Summer fishing and picnic

One of the first nights of summer, we made a family night of fun and took the boys fishing at Foster Lake in Sweet Home.  We brought our grill and had a yummy dinner then fished.  The boys were ecstatic to be outside but their attention span for fishing wasn't the greatest.....Ben was definitely the longest.  It was such a beautiful evening though, and even if we didn't catch any fish we had a wonderful time together.  I love my boys and love the long summer nights of fun together with them.

Ben graduates from Kindergarten

Even though I'm so late in posting all of these pictures, I can still remember Ben's last day of Kindergarten.  It was such a good year for him.  He didn't know how to read before the year started and by the end of it was reading like a 3rd grader.  He is so quick to catch on to new concepts and really thrived with his teacher.  Socially, he finally hit his stride and stopped hanging out by the teacher assistant's side during recess.  He is a rule follower, eager to participate and just so smart.  I was so proud of him for all he accomplished.
As a family, we all adjusted to life with a schedule and homework, and we all hit our stride as well.  Though we loved the slower pace of the weekend, we all do well with a little routine.  I must say that by the end of the year, I was more than ready to stop packing lunches for a few months and just have my sweet boy home with me all day.  Bring on summer!!

Awana awards night

The boys completed their first year of Awanas.  Peter and I both went through the program and are really excited our boys will get to do the same.  It was really fun to watch them become more comfortable socially with their groups and learn Scripture along the way.  They were so proud to receive their book awards and we were proud of them.  Also proud of the way Ethan was fake burping from his chair during the ceremony :-)
