summer fun

We are having a blast so far this summer. Lots of swimming, basketball camp, cheerleading camp, football camp, vacation Bible school, playing with neighbors. Kolton takes it all in stride. He is doing so well, it's AMAZING! He has been home 6 weeks and understands nearly everything we say. He can also get us to understand him most of the time as well. Both Karson and Kolton learned to ride a two-wheeled bike on Friday night. Kolton has had several crashes, but Mr. Caution (aka Karson) hasn't had any yet. Also Friday night, Kolton caught his first firefly! He was in awe! That is such an amazing thing to experience through the eyes of a child for the first time.

Last day of school....Karaline, Karson, and Kolton will be homeschooled next year. We are SO excited, but our last day at school was so bittersweet. We love our school and all the wonderful people there.

Karaline and her friend (and our neighbor) on the last day of 3rd grade Karson, Kolton, and their friend (and our neighbor) on the last day of Kindergarten.

Our spring soccer season is over too. John coached Karaline's team to 2nd place in tournaments and Kollin & Karly's team to tournament champs! It was so much fun! Here are the kids at the soccer park for Karaline's game.

My brother-in-law with a little stinker on his back :)

The first 3 or 4 weeks home, this is about all the kids did (and yes Karson has twine tied around his waist...don't ask me why. Maybe the Friar Tuck look is back?)

It quickly turns into this (keep in mind this is during a soccer game that is going on just a few feet from them wrestling on the ground)

Which leads mommy to do this (time out). lol
Of course it doesn't last long and they get out of timeout and have their smiles back too. Of course my brother-in-law wastes no time getting them all riled up as soon as they are out of timeout.
