June so far!

June has been jam packed so far, but we are looking forward to a slow week this coming week. The first full week of summer was spent doing lots of swimming, a day trip to Sullivan's Island and fun at Pine Island with friends. This past week was VBS with a little swimming in the afternoons. But, the end to this past week was not fun. Tyler ended up with pink eye and Robbie ended up with pink eye and strep throat! No fun! So, this weekend has been low key and just what we needed! Here are a few pictures from the last 2 weeks:

All our boys

Greyson enjoyed digging

He played so hard and passed out within 2 minutes of being in the car to head home

We just recently joined a co-op. This was our 2nd basket and we have loved it!! The boys had fun sorting through it all!

Vacation Bible School: Big Apple Adventure

During the Worship Rally on one of the VBS days, Robbie was asked to be a part! I don't think he would have agreed had he known it would involve holding a pigeon!!!!

It was so neat watching the adults let them all go at the same time!

Monday, June 6, 2011's been a long time!

I know some of you (mainly family) have been on me to update the blog!! :) A lot has happened so I'll do my best to update through the pictures! Let's see, since Easter, I ran in a 5 mile race with my 2 awesome running partners, Greyson turned 2, we became the new owners of a dog, Scott graduated from preschool, Tyler finished 2nd grade and he jumped off the high dive! We are very excited that summer is here, our schedule slows down, and we have lots of family time and fun things planned! Here are some pictures from the last month and a half.

The boys meeting Abby for the first time! We told the boys we were keeping her for the weekend for someone Robbie works with. But, it was actually a trial run to see how Tyler's allergies would do with a dog. After 4 days, he did amazingly well so we told the boys she was ours! They were so excited....well, Tyler was! His comment was, "We get to keep her forever?!?!" It was so cute! Scott was a little reserved because it was taking him some time to get used to her. She is a puppy and likes to bite and eat everything!

Greyson has no fear of Abby's playful side and puppy bites!

Our sweet, full of life, 3rd little boy Greyson turned 2 on May 7! It was truly hard for me to believe it. His little life has flown by so much faster than Tyler's and Scott's. He honestly turned from baby to big boy in no time. He is talking up a storm and makes us laugh quite often. He learns things so quickly and can use the Ipad all by himself with no problem! He is fearless and very independent. He wants to do things all on his own and thinks he is as big as his brothers. He is too funny with Abby. He tells her all the time..."No bite Abby" and "Abby Get Down". It makes me laugh! He lets her lick his hands, bite his fingers, and wrestle him! One day I found him sitting on her back while she ate her supper! We celebrated his birthday with a Farm party in Mimi and Pop's backyard.

Scott receiving his Wee Sing CD at church for memorizing some hymns...he was not liking the attention and everyone watching him! :)

Tyler receiving his hymnal for the hymns he memorized

Scott's preschool had a sweet graduation performance at the end of the year. Scott was a part of the 5 Green and Speckled Frogs. He did a great job!
This chapter of his life is over and it is very bittersweet. I can't believe it is time for him to go to Kindergarten! I know what to expect more this time around since we have been through it with Tyler, but it doesn't make it easy to see my little red growing up!

Receiving his certificate from his sweet teacher

The 1st Green and Speckled Frog...a friend got this amazing picture of Scott in mid air!

After graduation

Oh my sweet red head

We went to the pool for the first time of the summer last Sunday and Tyler got the nerve to jump off the high dive!!! I couldn't believe it!!

Scott's fun t-ball team at their end of the year party. He was on a wonderful team with some great boys and families! He had a blast and his love of baseball grew even more!!

Tyler and Scott are being rezoned to a new school in August. It is very bittersweet for us because Tyler has gained some of the most amazing friends at Midway who will not be going to the new school. I am so sad for him in this respect although I know we will keep in touch with them as well as gain new friends at Meadow Glen. These 2 boys have been such great friends for Tyler this year and over the last 2 years!

Scott joined us at Tyler's end of the year party. He has enjoyed Tyler's friends, too!

A little fun on the last day

Robbie is helping coach The Blowfish team again this summer. We went to the game Saturday night and last night! This will probably be one of the highlights of our summer!! :)

Tyler is playing in some golf tournaments this summer and he had his first one on Monday! He was a little unsure at first, but ended up having a great time!

We all went with Tyler to his first one, but I'm pretty sure that won't be happening again! 2 year olds and golf courses just don't mix! :) Greyson can't stop talking long enough to be out there! :)

The boys were so excited to make smoothies the other day....of course, Scott (my picky eater) did not like it! :)

Summer has just begun and we have a lot of fun things to do so, I will try to keep the blog updated more often! :)
