We are so excited for this little boy! Our school district offers free pre-school for 200 of its students that will be going to kindergarten the next year. This year they had 230 applicants so our chances were pretty good. Blake was chosen in the lottery which means he got in! He will be going to school four days a week, three hours a day. We are so excited for him and have been told how great the school is. The best part is that it's free!! He starts in the middle of August and I don't know who's more excited, me or him!

Summer has sprung!

So summer has officially begun in our home. In an effort to keep the kids busy every day we decided to run through the sprinklers one afternoon. The kids had just received their new bathing suits and were super excited. This is how we broke them in. I can see us doing this often this summer. As you can tell, they had a great time!
I forced Kalli out into the middle and she sure loved it! Although she liked being on the sidelines much better. Yea, he loved it! I bet you can't tell from this face that she was having fun! One of the few times they are getting along. This is what Kalli preferred.
We had so much fun and can't wait to get to the pool next!

We have our very own Handy Manny! errr Handy Joe!

So I found a great kids picnic table on a great website that I asked Joe to make. We were waiting for a good weekend where we would have enough time to work on it. Last weekend was that weekend. Let me just warn you that when you go to this website, you may become addicted with all the projects you could have your husband or you do. It's a bit ridiculous how many of these projects I want done. Joe already has his assignment for the next project he's going to work on. You have been warned! The site is and it's amazing! On to the project!
Just starting out! Happy guy getting to work with his hands. I think he loved every minute! My side of the garage was turned into his work area. All done, and can you tell how much the kids love it? I love it too! In fact, Blake loves it so much the first night we had it he had to go eat dinner out on the table in the garage. Silly boy. Now we are trying to decide what color to paint this beauty. Blake told me he wanted orange, I was thinking red. What do you think?
