More Pictures of My Boys....Big Surprise

This blog has become my bragging page about my boys. Sorry if you don't care for that...I know atleast one person will appreciate it...huh, Nana?! Summit has a few new tricks. His very favorite thing to do now is clap his hands. If he hears the word YEAH he can't help but clap his hands. He also likes to give high five. He thinks it is so fun. He has also started standing for a few seconds on his own. He uses anything he can to get to a standing position and then he will stand there and play without holding on. He also loves to make noise. He plays with grandpa's drum whenever he gets the chance. He just discovered the guitar when Austin was playing it yesterday.

We went on a hike as a family last night to Rush Creek. We live in the most beautiful place ever! Don't tell anyone...we want it to stay that way.

Austin is loving the summer! He is so excited to have so much time to relax. He worked really hard this year and definitely deserves it! He's at the top of his school now...a big 8th grader. Wow...where does the time go?!

Families are so great!

Nothing much to say just some cute pictures we've taken lately.

Daddy and Summit stayed home from church cause they were sick and this is what I came home to.

Here's Summy with his Uncle's. He and Austin are so lucky to have such great uncles on both sides!

This was Mother's Day breakfast.....I was so spoiled. My boys are AMAZING! I'm so grateful for the sealing power, that I can be with them forever...I'm so lucky!

I love's Summit with Zeke and Gio at the pool.

The Crack (in the clavicle)

Austin and I have joined forces to bring you some very exciting news! Austin has his first broken bone. We're a little late in posting this cause it happened two weeks ago but that's alright. Tonight at dinner he said it almost feels totally healed. Here's the story though. Austin and his friend Logan were biking at Seven Hills (Austin's school) on friday night. Now that Austin is 13 he thinks he is superman. I thought they grew out of that stage at 5 but apparently it comes back in teenagehood. So he found a nice big jump and flew off of it. He cleared the pit after the jump but didn't land right. He flew over the handle bars, did a flip and landed on his shoulder. We were having a nice relaxing dinner at Andrew's parents house when Logan called. He said that Austin fell and hurt himself so they were ready to come home. We didn't think anything of it so Art and Roz went to get him. Then a few minutes later we got a call from a police officer asking for our information. He said Austin had been hurt and an ambulance was on its way. Ugh! So we got in the car and went down to Seven Hills. When we drove up there was a fire truck, an ambulance, a cop car, Art and Roz and Logan and his Dad. Austin was in quite a bit of pain and wasn't really sure what had happened. They got him fully stabilized in a c-collar and taped to a board because his neck hurt. Then they loaded him in the ambulance and off we went. After all that we found out it was a broken collar bone....and here's the proof. The xray is turned the wrong way but you can see the break right in the middle of the picture. Austin was so tough. He wouldn't take any pain medication until the Doctor insisted and put it in his IV.

Then it was time to go home and lay low. He sat an watched TV for three days and then it was time to go back to school.... :( Here they are watching a movie....well I interrupted them for a second to take the picture...they weren't really watching TV in that position.

Her is Austin a week later standing by the jump...he said he can't wait to get back on his bike.

And this was the look Summit gave Austin when he saw him in the c-collar, taped to the board. Not really...but I thought it was a funny picture.
