Ahhhh... welcome summer! Yesterday was the first "official" day of summer and I could not be more excited! Summer (to me!) equals flip flops, fluffy beach towels, the smell of Coppertone, white starfish, brightly painted toenails, and three little boys with really cute tan lines across their bottoms!
So, since summer is here, that means July 4th is right around the corner. Be sure you see this insanely cute idea from TomKat Studio. This has to be the cutest July 4th treat I have ever seen!

If you happen to be "in the market" for Crocs for your little ones, check out Zulily today! They have a great deal going on some kids styles of Crocs. And, if you are not familiar with Zulily, you should check it out once and awhile. It is similar to a Gilt.com or Overstock.com site. They have sales that feature certain (usually upscale) vendors and the deals only last a certain amount of time.
The Croc sale ends Monday!

Friday was a very special day in our house.... preschool graduation day for Bryson! It is hard for me to believe that Bryson will start kindergarten in August. I am sure I would not be handling this so well if I did not have one more "baby" to go through preschool! (So I am sure when Noah graduates preschool my post will be very different!)
It was such a bright sunny, albeit HOT, day for a happy graduation ceremony. Bryson was very blessed to share his day with his "Gommy" and Grandaddy and his Aunt Laura and cousins! To be surrounded by family and friends makes all events so much more special! I wondered how Bryson would do during the ceremony. The last time he sang in front of an audience he got a bit of stage fright. But not this time! I think he was so proud of himself and felt so confident wearing his cap and gown and being "a big boy" with his friends! His preschool did an excellent job of putting together a very sweet little program for all of us!
Congratulations Bryson.... Mommy and Daddy are very proud of you!

Bryson is almost finished with his third soccer season. Last weekend he scored his very first goal... ever! I wish I could explain or could have captured on film how excited he was! Truly heartwarming!
This weekend is his last game of the season. Go Orange Chihuahuas! (Yes.... that is their team name!)
Last weekend our local museum in Durham, the Museum of Life and Science, offered a really cool event. They were doing a bug hunt in the dark after hours with black lights and "bug experts" to give bug info. It sounded like so much fun. However, when I called to get out tickets, they were already sold out. Not happy!
So, after hubby and I discussed it, we decided we would just "create" our own bug hunt in the dark at home. We turned on our outside flood lights to attract all the creatures, picked up our flash lights, and headed outside! The kids thought it was one of the coolest things we have ever done! We spotted spiders, beetles (again, Noah's favorite!), moths, and the moon!!!
Two things about this.... one, call the museum early next year for tickets! And, two, kids really can have so much in their own backyard!
