June turned quickly into July. We had a CALDERWOOD family reunion. The first summer get together in many years. We started with lunch in Saratoga Springs while we determined if the road to the cabin would allow vehicles to pass. It was so good to see Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins that I haven't seen in a long while. Again it was nice to have them meet Quincy as well.

June 27, 2009 It can be frustrating feeding a failure to thrive child when all they want to do is chew the bottle. I need the milk in his belly not out and dripping down his neck and back. He did this so much this month. We finally got smart and started putting a blanket under him so clean up would be easier.
Quincy didn't know what to think about his first time in the swimming pool. We wasn't too into the floaty, but as soon as I took him out he was kicking and enjoying himself more. The water was warm, but outside was still chilly for us since we were use to HOT HOT HOT in Ghana. I put him on the biggest sweater ever and finished swimming with Madison while he hung out in the stroller.
June 22, 2009 Madison and her friend Campbell set up a snowcone stand in compitition with Campbell's sister and a friend who had a lemonade stand down the road. I was surprised when the pair went around the neighborhood to find customers. Madison was quite determined to make money to buy her fish.
Later that day we counted her money. She was upset when I told her she needed to pay some as tithing until I showed her the large about she gets and the small amount Heavenly Father received.
