We had such a good summer. We had so many activities that kept as busy. I tried to plan a lot to keep me distracted and the kids happy and busy. We had family reunions, a girls trip, a rocky point trip, swim lessons, swimming in the evenings at my parents and just having lots of fun. Graham learned to swim! We did 2 weeks of swim class (which the kids loved!) then my sister and I decided to just try and teach the kids ourselves. After about a week with Graham he learned how to swim. Max and Sadie and Biz are all really close.
Look at that picture of Graham in the bottom left corner. Isn't he so handsome? He starts kindergarten in 3 weeks. We went to get his school supplies this week. He's so dang excited. I know he's going to love school. He's so smart.
Last month at the Hamblin Family Reunion we stayed in a cabin with our cousins and my aunt has 4 boys that Graham loves. Graham was sleeping in the living room with 2 of the boys, one is 10 and one is 6. The oldest was saying his prayers when I came to tuck Graham in and Graham said,"should I say my prayers by myself? Yea, I can do it mom." He said his prayers all by himself and it was so cute. I'm so grateful for good examples for my kids!
We didn't get to go to the Richardson Family reunion and I was so sad. It was last weekend when by body gave out on me. They are amazing. When I'm having a hard time I think of my grandma who had 10 kids. She's such a great women. She's so focused on the most important things. It's so easy to get distracted. But really the Gospel of Jesus Christ and our families are all that we need.
