Summer is flying by!

Well, lots has been going on in the Schroeder house! We went camping with our church family a couple weeks ago, and then just got back Sunday from camping again with 28 students from our youth group. Each time was wonderfully spiritually refreshing. Joel did fantastic each time. He's such a trooper and easy going baby. I'll try to post some pictures from these trips soon.

Joel had his 6 month check up last week. He is now 14 pounds, 2 ounces, and 29 inches long. He is also in the age of discovery now. First it was his toes, then his tongue and the list keeps going. He is adorable! The pic below is from the day he found his tongue. It didn't go back in his mouth all day!
Another discovery is food! Joel began eating cereal a couple weeks ago, and loves it. He now eats (and wears) green beans and squash. We can no longer eat or drink without him getting very excited and trying to grab at our food. :)
Another blessing this month was a visit from our dear friend Laura Thien. We had a wonderful time together catching up and enjoying time together. Her time with us went by way too fast!

Well, now that we are in town for the rest of the summer, I am looking forward to updating this blog much more regularly. Thanks for your patience!
