1st Day of School

Well, they are off and running.  It has finally come, the first 
day of school.  My excitement as well as theirs cannot be contained.

Here is Christian Alexander, better known as Xander to his family & friends.
He starts 1st grade today and actually has Larry's old kindergarten teacher, Mrs. McLemore.
She told Xander she graduated right with him and has moved to the first grade. I am 
not sure what she has done wrong to get 2 Roberts boys.

Here is Ms. Savannah Yuki starting 3rd grade.  She is super excited to have her
favorite teacher Ms. Kubiak.  It takes Savannah months before she starts talking
in class.  She is extremely shy.

Here is Larry Denzil III.  He is starting 2nd grade and is proud to be a big kid.
He has Mrs Snow this year.

Here are my 3 amigos.  These 3 have always been together.
I hope they will always be the best of friends.

They wanted a picture of their back packs.  I hope you all enjoy.

Happy 1st Day of School!!!

I'm so bad about only taking perfect pictures. OK I'm related to Kate on Jon and Kate plus 8. I don't let me kids get dirty but, Hunter seems to be a dirt magnet!

I am so nervous about Connor's first day of school. I know I should be tough but I get weepy just thinking about. Luckily ours doesn't start until the day after Labor day so I have some extra time with him. I asked him if he wanted to home school and he said with excitement, "you mean you can bring the school to my home???" After I explained what home school was, he looked at me like I was crazy and said, "I think I'd like to go to the real school." At least I tried!

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,…
