Riding the waves
 Samuel and Emmaline
Bennett messing around
We have been told that the reason why this beach is so empty is because of the number of sharks there. Last time we went Emmaline said she saw dolphins. I saw the fins but never saw them jump. This time, as we were on the beach relaxing, Samuel was watching something. I looked just in time to see 2 large sharks , about 100 yards away in the water. I did not get my camera out in time for a picture.  There was a row of men a little away from us baiting sharks. They also saw the sharks and got up. I wish we could have seen them reel one in.

Bike Ridding

When we moved here only Emmaline knew how to ride a bike. We started to teach brigham, who seemed to pick it up in no time. Bennett, feeling left out picked it up even quicker..and Brigham taught him in one night!! The kids ride their bikes up and down the lane with the other kids for hours. They recently figuered out a way to include Madaline. So far, no accidents..I am hoping it stays that way!
