Kids Say the Darndest Things

Dear Kelly,

I saw this and thought of you. Love, Drew

PS- Your dogs are loud.

I'm seriously questioning our parenting skills.

Did you know they have sisters.......

and other brothers too. Friendship has gone to another level, now everyone isn't just friends, they're each others siblings. On facebook Hunter has listed 5 brothers and 4 sisters plus Drew.

This is one of their sweet sisters

She brought Drew cookies the night before school started- I couldn't throw the box away without taking a picture.

Too Pretty Not to Take a Picture

In the spirit of the first week of school, I've made dinner every night, I repeat EVERY NIGHT . Plus lunches, plus breakfast. Our kitchen has been hoppin' like something out of Mel's diner. Last night being no different I made this beautiful creation.

But did anyone show up to eat it.......no! After a killer band practice Drew went to a friends house and Hunter went to Bible study. So Joe and I got to have a peaceful dinner alone-and let's be honest, all the food prep is really for him. Drew and Hunter would much rather have a meal that comes in a bag from a take out window.

All in a Days Work

There is something seriously wrong when Hunter leaves the house before the majority is awake. Like leave the house to the tune of 5:50am! We got a note home saying "cross country is in full swing" how can that be on DAY 2?! And I was feeling sorry for Drew because he starts school at 7:30 and stays after for band practice until 5:30 in 100plus degree heat.

He's in the middle row-light blue and white hat.

But he didn't have to do this.....end his day at a cotillion meeting and walk arm in arm with a girl!

Don't feel too bad, he got cookies as payment for pain and suffering following his 17 hour activity packed day.

To celebrate the first day of school- A and I got everyone cupcakes. And JUST for quality assurance, we try them too. I was fully expecting to be underwhelmed by this new craze. But Ooh, La, La did not disappoint. Their cupcakes are divine!

Fish and the Dog

Drew's first day of his first year in high school, making him a "fish" and Hunter's first last day in junior high, making him "top dog."

Band Camp

Tonight marked the end of 3 weeks of summer band camp. They showed parents what they've learned and encouraged them, if they were brave, to march with them.

One of those Sousaphones has Hunter's name written all over it- and he can't wait to get his hands on it next year.

See you on the field- first game is 9/9!

The Boys of Summer

In keeping with the theme "we vacation separately", parents verses kids. Here are pictures from their big adventure out west. They saw Aunt, Uncles, Cousins, Grandparents, Mickey Mouse, a TV set, the Pacific ocean and so much more.......

As in "legitimate." I guess they give permits to anyone......... So, if you see either of our cars and are cut off, tailgated, or sped past......it's NOT US.....it's our 15 year at the wheel!!!!

Session 7 is a Slice of Heaven

It's that time of year again, Camp Travis! Our only hope was that Hunter won't break an arm! Their photographer got come great shots. We loved logging-in at night to see all the fun they've have that day.
