Oh Tracy- that last one is GORGEOUS! Love the new ones of the kids! They are seriously growing up. I see it the most in Micah! Such precious memories and YES! I too am totally enjoying summer-time!

Randy "helping" us tear down the bar in our kitchen to make the dining room and kitchen one large open area! So excited and READY, but it'll be a long process!

Wow, good for Ruthie doing that devotional!!! :-O Nora would NEVER! That's totally awesome.

And I absolutely LOVE the shot of Randy with the hammer, especially converted like that. Such an old-timey feel, like a little boy in the 'old days' learning to help his dad or something. Really precious and a great moment captured. Great shots, Sadie!

I, too, love the one of Randy with the hammer!

That caterpillar shot is awesome, Tracy! And the barn is awesome too!

Here are some from me from the past couple of weeks Smile

Dirty boys!

Swimming lessons have been going GREAT! I never would have thought he'd be going all the way under water like this since he was so scared to! Now he's jumping in, going under, and swimming a little ways. I'm one proud mama!

They had a water gun war with the neighbor boy the other night. It was hilarious! Hope I didn't get him in trouble though...they have a new baby at home, and he got pretty wet. Even got the hose out there at one point and was squirting it at the boys Wink

I say it every week, but I'm sorry there's so many! This has seriously been the best summer I've had since I was a kid!

What serious summer fun you guys are having, Steph! Really awesome. I love that third one, such a great expression from both boys. And good on Carson for the swimming lessons: our kids are NOT good in water, to the point that in his last set of swimming lessons, Micah had to have a special 'helper' (lifeguard) just for him. :-O

I was sure that was how it was going to be with Carson, Tracy. He was so resistant to going in the beginning. Then, he got the most fabulous instructor, and everything just clicked!!! I seriously can't believe everything that he is doing now. He is even bugging me to buy him diving toys! This is from the kid who wouldn't even put his face in the water just a couple of weks ago. Proud isn't a strong enough word to describe how I feel about him. Is he the best swimmer? No. Are kids his age much further along than he is? Yes. But I love that he has some more confidence now. He is upset that his lessons are over now. Never thought that would happen.

Now, Jackson? Well, he is still Jackson Wink Stubborn as can be and won't do anything he doesn't want to do. I have got him to put his face in a couple of times, and he's slipped a couple of times and didn't freak out when he went under, but he didn't get as much out if his lessons as Carson did.
