1/2 Summer

So summer is truly half over.  This is my favorite time of year, as I think I have mentioned previously.  So yes, I am somewhat sad that we are moving closer to fall.  We have been enjoying every last minute of daylight around here.  I was telling Al and Em that the boys and I have been living every summer day to the fullest.  We have been having morning activities, afternoon activities, and some dinner activities - hopefully to be followed by sleeping activities!

We have recently:

 Had a zoo day

Baked (and enjoyed!) 

Crafted (At Vacation Bible School) 

And slept!  Phew!  That is a lot for a little guy!

Make sure to read Allyson's blog for updates on Archie.  He was doing well when we saw him last night after dinner.  We are so thankful that they were persistent and went in to the hospital!

Back to school

Logan is back to school...already. It seemed like he was the first one on the planet to start back to school. I am sad he is back - and he is too - I like having him home full time.

Brody started back yesterday too. He is studying Arctic animals in school and is loving that - Penguins are his absolute favorite! Even Colter has school now, he started in Moms Morning Out yesterday. For a couple of hours once weekly, he plays in our church nursery and I get to do some running around sans kids. It is a beautiful thing!

We had a great time in Memphis! The drive went really well with all 3 kids. We left at 4:30am, and all 3 kids went back to sleep until 7:30 or so. After we made it there, we had tons of fun!
Wednesday - we went swimming, then to dinner
Thursday - we spent 6 hours at the Memphis zoo, then the big boys went to see a movie
Friday - we hung out, then went to the Childrens museum

After the kids went to bed, we got to spend some quality time with my best girlfriend and her husband. It was a fantastic trip!
