I cannot believe how quickly this summer has flown by! We have so much catching up to do! Again, I have lots of pictures to share, so I'll just start adding captions to let you know what's going on in the pics!! So...starting way back in May when Charlie was promoted from the 3-year-old class at preschool...
The last day of school was field day.
They had someone making balloon creations for the kids. Charlie chose a sword. Stephen and I found his "sword" a little bit disturbing...you may be able to see why.
"Unfortunately" the sword popped and Charlie was more broken up about it than we were!
At the end of field day, they had a picnic for all the kids and their families. It was all very nice and Charlie had a great day of playing with his friends.
At night, they had a promotion ceremony for the kids...Charlie made it to the 4-year-old class!! :)
(I think he put on his cap by himself.)
I just tried to put these pictures of Piper down farther on the post, but it wouldn't let me. So, a little break from Charlie to see a couple pics of Piper playing dress-up...
(Piper also wanted to wear Charlie's clothes today, so she was in the mood for role play I guess!)
Ok, and back to field day. They had a fun parachute for the kids to play with. (I used to love those days in gym class!!)
Ok, so to heck with correct order...this one is a picture from the family birthday party we had in Louisville for Charlie and Piper. They had lots of fun and got tons of cool stuff! (I promise I wasn't mad...just my default frown!)
This one is back in Cave City...I just thought it was funny to see the way Charlie was enjoying his lunch!
This is the Father's Day card Charlie made for his Daddy. I told him how to spell the words, but he did all the writing himself...didn't he do an awesome job!! (Just in case, it says "happy father's day"!)
("love Charlie") I was very proud of him!
Okay, back to the birthday party...a Costco cake!!! YUMMY!
Now just some pictures from playing in the backyard...these moments have been kind of rare here lately with the heat advisories and all. Soooo hot, yuck!
I hope everyone has been having a great summer. I love summer and the long days. I just can't believe how quickly it has gone by! Oh well, we've got lots more fun things to look forward to. In August, we've got a trip to see Gran and Pawpaw in Dyersburg, Stephen and I are taking another short trip to see the Cardinals (yippee!!), there's a back-to-school bash at church, some get-togethers with fun friends and lots of other stuff like that! Whew! Y'all keep cool!
