Happy Father's Day

You may have thought I didn't see,
Or that I hadn't heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.

Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
And that we'd grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It's written on my heart.

Without you, Dad, I wouldn't be
The person I am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.

I've grown up with your values,
And I'm very glad I did;
So here's to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful kid.

I know I'm a week late, but we have had a busy week.
We are so greatful for our wonderful fathers! They have both given us so much! Happy Father's Day to our Dads!
It's been so wonderful getting to watch Matt grow as a father the past 7 years. It's so amazing how much our kids love and adore him. He is great with them! Thanks for being so wonderful to our little babies! I love you and Happy Fathers day!
We got to spend Fathers Day at the lake with my dad and my siblings which was a pretty good time. I have a few pictures to post!

Sorry I've slacked off the last month or so, but things got a little crazy as they tend to do at the close of a school year and the start of summer. I'll try to put everything into a nutshell and be brief. We haven't had anything too exciting take place this past month. As I said school is out for summer for Kylie and myself. She's very excited for the break and happy because her best friend moved in right next door! All the kids are enjoying summer and our gorgeous weather. I too am excited to have a little break from the classes and spend some time at home doing pretty much anything I want too! Tyler finished his t-ball season last week and ended on a good note by hitting a home run! He loves baseball and his papa loves to play with him which really encourages his love for it. Tyler will be starting Kindergarten in August and he has been pretty excited up until recently. I think it finally hit him that his freedom of coming and going with his grandparents and daddy is going to come to a halt! Kylie will be in the 2nd grade, and she finished 1st grade as the top reader in her class! Our little Roo, is a handful and I'm pretty sure she will continue to be that way! She is a spoiled rotten little thing and she knows it and takes full advantage! I think she is gonna be lost come school time and not know what to do. Kennedy is growing along at a rapid rate, have you seen her thighs lately? She's def got the chub that all my babies get! It's funny because she was so spindly for so long! Anyway all the kids are happy and healthy and enjoying summer!
Matt and I are enjoying it too, we are trying to get a camping trip planned here one of these weekends, but as it goes things keep coming up that prevent it. The summer has been pretty steady with some business for the toilets so thats been a blessing to us. We planted a garden this year for the first time. It's nothing grand, but it's a start and at least I think we figured out we can successfully grow something! I am going to be taking my state board exam for my CNA license this month and then I'll start back to school in August. Anyway that's about it for the time being in a nutshell as I said. I'll post a few random updated pics a bit later!!
