independence day

We had a fun 4th of July! We just hung out at home until it was party time.  Our friends the Cox's had people over for a bbq & swimming. The weather was a little cooler, especially when we watched the fireworks, it was so nice!  After fireworks we stopped by Rita's for some Italian ice.  We ate outside & enjoyed the night. These are the only pictures I took that day.  I really need to get better at taking pictures.

Swimming & looking cute with her pigtails!
 Red, white, & blue!  My 3 loves! (Best pic I could get)

Festive & yummy strawberries that we made. 



I can't believe this little boy is done with Kindergarten & going to be in 1st grade!!  He did not ever go to pre-school so it was a big deal.  He did great & it's crazy how fast it went.  He only went to school for 2 1/2 hours so it will be interesting to see how he does with being there all day.  Carter we are so proud of you & love you so much!

This picture kind of makes me sad....little boy on the first day all excited & a big boy over Kindergarten & ready for 1st grade!  Glad I remembered to take a picture on the first & last day.   
Singing a song with sign language. I may have cried a little bit...
A happy boy with his "diploma"
 Carter & Ms Barkley, we miss her, best teacher!

 Scarlet had to check everything out & I guess all the kids thought it was funny.

Shane & Carter, best buds.

Proud Mom & Dad!!
