Adventures in First Grade

Sunday, July 15, 2012


Vicky at Traditions, Laughter, and Happily Ever After is having a very neat linky party!
It is all about what we have done during summer vacation.

First of all, I have had a lot of fun just playing with my boys.  They are six and three and have had some important milestones these past few weeks.

As I have mentioned before, my youngest is finally potty trained!!  Yay Parker!

My oldest learned how to ride a bike without training wheels...YESTERDAY!!

My family and I love to camp.  A couple years ago, my husband was in a really bad accident.  He was under one of his work trucks, trying to fix something when it started to roll.  The truck drug (dragged?) him for about thirty feet and he was pinned underneath the tires of his dually when the it finally stopped.  After he recovered, we made the decision that it is important that we spend as much time together as a family because you never know what the future might hold.  With that in mind, we bought a camper.

We love camping and try to get away as much as possible to enjoy special family time. 

Here is a picture of Luke yesterday after our first ever family bike ride:

I know it is a little hard to see, but the rain was pouring and I didn't want to get the camera wet!!

More good family news.  My sister got!!  This has just been an exciting summer!

Head on over to Traditions, Laughter, and Happily Ever After to link up!  I look forward to reading about your adventures!

Happy Sunday!


  1. Congratulations for potty training! I went through that ordeal a year ago & I know what a HUGE relief it is to be done with diapers! :)
