Birthday Party

The boys' cousin Kaden celebrated his 3rd birthday at a local park.

Everyone had a blast. Luke on the teeter totter with his Uncle Matt launching him into the air. I think Luke was laughing so hard he could barely breathe. Carter just having fun with everything and Brayden just loves being outside with people.

Luke's Last First Day of Preschool

Luke is entering his 3rd year of preschool. He was excited this morning to see all of his preschool friends again (and cousin Austin, in picture).

Apparently snack, singing and the playground were the highlights from his day.

To celebrate his first day of school, we headed to McDonald's for a pumpkin milkshake. Yum!

Friday Night Lights

Carter started his first football season. His first game was Friday night under the lights at Fireman's Field. He was so filled with excitement about playing football where there were bleachers, lights and people cheering, that he was not nervous about playing. He is one of the younger kids on the field but would not know it by his height.

Then their second game was Monday night.

Both games Carter's team a lot. Luke loves to go to the games because of the concession stand and hanging out with the "big boys".

1st soccer game of the season

Carter and Luke are playing on the same soccer team in Waterford. Jeremy is coaching. Luke is Pre-K, thinking that he is just like the 1st graders that he is playing with. Carter and Luke were thrilled to have their first soccer game of the season.

They won (even though they do not technically keep score yet).

Carter 1st day of 1st Grade

Carter headed to 1st grade today, acting like everything was cool. He has been excited to go to school all day and be with his friends in the class.

He headed to school looking good. Meet up with all the boys at the bus stop (Luke wanting to be one of the big boys heading off to school).

Came home, both shoes untied, collar up on one side and a hole in the new jeans. He said he had a great day and could not wait to show me all the things in his backpack.

Camp Out at the Neighbors

We live in the best neighborhood!
The dads and children were invited for a camp out, moms came for awhile too. The house hosting the camp out has a pond with a big field perfect for time outdoors. Several families, lots of children, some fishing, lots of smores, lots of laughter and fun. It was a blast. Jeremy, Carter and Luke stayed for the camp out. Brayden and I stayed until it was Brayden's bedtime. Speaking of bedtime...guess what time Carter and Luke went to bed that night? Luke - 12:30 a.m. Carter - 2:30 a.m. The latest they have ever stayed up but they had so much fun (not so much fun the following day but they caught up on their sleep quickly). Thanks to the Olivers for hosting such a crew!

We made it to Clemjontri Park in Mclean and the boys had a blast.
