Today was his first day of school. Here's our big first grader!
We also had a birthday to finish celebrating. Lucas turned 7 and he was super glad to come home to some long awaited presents. Axel was just as excited. He's been telling everyone we meet (all summer) that Lucas was getting a Mothership! This is a LEGO Alien Conquest kit and it didn't disappoint! Either did the Angry Birds Mighty Eagle cake I made while Daddy helped build LEGOS!
Did I mention that all this took place the same day after driving our last leg (3 days total) from Colorado...after flying back from Oregon to Denver on day one? Crazy?! And yes, we started in Mississippi that morning and drove through the most horrendous rain storm I've ever seen. At times I wondered if we were in a hurricane! We were glad to be home. :)
As for the rest of the summer...please be patient! We have some amazing stories, adventures and photos to share.
