This Week: The End of Summer Countdown Is on!

A local park has a sensory garden we always have fun going to! #1 likes to work on the dam and #2 likes to get as wet as possible!

I love the quiet moments we have on our swing outside.

He's decided he really loves tire swings. The dizzier he gets, the better.

Enjoying an audio book!

Friends at church did a shower for #3! It was so much fun and came at exactly the right time since we found out on Friday that we'll be traveling to China next month! We're counting down the days and crossing things off the to-do list.

This Week: James's Least Favorite Week Ever

This will probably go down as #2's least favorite week ever. We potty trained and we went to a feeding therapist. He's not a fan of undies or trying new foods. He did great though and we will keep working on both in the couple of weeks we have before school starts again.

Got our potty training necessities! 

Every day he asked to wear a diaper instead. 

Trying new foods--steak and peppers!

My cucumbers didn't produce well, so I won't be able to make a lot of pickles, but we'll enjoy the ones I can make. And the brussel sprouts are coming in nicely. They grow at the base of the leaf stems. So interesting!

We've gone bowling almost every week this summer. #1 has gotten better and is enjoying it more now than he did when #2 beat him every time.

This Month: All the Pictures and All the Fun!

I can't believe I'm so behind on sharing pics this month! We've had three busy weeks in a row but are going into August with fewer activities on the calendar. Just what we need to get ready for #3 to come home in September! Here are some of the highlights from July!
We spent July 4th hanging out around the house together. 

#1 started 3rd grade July 1st!

Both boys had a fun week at our church's VBS. 

#1 and Lee enjoyed an afternoon of fishing and boating. 

We spent a week in Florida, celebrating my parents' 40th anniversary. We had a great time, as you can see!

This week our church hosted a sports camp! #2 was able to go this year, with help from his TSS. He participated in the day camp for younger kids. #1 did the full camp, including baseball, soccer, basketball, and kickball. He said basketball was his favorite!

This Week: Daddy Gone, Grandma Here!

What a fun and full week we had! Lee was down in North Carolina for doctorate classes, so Grandma flew in to help. We had busy mornings, laid back afternoons, and lots of fun together!

Hoping fresh flowers will make up for little messes around the house.

Trying to find all the countries playing in the World Cup. 

Everything he needs for a good day.

Making his favorite food with Grandma--deviled eggs!

#1 went to tennis camp a couple days this week. He had fun!

Keeping both eyes on the blonde head in the pool.

The thunder and lightning were a little scary, but less scary in Mom and Dad's bed.

#2 had some swing anxiety this week, but by the end of the week we conquered it and he was back to loving it!

It was also #3's birthday this week! We saw pictures of him celebrating with his class. We are thankful the teachers made him feel special!

Around Our Yard at the End of Spring 2014

We had a hot few days this week! I got out my real camera (instead of just the camera on my phone) to take some pictures of our fun in the backyard.
