Memorial Day

Cul-de-sac cookout.
Water balloons were the big excitement of the night. Ethan and Isaac learned how to fill and tie the balloons themselves, which was so nice!
The Thornes came along with us to the Memorial Day parade.

Run for Fun Day

I was able to enjoy the first grade ‘run for fun day’ with Isaac. We had 30 minutes to run as many laps around the track as we could. I let Isaac set the pace and was proud of him for running 2 miles in the humidity of a hot May morning!

Isaac’s teacher is standing on the left. She was such a great teacher for him!
Go Isaac!
Isaac and our neighbor, Austin.
Now that was a good Popsicle and well deserved!

Soccer Buddies

This little boy has been in all of Lincoln’s soccer sessions. His name is Noah and Lincoln looks forward to seeing him every week.

Stretching.

Puddle or Pond?

This puddle was left near our house after a heavy rain. Oh, to be a kid again. I would have loved this!

Alex Turns 3!

Alex had his party at the park. The weather was perfect and my kids had a blast!
Warren gave the boys fresh haircuts just before the party. They weren’t happy one bit with how short Daddy made their hair. But, they look so handsome!
Presents, yay!
Lincoln wanted to open one of Alex’s new guys.   It’s so hard saying  “no” to him sometimes!

Down on the Farm

With only a few days of school remaining before summer break, Lincoln and I soaked up our one on one time with some fun activities. On this day we joined Kari and the boys for a day filled with fun boy stuff.  And there was a lot for them to see and do here!

It was even educational with an up-close lesson in biology.  (My favorite pic of the day!)
A puppet show!
The play barn was really cool with lots of different activities for the kids to enjoy.
Kari and sweet Zachary.
The boys even went fishing. Lincoln didn’t catch anything (he didn’t seem to mind, though). But…
Owen caught one!
Happy Alex.
Pony rides.
The cousins taking a minute to pose for us.
Lincoln’s best buddy (or as Owen would say BFF)!

Mother’s Day

The cul-de-sac dads are awesome. They played kickball with the kids for two hours to give the moms a break.  I appreciated it so much and the boys had a blast.  As if that wasn’t enough, Warren then took the boys to Barnes and Noble and I stayed home all by myself.  They returned with my favorite coffee. I should mention all the homemade cards and pictures the boys made for me. (Ethan made me a coupon book with a coupon that was good for “cleaning part of the house.”  After all, who wants to clean the whole house?) They worked hard and Isaac even helped Lincoln make something for me. I even ran out of space on my refrigerator! I had such a GREAT day. I’m blessed!

Spoiled

Mickey has a good life and he knows it! He rewards us often with mice, moles, and birds to show his love. Aren’t we lucky?

What time is dinner?
