Justin's first day of Kindergarten!!

Justin started Kindergarten on August 25th! It was a happy day!! Here's the table he started out at with more boys than girls on it...however I just went to Orientation tonight and he was moved and sits by a girl. That would explain the I hate sitting by girls comment for the past week:-)

Pointing to his name on the door.
That morning getting ready to walk to school. He was so excited. He makes his own lunch every morning and he has adding vacuming to his chore chart. He is getting so big and I'm so proud of him! He's been waiting for Kindergarten for a year now. Ever since his 2 cousins, Porter and Preston starting last year it's been killing him not going to.

Case Turns 2!!

Case turned 2 on August 7th!! We were totally lame and didn't do any kind of a "party" He got some geo trax's and a Jr. Tag Reader with all his birthday money.
Justin was really disappointed that I didn't make a cake and the one that I bought was too small. And someone pointed out on Facebook when I posted this picture there that Case needs his own "Special Day" Plate! So Nana Kern needs to work on that since she got Justin one:-)
Loren had a day off that week so we went to the Transportation Museum in Salisbury, NC and rode a train and saw lots of old cars, trains, and buses.

I really do have 3 handsome boys don't I?

Loren's Race

I went to St. Loius Race with my brother Ben. He were awake for over 24 hours that trip but it was worth it! We left at 7am and drove 5 hours there to hang out all day for qualifying and then the race that night. Here's Loren getting ready for the race to start. We're at the pit box already and he is weighing the gas cans. They hold around 11 or 12 gallons and weigh 85 pounds. He'll wiegh them before and after a pit stop.
Me and Loren during the race hanging out waiting for a pit stop. I got to wear some headphones and listen to the driver, crew chief, and spotter. It's the only way to watch a race!
Just hanging around waiting for something to do.

Man he's sexy:-)...good thing he doesn't read this blog or he'd kill me for saying that:-)

This is a video of one of his pit stops. He doesn't go over the wall when the car gets there. He's the one squatting down with his butt to you:-)

Russell Sims Aquatic Center in Bowling Green, KY

We went to TN this summer for 4 weeks. While there a bunch of us went to the Aquatic Center in Bowling Green, KY. It's a great splash pad for younger kids! Justin with 3 of his cousins, Porter, Preston, & Gavin. He had so much fun playing with this boys all summer!
Liz and Kayea (if I spelled her name wrong don't yell at me:-)
Me and the boys

Kaleb and the back half of Preston

Gavin being silly

This little girl totally rules her world with that look!

Baby Emmett and his fat foot

Justin again. Seriously this place is great for kids! We had a blast!!


June 22nd was our 7 year Anniversary. We went out to dinner and that was about it. Not super exciting. I did get an excuse to dress up and actually do my hair into something besides a pony tail.
This is Justin and his friend Nicholas. He is out next door neighbor. Thank goodness for this kids this summer! He entertained Justin alot!! They both started Kindergarten together too...by the way...this bike is so old!!! It came from our barn in TN and Justin was washing it off. He can ride it though and that saved about $80 for a bigger bike.

Of course Case had to wash his bike too!
Justin was sent to Time Out and this is what I found 10 minutes later!

Hello...Hello... Is this thing on?

So this is a marathon post and I don't care enough to arrange photos in any kind of order. Sorry!! I'm trying to play catch up since May I think! Man I've been bad...sorry:-)
If I can remember that far back...My inlaws came to visit in May. FIL was here for 2 weeks while my MIL came out for 5 of those days. We did lots and had so much fun!
Me and the boys at the Asheboro, NC Zoo. It's a great zoo and we had a great day seeing all the animals.
Another day we went to the Natural Science Center in Greensboro, NC. Loren actually had the day off.. This is Mike my FIL...you can see why Loren never takes a seriously picture. Neither one of them are capable of being serious!

Also at the Science Center. This place totally rocks. They have an outdoor animail exhibit with Tigers, Monkeys, Meerkats, Anteaters, Petting Zoo...and many more. You are so close to all of these animales I think it's much better than the zoo plus not as much walking.

Me and the boys took my In Laws Strawberry picking. It's my favorite thing to do every May.

Case hates Strawberries, I think the texture gets to him. But he loves pulling off all the green ones!

The best part of this Farm was the Tractor ride to the Strawberry field. Case loves him some tractors!

Ok-back to the Zoo now...They have this great place for the kids to play at. Loved how this picture turned out!

Justin is just not capable of looking at the camera! I don't know what to do about it. I'll say "Look at the camera" and all he'll do is turn his head off to it and then look off. Drives me crazy!

My In Laws again with the boys at the Zoo.

We took Mike to see Loren's work one day and show off all the cool NASCAR stuff. He was pretty impressed with the set up there.
Papa Kern is so good with the boys. Case and Justin loved having him here for so long. Even if he was wore out by the time he left!

Case just being cute!

Here's a picture on Mother's Day before we went to church.
So I think I got all of May. On the June, July, and August...stay tuned...
