i'm so behind

so many post little time!  to say we have been busy is an understatement.  i can't type fast enough to keep this blog updated!  the end of the school year came with parties that i was solely responsible for planning; blankets for their 3 teachers that i was mostly responsible for making; plays that my son was partly responsible for starring in; talent shows; poetry readings; more baseball games...the national league championship, thank you very much; graduation parties; sleep overs; celebration dinners; weddings; and a plethora of other most important events are just a few of the mentionable goings on around here.  so, it's not shocking that the poor puddin cup and her sugar plum sister have killer summer colds.  their coughs sound horrible.  you know...the real chesty type.  i must's been fun.  a blast, actually.

i will attempt to post a few of my favorite pictures, as my basketball loving boys are watching dallas catch the heat...hoopin and hollerin here in the living room.  they really are a good, little sound track to my "this is our life right now" post.  colt just yelled, "TAKE IT TO THE FREAKIN HOOP!"  okeedokee.  on to the proof of the extreme cuteness that surrounds me on a daily basis...

        first off...who doesn't just love watching a baby who has just learned how to run?  and don't even get me started on how that top flows in the summer breeze... may come as a surprise to some of you that my very favorite animal in the whole, wide world is a deer.  and here i got to hug one.  i was BEYOND excited.

i just can't help but love this picture of aiden on her field trip to the wild life park, (where i got to hug the deer.)  she borrowed her friend's hat and looked like she stepped right out of a modeling shoot.  not that i'm bias.

my girl got to pet a deer too!!  she wasn't AS excited as i was...and didn't do any hugging either.

kindergarten field day.  she doesn't loooooove running...but gets the job done when she has to.

she did better than expected in the potato sack race.  now...that's a waste of time and energy in my opinion...but the kids seemed to love it.

this is colton's mile relay team.  they were favored to win by a long shot.  they ended up coming in second...due to these four having to run the long distance mile and some sprint races right before the relay.  who was in charge of scheduling the events of fourth grade field day????  that's what i'd like to know!

annslee was obsessed with the coconuts.  she wouldn't take them off all night long.  i'm pretty sure she ate dinner in them.  fourth kid.....whatever makes them happy is what i say!!  she can wear the coconuts to church if necessary.

chase wrote a poem called "school days."  it was amazing!!  and he dedicated it to his mother...which made it all the more better.

these were "my boys" from the fourth grade field trip to the houston museum of natural science.  those 4 and i had a blast together...and formed some lasting friendships. we had a picnic outside for lunch on a big hill that we ended up running down over and over.  i also climbed this amazing oak tree and made all the kids jealous.  i enjoyed being a kid with my oldest kid!  let it also be said here that the teacher gave us a big packet of questions that we had to find the answers to in the texas exhibit.  it was a challenge and contest between the whole class.  there were tough questions that we had to find the answers to and we won!!!  we got to have a pizza party in the classroom for lunch that friday.  my competitive nature maaaay or may not have reared it's ugly head during that experience.

just because i love it...

and this is how i get through all the crazy business.  i kid.  sorta.  wink.

this is annslee comforting her sister after she stubbed her toe.  i just found it very endearing.

here we have annslee showing her true obsession with her pappy.  i'm pretty sure this is going to become a problem at some point.  but for now....whatever her sweet, little, baby-ness wants regarding the pappy is what she gets.

oh boy...when it comes to the littlest sister's biggest brother...she's got stars in her eyes!  she is trying to get the hand positioning juuuuust right. 

her first painted piggies just made my day.  all of us girls have matching toes for the summer.  coral is our official color this season.

we went to pappasitos for dinner with some good friends on the last day of school to celebrate.  they gave all the kids tortilla dough.  this is how they chose to utilize that...

don't you just love colt's handlebars?

marching to the beat of her own drum, once again...aj insists upon wearing sunglasses in the bath.  who knows?  i don't even pretend to understand anymore.  i just smile and take pictures.

me and my kid after he and his team won the national league championship.  the city championship game is this wednesday.  i'm pretty sure i'll be one of the obnoxious and embarrassing parents in the stands.

this was on the way to a friend's of the only times chad and i have been alone together in a loooooong time.  i borrowed a cute, little, sun-dress from my friend.  thanks cara!!  i loved it!  i also decided to sport a summery, somewhat hippyish do...which may or may not have been a little young for me.  i really don't know the rules about that.  but...does it look like i care?

this is colton headed to his first sleepover.  yeah...yeah...yeah.  it's with a girl.  it's a long story.  you're just going to have to trust me on this one.  and his sister was there too...if that makes any difference.  these two are like brother and sister.

my kid batting.  i'm pretty sure he's going to be a heart-breaker.  i love a man in uniform.  again...i could be bias.

colton and his idol.  literally.  this man could have hung the moon and the stars, invented sugar and created sports all together as far as colt is concerned.

me and the sickies.  don't they just melt your heart.  (insert a wet, snotty, chesty cough here...)

they love each other so...

aiden and mrs. holloway  (colton and chase's kindergarten teacher as well.)  i think we could be long, lost sisters.  don't you?

chase and ms. owens (last day of 2nd grade)  she said that he was the kindest young man she had taught in all of her years of teaching.  and i believe her.

colt and mrs. brown...who is, pretty much, the best teacher in the whole school...if not the whole district.  we have all come to love this pretty lady.  and it's not hard to see why...

so...welcome to a little bit more of our world.  it's a great place to live.  you may want to visit!!
