This is one of Sophie's favorite activities, she loves to ride with Joshua when he is mowing the lawn.
I never posted this picture of Joshua heading off on a major back packing trip with the scouts this summer. They carried everything they needed themselves and had a lot of fun!
Some of the crew...the night before the big trip most of them slept at my house. I was worried they would be too tired to hike.
Payton, Joshua, and TJ after the campout getting their awards. These are some great boys.
A few weeks ago Joshua and I took a short trip to Utah-just the two of us. It was really fun. We stopped to say hi to my cousin Emily and ended running over to a minor league baseball game. It was so fun. It was a perfect night for baseball and all these girls are so cute.
Annie started Preschool. She just loves it. She wishes she rode a bus like the boys, but the Suburban will have to do for now.
She always wants to be prepared...water bottle and all, just like the big boys.
She gets goodbye kisses from everyone.
This little girl is growing up big time.
I had to include this picture of Sophie since she makes this face all the time. I don't want to forget it.
Sophie "helping" Annie get out the door.
"Enough with the photo shoot already, Mom, sheesh."
These are our awesome neighbors. This cute little baby, Lola, is their NINTH baby. You heard me right, nine kids. In their spare time they organized a HUGE community fundraiser for Randy's brother. He has a rare form of Leukemia and is in need of a bone marrow transplant. These guys did an amazing job and it was a great success.
Joshua (along with friend TJ) got in on the action and served yummy pulled pork sandwiches all night long. (We are talking 1000's here.) They had a lot of fun doing it.
Annie had a ball too...she was able to pal around all night with her two favorite girls.
They waited in line forever to get their faces painted. Pretty fancy.
She can't figure out why they have to go to school all day. (They are both in 1st grade.) I don't know what she would do without them down the street.
Well...these are a few things that Joshua, Annie, and Sophie have been up too. I will catch you up on James, Michael, and Luke next time.
