This weekend Susan and Erin took Mari, Cameron, Elliot and Hope up to St. Bens/St. Johns for a college visit.
Today was the first cross country meet of the season. It was supposed to be last week, but that got canceled because of the heat.
When we walk Ruben in the evenings we like to do a loop around the prairie, at the back of which is a big pile of dirt. We call it Mt. Clive. It is a great place to let Ruben run and view the sunset.
Susan and I went on a date to the State Fair Grandstand to see Ben Harper and The Chicks. It was a hot date.

The Lieslands love the Iowa State Fair – or at least Rose, Lucia and I do. Susan likes it, too, but for a few fewer hours than us. Mari went to the fair 2 or 3 times, but never with us.
Today I drove Andrew back to college. It started with a red rainbow in the morning, included a stop at target, some tears, and a long drive home.
This summer we have been enjoying taking Ruben for a walk around the prairie near our house. He loves running off the leash, Lucia and Rose love the giant pile of dirt, and we love the sunsets.
Mari had her senior pictures taken this evening, with Rachel, the former Reagen babysitter who also took Andrew’s pictures.
Mari’s senior pictures are coming up this week and Susan, Lucia, Rose, Ruben and I went location scouting, in the rain.
This summer all of the kids are working.
