Happy Father’s Day

We had a great day, starting with a trip to the Hagerstown Airport for their Open Air Show and the boys and I surprised Tony with a ride in a open air plane.  It was really cool.  Then we headed to Uncle Bobby and Aunt Ky’s house for dinner and A LOT of swimming.  The boys were wore out.  🙂

Sneak Peak

I had not posted anything about the bathroom in a while, but wanted to wait until we were finished.  We still have a few things left on the list:  trim, sealing the floor, shelves, etc, but for now here is a little peak!

Last day of 1st grade!

The boys had a great last week of 1st grade.

We had their Race for Education, Fun Day, mommy got them their fidget spinners they have been wanting for months and were saving their money from all the yard work they have been doing (raking grass, helped mulch, picked up sticks, they have been watering my flowers, pulling weeds, they planted sunflower seeds and lots more!) and on Friday I took them to the Family Recreational Center in Boonsboro.  SO FUN!!!  We raced go carts, played putt putt, used their batting cages, had a water war, played on their playground/moon bounces and finally……spent 2 hours in the arcade.  I think I had more fun then they did!

Art Classes

The boys have been having a great time at the art studio in Chambersburg and the ceramic studio in Waynesboro.  They recently made these adorable cows and these bunny rabbits around Easter.


I forgot we did these!

The boys and I made cupcakes for Dr. Suess’ bday a couple of months ago.  They turned out really cute.  🙂  We did 1 Fish, 2 Fish, Thing 1 &2, and the Cat in the Hat.

They are almost done!

The boys had a great season this spring.  They have come along way since last year and have really started to move past the let’s all circle around the ball mentality.  The whole team worked very hard on passing the ball, protecting the goal, attacking the ball and moving down the field when a team mate is pushing towards the goal.  It was really fun to watch.

The porch

I think is finally done. Still have some trim work that we need to do, but I love being out here, specially in the evening….with a book!


Congrats Aunt Chell!!

We could not be more proud of you and what you have accomplished over the last 21 years.  I believe you told us that you started taking college classes in 1996 and went off and on at night.  You went to Frederick Community, Hagerstown Community, Shippensburg University and I think there may have been one other in there somewhere!

I hope your day was awesome and special and the boys and I are so proud of you.   I still get a little misty eyed thinking about how awesome you are.
