This summer started with the last day of school and my house was filled with teens-Ashleigh's friends with games/movie and food after swimming. Then, boys and I were off to Ga. for a visit while Ashleigh held down the fort and attended graduation and had fun with friends. Back home and then off to 4 classes for me as I finished by gifted endorsement recognized by SC.  We also have had some outings at the lighthouse and downtown. Ashleigh completed orientation at Trident in relation to her dual enrollment and now we can continue with our summer plans and spur of the moment ideas. Here are some recent photos

Growing Up TOO fast!

This kid keeps me on my toes, but I love every minute of it--except that he is growing up too fast!

Loving LIfe

The pictures capture all the love for life. Dylan's smile is contagious. While he isn't happy all the time (yes, he is a teenager), his smile can melt your heart. He makes one realize the little things we take for granted, yet he encompasses strength and love. He loves mom, dad, Ashleigh ("my sister" as he says), Austin, and Chompy. He loves people!! Dylan loves people watching and hanging out with all kinds of people. He loves to see people HAPPY! He love sports-all kinds-from ping pong to basketball and golf to soccer. You name a sport and he loves it. He loves food! However, there are certain foods he loves more. He loves school and church, but most of all-HE LOVES LIFE!
