Old Friends

 One of the neighbors that Brian grew up next door to organizes a family get together at our pool almost every summer.  This year all her kids were in town celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary!  Of course there are no pictures of the adults, but these pictures were really funny to take.  

Few more first day of school pics

 The school had this big "welcome to school" arch this year and so I snapped a picture of each kid in it on their first day.  Landon let me walk him to his class the first day (I told him it wasn't an option actually) but after that he has walked himself over to the 345 building.  Yesterday I turned around for a quick second and he ran off without saying goodbye.  I am so glad he's separating as he should, but its a strange change.
Adler had a great first day too, though he said it was too short (the K12 classes have half days the first week).  After Kindergarten, these kids are ready to be back full time.

1st of 1st

Adler starts first grade today. (LT started yesterday - I assume the school mixes it up just so parents don't get complacent). I grabbed a couple of obligatory pictures of the big guys as they retuned from a PokeStop visit before leaving for school this morning.

#2's 1st NFL game

Adler got to go to his first NFL game last night thanks to Uncle Steve, his season tickets, and season ticket holders being forced to buy preseason games. He was a little scared at first when we were walking to the seats. And I don't blame him, the hight and steepness of the stairs in the top level can be rather intimidating. But as you can see from the picture above of him sliding down the railing as we went to get another round of junky stadium food, he got over that fear pretty quick.
