Another week, another list of memories....

Another week down as we get closer to the beginning of a new school year.  Charli starts school the week of August 12th and Harper follows the week of the 19th I believe.  That is less than a month away, which will fly by.  With the late arrival of summer it doesn't feel possible...but I imagine we never feel "ready"!

Charil entered this art project in the open class for the Platte County Fair.  She got 2nd place...which she, naturally, thought wasn't as good as she deserved!  

Charli went to sports camp last week, and had a blast.  She enjoyed swimming every day, learning more about archery, volleyball, basketball, and well as some other sports.  They took a day to go to Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, she loved it!

Charli has expressed some major appreciation for her fan club here who has barely missed any games.  Someone from this club has been at each game, they are troopers!  She loves it!

BIG day!  Charli can now blow bubbles...which is one skill every teenager needs to top the annoying & snotty list, so she can be well on her way.  I am not ready for those days, which will be here so soon!

Harper had his 4-year check last week.  Nothing to exciting to report...he is tall like his daddy and that doesn't seem to be slowing down one bit!

This is what I found Charli playing with when I came to visit her at camp on their last day for their program!  GROSS, but kind of cute ;-)

Platte County Fair Time!

This year was extra fun because the kids got to go with some of their cousins!  Courtesy of grandpa Borg they got to travel the maze, and they did a great job!  These kids didn't give up until they found the end!

This trampoline bouncer is the best investment each year at the fair...our kids LOVE it! 

These boys had the time of the lives on the bumper cars.  Something about going fast and hitting stuff is right up their alley!

 Lucky grandma!!!

Soccer Saturday...these two are getting anxious for practice to start!

Last weekend we took a day trip to ride 4-wheelers at the river with some friends!  The kids each got to bring a buddy home for a sleepover - which was even better!  The kids had a blast, and I even got to sleep too!!


Later Mom, going to work wtih dad.  Yeah...not really dressed the part, buddy!

We are almost to the end of softball this more night of tournaments!  Charli's team will play for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd tonight, out of the 14 teams in her division.  They have had a great season with fun players and great coaches!

 Again, Charli's super fans!  These troopers stayed and watched Charli play three back to back games Tuesday night!  They were at the field for over 3 1/2 hours!!  #1 fans!

Our favorite Junebug!

Off to begin another weekend and week of crazy busy days and nights, and filling the bucket with memories!  Next week brings soccer, birthdays, and another new month...don't let time slip away folks!  Enjoy!!
