Summer 2012

This summer has flown by, but I wanted to capture a few of the highlights- and maybe some lowlights. Jude managed to cut his cornea at Vacation Bible School, which resulted in 3 doctor visits and an eye patch.
Don't worry though, he made a full recovery and was back to his natural destructive self. He managed to spray an entire bottle of sunscreen all over the house- including on the cushions of one of our new sofas. We still love him though!
The same day that Jude injured his eye, a rock flew threw one of our glass doors and shattered it. Fortunately we could get it repaired in a few hours. It was very eery watching the glass continue to crack for those couple hours!
Noah went to a week of camp at the Jacksonville Zoo. He and his friend Eli had a lot of fun, although I am not sure that it was the life changing experience that Ben claims zoo camp was for him as a child. I think maybe they let kids get a little more "hands on" with the animals way back then.
We thought that we were not going to be able to go to camp this summer but Ben decided at the last minute that he didn't want to miss out on all of the fun! He took Noah and Jude to Camp Greenville while Sherry stayed at home with Lily. A few other families from Jacksonville were there to keep them company. Ben took the boys through McRae, Georgia on their way to visit his Dad's grave site.
They had plenty of fun at Camp Greenville's family camp this year, even though it rained more than usual. Noah went on the rope swing, high dive and big slide! He also got to ride his favorite horse, Amber. The boys had so much fun spending 4 days with their Dad.
Oh yeah, we also celebrated our 10 year anniversary this summer! The boys got to cruise around the neighborhood in the fancy limousine before we headed to dinner to celebrate!
I'm sure I missed some stuff in here! It's hard to believe that school starts for us in one week!
