back to school

 Our first day back to school today.
We had a rocky start but it was a good day.
Summer went by way too fast, but at least we had a good one.

June update

Noah played with the Miracle League back home but this was his first year here.
He was so happy to be back playing baseball.
And even more happy to have a uniform.

Our local Catholic High School ran a Special needs sports camp.
It was their first year to do so.
Every day they had a different sport.
We were so happy to have Noah be apart of this camp.
He loved it and loved the high school kids especially his buddy.
These high school kids were so wonderful and loving. I am so proud of them.
I will forever remember how good they were to our kids.

Noah and Joel on Father' Day at my sister's house.
We had a nice cook out and a visit to a near by farm.

Have not had a chance to get to the base pool yet so just enjoying some back yard fun for now.
Noah loves the slip and slide.
And he loves the kiddie pool too.
We also planted our first garden in some awesome Earth Boxes.
Everything seems to be growing well.

This is our June so far and its been great.

Update from May

Noah had his First Holy Communion finally.
We have been working with him for a long time and felt he was ready.
He did a wonderful job and we are all so proud of him. 
The day was beautiful and sweet.

Here is Noah with Father Dave.

He finished up 6th grade the end of May.
We still need to have his assessment done but we are happy to be off for a few months.
He had another great year here at home.

These were the highlights of our May

week 1 project life

I finally worked on this first page today.
It didn't take me too long. 
I just really hope to keep up with it this time.
The first year I lost all my photos half way through in the computer crash.
Last year I just gave up.
I will learn as I go but want to keep it simple.
I used this template on BH site to see how I wanted everything in photoshop.
Then printed everything out separately.
I will share here as I go.

Happy Friday xo

Our kitty Cosmo who we adopted back in November.
He is over a year old and had owners before us that couldn't care for him any longer.
He is very sweet and wonderful with Noah.
He doesn't want much affection but I hope some day he will.
He likes loving but doesn't want to be held or sit on our laps.
He follows us from room to room and loves his toy's.
He makes my heart happy!

Happy Thursday xo
