Clayton and Dad campout

Clayton and Ben took a camping trip this past weekend with the Boy Scouts. They had to canoe and kayak into their camping spot, which was "totally awesome" according to Clayton.

They spent the next day canoeing down river about 6 miles and had a wonderful day. It was a great Dad/Clayton weekend.

Jamison PreK graduation

Jamison finished Pre-K this week and they had a fun graduation ceremony. Isn't he just so handsome?!

I don't know if you can be an archeaologist if you can't say "archeaologist" (it's a mouthful-try it!)...but he'd do just about anything to be just like his dad.

Emmys 4th grade graduation

It's been a big week around here- a lot of "lasts".
Last mornings to drag the kids out bed, last days of school (finally), and for Emmy, last days of Elementary school.
In our district the 5th graders go to the middle school so they have a big graduation and moving up ceremony for the 4th graders. I've been dying just a little that my little girl will be starting middle school- but it's been so exciting and fun for her. Following the graduation ceremony all the 4th graders follow their new principal in a procession line down the halls of the elementary school into the middle school for the official "moving up". It was a great thing to watch the excitement on Emmy's face and she looked so grown-up and beautiful. It's moments like these that the growing up seems to have happened overnight.
Congrats Emmalyn-we love you!

Jamison's 5th Birthday

Happy 5th Jamison!
We had a fun day celebrating Jamison. He was most excited about this awesome squirt gun that he wanted SO bad. (I love that this was so entertaining to him.)

What we love about Jamison....
  • his absolutely contagious laugh
  • his mischievious side (except when we don't)
  • he wants to be just like his older brother
  • self-appointed body guard and translator for Lincoln
  • loves a good book and a belly rub
  • meticulous colorer- and when he draws he always has to have complete symmetry (we've got some cool Jamison art)
  • his first love is candy, followed closely by his 2nd and 3rd loves-candy, candy, and more candy! (He was totally excited about the candy on his birthday cake- which incidentally was a complete disaster- but he was thrilled cause of the licorice! Whew.)
  • there is nothing small, quiet, or timid about Jamison! Cha-Cha-Cha!!
