Playing catch up- The May episode

** Warning!! You will be sick of my family after looking at this post due to the amount of pictures!
May has been off the meter as far as busy goes. Here are just a few of the things the Blaine's have been up to.
We have been to our nephew's pre school graduation. Here's the little scholar in his cap and gown.
By looking a that face you would never know he was voted to have the best sense of humor would you?
We have been on field trips to the library for story time. This day was all about pirates, can you tell?
Following story time there was a walk down to the park for some play time. It was a beautiful day!! A#3 had so much fun.
We have been to Camp Skeeter with a bunch of 3rd graders. Man what a day! I only stayed for 4 hours and I was exhausted. A#2 had 4 more hours after that and she was whooped when she got home. They played volleyball,basketball, kickball (which was my assigned station), did tons of relays, made s'mores and lots of other fun things.
This is just a few of the 3rd graders. They were waiting so patiently for things to begin.

Here she is waiting in line to play kick ball. I was so excited that I got to work here. Growing up, kick ball was one of my favorite things to play!!
Go A#2!! What a kick!!
Out of all the things the kids got to do, picking up the little frogs seemed to be on the top of every one's list. They were EVERYWHERE!!!!!!
This was the strangest thing. I mean they were EVERYWHERE!!
A#2 and one of her best friends.
Me and A#2.
Somewhere in May A#2 had her Brownie ceremony and bridged up to be a Junior Girl Scout. They have the very best troop of girls and their leaders are FANTASTIC!!
The whole gang.
On the same day as the Brownie ceremony we had a baby shower for my sister. Please continue to lift them up in prayer. We are waiting to get an update on baby Lily this week to see is she is doing any better and to see what the surgery will involve when she is born. My sister really needs prayer!
We were blessed enough to have some family come and visit. Hubby worked hard on the grilling while they were here. Hubby has an uncle that is younger than he is and they are fairly close. They are A LOT alike! They are currently on a cross country trek with 2 of their boys and we were one of their first stops. They had not been to C'burg since hubby and I got married... 20 years ago! WE see them several times a year when we go to NoVa to visit the in-laws so it was nice to have them here for a change. We did absolutely nothing but visit and eat! The kids stayed in the pool all day while we laughed and had so much fun.
Oh yeah and there was the jumping rope. A#2 will always find time for that. Hubby and uncle Drew even jumped for awhile.
The kiddos on Sunday morning before they hit the road again. Pray for them on their journey. I think they are currently in Arizona.
I think his uncle misses him!
And then we have had a birthday. A#2 turned 9!! She had a few of her friends over to swim and party. It's so fun to listen to little girls conversations.
A#2 and one of her friends diving for rings.
Every girl needs polish and lip gloss!
Enough sidewalk chalk to last her a year! She loved it!!
A#3 was checking out her sister's loot.
A pool full of girls.
Whose bright idea was the noise makers?
And the next day A#2 had her cousins over for her birthday.
The 5 of them.
Every girl loves bling!
But judging by the look on her face, her favorite thing was her new basketball goal. Yep, her Daddy was proud.
And then we have had A#3's pre shcool program. They did such a good job. Here they are saying the pledge of allegiance.
Waiting so patiently.
God is so good. He answers prayer.
In rainbow town the green people read their bibles.

She really had a good year.
Even I had a good pre school year and got a treat from Miss Sarah.
Well I warned you!! Are you sick of us yet? And to think, the summer has only just begun.
