Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Portrait even with J..

So we went for a drive yesterday through the Cuyahoga Valley. Let's just say the COLOR was GORGEOUS. You would think this post would be related to the Valley, right..Oh No.. I'm interested in more than the trees and such. I love this little guy and his expressions I love to capture.. so here's J.. (you even get a treat to see a self-portrait of J and me down by the falls)..

The first day of school was last Tuesday. Our house is settling into a nice routine for the boys and their new schedules. We are a BUSY house in the morning. We are also a quiet household a little after 9PM, YEAH!!

D is now in the 7th grade and attending our local Junior High School! It's unbelievable how fast time has gone by and just how much he has grown in that short time.

B is now in 5th grade and still attending the local Intermediate School. He has his own 'style'. His clothes are not matching this year and he likes it that way.. In fact he says 'I love my clothes and I love that they don't match!'.. You'll see his entire outfit further down as I snapped a quick one out the window of the car as he was heading to the school building.

L is now in 2nd grade! He is a bundle of energy as well. We figured he'd do nothing but talk throughout his days at school and surprisingly he's a nice quiet pupil in the classroom, eager to learn and achieve all he can. I've been blessed with well behaved studious boys, or actually their teachers have been blessed with them.. This was L's first picture, he really wasn't looking forward to being away from home, but it only lasted that morning, now he's fine!

He's such a cutie.. Notice in the picture above his two bottom teeth are pretty loose and are sticking 'out' instead of up! If he spent time wiggling them, they'd fall out, they're barely hanging! His top two are loose, not wiggly yet. I'm hoping they all come out around the same time though. Such cute pictures that will make!

And last, here's B on his way into the school building. Showing off his own style! He's worn the hat everyday since school started..

Have a great day!!

June - Early July 2009

To those who have been patient for an update thanks!! To those who have been IMPATIENT and emailed me a couple times and mentioned a couple times that I need to update THANK YOU for the encouragement.. HeHe..

Things have been pretty busy and well, not exactly exciting for us lately. I'll share what we have done..

In honor of our Independence Day:

Last evening after my birthday dinner we went to the lake and enjoyed a beautiful sky and scenery.

Daddy and J on the floating dock at the lake..

J loves 'ribbits'.. (I mean Toads) He runs around the yard till he finds one and catches. It's so cute. He'll carry it around for quite sometime too before he tires of it.. Poor toads..

Here's B and L with Camille the Kitten.. (When B gave me my birthday card yesterday he also handed me a curled up little Camille and said HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!)..

A couple weeks ago Grandma and Grandpa took the family out to Berlin to let the boys play on their favorite play set. Isn't it HUGE? I love this State Park/Campground, can't wait to get out there and camp later this summer...

Ya'll have a great weekend.. I'll try to post again, soon..

4-Wheeler Fun..

These explain themselves..what FUN the boys had!!

To Aunt Sharon from D and B: When can we come back over?

Tire and Cone...

Okay.. I admit it.. My J is spoiled. It's been recently announced to me that he is very spoiled. I've been in denial.. But I think after watching this a few days ago, J is indeed spoiled. (Spoiled with LOVE, that is.)

Not too many kiddos get their 74 year old Grandma to go outside and push them on their favorite swing. As well as enjoying an ice cream cone from said Grandma, while being pushed on the swing.. She loves this kiddo..

Have a great evening...
