Red Hill

The kids love talking about Red Hill. It's in the middle of the ISU campus and Isaac is convinced it's his hill because there is a big "I" on it. Emma took the kids up to the top of the hill in August. They loved hiking.
Here is a view from the top of the hill looking northeast. You can see where the 15 fwy is. Our house is just over the crest.
These pillars are a good conversation starter...they are at the top of the hill and have been there for centuries and centuries...*wink*
Don't know how the smallest guy ended up with all the gear, but he did.
Isaac found something interesting, so interesting it almost blew the other kids away!

Ethan On a Hill

Ethan loved to ride down the hill at the park. his little legs would go as fast as they humanly can and then he hits the hill and he lifts up his feet just like we all did when we were young.

This was shot from a cell phone so it may be small. This is Issac riding without training wheels.

Our Garden

We are a little shocked at the size of our garden. We have never had corn this tall or zuccini this productive (as if we wanted more zuccini). Our three nearly dead tomato plants have chosen to live and provide beautiful red love to others.In the very front (above) are the tomato plants, to the left is the zucchini plant, throughout the whole thing is either a pumpkin or a melon of some sort (we don't remember) it has covered the ground between all the other plants including the corn stalks. On the other side is potato plants that grew so big they collapsed on themselves, and lettuce is far too much and far too big. We wont be planting lettuce again because we just don't eat it.

So much for a little garden... to be continued.
