I am SO ready for summer to officially start! I don't get time off or anything, but it is just more relaxed around the office and it is just LOTS of fun with our little guy! We already have had fun "summer" time things going on. Last Thursday was the last day of playschool for this "school year" so they had a fun water day! He loved it and slept like a rock that night!

Owen's teachers this year! Ms. Sharon & Ms. Amanda...he loves them both!
Then the weekend came & we got to celebrate sweet Avery's FIFTH birthday! I cannot believe she's already 5. I can still vividly see her as a newborn and getting to meet her for the first time the day she was born. It is so fun to watch all of our friend's kids grow. I hope our kids will always stay close! Avery had the BEST birthday party- at a gym! The boys LOVED it. There were trampolines, rope swing, balance beam, a big foam pit to jump in...and of course cake & ice cream! :)

PaPaw & GiGi with Miss Mikah Ann at the partyAfter the party we headed to East Texas Burger Co. for lunch & found mom a super cute GiGi hat. I think we look like twins!
Then, later that day, Amber, Luke, David, Scotty, Jodie & Avery came swimming. We just enjoyed the pool and the kids had a lot of fun swimming together. We had a great weekend with my parents in town & fun with friends!
Then on Monday, I am at work & my phone rings. My heart always stops for a second when I see that it is Owen's school calling. Ms. Kimberly said, "He's ok...but...he was running across the room and fell into a book case." Amy sent me a text with this picture:
So I left work immediately (ha!) and took him to direct care just to be safe. If this had been my 2nd or 3rd kid, I may not have been so worried, but I just cant help it with all the crazy stories you hear about kids & head injuries. I am always more cautious than some and would rather be safe than sorry. My $20 co-pay and a couple hours of time is worth my peace of mind knowing there is nothing wrong with my sweet boy! Doc said he was all good, just don't let him do any crazy activities in the next few days, like bounce houses or trampolines. The swelling has gone down tremendously and all that is there now is the bruise. He was a trooper!
The beginning of this week we have worked in the yard and swam at the pool. Owen loves to ride his bike around in the driveway while we work. He's the cutest!!
Happy early Father's Day, Daddy! He had been wanting a riding lawn mower, so I told him to go pick one out for Father's Day. Of course Owen loved riding with him!
These fun activities over the past couple of weeks has me SO ready for summer time!!
