Summer Busy

Being busy in the summer is different than being busy during the school year. It still involves being on the go a lot, but the destinations are usually more fun.

Here are some of the things we've been busy with the past few weeks:

1.Baby gift I made for Troy's cousin. I got the pattern and idea from here. Mine didn't turn out quite as frayed looking as I'd have liked, maybe after a few washings.
2.We've had tons and tons of rain. The flowers are loving it!
3.Troy's sister was in town and we went to the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo with them. It was so much fun!
4.Genna is playing t-ball this year for the first time and Troy is helping coach.
5.Genna lost her first tooth.
6.Connor had to get stitches after his foot slid under the treadmill. It must have gotten cut on a bolt under there. So he has missed out on swim team for the past 2 weeks.
7.Amber helped me find this cute shelf when we hung out last week. It makes my entry way much more cheery!
8.My garden has also liked all this rain, we've been picking and eating fresh peas all week long. Unfortunately, the weeds have thrived with the rain as well.
9. Along with the rain came lots of thunder and lightning, plus tornado watches and warnings. Thankfully we got our basement cleaned out and so the other night when we had to go down in the storage room, there was a place for everyone to lay down. The kids slept there all night because the warnings lasted past 11pm.
10.Jameson finished up his Faith in God requirements and is getting ready to go to scout camp next week. We are so proud of what an awesome young man he is turning out to be.
11. Genna lost her other front bottom tooth and so we had to document that as well.
12.We didn't really venture out in any of the storms to get any pictures of the storm clouds, although we saw some pretty incredible ones while we were waiting for ball games to get called off because of bad weather.
13.It was so nice to be able to spend time with Shantelle and her family. Troy's sister lives in Utah and so we get to see them about once a year. Their kids change so much in between times. Caleb just turned 3 years old and he is such a smart and funny kid!
14.We have been playing A LOT of ball lately. Connor has normal games Mondays and Saturdays. Jameson plays Tuesdays and Thursdays. The past 2 weeks Connor has had to suit up for Jameson's games as well because of missing players or injuries.
15.Jameson has been working on taking pictures for the fair.
16.Anna is 10 months old and a sweetie. We watched her and Caleb for the afternoon and evening. Boy did I forgot how much work it is to have a baby in the house.
