New Fish in the House

It was decided by all the kids that the turtle was too smelly and needed his cage cleaned more than they wanted to do it, so we let him go and got Joseph this small tank with some flame tetras. He was excited because all three fish made it through the first night at home.

High School Volleyball News

Good news at the Stratton house. Mallory and Rachel tried out for the HS volleyball team last week. Mallory has played on the volleyball team for three years. Rachel tried out last year, but did not make the team. This year, they both made the team. We are very proud of them.

Taylor Wins a 5K

Taylor's name was in the paper because she won her age group in the first 5K she ever ran. The girl across the street came in third overall.


The one tomato has finally turned red.
This plant has two cucumbers.
So does this one.

Found a Wii

Since telling Joseph that I'd get him a Nintendo Wii for his birthday last week, we've been on the hunt for one. Rachel and Taylor made about 15 calls last night and found four in stock down by the beach. Joe went down there this morning and left them with only three.
Joseph and Bailey had a blast figuring out how it worked.
Joseph and Rachel played all sorts of fun games this evening.
Mallory and Rachel tried tennis, baseball, bowling and boxing.
