BBQ in the Hood

So, I love my neighborhood.  I especially love that we have events, and although I can't make it to all of them, it is so fun to have them.  It is fun to meet new neighbors and connect with old ones and just be social with the people that live next door.  We just went to our summer BBQ this weekend and had so much fun.  I am fortunate to have several close friends that live in my hood, even my BFF lives across the street. This year they helped me with the kiddos at the party since my hubby couldn't be there until a couple hours later, it's so nice having a kids benefit immensely from our village. It includes:  all the Grandparents, the Davis', the Christensens, the Voelkers, the Plums, and the Lasleys.  These families are my village people and without them, All the things that happen around here just wouldn't happen at all.  They say it takes a village to raise a child and no doubt my kids have the best village around!!!

Friday Night Lights

Flag Football season has started!! We had our season opener last night!  The three older boys were super excited to get started!! Owen was very sad he didn't get to play.  This picture below was taken by one of our friend's daughters.  I didn't even know it was taken until I uploaded the photos but it kind of captures how the night went! I'm watching Isaac's game and Bryan is watching Adam's game behind me while Bash is being fed.  

Owen discovered Barbies with all the little sisters!

Owen's First Day

First day of preschool for Owen this week!  He had his big brother Kevin help him get ready in the morning, which is why I was so surprised when we arrived at his school and his shoes were on the wrong feet  and his shorts were on backwards and he had "forgotten" to where underpants.  So we switched the shoes and pants and he went commando to his first day of preschool!  Here is to an awesome year of fun for this little man who consistently keeps us on our toes.
