Sweet Granny is 100!

What an inspiration.  Granny just turned 100 this month.  David flew up to New Hampshire to celebrate with Granny as she rang in her big birthday. Even though she is partly blind and deaf, she does not allow that to slow down her everyday life. Her mind is still sharp, does crossword puzzles every day. Granny still writes to this day and I treasure every card she sends us with her own handwriting.
 Happy Birthday, sweet Granny.

Last Day of Preschool

My computer had been down for the past couple of weeks. With David out of town and family visiting, I was out of luck. My David is home, he fixed the computer, and I am back in business. Here is a photo of the kids on their first and last day of preschool this year. How much have they grown.

Little Triathlete

After watching Daddy at the White Lake race last month, Summer picked up some of cutest little things like wearing Daddy's number on the front of her leotard (she says she saw a lot of ladies at the race wearing "leotards" and they all had numbers on them), riding her bike around the driveway and running around the house. I love watching her from the sideline and cheering her on. 
I love my little triathlete.

The Party

We had Forrest's party late morning. His friends, Will, Quinn and Elliot came over along with their siblings for some fun play, lunch and cake. Forrest is crazy over cars so we did a car theme party. The bakery did a beautiful job of decorating the cake with a car #2. The day before, Forrest specifically requested cheese puffs as a side for the lunch, he would sign cheese then tries to fingerspell the P letter, so adorable. I was sure to get an extra bag of those faves so I would not run out of them.
Forrest LOVED the attention and had so much fun opening his presents. When he opened each of his presents, he would want to open the boxes and jump into playing with each one. So funny and so, so cute. To end the day, I made his favorite dinner - Annie's mac and cheese, cut up chicken with steamed veggies cut up all mixed up together. He ate the entire bowl and we all shared the last few pieces of the cake.
Before bed, Daddy read him the book "Little Boy". Always keep that little boy inside of you no matter how old you are. Now when we ask Forrest how old is he, he would say TWO and tries to hold his hand up to sign TWO (more like a 4 or 5) and then he would say BLOW for blowing the candles then HOT for candle wick. How sweet are the simple pleasures of a two year old. 
We sure love our little boy, Forrest.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Forrest!

Today is Forrest Logan's birthday. I can't believe my baby is 2! Summer and I came downstairs to find David and Forrest talking about their trip to the goat farm. This morning David woke up early, snatched Forrest out of his bed and headed out to Port City Java for mango smoothie and a scone (he picked it out all by himself) with him for his special day. They headed to the goat farm near our home, loaded with breakfast. They returned home with a huge smile on Forrest's face and "car" ball they picked up at Harris Teeter... this is a HUGE deal. He dies over these little balls and begs for them every time we are at the grocery store. Well, today was his lucky day and Daddy let him pick out what he wanted. This was Daddy's special way of celebrating with him before the party started later in the morning. What a good daddy!
I love, love, love being your mommy, Forrest.
Happy Birthday sweet boy! xoxo

White Lake

David completed his triathlon race at White Lake this past Sunday. He first started doing this triathlon eleven years ago... (see the first few pictures) considering how very little he trained due to the porch project taking up a lot of his free time, he did very well. This year was special as we brought both our children and they had a blast being cheerleaders on the sidelines. Now back at home, they pretend to do a mini triathlon at home, with biking one loop around the garage, running from the garage to the playground then swimming back. Summer has Daddy's number tag in a special place in her room.

Horse Back Riding

The Schultz kids let their imagination run wild. With some boots and bike helmets, they pretend to ride horses in the wild wild west on David's sailboat trailer "neck". How I love watching them play. Never a dull moment with these two children.
