Happy Birthday Rylan

 This little cutie is 2 today.  He is the sweetest little guy.  Loves cars.  Loves being outside.  Loves his brothers and does his best to keep up with them.  He looks so grown-up here after his last haircut.  

Happy Birthday, Love Gram and Tito.

First Day

The boys' first day of school was on the 11th, but I am running behind posting.

All set for the first day.  Kaiden is in 7th, Trevin 4th and Gavin Kindergarten.  Gavin looks a little apprehensive!

 Trevin helping Gavin on the bus.  He has been a wonderful big brother - watching for Gavin at the end of the day making sure he gets on the right bus coming home.

Kaiden heading into middle school for the first time.  Since he did remote learning last year this is a new experience for him.

Back to School

School starts tomorrow and the boys have been getting ready to go back.  They are actually going to school this year not doing classes remotely.

This is a big change for Kaiden as he is in Middle School.  It is his second year but last year was done at home.  He met his CORE teacher, Ms. Ross.  He has actually known her for his entire life as she is a member of our church.  

On their visit to his new school, he and and Trevin found time to run around the big gym.

Trevin and Gavin will be in the same school for the next 2 years.

Gavin enjoying the Kindergarten playground.

 Then Rylan joined in the fun.

It seems so early to be going back to school but that is the way it is now.  We always went back the day after Labor Day.

On our way to the cabin back in June we stopped in Nederland to have a picnic.  After the picnic we rode the carousel.

Rylan was not quite sure about the whole thing.

I found a friend.

 Gavin didn't want to ride by himself.

but Tito and I stayed behind and enjoyed time with Rylan.

Mountain Time

We took a long weekend, rented a house near Ward and did nothing but enjoy the mountains, eat good food and relaxed.

There was a hot tub and play area which the boys really enjoyed.

There was a fire pit which we took advantage of to sit around and relax

slap at bugs,

 and make smores.

Powder Ball

One of the summer activities at the library this summer was a powder ball fight.  The boys were the only ones that showed up for their time period so it was a brother powder ball fight.  They were supplied t-shirts and balloon balls filled with powder and given 10 minutes.
They had a great time and got some pretty good hits in.
The final result was all over their shirts, their shoes, their hair

 and as you can see here their faces.  Note the yellow in Trevin's hair and his blue eyebrow.
