August 17 marks 40 years that my parents have been married! For their anniversary my Dad wanted to surprise mom with a picture of all their kids and grandkids. This is a little tricky to do when we live in 3 separate states and 2 continents so we did the next best thing and decided to photoshop a picture of all of us together :) Chris took a mental break in the middle of his photoshop fun and put us in lots of different places. I think they're worth sharing......
and the basic final product. Mom and Dad were pretty happy with it so that's all that matters!
August means cramming in as many pool days as we can before the weather cools off too much!
I love how Creed's brain works. He is definitely an independent thinker! In the top picture he has built a campfire and is roasting marshmallows over the fire. And the bottom pic was taken the day after Christopher fell off the swing set and was knocked unconscious. Creed was really worried that he would fall somewhere and have to go to the hospital too so he chose to wear a helmet all day long :)
Charis and Christopher started Preschool at First Presbyterian Church. Christopher in the 2 year old class and Charis in the 3's. Charis LOVES preschool. Christopher, not so much...
We took a day and went to the Big Discovery Place in downtown Charlotte. The kids got to pet a snake and Cadence got to be a part of a science experiment so overall it was a really fun day!
and this is what the first day of Homeschooling looks like for the Andersens!
The littles doing videos for K4 and Cadence just doing bookwork for 3rd Grade.
We took our yearly youth group afternoon to have Day at the Lake where a family is gracious enough to provide a fun evening on the lake with boats, jet skis, and this year it included kayaks and paddle boards which were also super fun for our kids!
So, that's August in a nutshell....Come on September!
