When moving back to the mainland Rich's parents let us take Grandpa Tomlinson's old kitchen table which is around 80 years old to Washington with us. Rich tackled the project of sanding it down and re-staining it. It turned out so beautiful and we love it so much. Thanks to Brandon for giving us the stain to finish it. A finished picture will be posted soon. The picture below is of Rich putting in our AC Unit in our bedroom. The weather here is not like we thought it would be. I guess we didn't do our homework very well. It has been above 100 degrees for the past 2 weeks. The night Rich got the AC unit in we both slept like a baby.

Last week I made 5 batches of freezer jam: Strawberry, Strawberry Apricot, Raspberry Apricot, Strawberry Raspberry. Oh they all taste so good, and thanks to everyone for the free fruit. Nathan wanted to help out so his job was putting Cheerios in the empty pectin boxes. He was so proud of himself, thinking he was helping mommy so much.

Yum, Strawberries!!
