Squeezing out the last little juice of summer

We went to the Grasshopper's game last week with some friends, look at all those babies. Matt, Ollie and I are in the back behind the yellow thing. We got to sit in the Kavanagh box, courtesy of the Sasser family. It was fun.

Ollie stayed up way past his bedtime, and then fell asleep on Matt's lap when he just couldn't take it any more. Summer '07, it's been tons of fun, one we won't forget for a long time.

Oh yeah, Ollie is sitting up pretty good these days. He loves spending time with Aunt Jenny, I think he misses his mommy, but they're having fun. I start school tomorrow. It should be a fun year, 9 girls, 7 boys, nine of my students are Hispanic...uhh, maybe I will hablo something or other by the end of the year.

lazy days of summer

Ollie and I are enjoying our last few days of summertime together. I feel rested and rejuvenated after have almost 6 months off from work. Matt, Ollie and I had some fun adventures and bonded as a family this summer, good times. Monday I go back to teaching 2nd grade and Ollie will get to hang out with "Aunt" Jenny, his new nanny, which we are excited about the ways she is going to bless our little one.

We had a photo shoot in the front yard the other day and here are a few of my favorites. It's amazing what you can do with a digital camera, a down comforter, and an Ollie.

Our trip on the _____????

So the boys and I went on our first adventure on the new and slightly bigger sailboat this past weekend. It was really fun, really hot, but fun. Ollie liked the way the boat rocked him to sleep at night, he is a born sailor I think. We still don't know what to name the boat, perhaps you will be inspired and send your idea our way. Here are some pictures from the weekend.
Here she is, the new, well new to us, Erickson 27'. We have the boat in a slip in Havelock, NC, home of Cherry Point military base. The town is kinda lackluster, but we found some good Mexican food and that is all that matters, :).
Here is our little deckhand in his dreamy little bed we made for him, he enjoyed our little window air unit at night. Next summer we'll have to put that netting stuff all around the sides, fun times.
We found the only shady spot, behind the main sail, whew, it was hot!
This is Captain Hannam sailing the new boat. We did have to jump into the river at one point, to cool off, fortunately this boat has a really fancy ladder on the back no more struggles to pull your self in. It was a good weekend to be away with my sweetie, if you're looking for a water adventure, just give us a call, we can get there in about 4 hours.

Trip to Charleston

We took some friends to Charleston this past weekend and then Ollie and I stayed to hang out with Grandma and Grandaddy for a few days. It was a fun trip, but we are all glad to be home.Here are our friends John, Loren and Bryan at the beach. Bryan is 11 days older than Ollie, he is a cutie.
Here we are, it was Ollie's first time at the beach.
Ollie really had a fun time. As my summer vacation/maternity leave finally winds down, I am so thankful for the fun times I've had with this little guy. Tomorrow we are heading to the new boat, so stay tuned to see some pictures of that.
