Summer Fun!

Crazy busy summer between camps, Maine, work and 2 weddings! Oh, and falling down slicing your thumb on your ceramic travel mug and having surgery to repair the nerve you managed to mangle in the process, but these guys know how to rip it up!

A Proud Defining Moment!

We had Asa's IEP meeting yesterday for going into 2nd Grade! He knew we were going to be coming to school for a meeting, so yesterday he told his teacher he wanted to make a video of himself reading to share with us! It took everything in me not to break down into happy proud tears. A truly defining moment! The video was a little longer and had to be shortened because of file size, but the best part was in the last frame, he corrected himself from saying play and to reading kick!

I know I neglect you tired old blog. My last post was in the grip of winter. Spring is slowly (very, very slowly) blooming and we did go in search of warmer weather. We returned to the sun warmed beaches of Emerald Isle NC for April vacation. I think it's totally worth the 14 hour drive... The memories are worth it (uh-em Jenna).
This hole was already here, it delivered days of enjoyment!

Snow Day

We had SNOWFUN yesterday! Cousins came over for a sledding party. Nothing like a cardboard boat covered in duck tape and pulled behind the Ranger!

 The adults had fun too being pulled and purposely dumped! :) :)

Today Asa had a snow day, it is the 3rd snow day in 3 weeks!
