I'm Baaaaack!

  Thank you mom and Beth for gently nudging me to get back on the saddle and update this blog!

Looks like 7 months have flown by since I last posted and while posting every event that's taken place since then would be a bore I'll condense it down the best I can. Here goes...


Alec gave soccer a try last summer, it was so hot out but he seemed to like it.

Went to Grandma and Grandpa's 

Stopped off at the Winfield pool to cool down, both kiddos are swimming great.

Caught some big and little fish at Grandma's


We took Otto on a LOT of outings! Here we are at Lake Lenexa on a really hot day.

First day of FIRST GRADE! Ethan has Mrs. Braune and is doing great in school. He'll tell you his favorite subject is math and he's reading at a 2nd grade level. Couldn't be more proud!


Lots of puppy snuggles!


A day trip to Fort Scott 


Someone got a new (used) car.

Couldn't make it camping outside so we set up camp in the living room. The boys loved it.

Ethan won the GOLDEN PAW AWARD at school and earned a sucker the size of his head!

Otto celebrated his 1st birthday on Oct 2

Apple Pie Day in Ethan's class

A quick weekend trip to St. Louis took us to the City Museum 


Otto looking like an old lady with his latest haircut ?!!?




We had a lovely visit with Santa at the Bass Pro Shop

Werewolf and Wolverine were the choices this year, they both filled their bags but avoided any tummy aches. 





Starwars was the theme for Alec this year at Christmas, Ethan's favorite gift was a mini drone.

Otto played a game or two of army guys!

The one snow we got gave Ethan just enough to build 1/2 of an igloo.


Looks like they forgot leg day!

Ethan celebrating 100 days of school by getting to dress up as a 100 year old. Hope this video is viewable, it's quite comical. He plays a good old man.

Pretty proud of this boy, he's the first in 1st grade to receive TWO Conkin Kid of Character Awards in the same year.

Alec and I volunteered at Ethan's Valentine's Day party at school and during downtime the kids are allowed to pick up one (of nine!) iPads and practice math. Blows my mind how things have changed.

There we go, think I'm all caught up! Next post will probably include Ethan loosing his first TOP tooth, it's awfully wiggly!
