Summer Fun 2

 
We have had a great June, lots of fun and lots of camps for the boys.  July is usually a calmer month for us.
 
But first, here's the last couple of weeks for us.
 
I took the boys and their friends, a whole carload, to the indoor Trampoline Park in Indy one day.  We had a window between band camp for all of the kids and community theater play practice for two - they're doing The Sound of Music this summer!
 
But, off we went.  Thomas took this iPad photo of the craziness on the way up.
 
Brennan and his friends Claire and Grace, ready to jump!

This place was soo much fun!  Here's Brennan in the dodgeball area - that's Claire and Grace up front with the balls.

 They were EXHAUSTED afterwards.  They had a really good time, and I did too. 
 
We celebrated Flag Day, and the first day of summer with some fun red, white, and blue stuff.
 
 
I joined the Service League one day for resume review - we lead the Youth Leadership scholarship program.  Lots of amazing students in this community.
 
 I took Trevor and Thomas out for a round of golf one day.
 
The geese enjoy golfing too.  They were all around a few of the holes.

 
 The Girlfriend Ride was earlier this month.  I did the 50K with friends.  Our team won a prestigious team prize.  It was a fun day, and we raised a lot of money for the domestic violence shelter in town.
 
 We enjoyed watching some Mississippi State baseball at the College World Series (on tv of course).
David and Brennan catching the game, and checking the stocks at the same time.
 
The three week band camp culminated with a big concert downtown. 
We stopped to get some gelato between haircuts and the concert.

Talking with the girl next to him, ready for the concert.  They played a bunch of songs.  I was so proud of them - after their introductions to the instruments - they were really good!

 
Here are Thomas and other junior high students who served as assistants to the 6th grade class.  While he enjoyed his own 8th grade band camp, I think he liked helping the new 6th grade trumpet players even more!

That same week Brennan went to the Philharmonic's strings camp at Ceraland.
He chose violin, and had a great time learning about strings instruments, and swimming and playing putt-putt in the afternoons.  Here he is on Day 1 with his friend Katie.

 
The Friday night strings concert at the outdoor amphitheater was really good.
You won't see Brennan in this group photo - he had to run to the facilities before the concert got underway :)
 
 
Brennan's class playing 3 songs.

 
God love him. 

 
 While Brennan was in all-day camp, Thomas and I got to enjoy some one-on-one time.
We met up with Dad for lunch at Zaharako's.
 
 
I took Thomas to play golf with his friend Luke - they have the same birthday!



 
We also pet sit Oberon the very large kitty cat last week.  The boys and I had a good time walking over to his house to feed him, and play with him.  He especially loves the little laser pointer.  We enjoyed our time with Obie.
 
And this week the boys have been at church camp - hiking, swimming, and having a wonderful time I hope.  We get to pick them up in a few hours.  I can't wait!
 
But while they've been out, David and I have enjoyed a night out, having friends over several times, David hosted poker night, and I haven't done laundry once!
 
Hope you're having a great summer!

Your kids have grown so much....and I can tell they're having a fantastic summer!

We're spending the week at the lake (we'll leave tomorrow) and I hope it doesn't rain the whole time...we've had so much rain this summer!
