January photos

I kind of despise January but this year was particularly busy, so it went by fairly fast.  I'm so glad it's Feburary!

He had to fill out his Valentines the second I bought them.

Andrew at his 1st Reconciliation. He was so proud and had a great day!
 

We are trying to get outside to get some exercise most every day even if it's ridiculously cold!
 
 
 

And a few everyday photos from December I haven't posted!

Pinewood Derby

Elliott is in Boy Scouts this year and Pinewood Derby was last weekend.  Elliott did most of the work and was proud of his car.  He placed 2/4 in the Lion Cubs, so he got to participate in finals, where he placed somewhere in the middle :) He has the sweetest boys in his den and the 4 of them have gotten to be good buddies.

Building his car.





Finished car!


Race day!

Andrew and I went to a family fun concert with an instrument petting zoo and he talked about it for months.

May
Our baby turned 5.

Second trip to the lake, including s'mores and kayaking of course!

The boys learned how to swim (!) and we went to the pool a lot!  It was the highlight of the summer.
