Finally a Halloween that wasn't wet, freezing rain, thundering and lightening or miserable! It must have been a spell that our own Harry Potter had cast, but of course our Navy Seal could have handled it and if not our Fireman would have stepped in any kind of emergency!
The boys are like old pros at the "trick or treat" and "thank you's", but this year after every, and I mean every, house Galvan would pull out the treat and show us what he got..."Look at this one!", so funny!
BC and I made the trip up to Notre Dame for the USC game. It was a beautiful day and a chilly night for a great win! We had so much fun tailgating with friends, walking around campus and cheering on the Irish!
That's what we've had going on here on Saturday mornings!
Conall is playing soccer for the Banana's and Declan is playing flag football for Christ the King. They are both having great seasons so far and we have loved watching them grow and develop. There's a deep love for sports in this family! Here's a few pictures from their first games.
Our big 3 year old started preschool! He is in Ms. Seymour 3/4's class (Conall had her also) with 15 other cuties. He will go twice a week in the mornings. They gave him his tote bag which had a folder in it...he pulled it out and said "this is for my homework!"...just like brothers! He, nor I, had any tears when he walked into his classroom (I saved mine for the car!), but he was super happy when he ran into the hallway for pick up (so was I)! Have a great year New Boo, we love you!
Don't even ask why Declan is upset!
Yep, I snuck my camera lens through the crack of the door!
These two boo's started school last week! How in the world do we have a 2nd grader and a kindergartner?! The first week of school has been absolutely wonderful for them (not so much for Galvan, who just wants his brothers back, in a really bad way!). It's a crazy feeling dropping off 2 boys for whole day, thank goodness Galvan still likes me! But seeing their smiles and listening to the stories from their day is just amazing.
Conall with his big buddies Joey and Anthony (they are Declan's good friends, but are so excited to have Conall at school too!).
Conall and Will (his best buddy).
And here's what Galvan did while the boys were at school. At least 30 times a day I hear "we pick up brothers now?" or "me want Conall"!
School starts this week, so to cap off an awesome summer we headed down to Lake Monroe with our friends the Harrington's and Moran's to spend the day tubing and hanging out! We had great weather and all 5 boys (5 little ones between us were left on shore) had an incredible time tubing, going on the wave runner, jumping in and boating with buddies! We think we found an annual back to school trip!
