I am sooo glad summer is finally here! We have been busy the last month and I haven't been blogging! May closed out Marcus's preschool and Jack's 5th grade year, wow I cannot believe how fast the year has went by! Jacks final elementary career ended with a great 5th grade rendition of a Grease classic (so cool), Awards day where he recieved a presidential academic award for getting all A's and B's his elementary career, and student council award. The last day of school we had the 5th grade picnic at the park, it was fun but also sad to see the year come to a close, the young boy phases into pre-teen status:( .
We have been to the lake and done some fishing and putt putting, garage saling. Here at home daddy built the boys a big new playset outside, played outdoors ALOT, signed up for swim lessons for Marcus and Ben, getting ready for VBS, went to the drive-in movies for the first time with the kids and are about to build a mini barn for more storage, phew....all this in about 3 weeks time!! I told you we have been BUSY:)
I am thoroughly enjoying staying at home fulltime with the boys, it is exactly where I want to be.
I will have to admit that I am missing my old neighborhood and our big yard, but not the high house payment or taxes. It is an adjustment for all of us. And I know that it is all part of the big plan and the sacrifices we make now will all be worth it in the long run! We all have our health, happiness, financial stablility(for once, LOL) and eachother! I am BLESSED:)

It is is fall, the leaves are falling everywhere!!
