A Whirlwind of Activity and Lazy Days Too . . .

It's so hard to believe that it's been a month since I posted last. I'm turning into one of those bloggers that I don't like very much. I have certain blogs that I love to read and, when they don't post or God forbid go more than a week without a new post, I lose interest or become obsessed with when they're finally going to be back. Obsessed might be a bit too strong of a word but you know what I mean. :)

Here are a few pics of what we've been up to since the last couple of weeks of school.

Brendan was a praying mantis in an adorable play that was written and performed by his class. His friend, Tristan, played an army ant. All of the costumes were made by parents of the students. Lots of creative people!!

The end of flag football season. It was Brendan's first year playing and he did a great job. He's like his mother and doesn't do well in the heat but he hung in there like a trooper!!

I could never understand why sports jerseys come in black for summer sports. I'm sure if women were in charge of this they would come in lighter, less sun-absorbent colors. Don't you agree?

We had a graduation from middle school to high school. It was a tough year for Trevor so we're very happy it's over. :)

Trevor and his very proud Pap.

Now two out of three grandsons are taller than their Pap!!

Trevor and his very proud parents!!

We look a little worse for wear due to being in an auditorium without air conditioning (except for the bathrooms!!) and it was 90 degrees and humid the day of graduation. My poor husband came straight from work and wasn't able to change so he was drenched by the time the ceremony was over. UGGHH!!

Our oldest son graduated from Fire Training School and is now officially a firefighter. He didn't attend his graduation from the class so I don't have any pics to show but he did get his name in the local newspaper so we have that as a memento. He is also now a senior in high school. I can't believe how quickly the time has gone. I remember his first day of pre-school and now he's going to be graduating next year. The day of our baby shower for Megan was the day that Connor left to fly to North Carolina to look at colleges. Talk about opposite ends of the spectrum!!

Which brings me to a couple more pictures . . .

Miss Meggie is now almost 8 weeks old!!! She is smiling and starting to coo and is such a sweet baby. She makes the sweetest sounds when she's sleeping on her Mommy and Daddy's shoulder. I feel like I'm constantly holding her but I can't help myself!!

This is one of my favorite pictures of her.

I have to admit that I'm really enjoying dressing a little girl!!

Many blessings ~ Wendy

Wow, you and your family have definitely been busy and I totally understand. We just finished up a month of multiple family birthdays - plus, our oldest daughter just graduated from high school! We are so excited for her but a little sad, too. She will be leaving to attend Auburn University in a few weeks. It is so hard to believe. Time sure does fly, doesn't it?

Your beautiful new baby girl is just so precious! I just love her name. I just turned 41 and wish so badly that we were still able to have another baby. (My husband had a vasectomy about 15 years ago.) Although I have been ill for quite a while, and would probably have a tough time with another pregnancy, I still would give almost anything for the chance to have another baby. It has been SO long since we've heard the pitter-patter of little feet running around our home. Our three daughters are 24, 18 and almost 16. Our oldest daughter is married and has two young sons but, unfortunately, we very rarely get to see them. :0( So, I guess we will just have to pray for a miracle and, in the meantime, wait for more grandchildren. :0)

Thanks for sharing your beautiful family with us.
