nine cousins

In June we had a week with the Davidsons. It is a pretty rare treat to have them visit in the summer and we made the most of it. Pretty sure we swam everyday, had some good food, lots of fun and they were even here for VBX. And they let me take a few pics before it was all over. 
All the kids have such distinct personalities so i really wanted to give them a chance to show it and i do see each of them so much in these next photos....LOVE!
 I am so crazy about these nine little people.

Campbell's graduation

At the end of May...maybe June...our little man graduated Kindergarten. His first day of kindergarten seemed like yesterday and as he walked across the stage to get his "diploma" I had a vision of him at eighteen graduating high school. An exciting day and a little sad.
When did he get so big?
Wilson got to come down from his class to watch Campbell's graduation. He is such a sweet and supportive big brother.

hot springs farmers market

In late May we took a weekend trip to Hot Springs. I have always wanted to check out the Hot Springs Farmers Market and was so excited to talk my mom into a quick trip. It was super cute with this pavilion they built and a good selection of farmers, bakers and even live music.
If you get a chance I would say check out this adorable market in downtown hot springs. I can't believe summer is over and the markets will be closing soon....flew by.

field day

 Field day was at the end of May and though it is hard to imagine it was actually a pretty cool day. I remember Campbell having chill bumps after getting wet and Wilson would not even do the water games.
 He did love the tug of war game and both boys loved the sack race. Campbell was all in on the water can game.
 It was a weird change to have both boys in school and try to go between both classes. For the past two years Campbell has followed Wilson around at field day and I think he was thrilled it was his turn.
 happy boys and great friends

book character day

 Sometime in May the boys had book character day at school (i know it is August). Such a fun way to get the kids talking about books they like and how important reading is. Wilson knew he wanted to be someone from Harry Potter, he went with Colin Creevey, and Campbell picked one of my favorites, How I Became a Pirate. We borrowed a HP cape, wand and tie from the Chinos and with a camera from my collection Wilson was set. For Campbell I sewed a stuffed parrot to his shoulder and with some tattoos, a bandanna, and a belt he was good to go.
 When they got to school each class got to parade around to show how they had dressed and what book they had chosen. It was pretty adorable.
 Wilson and his best buddy had both dressed up from Harry Potter...loves.
Trying for a little blog catch here is what we have been up to for the last four months :)

first day

 It was a CRAZY summer, full of fun. Because of all the fun it flew by and I totally cannot believe that the boys are back in school. I have a first and a third grader.
 The boys let me grab a few pics yesterday morning and then we were off.
It was a great day and despite some tears shed last night (tired boys) they were excited about another good day today.
