Goodbye Summer Fun

All this summer bliss must come to an end. School starts on Monday. I am SO excited about starting a new homeschool year with my smaller 3 but so sad that my biggest two are leaving me to go back to school. 8th grade and HIGH SCHOOL. I cannot believe Kollin will start high school this year.
I rarely make an appearance on my blog but got my picture taken at a family reunion this summer with all the cousins I grew up with. Ahhhh the memories. :) I'm between my two sisters in the front standing row.
This is one of the few pics I got of my big boy this summer. He was always at band or hiding from my camera. Ain't he GORGEOUS? ;)
Karson hanging out on my great grandmother's front porch. She raised 7 kids in this house and this spot was her favorite spot...her front porch glider.

The food our family can produce is mind blowing. :)
Kemry with her two cousins!
Kollin & Brad (Kayla's BOYFRIEND...oooooh)
Tying a string to a June Bug's leg with uncle Daniel. Who needs gameboys?
Kolton getting bear hugs from Nanny, my mama!
the cornhole obsession has struck the Cash Crew two beauties in a swing

We also went to Columbus, OH this summer to meet up with some amazing friends.

Of course I couldn't leave out baby #7! LOL We got to see her this summer too. :) Here are a couple more u/s pics. The top one is of her loooong legs (she will fit right in here) & the bottom pic is of her sleeping with her little hand propped on her cheek. As of today the name decision is down to either Kallie Elizabeth or Kerrigan Elizabeth. We are SOOOOO in love with this girl already!!!

showing me how she holds her nose before going under water
Kemry feeding the kids in the pool because they would starve to death otherwise. They won't get out even for food.

Ridin' the coasters at Dollywood

Kolton found a friend....although he wasn't pleased with him being that close to his skin. lol He was totally faking enjoying this for the pictures
Ahhh the sweat...Dollywood is SO HOT

You guys have had a great summer! I am sad to see it over...I keep putting off starting school. I just can't get into it this year.

I CAN NOT believe you have a high school student on your hands! There is no way you are old enough to have a high school boy!

Your pictures are AMAZING! I'm sure it has something to do with how beautiful all of your children are, but it also shows off your incredible talent! If I had that kind of talent I would need one millions walls so I could frame everyone of those pictures. What a great summer you have had and I am also really excited about your baby #7 and I love both names. How fun!

Not to be a copy cat, but I was just going to say the same thing as Theresa! You take awesome photos! And thanks for sharing the ultrasound photos... everytime I see one, I just choke up. So beautiful. And I vote for Kallie. Not that my opinion matters, just saying. :)

Catching up on your blog- I can't believe you are pregnant! Yay!

We haven't chatted since I was picking your brain for Guatemala adoption agencies but I check into your blog every now and then.

I am trying to convince my husband to add #5 via adoption. Not working. LOL

Take care!
