Fragmented Freewrite #4

We've had a busy couple of weeks. It's been a good-kind-of-busy, though!

Neil's brother Jeff came down from NY for a few days. Sam and Luke had a ball with their Uncle Jeffy...taking him to Tellus, swimming, playing Legos and showing off our great church. It was a fantastic last hurrah for the summer, and we miss him so much.


Luke stuck a plastic lid into one of the intake vents for our A/C. Thankfully it isn't dangerous, so we can still use the air. (The heat index is well over 100 degrees in GA right now.) It scared me to death when I realized what happened, tho. I think I scared hm to death, too, so hopefully he won't do it again!

And, speaking of Luke...this weekend I'm taking him to a "model shoot" that two of my friends are hosting. He has such an easy personality that I think he will really enjoy it a lot. Plus, it's at a cool play place near our home.


I mentioned a few weeks ago that Sam participated in the Super Summer Swap. He and Blake were paired up and it turned out to be a ton of fun.

We made an envelope scrapbook for Blake and sent him some Kennesaw related trinkets, like confederate money, an Indian arrowhead and "Grow Your Own Civil War".

Blake sent Sam a bunch of handpicked jelly beans, a pack of chili, some cool postcards and an album full of pictures. Sam was most impressed by Blake's 4-wheeler!


School has started and Sam already loves it. He was so excited to start Kindergarten, that he woke up extra early on Monday. He's even riding the bus! (I never thought I would let him do that.) And, we really love his teacher.

Two cute things that Sam said about his first day were:

1. "My Spanish teacher is nice, but she's not the greatest teacher in the world."
2. "I didn't talk to anyone in the cafeteria b/c I just wanted to enjoy my lunch."

He's such a fun kid!

I love that your boy knew how to take care of himself; all of that stimulation of school can get to be too much! SO glad you can still use the AC! He was being a typical, curious kid, but you'd hate to have to sell him to pay the repair bill! haha

It looks like you and your family have had a wonderful Summer Dina. Love the photos especially the first one with their Uncle. Your boys are just so precious! I know you already know that (smile).

I always enjoy my visit. Love and hugs.
