In mid-June, there was a day when the Schwan's truck stopped at our house. The driver was lucky that Dan was already home, because I probably would have just sent him on his way, especially as it was just about time for dinner. Dan has fond memories of Schwan's from his childhood, so the kids were excited when he got a box of ice cream treats.

Also in the middle of June, the twins had their regular dentist cleaning and checkup. Joseph was very upset because it wasn't his turn.
By that time in June, we had had our dog, Biscuit for a couple of months.

Time for basketball:

|Dominic studied the basket.|
|And the shot went in!|

It is amazing how killdeer birds will make their nests on the ground, then when something or someone approaches, the mama bird will start making noise and dragging her "broken" wing on the ground trying to lure the threat away from the nest. The kids liked seeing that in action.
|One crazy bird made a nest right in our driveway! See the egg? Eventually there were three.|
