Brothers at the Bus Stop

Here are the boys waiting for the comes bright and early at 6:39 a.m. Nothing like getting up in the dark. It goes against my very nature, but it sure does make for a more productive day!
#1 is really enjoying his 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Calley. Who wouldn't? She gives out candy before the tests! And #2 is getting to know new friends in Kindergarten with Mrs. May. He loves riding the bus with big brother.
Look forward to posts of #1 playing football, the new house color, some new fencing and #2's first lost tooth!

Beach Day

While we were in California, my Aunt & Uncle were camping at the beach, so we visited for a few hours. G & C love the beach; they were mad when we had to leave!

Palomar Mtn.

Our visit in June marked the first stay at the new log house on Palomar with Pop-Pop and Beppe. The boys had fun gettin' dirty and Garrett shot his first squirrel! Exciting times!

Boys Only Adventure Day

A few months back, Jeff was having a hankering to get outdoors. I had a ton of errands I needed to do so they boys took an afternoon trip without mom. They went out to Succor Creek State Park (I think it's actually in Oregon.)

They had a blast checking out some trails and being boys...Jeff got these great pictures of them. We'll probably try to go camping here in the fall; too many rattlers during the heat!

#1's 8th Birthday Party

Well, we held off on G's birthday party until the last day of school so we could have a "Pirate Pool Party"! 15 eight year olds for 4 hours is enough to cure me of birthday parties! Ian had fun being the center of attention. And he enjoyed finding left over pieces of cake on the tables!
