Kindergarten and 2nd Grade!

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"!

Boat Day

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!
 Jack and Declan 7, Will, Conall and Mason 5
 Even Stephanie and I got in on the tubing!
 Mama and dad went for a ride!

KY Camping 2015

Last month we packed up all our camping gear (and our new tent!) and headed down to Daniel Boone National Forest in Southeastern Kentucky!  It was a hot weekend, but we were lucky to be right near Cumberland Falls and river.  We were in bear country, but didn't see any on our hikes, but Declan did spot a big snake near our campsite!  I wish you could have heard him...."SSSNNNAAAAKE!", it was hilarious!  The boys made so many s'more's, found frogs and butterflies and loved hiking and seeing the falls and couldn't get enough of jumping in off the rocks!
