Belated Pictures from Our Trips to Idaho and the Cabin

I've gotten really lax about posting here. Sorry. For the next two weeks we have only one boy at home. This week Jack is with my parents at the cabin and next week Miles will be there. From what I can tell, Jack doesn't miss us at all, haha. However, yesterday Miles had this conversation with Jack on the phone:

Miles: I really miss you.
Jack: Why?
Miles: Because....Because I really really love you.

How sweet is that? Immediately after, he ran to tell his dad that Jack was on the phone (we were at the park) and slipped and fell in a mud puddle. Doh!

In late June, we travelled to Idaho for my grandmother's memorial service. Here we are stopping on the way at Devil's Slide, which was always a big landmark for me and my family when we were growing up:

Here are the boys and their cousin, Caelan, under a tree I played under when I was their age. It's at the church where the service was held. I think it's one of the best pictures ever taken of the cousins. Maybe grandma helped?

In mid-July we went to the cabin. It was the best, most relaxing time we've had there since the boys were born. Now that they're older, it's just so much easier. Here are the boys with their bug keepers. Miles had a lot of fun catching bugs to put in them:

Famous People with HFM and/or Microtia

Someone on the microtia yahoo board shared this interesting article about Lincoln, which theorizes that he may have had hemifacial microsomia:

Lincoln may have had facial defect

It reminds me that Paul Stanley of Kiss has microtia.

Soccer Stars

Miles played soccer this summer and had a lot of fun. He scored 3 goals in the season! Here is the one from the last game. Notice how he had totally broken away down the pack: he carried it all the way down the field.

Here he is taking a break:

Jack desperately wanted to play, but was relegated to the sidelines. We've signed them both up for Fall.
