The school sent J to Nashville, TN for 4 days so Lita (my Mom) came and saved us!! We always have so much fun when she visits and this time was no exception. We went to the zoo, to the Riot Zone, out to dinner, shopping (my personal favorite ), to the park, deep fried a lot of food, went to the farmers market, put on a play, played on the computer, jumped on the trampoline, we had TONS of fun!! Thank you Mom for coming to spend time with us and having so much fun!!! One night we went to Applebees for dinner and a face painter was there doing free face painting, she was amazing, a true artist, the kids' (and mom's) faces looked great!! More pics of the fun trip to come!!!
I know it's a shocker that I'm behind!! We start our school year in August and the nice thing about that is we are done in May!! This year went by so fast for us, Sis was in 1st grade-going all day, eating lunch at school, loved her Teacher Mrs. B, and really latched on to reading. She loves it!! JD finished Kindergarten-this guy has really come out of his shell, he loved his teacher Mrs. Williams, and had so much fun with his best friend Brock in his class! He learned a lot and did a great job!! We're full into the swing of things in the summer and JJ, Jacob, and I have really loved having these to at home all day to play and help out!
Who ever knew I would have so many boys in my family! The boys outnumber the girls 2 to 1 and I love it!!! I think about all the girl-drama I had in my family growing up (and maybe still have a little ;) love you sissys) and am so thankful that usually the noise in my house is wrestling & burping (which may also have been the same amongst me and my sisters growing up!! hahaha). All of my boys, and Sissy treat me so well, I am so thankful for them and have so much fun with them!! This Saturday at our house, J got dressed in a blue t-shirt, khaki shorts and a hat, so the 2 big boys did the same to be like Daddy and of course we had to get Jacob in on the fun!!
Love these kids more than I can say. They are helpful, crazy, funny, crazy, silly, crazy, smart, crazy, beautiful, crazy, kind, crazy, sweet, and did I mention CRAZY!!! I'm so grateful for these babies who keep my life full of joy and very interesting!!
