Summer in iPhone Pictures

Since I blogged about the last day of one school year on the post as I did the first day of the next year it's only fitting I blog about summer now.

If you follow me on Instagram all these pictures are a repeat.

We spent a lot of our summer at the pool.  

One night they wanted to go on a walk with me and it turned into Cameron walking like a dog.  There is a section of sidewalk where a dog had walked on before it dried so it was the paw prints.. it's only natural he follows the path.

Also lots of this went on.  

We had baseball for about a week past school.  

I love this picture. Cooper is caked in mud and dirt.  I was so proud of him, be became quite the hitter. 

We met Christy and the kids at Perrin Park one morning.  We were on the playground and the YMCA daycare bus showed up, it was like a scene from a horror movie when all the kids came running out.

The boys and I randomly went to Bass Pro one morning and they had a fishing exhibition.  Fun surprise!

The same morning we went to Lowe's for their Kids Clinic.  We were a sight.  I should have gotten one set to do because although they came with instructions we were on our own. 

Mr. Sam from church graduated high school this year and is heading to USI.  Cameron is sure going to miss him, he had to stop by his party and wish him luck.

Steve didn't take much time off work this summer but he did have a few days off for comp days from working the weekend.  We took one day to go to Holiday World.  These are out of order but this is our after shot from The Voyage.

This was our before.. ha!

One Friday night we went to a Bats game as part of the Paxton Group appreciation night.

4-H Fair fun!

On another comp day we went to Squire Boon Caverns,

My dad gave us his tickets to Holiday World for his company picnic.  A free ticket and meal, so back we went.

A couple weeks before school started we went to VBS at Charlestown Independent Church.  It was superhero theme.

This is what a half week of VBS does to someone.

They earned prizes on the last day, silly boy.

They waited all week for Superman day.

This is what a full week does to someone.

When I registered the kids for school we were living at my moms so I knew they probably had her address for the home visits.  My friend Dawn ended up having Cameron on her list and she caught it and made the extra trip to our house.  He is loving kindergarten!

First day of Kindergarten and 3rd Grade!!!

I plugged my camera into my computer today so I could blog about the first day of school and found pictures from the last day of school.  The pictures are only two months late, it could be worse.

Cameron and his sweet friend Layla on graduation night.  Layla's mom was pregnant and scheduled to be induced the very next day when her water broke the night before.  There were lots of us there to make sure she had plenty of pictures.

Two days later was the official last day and we had picnic.  

A few weeks later the big guy had his last day of school.

Insert lots of summer fun here and it was meet the teacher night.  Cameron got Ms. Harbin just like Cooper did in kindergarten.

I didn't get a picture of Cooper with his teacher.  We were assigned one teacher and she got moved back to 1st grade and our teacher was hired 6 days before school started.  I've heard wonderful things about her and I'm confident it's going to be a great year.

The boys had choc chip muffins and bacon, as usual :)  Steve and I had Wild Eggs after drop off.

I still can't believe it.  He came into our room every morning leading up to Thursday with a big smile counting down the days.

Cooper doesn't like to smile for pictures these days, he was however excited.

This one makes my heart smile.

He found some friends and the nerves disappeared.

So far this had been the easiest transition back to school since Cooper was in Kindergarten.  He seems so relaxed, granted it's only been two days, strangely enough I think having Cameron helps Cooper more than Cooper helping Cameron.

Here's to a great year!
