Home Work

We finished off some unfinished space in our house.  The kids had so much fun helping with the project.  They helped sand the drywall, install the trim moulding and even helped out with the carpet installation.  We are all enjoying the extra space.

 Anderson patiently waiting his turn.

 This is how Steel watched the action...he was not a fan of the compressor and nail gun.

Lots of serious ping pong battles are happening now!

Lots of summer swimming fun.  The kids are getting good at diving and swim like little fish.

Owen is 9!

We enjoyed a fun day celebrating Owen, Daddy and Papa as Owen's birthday was on Father's Day again this year.


Daddy made their afternoon by setting up a target and letting them shoot BB guns.  They both hit the target several times and enjoyed a special time with their daddy.

He blew out all 9 candles...wonder what he wished for?

Same expressions!

Happy Birthday to our sweet 9 year olds!  So hard to believe we are close to double digits.

Owen, You are such a sweet boy with a servant's heart.  You are an awesome big brother and such a loving boy.  We love you!

I don't know that any of us have ever looked forward to a vacation as much as we all did this year's.  To say we've been working hard lately is a huge understatement.  I'm so thankful for good kids that have rolled along with the crazy.  We so enjoyed our family time and slower pace along with lots of sun, sand and water!








Owen requested Medieval Times for his birthday dinner.  We all had fun.  Anderson refused to smile...said being a knight is serious business.
