Connor is playing soccer for the 2nd time. He really loves playing. It is usually the first sport he wants to play then softball. He had a game on Saturday and it is fun to watch these boys run all over the field. They all have a great time you can tell. The boys did very well since it was pretty hot out. Here are a few shots of our soccer star!

Proud Aunt Nise!

Fun at the Fair

We went to the Spokane Interstate Fair last night and had so much fun. We ate some good fair food. Corn dogs, elephant ears, cotton candy and shaved ice. Connor decided to do the tractor pull for the first time and had fun. All the kids got a ribbon at the end even if they didn't come in first. Ryan was very sad he couldn't do it also but you had to be 4. They felt bad for him so they let him ride on one. He even got a ribbon. He was thrilled! After that we let the boys go on the rides. They had so much fun. This was the first time we have gone to the fair since Ryan was 2 weeks old. They both loved all the rides and rode them tons. It was getting cold so we decided to go walk around in some of buildings for a while. When we warmed up we rode some more rides and then headed home. We also stopped to see horses, goats and some sheep. I think next year we will be heading back.

1st day of school

Today Connor started the 3rd grade. I can't believe it! Where has the time gone. He was so excited this year to start school. He is going to a new school this year and I thought he would be a little nervous but he seemed really excited this morning. When I picked him up after school he told me he had a great day. He made a new friend and really likes his new teacher. So here is to the start of a new year. I hope it goes smoothly and Connor has a lot of fun and learns alot.

The End of Summer

So it is the end of summer and school starts this Wednesday. I can't believe it! Where did it go? Connor starts his new school and is going into the 3rd grade. So crazy! Ryan turned 3 last week. We had a fun time at the party. He was so excited to have a birthday. He has been talking about it for weeks. I ended up having everyone over for a BBQ and I made cupcakes for him. He loved it all. He is a very active little guy and is willing to try just about anything. He has such an easygoing, funny personality. Connor is just as active but he tends to be a little more reserved and serious. (very much like his father)
Here are some pics from the party:

Other than having a quiet summer, we have been doing well. I am going to dialysis 3x a week and that is going well. We are finally in a routine that is working well for us. Shannon just finished a movie and is busy working on cars to fill in until the next one starts in a few weeks. MOPS has started for the year and we have our first meeting this Friday. Connor will be starting soccer in a couple of weeks and has his first game on the 18th. He is very excited. Shannon and I will celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary on the 19th of September. Wow! I can't believe I have been married for so long. I am looking forward to having a very busy year.
Even though we haven't really done a lot we have had a good time. I love to spend time with my boys. The are so awesome!!
Here are some pics from over the summer:

Now onto Fall and all the fun stuff that goes along with that. We always go to the pumpkin patch and to Manito Park for a photo shoot. I love Fall and all that goes along with it!
