As many of you know, Conner and Mabrie are best buddies (in love and will be married upon their 30th birthdays, according to the contract that we've made with her parents!)

Unfortunately for us, Mabrie and her family have been in California for over three weeks while Mark has been working there. Conner had been making her pictures every so often since she'd been gone, so we decided to mail them to her. Carter made pictures for Allie and Cooper made a card for Mabrie too! We mailed it and waited for the news that they'd received them. Here are some pictures of their correspondence. Jenn was even nice enough to take a video of them opening their goodies and telling the boys thank you and that they missed them!

On our way to the mailbox.

Carter's turn.

And three short days later....

...there were smiles on two little girls faces.

This one is my favorite! I think she liked 'em!

Mission Accomplished!

Don’t hate me because I’m behind!

Okay, so yes...I'm behind on blogging AGAIN! My excusses are long and uninteresting, so I'll skip that part and go straight for the good stuff.

I'll start with Field Day! Cooper's field day was not what I expected, mostly because I was expecting it to be like our field days when I was a kid. Not so much anymore. Mostly, it was just random 'sports'ish games that required little skill nor brought any real compitition. There were no ribbons or awards to win, but the kids seemed to have fun none the less. The few things that were familiar were good ole' Tug of War and the Three Legged Race.

Cooper and his buddies...Jackson and Lathan.

"Betcha Can't Guess"

Conner and Carter had a very scaled down version of field day at preschool. I came to get a few pictures of them in action. It was very cute watching them race each other and be so excited to finish. They did them by class so I didn't get any of them together.

Carter anxiously waiting for his turn.

...and he's off!

The ole' egg on the spoon race!

Looks like he found a faster way!

Two year olds and Tug of War, not a good combo!

Conner's ready with his egg.

He did really well!

Then the bean bag toss...his went next to the furthest.
Running his little heart out!

Three year olds and Tug Of War worked much better!
This post is long enough...stay tuned for more updates!
