It is hard to believe that my little guy is already in 2nd grade this year. He was up and ready early that morning waiting on the bus. Mommy use to not let him ride the bus but "Grandma Chip" thinks mommy needs to unloosen the Velcro strap just a little. Annalei was up that morning to see "D" (that is now what Annalei calls him) off on the "Big Yellow Bus". She does not understand that he is off to school, she just thinks "D" is on the bus all day long.

Where does the time go? I just wish I could keep my kids little "FOREVER"!!!!

Well now that I finally have the time to update again I am going to rewind from the reunion. After we returned home from Pennsylvania we went back to baseball. Dalen's team did really well all season they only lost 2 games. Tournaments started and they ended up 4th place. GREAT JOB, you boys had a great season!!!

After baseball we went to the Morgan County fair. Dalen is in mini 4-H, he did 20 projects, he showed Daisy (the dog) in the pet parade, he showed his goat named Daisy 2, and he showed a sheep named Chevy!!! Then he rode his bike in the bike rodeo on Thursday. As you can see we spent a lot of time at the FAIR!!! Can't imagine what it will be like once he is out of mini 4-H and showing more animals!!!

After the fair, we went camping for the weekend with the horses and Gina, Scott, Khrista, Brooke and Madison came with us. We had a great time and we even got Brooke and Madison to finally ride a horse. It was their first time ever riding and Chad told them if they would ride he would ride also. Chad is not real fond of horses, but he did follow through with his promise!!!

After our camping weekend we had our "Lazy Day's" festival here in Gosport. It starts on Thursday and goes through the weekend. They always have live entertainment, good food and a parade that Dalen and Daddy always ride in on the fire truck. We also entered Annalei in the baby contest, which of course she was the cutest baby there but did not win!!! Daddy even wanted to show her off and was the one that took her in front of the judges!!!!

So, now that summer is over we had to get ready and get back in the groove for school!!! All mommy can say is "I NEED A RELAXING VACATION ON THE BEACH"!!!!!

I know I have been slacking on my blogging but we have had a long and busy summer. Our kids have kept us on the go. Are most exciting adventure this summer was our reunion with our China famlies. We had such a wonderful time and it is so amazing the bond we will all have for a lifetime. Five out of the nine families met at Hershey Park, Pennsylvania, (so you can imagine all the chocolate that was ate), we enjoyed the amusemant park, Hershy gardens and Chocoalte World!!! My favorite time was when we all came back to take the girls swimming at the pool and just watching all of them play it is so amazing how they have all grown . They are all so adorable and what a blessing they have been to each and every family. We look forward to our reunion next year in Chicago!!!!
