Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on Earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education." -David Polis
  • "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it... but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one becomes to feeling ill... Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right." -Soren Kierckgaard
  • Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
  • How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. Annie Dillard

Thanks for the post and great pictures. I can't wait to get out of Wyoming, head back, and catch the tail-end of summer. Si is really driving already? And Tiny is a snorkler?


Loved all the photos. What a great way to spend the hot days of summer. Those lobsters sure look good!



I look at the photos on the blog every morning and this morning I noticed that you were standing in the flower garden, with your bright t-shirt, I thought you were one of the flowers!!
You are soooooooooooo cute! I hope your foot has healed from your cut.


Pops told me it was you driving the boat in the photo with Ben. Maybe when we come for a visit you can take us for a boat ride! I think you can do just about anything.


Great photos! Thanks for the update. I love seeing your garden. The boys are getting so comfortable in the water. I am 100% convinced that is the way to raise swimmers...just getting in the water as often as possible. I love seeing your family too! Who is who? Who is whom? whom is whom? You get the point. :)


wow...that is what summer is supposed to look like. I didn't even realize it was summer seasons all morph into one another when you are working in a cement block room :(


Oh Al, that is so sad, imagining you in a cement block room.  Do you at least have a window?  You need to come visit us at camp asap!


Thanks Deb.  I tried to go back and name everyone in that group photo, but it was too hard (or maybe Im too lazy right now).  Most of the people in the photo are friends.  My sister Karen is 2nd from left, but only a slice of her.  Danielle Brad are standing to the back, their boys Ben Sam are between them and my nephew Garrett is the blonde with the orange hat on the right.

Aunt Suz

it is not summer with out a trip to camp! Can't wait to see everyone.


Were all looking forward to seeing you in a few days Suz!
