Uniform clean-out. I hate to do this to them so early 🙂 but the one thing I have learned is that uniform shorts/pants go fast in stores and if I wait until August I can never find the right size. I have load and loads of hand-me-downs, but pants usually don’t make it far with the boys. We had a lot of laughs as Andrew tried to make some pants work-NO they are floods! I’d say, or they would fall right off of him.
We are still going strong on our summer reading program-Andrew is flying through Harry Potter and Patrick and I are really liking these books he chose. It makes such a difference when kids can read what they like. It makes ALL the difference actually.

All were excellent-we both really enjoyed them.
I have always loved the light coming in our living room window in the morning-it seems so peaceful before everyone is up. This room is never perfectly arranged (usually a basketball hoop in obstructing the view slightly) but the light is always beautiful. I’m so grateful for my lovely house-whenever I pull in the driveway I just feel that great feeling of “home-ahhhh”. I hope my kids feel the same.
