Summer 2012 comes to an end

We started the fair with the "Pig Scramble"  Our boy had a good cry after a good but tough lesson learned when he didn't catch the pig.  He was more upset about losing the $10.  I don't see a future Pig Scramble.  Our little small town fair has such a great feel about it.  The kids were in heaven.  Putting my six year old on some "big kid" rides was a whole other feeling I have never felt before.  I was terrified for him but he loved the thrill. LOL!

 School started Tuesday.  A first grader and my last year of preschool!  Time is going too fast.  Charlie has been asking about the things he did when he was a baby.  I wish that I had my blog when he was an infant.  He kept me busy with sharpies, tin foil and paper towels.  Do I have to say anything else?  I do miss those sweet baby snuggles.  I now have big snuggles but I know that one day soon that too will come to an end.  With each phase there comes great joy, worry and love.  At least it all stays consistent (the joy, worry and love).  Just new surprises.  Can't wait to see what this school year will bring!

Fulfilling my passion

So, I love to take pictures.  Thanks to a few friends that have allowed me to "borrow" their children to practice!  Here are few pics of the photo sessions.

Minnie pants

I am in love with a new pair of pants. The Jcrew minnie pant!  Stretchy, little higher waist and just downright comfortable!
Minnie Pant-but I got them in royal blue! And at the outlet so they were much cheaper!!

Circus Circus

In one day on Kelley's Island, we accomplished the following...
watched a circus tent be raised by elephants
rode a camel
rode an elephant
went to the park
went to a sandy beach
played putt-putt
ate ice cream
swam in the pool
went to a circus
bounced on a moon bounce
ate cotton candy
...we were exhausted!

Later in the week, we got to spend some time with our new little cousin, Ema.  Emaline wins the prettiest baby in the family award and she is full of sweetness.  We couldn't get enough of her cheeks!!!
