End of Summer

A lot has happened in the last few weeks of summer. I wanted to dump some of my phone pictures onto the blog so I don't forget the moments, and so I can delete them. I bought a water slide at a garage sale. It has been a bit hit these last few weeks.
Each time we go to Pizza Ranch, I take a picture of Andy's face. SO adorable. I also love his sleeping habits.
He has had a few dates with Charlotte:)
The nursery at church...
I wanted to test out my new phone camera and the sunset was cool, so I took some photos with Andy.
We went to visit Ezra and saw 5 deer in John's parents housing development.
I found another awesome garage sale purchase in the last few weeks. Fun for hours (and hopefully years).
John created a football field in our backyard which was fun...
Andy had hat day at school, I forgot to take a picture during the day, but I took one at night before bed.
The boys have been doing plenty of projects lately

School Begins

Andy started 3-year old preschool and is in the Llama room (with mostly other 4 year olds). He is not with his best friends (including Pippa and Lucas), but is still loving it. He got a new backpack this year, I'll have to take a picture of it. Oh and "minja turtle" is not a typo. That is how he says Ninja right now.
Jay started Kindergarten at my school this year. People keep making comments like "I remember when he was just a bun in the oven". But they also think he is super cute. On the way to school the first day he kept saying things like..."Mom, haven't I grown a lot since I was a baby!" or "Man, can you believe I am in Kindergarten." I thought it was odd because he had NEVER said anything like that before, but I was too focused on the day that I had to teach, that I didn't cry. He was great the first day. The second day apparently he cried for a bit because he wanted to "give his mommy another hug", but he got over it.
He said he still wants to be a Paleontologist, but mostly so he can watch a lot of dinosaur movies like Jurassic World.
First Day! I wore Broncos colors because it was the last pre-season game that night, and because I matched my room.
Here's to 2015-2016!

More Iowa vacation Aug 2015

We finished out camping by building an awesome sandcastle. In Decorah, we went to the falls, the fish hatchery, and a cool park. I ran out of time to finish this one, but here are some cute pictures

Iowa Vacation 2015 day 1 &2

We slept in York for the first time to break up our trip. It was great! The boys were excited to see cousins:
Grandpa and grandma took the boys boating for the first time:
The normal picture, and then zoomed in...
We also took the boys camping... They had so much fun playing star wars, eating smores, telling stories (but not ghost stories), catching fish and muscles, and getting dirty! Thank you Grandpa and Grandma.
