Our Summer Summary

After the BIG WEDDING in May (previous post) and the end of the school year activites, I needed a BREAK. I have enjoyed my summer and can not believe it is almost over.
We have just been hanging around.
And helping each other have a good time.
Alex graduated from Preschool and will start Big Kid School next Tuesday..sniff, sniff.....

This is Alex getting her diplome from Ms. Pauline, who will have all four of my kids in Pre-K 4 after Avery gets her this year! Pretty neat and she is very special!

Ms. Vicki and Avery at graduation. She will be a big Pre-K 4 kid this year! sniff...

My Sweet Family at Graduation.


I love pictures of these two!

For the end of the year festivities, we went to Stone Mountain and rode a Duck Boat with Ganky!


...and we had a Luau!
...with Ganky...

...and Aunt Cindy!


This is my all time favorite picture of my Mom! Isn't she so pretty?? I love her!!

My kids are getting bigger and learning to handle their own problems....even taking on a hornet in their bathroom!

I got to spend some time with these two (Cindy and Ganky). What fun we always have together!

Avery and Alex went to Cheer Camp and cheered for a solid month after that!! Alex learned the "carpetwheel"!

Daddy and his sweethearts at the Varsity...minus one sweetie! ;)
Happy Fourth (belated) from Alex!! :)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Off to Myrtle Beach we went! Autumn took her friend, Toni. They have been friends since they were two! They both even had Ms. Pauline together. They are so pretty and good girls.

AND after a very long wait....the Marine came home!!! We got to see him at the beach! Welcome back Justin!!

He really missed these two and they prayed for him every night. Avery would say "God, please keep Justin safe from Americans". And one night she said "I love Justin more than a woman". Out of the mouths of Babes!
Me and the big girls. We figured out quickly that straightening your hair was a waste of time!

Alex rode some rides at the Boardwalk that really surprised me!
And Austin had to really work hard to not get pushed over next to Toni! Too funny!

Avery took a less dangerous Boat Ride!
Alex and Austin on the swings.
Avery on the carousel.


The girls were so excited to get the new Ice Cream Build A Bears!

Props at the Mini Golf Course were great for pics!






Pa and Austin always have fun together! We sure are thankful for Pa!
...and Ganky!


Hello Sunshine!






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We had a party at Ganky and Pa's house for Justin's safe return! Tons of fun!





All is as it should be!





I hope you are having a Great Summer! Thanks so much for stopping by.
...until next time.
