first day of school 2016-2017

Camp's first day of 2nd Grade! When I picked him up from school he said, "It was AWESOME! Today was the greatest day in my whole entire life! I'm the happiest kid on Earth!" 
It's safe to say he's loving his new class and teacher. 

We got treats from Cake Shop and went to Chuy's for dinner to celebrate such an awesome first day of school!

Collinsy's first day of VPK. He had a great first day!! I'm savoring this last year of having him at preschool with me. 
Collins chose Chick fil A for his celebratory first day of school lunch complete with a strawberry milkshake!

Praying it's a wonderful school year for the three of us!!


our trip to jacksonville

At the end of June, the boys and I took a trip to Jacksonville. Our first stop was the Jacksonville Zoo!!
The boys loved petting the sting rays. Collins had to have a wardrobe change after this picture!! :) His shirt was so wet, it wasn't going to dry on its own!! 

Sweetest brothers in the world!

Ice Age 4D movie!

The boys loved the koi pond!

Train ride

We also had tickets to the Dinosaur exhibit...

Collins was a little leery!!

This picture cracks me up!!

Our next stop was the Hampton Inn on Jax Beach. I am such a fan of a Hampton Inn...I was one happy mama!! Watching my boys have fun and free breakfast. Score!!! ;)

Their first time in the Atlantic Ocean!

Our one and only group pic.

I also had to introduce them to Slurpees from 7-11!! They loved them, of course!

It was a great trip and we made some wonderful memories. 


end of school year 2016

Sweet Mother's Day tea with Collins

Sweet Mother's Day tea with Camp...this will probably be the last school Mother's Day event with Camp...wahhhh!! I think it stops in first grade. I savored every moment of this sweet morning.

This smile on Camp's face about did me in. He was so proud standing up there. And I was a proud Mama!!

End of year program.

Splash Party!

First and last day of 3 year old preschool. Excuse the water on his shirt!! 

Mrs. Durham and Mrs. Larkin
This was a special school year...Collins was on the playground with me every single morning and I loved watching him play. He played with his friends, but I was always able to get some sweet snuggles from him. I'm really going to miss that. I can't believe Collins has only one more year at Faith. :( I'm going to savor every moment with him at school with me next year!!

On the Tuesday before school got out, Camp's school held an AR (Accelerated Reader) rally for all of the students that met their AR goal for the school year. Camp earned THE MOST AR points out of ALL of the first grade!!! I got the text and pictures from his teacher while Collins and I were at Target and I immediately started crying right there in the middle of the store!!! I have never been so proud!! 

Volunteering at Camp's end of the year party!!

First and last day of school for Camper!!
He has grown so much!! I am SOOO proud of this sweet, smart, handsome boy!!
