August so far...

My apologies for not keeping thing up on the blog here lately, we've been super busy trying to cram in HUGE amounts of fun before school starts back.

So in my effort to catch you up here is a mega collage and I will update left to right, top to bottom:
1. Matt found a treadmill on the side of the road, we've had much fun and "hope" to have much exercise on this super awesome freebie1
2-4. My friends Carla and Terre from college came to town for a visit, we had a ton of fun and even tried to get the 4 kids to nap at the same time, tried is the key word.
5-6. We put a bowl of free tomatoes out by our tomato day was a huge success.
7-10. Steffany and I took the kids to the children's museum. Those twins are getting so big and cute!
12. Ollie and Molly swinging in the backyard, we've hung with this sweet family from 3 houses down, once sometimes even twice a day this summer, so fun!
12.Ollie in the swing, just loving the freedom!
13-14. Major backyard playdate with some neighbors and friends this week, 10 kids in all, Kristen even created a baby pool fun course.
15-18. Kristen and I took our kids and met some friends at the Asheboro Zoo for a last blast day of summer, John started Kindergarten the next day, whew! For a close up of #17 see below for the super cuties (had to enlarge that one.)
19-20. Our neighbors across the street have an "end of summer redneck party" this was last night and here are two pics of some of the festivities. It's actually quite fun, people dress up, bring pork rinds and play games and such.

Ok, think you're about caught up. Yesterday was my first work day back at school. The kids went back to daycare, side note, we switched them to a different school this year, more on that later!

I've got work days, open on house on Tuesday night and then back to school 2011-2012 on Thursday. All in all, I am pretty sure I can say that this has been one of my favorite summer's ever!!!! We had so much fun together as a family and with friends!!!

I am really excited about the school year as I have a ton of super sweet kids (and parents) in my class! Go Pirates!
