Summer 2013

Yes, I am going to attempt to write one post about the entire summer. So be prepared for a lot of pictures. I seriously have to catch up on this thing!

Although, can I defend myself for a minute? So, I got the crazy idea to teach preschool myself this year. I have 5 students, Luke and Grace included. We meet twice a week for 3 hours each time. It's fun but BUSY. I spend so much time preparing for each lesson!

Anyway, that's my "excuse" for lagging behind. Ok, soooo...

In May we went to pick strawberries but by the time we got there they were closed. Instead we bought a basket of berries and ate them in the parking lot. Holy cow, those were the best strawberries EVER. 

Luke and I went on a Mother-Son Date Night at Chick-Fil-A:

We spent time with Drew's grandparents:

And then we went to Washington to see the folks! It was just me and the kiddos on a country-wide airplane trip. Yup, it was...intense. And Luke started the trip off on an exciting note when he puked on the plane before takeoff and I actually got to use the little paper bag in the seat pocket. Oye. But the trip was great! We got to see my little brother return from his mission from the Philippines and then drive down to California to see my niece get baptized. An AWESOME trip!!

Road trip!!

The cousins that were there:

And there were lots of other pictures, but they're on my iPad, so this will have to be good enough.

Also, after we got back from our Washington/California trip, Drew's parents and his brother Matt came out to visit. We went to the North Carolina mountains and played and then to Myrtle Beach.

And that's our summer in a nutshell!!
