Our little boy is not so little today – he looks like a little man and is MUCH larger than the average 2 yr old – he is OFF the chart in height (108th percentile) and 80th percentile in weight, according to his 2 year check-up. We celebrated a little at home and then left that evening to go to Buck Creek State Park with Kirk’s family at the cabins there. Had a great time but he ended up getting a really croupy cough there and found out the day we got home, at the 2 year check-up, that he also had an ear infection. You can see it in his eyes that he is not feeling so well – poor guy! They also had a great beach there and we did a girl’s craft day where we all modified basic picture frames into our own little pieces of art. Fun!

Bradley graduated from Epiphany Lutheran Preschool – can’t believe preschool is over. He is so self-conscious with weird things so he would NOT wear his cap. He just held it through the ceremony and he wouldn’t sing the songs they had practiced. Needless to say, I am happy I wasn’t trying to video tape it!
We just found out he got into the young 5’s program at Centerville’s Primary Village South. It is a beautiful school and will be 4 yrs old this fall. The have a program specifically suited to those summer babies who would be the youngest in the class if they had started kindergarten. We are thrilled they had a spot because he actually got into the regular kindergarten program but we were quite certain we would repeat a 2nd year because of his age so I discussed this with the principal who is super nice and she called me when an opening became available for the young 5’s – saves us making the call next year. He will still ride on the bus and go for a 1/2 day just like he would be in kindergarten but the ration is about 16 students vs. 21-22 that would be in regular kindergarten. Now he will continue on with kindergarten the following year and then 1st grade so he will be at that school for 3 years instead of 2. We are really happy about that.

We gave our first real craft show a try! It was a 2 day event – very hot the second day! We sold some stuff but not as much as we had hoped. Still looking for the perfect crowd for our taste! Maybe we are the only ones who like what we make – if we don’t find a better venue, we feel we are set for teacher gifts for the rest of our kids’ school careers! Here is a look at our little boutique-y booth.

Okay, not so scary in their monster outfits, but awfully cute! The mommies decided to buy them matching pajamas so one day when they were here, we got them ready for bed and wanted to try a photo shoot. As you can see, cousin Abram was a little too tired for it and had a few tears in his eyes! Still cute!

We love Hilton Head – it is so nice to go there and relax – we bike ride all over the island. We enjoyed the beach this year because it was later in the year so it was actually warm and we saw lots of dolphins. We took a sunset/dolphin cruise on a large catamaran and that was great too! There were even turtles so used to people that they came right up the bank of the creek to get crackers from us- I know we shouldn’t have done it but our neighbors started it!
