The day started with taking Michael off the see the chickens as a distraction.  Turns out daddy got distracted as well and started photographing the barn swallows and then a tiny little wren in a birdhouse out front of the barn.  Later in the day mommy spotted a Great Blue Heron on the far side of the bay.  Daddy went off on an expedition to see if he could get a shot of it with the camera.  Over 600 photos later he decided that was probably as good as it was going to get.  We think he got a few nice ones. At the end of the day it was windy but not crazy windy so the kids took their kites out for a spin.

It was a misty morning and with a bit of coaxing we managed to get the kids out of the cottage and into canoes for a quick paddle around the bay.  The day turned out to be a nice one so much beaching was done.  Erika demonstrated how her karate training and love of books and cooking can be combined to great effect.  To finish the day off the older girls did acrobatics and karate practice in the water.

Today was a busy day.  We started by making slime at the Dwight library, followed by our annual canoe tipping practice.  Then it was time for an epic water run on the beach with a pool at the top large enough to bathe in.  To finish the day off we went to watch the ski show around the corner.  This year they did many of the same tricks but also added a pyramid which we didn't get to see last year.  Daddy may or may not have had too much fun photographing it with his new camera.

Today was swim day and Erika, Elizabeth and Mommy swam to the point and back.  Michael has decided that not only is being pushed on the swing fun but so is pushing others.  He doesn't quite understand that what is pushed away comes back a moment later.  At the library there was a fun exhibit on robots where the kids got to build robots and control other robots.  There was also a super cool marble run type toy and a bin for searching for dinosaur bones.

Today was a rain and sun all mixed together kind of day.  The kids didn't let it cramp their fun though.  They canoed, played at the beach and rode ponies between rain showers.  Michael is still absolutely loving the water.  He plays like a wild thing until he is cold then climbs up the nearest parent and cuddles while shivering.
