straight lines, graph squares, circles
i'd rather just paint.

he did all the stairs
 loves to help

can i help momma? can i help? 
he's so big.

straight to the Y after drop off on the first day of school

adding color 
working slowly on the painting

adding color is fun

love these dog screen savers adam put on my computer

speaking of doggies
coacher had a playdate with riley 
our neighbors are trying to sell their house 
she comes over to play while the realtor's are there
she's a sweet girl
coach is nice and shares his water bowl, and a spot on the cold tile

on the 3rd day of school
 the boys got ready early, so they rode bikes
i ran behind

enjoying the early morning sunrise

then i spent an hour on the spin bike
rode over 20 miles
burned 400 calories

happy long weekend!!

sunflowers in june

back in june after all the bluebonnets and wildflowers went away
we suddenly got sunflowers

all along the new road behind our house
aren't these pretty sunflowers?
we got to see them everyday

me and the boys finally stopped to take pictures

sunflowers just scream sunshine, don't they?

and we were blessed with lots of rain AND sunshine this spring and early summer

Back to School {First Grade}

my first born's first day of first grade. whaaa! where does the time go?
 man i love him something fierce. 
such a sweet kid. funny. handsome. complicated. smart. 
curious.  creative. compassionate. giving. protective.
he is his own little guy. and i love that for him.
god has cooper in his grip. my angels have told me so :)

oh silly corbin pierce. of course he needed a turn holding the sign TOO! 
such a cute little guy... seriously.  he certainly has my heart. he's smart. 
sensitive. natural leader. silly. active. bossy. thinker. talker. 
corbin is a blessing! i can't wait to see how he soars on through the 1st grade!

 we sure are blessed to be parents to this big duo.
and yes, they are growing like weeds!

i hadn't scrapbooked in MONTHS.

 i love being invited to a crop. it's always more fun to scrapbook with a group.
this time i went with a lady adam works with and some of her friends.
we are lucky to have a few scrapbook stores very close to us.
i love to support them when i can!

it was awesome to be surrounded by loads of paper and gadgets and stickers and charms
i was there for 7 hours. i didn't take my camera so no pictures of the store.
but i got a few layouts complete. a few more stories told.
i love playing with paper and pictures and glue. :)

i'm signed up to go back to the next crop the end of september. 

i have plenty of pictures to use, that's for sure!
and blessed to have busy boys around to take pictures of, and tell stories about.

with school starting, and being on the PTA board this year, and the holidays right around the corner -- i'll be taking lots more pictures!

i love photography
and scrapbooking.

we've done LOTS of swimming this summer 
the YMCA is always a fun place to swim
never a huge crowd
always enough empty chairs for breaks
and they make us take breaks
one 10 minute break every hour
everyone out of the pool

the boys are becoming pretty good swimmers

they sure have fun in there
chasing each other, wrestling, diving, swimming
i didn't feel like swimming today, so another day thankful they have each other

coop says it's cold
corbin is tired

i'm sure by next year the boy's will be going down the slides,
 and swimming in the deep end
