Folks, we have a second grader!

Summer went by way too fast for Barrett!  The start of school is here.  And, though he wasn't ready for summer to end, Barrett is off to a great start in second grade.  He has made new friends, is enjoying seeing old buddies and thinks his teacher is the nicest ever!  Here are some pics of the first day of school.

Brooklyn turned 5 last week. It is so hard to believe!  She has a build a bear party with some girlfriends. She was thrilled!  It was cute to watch all of the little girls pick out their animals and outfits.

 We finished up with cake and ice cream and opening presents.  Brooklyn was very specific about her cake.Chocolate with chocolate icing and blue writing.  So thats what we made.

On her actual birthday, we had pancakes for breakfast with candles.  Went to the pool.Played and watched a movie. And then had breakfast for dinner at her request.

Finishing Summer

Summer is coming to a close.  We have one week before Barrett goes to 2nd grade and a few more till Brooklyn starts preschool. Where did the summer go?
Here's a wrap of out last few weeks of summer.
Kellee and Anthony and Olivia came to visit us for a weekend in late July.  We had fun loving on Olivia, there was lots of basketball contests, swimming, and eating.  The adults even got to go on a double date while the kids were with the sitter.

 We went to Houston a few times.  The kids spent a weekend with my parents while Derek and I had the weekend to ourselves.  My transmission went  out on my way to Houston, so I ended up staying in Houston for several days with the kids.  We had a fun time relaxing, swimming and hanging with Nana and Teddy

We went on Lake Travis for an afternoon and had fun skiing and tubing and swimming.

We went to Houston in August to celebrate Bob's 70th birthday.  We went to dinner with the family and got to spend time together celebrating my wonderful fatherinlaw.

My newest nephew was born this past weekend and I go to go meet him and love on him for a few hours.  He's precious!

We've also been swimming alot, had some sleepovers, played with friends, slept late, hung out as a family and enjoyed lots of cool treats. Sadly summer is coming to an end, but it has been a fun summer for us all!

Summer Camps

Barrett and Brooklyn each went to camp this summer.Brooklyn went to Camp Sunshine.  It is put on by some girls in the neighborhood and Brooklyn has a blast. She did crafts, learned cheers and some dances. She had a great time!

Barrett went to basketball camp.  He learned a lot of skills and improved in his week at camp.  He had so much fun! He also got to meet AJ Abrams. He is really into basketball right now.
