Yesterday was awesome. Caleb was out of school because of the holiday and Glenn has Mondays off, so we decided to go some where fun. We chose Bios on the Hill, it is this beautiful park, that has goats you can walk or feed or just pet, playground stuff made of logs, giant tree swings, and a little boat ride you can take. We did so much, and had so much fun. It was nice to really take a day off to rest and enjoy family and friends. We were joined by the Johnson's, Walton's and Barnett's.
Every year in October O.C.S.I. has a walkathon, where the kids try to raise support for school improvements or scholarships. Last year Caleb, Noah, Bekah and I walked through rain and sun. It was very memorable. This year was awesome. God was so good! We had awesome weather and we had a great time walking. The older kids do 20K and the little guys do 10K and have the option to take the bus if they are to tired.
Caleb did great, I walked 8k with him and Glenn finished off the last 2k after Men's study. Caleb did great and is looking forward to next year.
Here is Caleb and Bekah, we walked with Bekah most of the way. One picture is Bekah and Noah and Noah's friend. Last, Glenn and Caleb near the finish line.
We had a wonderful time at a park by the beach with Katie Johnson and her two kids. After playing on the playground we visited the beach. It was low tide, so we were able to walk out and find hermit crabs and little fish. It was lots of fun.

Here are some pictures from our first ever geocaching trip. Geocaching was introduced to us by the Ferry Family. Todd Ferry is a great friend and brother in the Lord and invited me and the kids to go out on a geocache. The kids call it treasure hunting. The basic idea behind geocaching is that someone hides something and publishes the GPS coordinates on a website. You can log in to the website and search for caches that are close to your house. We went over to the lighthouse next to Zampa Beach to find this cache. There were two there, the first one was much easier to find than the second one. The second one was down by a cave and I had to traverse the side of this cliff to get to the cache. It was a blast and the kids had so much fun. All they talk about now is going treasure hunting. I can't wait to take them back out again. We tried this last weekend but it was really rainy. We'll have to try this weekend.
