Settling into Ohio

It's been almost 2 months since we moved into our house in Akron, Ohio.  We live near a nice park named Firestone, after the man who founded the rubber company here.

The girls love to walk or ride bikes to the park to play.  Maggie learned to ride a bike a few weeks after we got here.  She like to ride around the block on sidewalks whenever she can.  Lydia and Maggie had soccer camp in the park for a week.  They loved it!  

Maybe that will be a good experience to get them ready for 1st and 2nd grade in September.  It will be their first time in American school.  Firestone Elementary School is adjoins the park.

We just returned from summer vacation at Lake Erie.  Renee and family have spent a week in a white cabin overlooking the lake for the last 31 years.  The girls enjoyed 6 nights of splashing in the lake and spending time with their cousins.  Six girls under 7 years old was an adventure. 
Add to both sets of parent grandma and grandpa to even the score at six adults for six kids.  A great time was had by all.

Soon we'll travel out to Washington state for more summer fun with the grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles out there.

Hi Bergevin Family and Lydia,
We are glad to hear of your enjoyable summer fun so far. We are so happy you live near a park and lake Erie and get to see family and all! Great job at the soccer camp Lydia,too! You were glad to have a sister to go with weren't you? It helps...God has given you sister friends for getting used to Ohio and America together! Yay!! We are praying for you all here at Monroe Alliance Church and are excited to know that Eric is working out a visit for us all too. We want to confirm your address as 228 E. Archwood, is that right? With Lydia's birthday soon, can we just send the card and gift money to you directly? Don't want to miss it! You may be on the road and if so, is your mail being taken care of?? Thanks for letting me know. Enjoy!! Love, Judy Foust, Monroe, MI
