Apples...apples...apples:)

Part of the Scheuer fall family tradition is apple picking. This is sometimes the time during which I try to take the kids' school pictures. Some were successful, some were not:).




This one's pretty good...


Um, yeah, I don't think so:)


(I teased Isaiah and told him that we were going to use this one for his school picture. He was not happy.)


A little better.


Ben trying to sink his teeth into an apple.


Decent family picture (minus Mom:))


Come on guys...just one lousy picture!


Ahhh, there we go:)

Labor Day Weekend 2010

A few weekends ago, we had our time at the cabin with our best friends, the Tiedtke's. The weather wasn't warm enough or calm enough to take the boat out on the lake, but we had a fantastic weekend anyway. It's friends like the Tiedtke's that you can have fun with, no matter what you are doing. We love you guys!

Go-Kart fun:)


April & Elsi



Drew and Noah introduced the Scheuer family to a Boy Scout tradition that Drew did when he was a young boy--Tree Tipping. When you go through a forest, you look for a tree that looks like it is dead. Then, you proceed to rock it back and forth until its roots come out of the ground and hopefully doesn't hit any innocent bystander. (See Noah's illustration below.)

I'm not sure what the fine is for "Tree Tipping" in a state park, but I'm hoping I don't find out. April and I made sure we were far ahead of the criminals so that we could make a break for it if any park rangers came by;).



Drew and Steve's turn.




Drew...this log looks slippery!




Dad...this is how it's done!




April on caffeine. Elsi, being Elsi:)




Happy Noah...Bored Noah...Bi-Polar Drew


How many crazy people can you cram on a loveseat?

Summertime

It's hard to believe that summer has come and gone and that I haven't posted for 6 months! My camera was out of commission for about 1 month, due to the fact that I tried to clean the inside of my Canon DSL. I didn't realize that you weren't supposed to do that. Oops;).

Anyhoo, summer was hot and great. The kids and I spent over a week by ourselves at our cabin up north. Unfortunately Steve doesn't have any vacation time, so I had to figure out a way to use mine up. We went during the 2nd week of August and the Lord blessed us with 4 days that were above 90 degrees. We don't have AC at the cabin, so we spent those 4 days out on the boat. The boys were so helpful assisting me in launching and taking out our 24 foot pontoon boat, I couldn't have done it without them!

Steve was very lonely with out his family around and we missed him terribly. We were so glad to see him and his folks when then joined us for the end of our vacation for a couple of days.





I love his hair like this, but he had to get it cut for school. :(
