Today is little Trouper's 3rd birthday! What a big guy! He is staying with Noni this week because his daycare is closed. He started off his morning with lots of kisses and then got No-nuts (donuts) on the way to Noni's. Noni and Troupe have spent the day at the Lions Junction park. I am sure they are having fun.

Our weekends are jammed packed. Most of it we do to ourselves. This weekend started with Chris having a softball tournament. We loaded up with our coolers and spent much of the day at the fields. Between games our neighbors and ourselves hosted an impromptu BBQ for the softball guys who lived too far away to go home between games. It was fun. After the games we made a B-line to our pool. We all needed it. We swam and swam.
Our pool time was cut short because we had another party to attend for Bryson's baseball team. We had a great time. Pool party and cookout. We had the whole team sign baseball's and each player got one. It will be very special for Bryson. Needless to say we all slept good Saturday night.
Sunday we headed out to Dead Fish Grill in Belton. We sat outside overlooking the lake. It was a little hot but it was beautiful. We had a great time. Afterwards we headed, yet again to our pool. Then to yet another party for our neighbors birthday. Like I said our weekends are jam packed but it is all about fun and family. These are the times I love. Now if we would only get rid of Mondays.

Summer is here. Well not technically but it might as well be with the heat and kids being out of school. We got a pool, a little 12 foot metal frame, and we have been in it every day. We love it, I love it. I need it.
Friday was Bryson's first day out of school. He went with Pop to work. He had a great time. The got a free slurpee and fixed the go cart. Then he got to ride around on his go cart.. Until it broke again. Oh well, guess he will have to go back to work with Pop again.
Today is the another first for Bryson. His first day at BCYC (a boys and girls club in Belton). I have known for a while he was going to be going but today after I dropped him off I was really sad. I told Chris I hated taking him there. I want my son to be home having fun in the summer. Not at camps. I wish there were other arrangements. I wish I was home with him. Not to say that there is anything wrong with BCYC, just to say I want him home. When 3:30 came and went and I didn't get my daily phone call from him like I usually do when he gets home from school another wave of sadness hit. I miss my 3:30 phone call with my oldest. The only other year that he has had to go to a summer program was the summer Troupe was born. And that was not real because he ended up going everywhere BUT there because of all the drama with Troupe being in the hospital. Every other summer vacation he has been home. Be it when Chris and I ran our craft show business, or when Chris worked nights.
I always think I am a strong momma. Not too clingy. But then I send my baby to summer rec centers and in ruins my whole day. I can't wait to go get him. Maybe he missed me too. I guess I hope not because I want him to have a happy summer.
