what we've been doing.

so much happened as our summer came to a close. we went crazy having just too much fun! here are a few pictures to tell our story that closed out our summer.

first... ashlynn started first grade. i could hardly believe it. i cried when she left to line up for her first day. she loves her teacher & has been making some great friends. next... we took some leadership students to magic mountain. can you believe it? they still have the swings. then... we did a lot of swimming. last pic... we celebrated jeremy's 5 th birthday. it was a huge change for me. my little guy turned 5. i seriously can remember the day he was born. 4 weeks early... 8 lbs 5 oz. he is still my little cuddler. he loves that he is 5!

in this row... first we have 'fall forward'. 101 students went up to camp hammer in santa cruz to enjoy a weekend of craziness. a.ma.zing time. second... ashlynn turned 7. yes... i am hit with my kiddos growing up all at once. she turned 7 & it has been one of the hardest days since my pops died (for a lot of reasons). it is funny how i am able to recall everything about the day she was born. i can tell you what i did, what i ate, what time i went to the hospital. after an emergency c-section, i got to hold a 1olb 4 oz baby who was a content as can be. she has this passion for others knowing jesus that amazes me. just the other day she asked one of her teachers (who she knows goes to our church) if he was coming this weeked... oh wait i forgot she yelled it from across the playground. she's a sweetie. next... jt started preschool. watch out world. he is there in full craziness. & last we went camping and did a little body boarding (it was ashlynn's birthday present).

well that about does it! we have had a great summer.

Oooh! Good times. Happy Birthday to your kiddos. They were big babies! It would be nice if we could just press pause every now and then - they do grow up just so quickly.

Take Care!
