Xander's Kindergarten graduation

Well, our family celebrated another milestone today.  Xander has graduated from kindergarten. Look out class of 2020.   Next school year I will have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grader all in the same school.  Everyone there knows me really well because of Savannah and Larry.  I am always there.
Xander had a beautiful kindergarten graduation.  Very cute.  These teachers work so hard at teaching the children as well as putting on a nice presentation for the parents.  Friday will be the first day of summer vacation.  I cannot wait!  With daylight savings, it is hard putting my kids to bed which means it is difficult waking them up.  Not to mention having to make breakfast and lunch for 3 kids before 7.  It is quite a task.  I am looking forward to a small break.  Of course they will all be home and in my hair.  We will see how this all works.

Now onto our fort.  Larry Denzil managed to get 2 walls and the slide up on saturday.  Some of you may be thinking that is it, but when you consider this is a 1 man show and he has put maybe 10hours into this project, it is not bad.  He has gotten a lot done.  Our evenings are shot with me going to the gym and him going to the pool with the kids.  All we have is saturday mornings really.  Maybe an occasional friday evening.  He is not sure how to do the swing set portion yet. I hope you enjoy what we have thus far.  I also hope all you gals are enjoying Kentucky.  I do wish we could be there and see you all.  It is just not a convenient time for us.

Wow, I am really impressed with the fort. How about coming over to OH and making my boys one? Hee hee.

Seriously, though, it looks awesome. What lucky kids.

A Young Man Turns 9

It is so hard to believe that my oldest boy turned 9 on Dec 30th. 9 years! Wow. We began our journey with little Larry at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD. My 17 week ultrasound had shown that I was carrying twins in which 1 twin had died just the week before. It was such devastating news. I remember lying there thinking do such things happen. The poor OB cried along with us. He honestly was not sure what the outcome would be for the living twin because it appeared the 2 babies shared a sac. Not only did they share a sac, but it also appeared the 2 might even be conjoined at the abdomen. Of course I went to a specialist who was able to determine the "syndrome." I really HATE that word. But my baby had what is known as OEIS Syndrome. Oomphalocoele, Exstrophy, Imperforate Anus, Spina Bifida. Wow. What is this and do such things really exist? Well, the specialist really only wanted to help us out in 1 way, abortion. He felt this child would never live a normal life. And yet he had never…

Beach Blanket Bingo

Last week we packed our bags and headed for Hilton Head Island. We had never been there before and heard rave reviews from quite a few friends.  Being just 5 hours from our house, how could we not look into it. Such a love affair between father and daughter. These two absolutely adore one another. My fearless Ethan.  He scared me too death because he was always out far from the beach and alone. He had absolutely no fear and was a pro on that little boogie board. Funny story, on our first day there,  Ethan had gotten out a little far and was alone so Larry Denzil went out to join him. Behind Ethan, Larry saw a fin peer up out of the water  in reaching distance and pulled Ethan to him. When he turned toward the shore, it was just a dolphin.  Whew!   I absolutely love this picture.  Ethan just sat in the shallow pool of water and did what looked like synchronized swimming.
Xander and Larry both boogie boardin' fools. Larry tried to hit dad up for a surf board. What was he thinking?  I can tell teen years …

One Last Summer Hurrah

Well, our saturday got off to a rocky start, but in the end, I think we all enjoyed ourselves.  We started the morning off by running a few quick errands.  On our way home, we stopped at the local Krispy Kreme and went to Carrier Park for breakfast.  While at the park, Larry and the kids did a little exploring and I found this neat tree.  Each kid was super excited to climb up and have their picture taken.  Xander was the first.  He had absolutely no fear and climbed up fairly high.  He was much higher than any other child.

This is my favorite picture of little Larry.  He just looks like such a man here.  He is really good at posing for shots too.  Can you tell I take hundreds of pictures of the kids because they instinctively know just how to pose.

We placed Ruby and Ethan up in the tree.  Both of them wanted down as soon as they were up. Ethan said he was too high.

Here is my beautiful Savannah.  She is growing so fast.

Ruby loved the tree once Daddy was in it with her. As a matter of fact,…
