Family Reunion

We had our annual family reunion this past Memorial Day Weekend.  We headed to Austin on Saturday afternoon to meet up with my cousins and their girls from Dallas and Austin.  Avery and Sterling love hanging out with their cousins, Chandler and Taylor.  They even had a sleepover in one of the hotel rooms.  Sterling tried to have a sleepover, too; but, he got kind of sad when it was bedtime, so he ended up back in our room.

There was a great turnout of family.  There were 16 of the 17 brothers and sisters in attendance and lots of grandchildren and great grandchildren.



It is so HOT, I'm really not sure why we have it this time of year, but oh well.  It was great to see and visit with everyone.

End of Soccer Season

Avery and Sterling finished up the soccer season.  It is getting too hot to play, so I'm glad it's over for now.  As the Team Manager for Sterling's team, we got to take a free picture together.

We were able to make Sterling's end of season party; however, we missed Avery's party due to the Family Reunion.  Here is Sterling getting his trophy (the lighting was terrible, but the pizza was delicious--check out his face).

I bought this "cupcake cake" - cupcakes made to look like a regular cake.  It was very messy to pull apart, but the kids enjoyed it.  I think next time I'll just get a regular cake or cupcakes.

School's Out!

Avery is officially done with 2nd grade! It is so hard to believe that she is halfway through her Elementary years. The picture above is her on Award's Day receiving her awards from Ms. P. Avery loved having Ms. P as a teacher this year. Ms. P made a comment on each student when she was giving out the awards. She described Avery as someone who always came to school with a smile and ready to learn. She said Avery does very well in all subjects! She is great at Math, Spelling, and a great reader. I am very proud of Avery. She did wonderful this year and is now moving on to 3rd grade!
