Yesterday we got another addition to the family....Betsys new dog named Lady. She is a min-pin, and just a baby! The boys are fascinated with her, they wont hardly leave her alone to eat. They love to give her treats when she "goes pees and poops" outside. I think they'll be devastated when Aunt B and Lady move in September!

Well, it's now official. 2 out of 3 of my babies are in school! Clayton had his first day of pre-school yesterday. He goes to the afternoon class, so all morning he was asking when it was going to be time to go. Finally we headed out! We got to his classroom, and he gave Micah a big hug, then (reluctantly) me too, hung up his spanking new Thomas backpack and headed in to play. Not a moments hesitation! Micah and I headed home, and when I put him down for his nap, he looked over at Claytons bed and said "I want Cayton here", so very sweet. When we went to pick both dudes up, they got in the car and Micah said "I missed you so much!" It was very sweet. Clayton loves his teacher, and has made a new friend named Spencer. He informed me this morning that he is going to make 3 new friends today. Ethan is doing good too...he has already had homework! Oh dread....but when I ask him if there are any cute girls in his class to flirt with, he just blushes and tries not to smile....ahhh 4th grade.....

Saturday August 19th brought us a new member of the family. Falon and Ben got married! (And Aiden too). It was beautiful, kinda hot, but mostly beautiful. How strange it was for me to see my baby brother get married. Not really a baby anymore...We love Bird so much, and are so grateful to have her as part of our family. The day was eventful, all 7 grandsons had a ball playing outside, and Micah even took an impromptu swim in the pond! Ethan got a bloody nose during the ceremony, and Betsy and I butchered the wedding cake. But fun was had by all. :)

Well, Ethan headed off to 4th grade this morning. He was so excited to go back to school and see all of his friends. When we got to the bus stop this morning, he and his buddy Chapman were making fun of all the moms with their cameras...typical dudes! 4th grade for me is the first year I really remember significant things about my life...such as, telling Mrs. Powell that it was a free country and I didnt have to get in line like everyone else....my best friend having some potty disagreements with our teacher....and many other funny school stories. I just wonder what he is going to discover, and what he'll remember about his 4th grade year someday when his baby heads off to school....

Clayton had his first bike accident tonight...complete with blood! After he fell, he was pretty upset until we mentioned going inside and cleaning him up...then he was suddenly fine. :) He didn't want to quit riding. What a monkey....the other picture is Ethan doing his latest stunt, no hands! Pretty cool stuff...some boys down the street were doing jumps on their rollerblades off of ramps, so I'm glad we're sticking to the tame stuff....for now anyway :)

Hello everyone! Exciting news...Clayton has learned to ride his bike without training wheels! Big week for him. He'll be starting pre-school later this week, so he's hitting a few milestones right in a row. He's been getting pretty good at going one way down the sidewalk, then stopping with Josh helping him get going again, but today he mastered turning around, and starting and stopping all by himself! He was so proud...so sweet to watch. Of course, Micah is just mad that he's getting left behind, but Ethan is pumped that he has someone to race with! Fun times.... :)

Hello everyone! As you can probally tell, I am new to this blogging stuff, but I have been prompted to set up a page for our family. I figured I'd give it a go, and see what we come up with! :) So, I will attempt to post updates about our life, and pictures at least once a week. Hope you all enjoy getting to see our family!
