Final Days of Summer!

This post is really just a mish mash of pictures that I found on my camera from the end of July until now. We had a wonderful summer, but I have to admit that I was ready for it to end. Not the fun.. but, I was really to be back to a good regular schedule. We are creatures of habit and schedules around our house, so we needed that! I will post some back to school pics later this week! LK has started back already, but the boys don’t start until later this week with half days.

On one of Alyssa’s last days with us, she let the kids jump in soapy water on the trampoline! They had the best time!! Lys was AMAZING and I am SOOO sad that she has to leave us!! I’ve pretty much begged her to come back to us next summer! ha!

Oh Gracious… how fun does that look?!

Two weekends ago, Chris and I hosted a diaper shower for three of our favorite Dads-To-Be. Chris, Marc, and Mike have been best friends since grade school and were inseparable in high school. Their birthdays are all 10 days apart and now their babies will all be 1 month apart. We just  knew that we had to get everyone together to celebrate! We also had a gender revealment for the Caldwells!

Last week, we drove out to Rosemark to have dinner at my grandparent’s house! My cousin, Benjamin, just graduated from Ole Miss Law School and is moving to Kansas with his girlfriend while he studies for the bar exam. I am going to miss having him so close!
