Open House!

Visiting the boys’ school this year was fun.  They are enjoying their year so much.  They wanted us to meet their music and PE teachers. It was nice to see where they spend their days and to hear from their teachers how they’re both doing a great job.

First up was Patrick’s classroom.  I informed them that I would be inspecting their desks and lockers to make sure they were staying organized.

That's my boy in the middle of all those girls. ;)

On to Mac’s classroom.  We got to take a tour of his room then we took a family picture in the teacher’s photo booth.  I hope we get to see a copy of that one! My kind of fun. :)IMG_5022

Mac had a good laugh at this guy.  Everyone had the same template, so they each had a fat head and body. :)

Labor Day Weekend

Day 1: Relax. Don’t clean. Daddy recouping from bronchitis.

Day 2: Off to enjoy a day at the lake with Meme and her family. (Thank you, Uncle Luke for a wonderful time!)  Come home to Daddy feeling worse. Regret not cleaning on Day 1.

We are beyond amazed at how fast he’s growing.  You’d think I would have been prepared for that having had two babies that grew up way too fast. But it caught me by surprise.
