1st Day of School

1st Day of First Grade! Asa was sooo excited :) He's been ready all week but they didn't start until today to ease into it! We had an open house yesterday and he got to see most of his friends. His best friend Ryan ran up to him, put him in a big bear hug and lifted him off the ground :) :) Asa's entire class loves him the same and it makes this momma feel good that he has such great friends. It also makes me feel good that they are a small class of 16 kids and they are all very close :)

Gracyn and Asa's Excellent Vacation

Two boys and their cousins are back in Maine with Grammy and Grampy and getting extremely spoiled with beach days and amusement parks.

Summertime

As summer swiftly escapes my death grip I have on it I despise being stuck behind a desk inside in AC and yearn to be out in the summer sun and breeze enjoying all things summer! Before I know it the leaves will be turning and a fall wind will be blowing that cold northern air and the slow slide into winter will begin, misery...

But this summertime video lifted my spirits, it's super cute! What We've Learned at Amusement Parks

Beachin'

And it's sunshine, blue eyes, tan lines, slow tide rollin'
just a summertime strolling
Chillin', breezing, sippin', singin' whoa

Our Long Weekend

Nothing like enjoying a little "Maine Time" smack dab in the of summer. The boys are still soaking it up while Mommy and Daddy had to come home to go back to work. We had a fun 4th on the 5th... Hurricane Arthur made the weather a little unfavorable on the 4th so much like everyone else in New England we celebrated on the 5th!


Snacks on the beach

Hope all will be well

Hope all will be well in our beloved Emerald Isle. Hurricane Arthur is expected to be a Category 2 Hurricane as it passes just (barely) off the coast of the North Carolina Outer Banks. I pray the house that hugged us for 7 glorious days holds strong and doesn't sustain any booboos.

Goings on...

From the short list:

Enjoying summer. We are officially in our 2nd week of summer vacation. Asa started day camp yesterday and is really enjoying it. He has one favorite counselor that he had last year too and I had to tear him away from her yesterday when I picked him up :) Gracyn has wanted to stay the past two days as well, but he can't go until next year - you have to be 3 and potty trained!

We've already made a couple trips to Maine and will spend the 4th weekend there. It will be a full house! Asa also spent last week with Grammy there and both boys get to spend next week!


Loving Grampy's Boat

Oh I wish dandelions would go away! "But there soft mom"...
Asa, Ashleigh and Derrick Wells Beach Maine with Grammy.
I also had my 20 year High School Reunion this past weekend - shout out to the Class of 1994! It was nice to reconnect with those I haven't seen in a long time and even those I see every once in a blue moon!

Hot and Humid and I'm loving it... Pool is set up and evening dips are on the agenda.
