Time to catch up on some Nelson Family summer highlights...
We inherited a new trampoline... complete with complimentary static
We gave Momma a makeover because seriously... she needed one. :)
We enjoyed Sunday drives... er... maybe
One of us discovered the iPhone
We took our family summer "trip" to Holiday World. (A MUST if you have kids and live within reasonable driving distance...)
We practiced our "smile-for-the-camera" faces... Nailed it.
We celebrated a Daddy birthday in July
We even made a huge birthday banner
We snuggled the birthday boy
We got into trouble.
(Momma for putting Lizzi in such a dangerous position... Lizzi for... well, okay... Lizzi actually gets away with pretty much everything.)
We lost a couple things.
We were too cool for school
We practiced being cute, and...
... some of us interpreted "cute" differently than others...
We learned new things
(Like how to sit up)
We went 8 seconds on "the Daddy"
We grew out our hair
We gave "real school" a try with outfits we created ourselves... complete with random jump rope
We lit our 4th of July fireworks in August
Gave our street a bath... actually, Someone else did that.
Practiced our mad reading skills
Served our fellow men
(Helped paint the Herrin Crisis Center)
We all pitched in
We had beautiful days together
We hit the candy jackpot at two different parades
We played outside a lot (no that's not our truck OR our house)
We made lots of new friends
We helped Momma in the kitchen whenever we had the chance
And SOME of us had lots of good sleep. :-)
We had a great summer, and are LOVING the beginning of this beautiful Fall season. Natalie is thoroughly enjoying Kindergarten, making new friends, and learning new things. Abi is my wonderful little helper, still has the CUTEST giggle on the planet, and is the sweetest big sister to our little Lizzi. Our littlest one is growing up way too fast, and is exactly like a cabbage patch doll! I'm busy as can be, but loving it. Cory is now on cruise control till the end of residency, and is currently applying for Sports Medicine fellowships.
We are healthy.
We are happy.
We are a little bit silly.
Life is good.
