Abby is a very creative girl and loves to sing, dance and do arts & crafts. She finds great joy in making gifts for people. She has become an emergent reader and is doing a really good job. I am so proud of her reading ability and we continue to encourage her to read as much as possible. Over the summer, I have been reading chapter books to her at bedtime. I still add in a Dr. Seuss book whenever possible just to keep things fun.
Abby is a very physical kid and loves to play. Her favorite thing to do is have tickle fights. Hal makes sure to have one with her everyday before he leaves for work. This makes her very happy and let's her know that there is always time for fun.
Abby loves going to church both on Sunday & Wednesdays. She especially likes Sundays because she gets to help out by being an usher when the offering is being collected.
Abby & I got the chance to take a road trip to North Dakota this summer to see Great Grandma Sack. This was Abby's first long car ride and she did great ( thanks to the Victorious DVD that was playing all the way there and back ). Abby got to see grandma's house and also the University of North Dakota. She asked me if she could go to school there when she got older and of course, I said YES!
Well, I am going to stop here for now. Hopefully, we will be able to keep this blog updated a little better.

I want to thank Susie and Dean for their hospitality and also for sending us home with a bunch of great memories.

focus this blog on our trip to Como Zoo with Nana & Papa Siemers on June 20, 2007. We went early in the day, arriving just shortly after the zoo opened. We had a very nice time and Abby really liked all of the different animals. She got to see giraffes, lions, tigers, zebras, gorillas but her favorite animals were the polar bears. There were a couple of them playing in the water and her turned to us and said that the polar bears were "big Sammys" (our large white dog).

Today we took a trip to Fish Lake (located a couple blocks from home) to have fun on the sandy beach and play in the lake. I took Abby there yesterday for her first excursion of that sort but I didn't go in the water then. Our family trip today was a huge success and we all had a great time. Abby is so happy when she's outdoors and I hope we get the chance in the future to go camping and other fun activities like that. We don't add to this blog as often as we should but with the small amount of time we have to ourselves we have to pick and choose what things to get done on any given day.
Here are some of the pics we took today. Take care and thanks for stopping by.

lots of practice to perfect this technique.
Springtime is just so Awesome!!!
try to look right center into the lens and carefully push the shutter.
Also you will see a picture of her first ride on the lawn tractor with Grandpa Siemers. She loved it and just calls it the chine (machine).
Have a great week. Love, Hal

But having said that, I should also mention what a sweetie she can be. Today, Hal called me when they were on their way home from playing at the park and Abby actually had a conversation with me on the phone. That just absolutely made my day! Her vocabulary has grown a lot over the past couple of months and she is learning new things everyday.
Here are a couple new pictures.
