4th of July

 This next picture shows how Alexander felt about the fireworks.  He was so full of excitement and energy the whole time we were lighting them off!  And, yes...he is wearing slippers.

First Day of School

The first day of school is always so exciting.  This year was particularly exciting because the kids were at a new school, Tope Elementary.  We switched mainly because we were having really rough afternoon/evenings trying to get everything done when everyone was tired.  Now, we get all of the instrument practicing finished in the morning before school.  The afternoons are so much more relaxed and carefree.  We are all enjoying it.  We are also really enjoying riding bikes to and from school (it's about a mile each way).  I pull the youngest two in the bike trailer.  When Eleanor is feeling a bit spunky, she screams "Woo Hoo!" when I go fast.  It is adorable.  

Thomas and Eleanor have a really sweet relationship right now.  Don't let Eleanor's face in this picture deceive you...she LOVES Thomas.  She calls him "Mah-Mo"

Groesbeck Family Reunion

I love family reunions!  Our whole family had such a great time being with these people.  I was having so much fun I didn't take time to pull out my camera until this group shot was happening.  For future reference just in case anyone wants to know...this is my Grandma and Grandpa Groesbeck with all of their living children.  From back to front, left to right...Nathan, Glen, Ben, Paulene, Lisa, Grandpa Paul, Grandma Beverly, Gaylene, Mary, and Mike.
