Maybe life is a more accurate reason as to why I haven't blogged in a loooong time. I missed posting about birthdays and other special events, but here's a quick recap through pictures of what we've been up to these past few months.
Mostly we play, play, and play...the boys are so happy to be out of school for summer. Yes, that's correct. I'm going to try my hand at this stay at home mom business for the summer. I quickly realized yesterday that when you try not to spend money (even at Chick fil A or on frozen yogurt) that you can quickly run out of things to do...sad but true. Drew finished his long run at Open Arms ---the best school ever! I was the blubbering mom on the last day. I've just loved this school. Even though Grady will still be there, it was the end of an era with Drewman graduating from their pre-K program. He will be starting at Manning Oaks - the elementary school up the street in August. Grady returns to Open Arms and starts with Ms. Faye & Ms. Jackie - two teachers who just loved Drew, and we love them. We're excited for both of them as they start new chapters. Drew discovered his LOVE for all things math...double digit addition and word problems thanks to his awesome teacher, Ms. Bethany. And Grady discovered his voice...he NEVER stops talking, so Dave and I are working on our patience.
So here's what we're up to this summer:
We manage to go to the local YMCA, so I can run on the Greenway trail while the boys play. We spend a lot of time at the pool with friends and have playdates at the park too. Drew has been taking swim lessons at the Y and is doing very well. I see summer swim league in our future, and I can't wait! Grady and I are going to do a mommy & me swim lesson class with Hudson and Chels starting next week while Drew goes to Vacation Bible School with his neighborhood friends.So yeah, school got in the way of my blogging... We leave for a week long trip to Destin on June 16th with my parents and Jay's family. We're spending the week with my dad's college roommates and their families. It should be fun and crazy! Then we're home for a week and off on our 20 hour road trip to RochVegas to see Dave's parents and a few friends along the way.

Grady had to get in on the action too....surprise, surprise

Brotherly love (check out the mohawk on Drewman compliments of his daddy)
