There's no better dad than #1 and #2's dad, so we had a fun weekend celebrating him!

We spent most of the week visiting my parents and sister near Houston, Texas. Lee and I were also able to attend the Southern Baptist convention. We hadn't been to Texas in a year and a half, but the boys seemed right at home. They were comfortable there and did great!
Kemah boardwalk. The boys had fun on the rides. #1 even tried rides he's never done before. #2 was focused on seeing the ocean. When he did see it, he wanted in. We kept him on the boardwalk and nice and dry though.
The boys did well on the flights. On the way there, we left home at 9:00 pm and got there close to midnight. They both slept though so it was easy. We came home Friday afternoon, when they were fully awake. It felt longer, but we survived.
Houston is hot, so we had to find ways to keep cool, like the pool and splash pad!

It was #2's last week of school, so #1 and I had a few project to do around the house. First on our list was get the garage cleaned out!
We went to the library and nearby park one afternoon. We wanted to check out a few books before the public school kids got out and starting coming to the library.
My favorite spot.
Last day of school!
Reading a book.

The unofficial start of summer brought high temperatures around here this week! We soaked up lots of sun!
On Monday, Lee and #1 went fishing at a local lake. They didn't catch anything this time but they enjoyed it.
Two days this week we got out the blow-up pool. It's always lots of fun for the boys!

I grew up in the great state of Oklahoma, so we spent time this week praying for my home state and on the phone with my mom who was on the phone with family in Oklahoma. Everyone in our family is safe, but we are continuing to pray for the recovery efforts. (By the way, did you know the Southern Baptist Convention is the 3rd largest disaster relief organization in the US, behind the Red Cross and Salvation Army? You can help them meet physical and spiritual needs by donating online.)
We think (hope!) the temperatures will stay above freezing now, so we planted our garden. It's smaller than in years past since Lee and I are writing a book this summer and I really won't have as much time to garden and can what we grow. We planted cucumbers, tomatoes, and peppers. We decided to add a little squash and zucchini, but that's it!
Both boys only have a couple more weeks of school left! #2 goes back for three weeks in July, so #1 will do a summer school session then too. We do 180 days of homeschooling just like the public school kids do, but we have the flexibility to take longer breaks around the holidays and make up for it during the summer. This week #1 did a math test and started a new reading work book. Math is his best subject so the test was easy. The reading work book wasn't as easy; he told Grandma he had to do it all with this new work book (read and write!).
