Steel - He's everybody's buddy.  He was laying on the couch and heard dogs on TV...and started watching.  When the dogs were no longer on the screen, he went back to sleep.

Anderson and buddy Landon at lunch one day.  

Anderson and his kindergarten after-school buddies.  They went to visit their kindergarten teachers and traded hugs for snacks.

Helping at church

Mr. Dwayne was changing light bulbs at church while we were there for piano lessons and he took Owen up in the scissor lift.  When Anderson finished his lesson and wanted to go for a ride, Mr. Dwayne said no...but couldn't resist Anderson's pouty face and Anderson scored a ride as well.

First Day of School - 2015

The summer flew by...and now we have a third grader and a first grader.



 Best excited to be in the same class for the 3rd year in a row.

Part of their gang...the poor 3rd grade teachers...Owen's grade is rowdy and boy heavy. 
Anderson didn't get the teacher he wanted, but got the one that is the best fit for his personality.  Two of his 3 kindergarten besties are in his class which made him happy.

Family Vacation 2015

We enjoyed a wonderful week at the beach as a family.  We so needed the time together to refresh and relax.  We enjoyed the sand, ocean, pool, meals out and a baseball game.  We watched movies, played games, enjoyed 'night walks' as the kids call them and ice cream afterwards.   The pictures do no do the kids tans justice...they were so tan!
