August...

My life seems crazy right now.  BUT a good kind of CRAZY :)

Here is but a small sampling of our August....which doesn't include CeCe's birthday and/or Camo's Baptism.

 

CAMO'S SOCCER TEAM

STRIKER CUP CHAMPIONS!!

 

 

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL

 

 

CAMPING - GOLFING - FISHING - KAYAKING

Me and my Honey B bought ourselves new Kayaks....  SOooooo much fun.  

The fishing I can do without....everybody knows I can't catch a fish to save my life.  

Instead I took my insanely expensive camera out on the lake.  Who does that ???  

 

OUR GARDEN

I love my new garden/planter boxes that Mr. B built for me earlier this spring.  I've never had such a well producing garden at this house....ever.

Plus my parents and I had the back breaking job a filling the residual garden with rock.  

Holy cow....between laying down black plastic....and hauling the rock from the front of the house to the garden..... It was quite a job.  

THANKS THANKS THANKS MOM AND DAD!!

THANKS THANKS THANKS MR. B!!

Back to school....2011

 Ok.... I love my boys.  I love being able to stay home with them.  That is an amazingly huge blessing....  BUT can I just say....that....I'm soooo glad school has finally started. 

The constant fighting, constant messy house, constant hearing of the word "mom, mom, mommy, ma ma, mom, mom, mooooooommmm......  I'm kinda over it.

This summer has been ACTION packed.  It also has been the hardest that I can remember, in terms of the boys getting along with each other.  They all need (including me) a schedule....

So this year I have a.....

-Sophomore in High school....whoa!!

-7th grader

-5th grader

-2nd grader

I also have to give a shout out to my BUGMAN.  His SWAT soccer team took 1st place in last weeks Strikers Tournament.  Along with that, I couldn't be prouder that he tested out to be in Weber County's 5th grade PAL (gifted and talented) program this year.  Out of the whole district he is one of 16 5th graders to be in the PAL class.  Which is conveniently held at our own elementary school.....score!!!  We met BOTH of his teachers last night, and Bug is so excited to be in such a awesome learning environment.  

Ohhh look how cute my little Cam-man is....  He's growing up so stinkin fast ;)

CeCe was a little nervous for his first day of junior high.  LOL.....  I wasn't though.  That kid will be just fine.  I helped chaperone the back to school stomp last week, and all I can say, he has NOTHING to worry about.

CeCe is different than Kelto was at this same age....  Remember CeCe is alot like me.  He digs his friends, he likes to get involved in school activities, he's Mr. Personality etc....

Kelto was a little slower..... In fact CeCe and Kelto are about the same now.  Except there is a 3 year difference.  Kelto has finally started to noticed the opposite sex, he's all into his friends, going to school activites etc.

I just want it to be made known to my boys (again)....that GIRLS are nothing but trouble.  Stay away from them as long as possible.  Get through high school, go on a mission, go to college.....then and only then should you start to pay them attention.

Yah right....I know better.  But at least I gave it a try :)

 

P.S. No pic of Kelto....he rode his roadbike early to school this morning.  He probably wouldn't have let me take a pic of him anyway.
