Adrien's 8th grade graduation

Saturday, August 13, 2016

Driving already?

My big boys are growing up so fast...
Lex driving
 Adre driving
 They both get their drivers license in just 2 months. Im excited, cause I plan to use their new ability to my fullest advantage. hehe

We try to visit my sister in Ky as often as we can. I'd love for the cousins to grow up together, but its just not possible right now so visits will have to do...for now.

 I sure do love my sisters, Sheile, me, Lena
 My big boys donate 1/2 of any money they receive or earn to our local hospital. They both earned a status on the hospital donation board. And Adre earned a separate plaque for his duct tape business. So proud of them.

Whats it going to take? Team-work!

Cleaning up around our house is certainly a team effort. Mom can not possibly do it all by myself.
Adre heading up the burn pile
 sweeping the deck
 and sidewalks
We decided to rock the playground
Playground before:

 Adre mowing
 Aiden taking a quick break
 Allee, Anastasia, Bella taking a break to enjoy the playground

 Laying the weed barrier

 As you can see, the burn pit is a favorite for all, especially to roast marshmallows
 The rock arrives

 I hired some youth from church as part of their fundraiser to come help spread the rock

 and put together our new grill
 Tyler and Lex cooking

Life is good...
