We're ALIVE!

So the month of July has come and gone. Not sure what happened, but I just didn't feel like blogging last month. Nevertheless our month was filled with camps, VBSs', birthday parties, showers, you get the idea! I even failed to take my camera with me to all events. July was fun! The kids are just growing up too fast(I say that all the time but it's true) and we just enjoyed being together during our last full month of summer.

Now we are getting geared up for the new school year. I have all of Jake's school supplies ready and we are now working on his school uniforms. He has to wear them to the pre-K center in Ruston(our parish built this new school last year and this is the second school year that it has been open) and although this makes me sad that he's a big boy now, I know he is SO excited about this new step. He's already told Landry Grace that he's riding the school bus to his new school(since when did this become cool?) but I had to break it to him that there was no bus to take him this year. He'll have to wait until kindergarten for that:)! He's also excited about eating in the cafeteria and the playground. Fun times ahead.

Here are a few activities from last month:

Art camp with Mrs. Renee. The theme was Eric Carle books and Jake chose a jaguar as his favorite character.
Landry Grace found my lipstick one night. 'Nough said.
We went over to Party Central in Bossier one evening. We'd never been there but the kids had a TON of fun!
The huge slide was a hit. I think they went down it 50+ times. No kidding.
And Jake Tyler loves him some go carts.
Before Tullie's birthday party.
Hitting the pinata. They loved this birthday party!
While everyone was getting their loot on the ground, Jake was making sure nothing more was going to fall out. I love how Claire is smiling at him. So sweet!
And Matt's cousin, Laura, is expecting her first baby in early September. We celebrated with her during a shower. She looks fantastic!
With another of Matt's cousins: Jenny. She is getting married Labor Day weekend at the beach.
That's all for now. I'll be back sooner than later this time.
