Pre K

Luke started his final year of preschool before he goes to Kindergarten. He loves his preschool, his classmates and his 3 teachers. I am very lonely when he is at school for 3 hours. I miss my little buddy!!! I am going to have to get used to it because from here on out the amount of time I have with him will get shorter and shorter. When did my baby boy grow up? Luke got home from school and wanted to sell some cookies for back to school. Luke made $10 in about 30 mins. The neighbors, gardeners and mail lady are very good to him. Did I mention how much I love this boy!

fun times jumping off the Catamaran

The Moms and McKenzie enjoying pastries alone with no children

The gang plus the Blocker kids who spent most the time on our boat

Our family spent 6 days in Catalina aboard a 40 ft. Catamaran (Mai Tai) with the Neuendorf's and the Parry's. Captain Jo charted a beautiful boat with 12 wild & crazy kids and 6 well mannered adults. Our boat looked like a refugee camp. We ate double scoops of ice cream, hiked, rode the "buzz bomber" behind the zodiac, ate lots & lots of yummy food, made virgin pina coladas daily, laughed, played card games, soaked up the sun, cruised around in the zodiac letting off stink bombs, celebrated Judith's sweet 16th birthday, and watched 30-40 Grey whales surround our boat in the middle of the ocean. The pirates even came on our boat one night and drew all over the kids faces while they were sleeping. The kids loved it! We all had a fantastic vacation! We are so lucky to have such wonderful friends that we can travel with. I love the memories we are making!!!
