Where has the summer gone?

Gunna eat a carrot?!
4 little monkeys....Ella with her post surgery favorite that Puh made for her - STEAK!

A dancer AND a swimmer

Our first tomato...or as Ella calls it - our baby!

I think most of it was consumed by moving and the tonsil removal! Ella did spend a week at golf camp at Nana and Pepaw's house as well as both her and Jude going to West Plains for a week. Jude also had a sleepover with Lofton, Ella had one with Riley and Gabe went to KY for a few days. We did alot of swimming and had alot of cookouts. There was also a birthday party and 4th of July bash. The kids enjoyed VBS at our church talking about the Superheros of the Bible. Ella got to spend the Saturday in KY at my parents VBS too at the tail end of her golf camp. We didn't make it to the beach this year but let's NOT forget our camping trip (see previous post). The summer has seemed so long but so short at the same time. It has been another great time with lots of memories that have been made with our friends and family. I can't believe Ella will be a 1st grader next week. I am going to do better this year tears (or at least none for anyone to see and I won't rat myself out). Here are some recent pictures of summer fun.

Summers do go by quick. We have had about 10 days of sun. It will probably start snowing next week. Your family is getting so big. Jude is so big!
