it has begun.......

School is in! And I am tired! Haha, seriously though, I know this is going to be a great year. My kids are awesome, I have a pretty good schedule, and who wouldn't want to work for their dad (especially when he is as cool as mine=).
I have some pictures to post........We went on vacation, the garden is crazy, and Kole started school. Get ready.....cuz here they come.....
Here are the boys, planning out the route to the beach.....OCracoke Island, Outerbanks, NC
WERE THERE!!!! They were running from the waves. Needless to say, we got very wet.
We got a kite to fly too.....it was fun.

This one is definately getting framed.


Seagulls on the ferry boat. We drove our car onto to boat to get to the island. I thought this scene was to perfect not to snap a photo.....



Another cool shot from the dock.




Family photo.....




Blackbeards museum......ARG!!






We found so many shells!








ARG AGAIN!!!!





Kole and I went crabbing! It was so fun!!!!! We caught 2 big ones and lots of little ones. The male blue crab is in this shot!











Family photo on the ferry.





It rained a couple days so we played some card games...it was fun too!



Kole learned to do a back flip and a front flip in our villas pool.




Ocracoke Lighthouse......

We loved the beach!








Now on to my garden.....It exploded while we were on vacation! It is a jungle, in both good and bad ways. Weeds are awful.......but everything is producing so well.

These are watermelon and are now bigger than my head.....if you can imagine...haha. We have 6 of them growing well.





Our HUGE sunflowers.......

I actually just picked all this today. I have gotten baskets and baskets full of produce. We have green beans, gourds, corn, sunflowers, watermelons, pumpkins, tomatoes, potatoes, banana peppers, jalepeno peppers, green bell peppers, carrots, squash, eggplant, onions, and cucumbers. I think thats it....
Zach was in awe......My tomatoes are just going crazy!
I took a canning class this summer as well.....Here are some green beans.

And hot pepper mix.......






Ok Now what you all been waiting for......First day of school for Kole!!! He loved his first day. He says the bus ride is a little boring, but woke up this morning (saturday) and begged to go to kindergarten.......not on a weekend my dear!!!!!
Zach was fixin Koles hair here......


Ready to go! He was up at 6:30 jumping on our bed saying, we are going to miss the bus!!....Get up!!! His bus doesnt come until 7:55.............

There he goes.....I was crying behind the camera! It is hard to let them go......

This is getting back off the bus....
Here he is running towards me yelling, "IT WAS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!"





So anyways, things are good with us. Still recovering from a long, emotional first week of school. I think I am going to go nap now.........

I love the updates, Megan!! I'm so glad that Kole loves school. He is so cute!

I am so impressed with your gardening and canning! The green beans remind me of Mamaw's that we always ate growing up. We called them "Arkansas green beans." I'm not sure I ever knew that green beans could come from someplace other than Arkansas. :)

Yea for the big kindergartener!! And yea for the mommy, letting him go!!

Your garden is wonderful. I'd do one too, if I didn't hate to sweat and get dirty...

:)
