Week of 6/26/22 – 7/1/22

The Negotiator is training to beat the Reader in swimming!

The Negotiator and I went for a walk (with Hope).

The Reader and I went for a walk too (with Hope).

We harvest the first squash!

And this was a few weeks ago. The title for this image should be : What Husband brings to the sink after cleaning up his room.


This is how they ride the scooters.

They started learning tennis. They like it so far!

The Negotiator built a tower of paper cups one day!

The Reader started Cross Country too.


Since the Pandemic, Mom has been giving haircuts to the boys. There were a few “oops” moments, but now I am getting used to it (a bit).


Cooking has never been my favorite thing to do, but I think I got used to it over the years.

We had “sam-gyup-sal”, which is the Negotiator’s favorite food, out on the porch one day too.


It’s summer. And it’s hot. Really hot. So we have been having some fun in the water.

We’re using a lot of water, but it’s worth it. The kids are getting some exercise and refreshment outside… Aside from being a bit mischievous.

Mini Mastadon

The annual Mini Mastadon competition was held this last weekend. Two competitors showed up from the Kirby family. The Negotiator did the whole thing.

The Negotiator got wet, but enjoyed himself. He’s getting pretty fast!
