So I guess this family update thing will have to be a monthly occurrence on this blog. We started off our Summer with lots of activities. Both for the kids and I. We have been busy in the month of June and we are counting down the days when we go on our vacation. Looking forward to unwinding and being with the family.
Anyways, here's how our June looked like so far...
And of course Maddie gets her collage picture as well. The image on the right shows her on the first day and the one of the left is of her on the last day of school this year. The one thing I noticed about these two images placed side by side is how fast she is growing up. I mean, piggy tales on the left and then a flower with hair down on the right! She definitely got the "preteen" bug this year and I'm not excited about it. Why are my babies growing up so fast?
As you can see from the photo above, our deck needed some major TLC. It was really looking bad. We suspect that the prior owners just did a coat of varnish when they were getting ready to sell it and that's why the color didn't last long (we've only been here for 3 1/2 years). This time we bought the type of paint that supposed to restore and protect the wood and that it should last for a long time. Crossing our fingers we don't have to do this again too soon.
Marcus got to participate in another year of Cub Scout day camp this year. This is his last year and although, in the beginning, he was not too thrilled to be doing some of the Webelos events again (he got an early start with Webelos last year) he had an awesome time. When I asked him what was his favorite, he said it was the rock climbing. I was not there when he did this event but from what I heard from the other moms, he was fearless and was able to make it to the top. I was asked to photograph the events of the last day of camp (Webelos day) and the above was a shot I took of a boy focusing on his archery. I am always impressed at the amount of volunteer work that members of our church put in order for these boys to get their pins and requirements done. I am blessed to have such devoted leaders working with me and my husband so that my children can have such awesome experiences like this.
And finally, a "baby bump" photo. This is me on Father's day so it would have been a couple days before my 29th week of pregnancy. I am now officially 30 weeks so that means 10 (or less) week to go. We are very excited for our little one and already have a name picked out. We even talk about our baby boy using this name so we can test it out and see if we like it. I especially adore it when the kids mention him by his name.I think it's so adorable that they already have this connection with him even before he's born. Oh and no I am not going to share his name in public (only with immediate family) as I'm worried I'll jinx it. I had a name picked out early on and then shared it with a couple of friends only to find out that my husband refuse to use that name for our boy. Don't want that to happen again!
So there you have it. Thanks for stopping by and keeping in touch with us.
Till next time,
