We are visiting our families. Both sets of grandparents have pools so we are getting in a lot of swim time. The cousins are having a blast playing together. I am taking tons of pictures. It is hard to pick a handful to share.

For Father's Day, the kids and Momma made Daddy a book. The book had a letter in it from Momma, interviews from the boys about Daddy, and artwork from all of the children. The kids worked really hard on the book and were excited to give it to Daddy. I'll post the interviews soon. They are precious.

JA: "What are you thinking?"
Seth: "I'm thinking about how bad Jonathan smells."
Jonathan: "Probably because I went through the sewer pipe."
JA gives Seth a confused look.
Seth: "It was just a storm drain. I mean, it was 75 yards long under a road... but it was just a storm drain."

Today is Jonathan's last day of Second Grade. I took a picture of him on the first day of school and on the last day.
When I found the picture from September, I laughed. He's wearing the same shirt!
Here he is on the 1st day of school.
Here he is this morning before school.
Here is another picture of him after he grabbed his book. Everyday (starting after birthday in April) Jonathan takes a book from the "Diary of the Wimpy Kid" series to school. He reads on the bus and he reads when he has extra time in class. I cannot tell you how many times he has read these books. He keeps reading them over and over.
He has come a long way this year! At the beginning of the year, he told me he loved math and didn't like reading "so much". Now, I can hardly get his head out of a book. It's such a joy to see him love reading.

This afternoon I walked in the Strawberry Junior Parade with my kids. We walked with my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group. The Strawberry Festival is celebrating its 100th year. Participants in the parade could choose any theme from the last 100 years. Our group choose the "Strawberry Round-up" Theme.

Tomorrow, Jonathan is walking in the Strawberry Festival Grand Parade with is cub scout group. He is really excited about that. I am sure I will have lots more pictures to share.
