All four children, TOGETHER for the day

It's not very often all four are together with us.... big boy's are off and running in life now. So it was a real joy to have us all together for the drive to Las Vegas... We got to swim and eat dinner together, then we walked the strip, the big boy's rode the New York, New York roller coaster and the little one's just loved all the lights and people (well mostly, Dolly said "I don't like all these smoking people... and those BAD cards they keep trying to had us!")

The nice thing about walking the strip with little kids? They don't even try to hand them to you!

Happy Birthday, Dolly!

June 24th. Just means one thing....

DOLLY'S BIRTHDAY... so far.....

.. A little boy counts down.

Ethan has 7 day's til his 6th anniversary of his open heart surgery... he wanted to make a chart AND demanded that we do 5 things that HE WANTS TO DO, it's HIS DAY!....

Little boy doesn't know we'll be in California, at DISNEYLAND that day.... he's gonna lose his little mind when he finds out!!!!!

School lunch for Ethan

This kiddo was so excited to go to school and eat school lunch! He got a pin (that turned out to be his student #) but he had it memorized anyway.

Personally, I wish they would both let me pack lunches. I really find the choices to be limited, fatty, saturated in salt and really not that good tasting either. But, neither will let me. I may have to have a mandatory day when the school season starts....

To make it even more fun, Callie's class was serving that week, so we had Callie, Makenna and Max all "welcoming" him. He got his own "helper" to take him down the line, pick out milk, lunch and then grab silverware and veggies..... he loved it.

He's a big boy now. Even this year at the pool he can get in WITHOUT my getting in with him, so we are really heading down a new road this year.. I am very ready for a new road. I think I'm about to find a whole bunch of "new" in my life coming up soon......
