Library and Movies

First visit this summer to the library was a success! Ashleigh had reserved some books and she also got a few more. (She even bought a book. It was a bargain at 25 cents.) Dylan had no trouble finding book, but needed Ashleigh's help in deciding which ones to borrow this week. Austin chose his books mainly from the non-fiction section (I glad he is reading!), but he has many books from the Goosebumps series at home. Only 1 movie this time! That is ok because Dylan has been on a Guys and Dolls (Cane Bay High School Drama Company) watching spree too. He has watched the musical about 12-15 times; he has it memorized (I'm sure) and points to all of Ashleigh's friends during the production.

Birthday for the Baby

I can't believe my baby is 8! However, I totally remembering all the waiting for him to arrive. With Austin being the last baby-I thought that he would be born before his due date (like the other two). But not Austin, he (and God) had a different plan. I was an anxious mama, but he was worth the wait and has kept me on my toes each day!
Ashleigh made this cake--all from scratch--cake and icing! It was delicious! (Even Dylan ate some--he likes that it tastes like a brownie.)

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
