OH Summer....Where have you gone?

Summer is over for all practical purposes. Hollace registered for school yesterday and reports to 1st GRADE tomorrow! Wow. The summers always fly by, but it seems that it was faster than ever this year.
It seems like summer was just getting started then we took a little trip to Oklahoma and spent about 2 weeks with the stomach bug-now summer is over. We did take a quick trip to Holiday World two weekends ago. It is a great theme park and water park in Santa Claus, Indiana. It's about a 2 1/2 hr drive, so we just drove up in the morning and came back the same night. It was great, but busier than I expected. Supposedly it was the first amusement park in the world!

Here are a few last summer fun pictures. We had some great times at our neighborhood pool.
There are almost always some of the kids' friends at the pool.

Rhett is really doing a lot better swimming, but since I usually have 3 to supervise by myself, he usually has to leave the floaties on. Brent often takes the kids on the weekend while Thad naps. This is probably more fun for them. Brent can play with them and not have to worry about Thad.

My boy is seeming so grown up lately.
Of course we have to have snacks at the pool. Rhett typically tells me he's hungry withing 5 minutes of arriving at the pool. Here's Thad enjoying some refreshing watermelon.

So long summer break. We'll miss you!

Great pictures. Thad sure seems to enjoy the watermelon! Can't believe Hollace is in first grade!
