Yeah summer is finally here! The first day of vacation even came with a little sunshine! Today the kids and I went to Lake Padden and had a picnic then walked around the lake. It was beautiful out there today! We have a pretty busy summer of baseball, vacation and camp. Lena will be going to her first year of Firwood this year. She is so excited she can hardly stand herself. Before she goes though we will be going on a Mexican Rivera Cruise. All 4 of us. We're very excited about this trip and can't wait to go!

Geneva Elementary Home of the Gnomes

As most of you know my family moved this last summer. We moved across town which meant changing schools for the kids. We made the move in the summer so that they wouldn't have to switch schools in the middle of the year. Our new school is Geneva and we couldn't be happier. We love our new home! We're not thrilled about the mascot, we are now the Gnomes! Yep the Gnomes!! Geneva has the most amazing principal who is such a good sport. He even sported a "Greatest American Hero" costume...blonde curly wig and all! We also had a transition when Whatcom's sixth graders came into the school. It was quite the experience because the kids embraced them and welcomed even dubbing us the "Wild Gnome-Cats" (whatcom is the wildcats). All in all it was an amzing year. We can't wait until next year when I will have a second grader and a *gulp* a fifth grader!!!!!

Photo Shoot

Today I took the kids out for a photo shoot. I couldn't think of what to do for Jason for Fathers day so I decided to get some new pictures of the kids so that we can update the one's he has in his office. Once I got the hang of how to change the brightness on my camera I got a few good shots. here is just one.... but shhhhhh because he doesn't know we went.

I stink at this

I have come to the conclusion that I really stink at this whole blogging thing! It's been almost a year since we've moved. We're still loving our new house and neighborhood. We've made new friends and the kids are liking their new school. I'm going to attempt to try and get on here more often. We've discovered a lot of things that we didn't know when we first moved here. Like all the wild life that comes along with living here. We've got baby deer and my favorite are my humming birds! We have 4 total. I only got picture of the two brown ones but I have two red ones too...
