July 4, 2015 - Who is this mysterious man?




Ah...Ben!


Having fun with sparklers!

Noah lit a fountain inside of a cement block that was LOADED with bottle rockets:


Dinner with Fam

July 23, 2015 - This evening, we ate dinner at a BBQ to celebrate Sandy's 77th birthday!


Blue Skies Smiling at Me!

July 29, 2015 - I was driving home and noticed that the blue skies were particularly beautiful:



So, I headed to an old fire lookout tower that overlooks our valley.
I hadn't been in this thing in probably 9 years - and I remember it was in rough shape back then!



Definitely not recommended if you're afraid of heights!


Click the photo for the full panorama







Yes...very little in the way of safety precautions :D



Are you afraid of heights?  Would you still try to climb the tower?

(Take into account that there's wind at the top and some of the floorboards are a bit loose!)

Masquerade Ball - II

May 25, 2015 - Here are the final photos from the Masquerade Ball from Memorial Day.



These look like promotional shots for the Savoy Ballroom :P



The ballroom was just beautiful with the wooden floors and those chandeliers and lit columns






"Yes...you're mask is just a bit creepy, Ben."








Remember, remember, the fifth of November!

Well, thankfully, we were still in May.

Independence Day Celebration

July 3, 2015 - This afternoon we gathered to celebrate our nation's Independence Day.
We began with a short program to remember the history of our founding and the signers of the Declaration:




Mr. Martin




Mr. Smith talks about the importance of the church's voice in civil affairs


Mr. Z talks about Independence Day celebrations of the past


Several of the men took turns reading parts of the Declaration of Independence:



Mr. Belley reads the Declaration de L'Independance for the French-speaking patriots. :)


Proverbs 31:16 just popped into mind when I saw this photo and her body language:
"She considers a field and buys it; 
From her earnings she plants a vineyard."



Time to take down some British soldiers!


Sporting an official licensed GTC polo ;)





Height disparity





The evening ended with English Country Dancing and fireworks!
