Two months later

The summer was so crazy-jam-packed that I have not blogged in nearly two months.  So, lets go over what has been going on with the crazy Thomas crew....

The lady at the haircutting place gave Emma Kate bangs. Without my consent. Looking back, my reaction was slightly over-the-top. Just slightly. Now they are cute and made the summer months easier without hair-in-the-face all the time.  I guess it worked out. Hmmm.

Ashley-Sissy cam for a whole month. Emma Kate was in heaven for a whole month.  It was fun having her here.  It was also good training for when Emma Kate turns 12.  It's a whole different ballgame.

We visited with all our family.  Mikey T's brother and fiance came to town and we swam and watched fireworks and ate a lot.  We also spent time with my brother and sis in law and the many children they have produced.  I LOVE when the cousins get together. I have so many memories of playing with my gazillion cousins in the summer time.  Every time I see my children with their cousins, it takes me back many years and I smile.

Mom and I decided to go to the beach.  It was a quick trip, but we both needed to see our favorite place in the whole world, just to get us through the school year.

I turned a year older.  Mike and I celebrated our 5th anniversary. 

Ashley turned 12.

Mikey T and Unc broke away from the Mighty Mighty Raptors and started their own team, the Auburn Elite.  They entered two tournaments in a harder league.  The were runner up in the first.  The second was dangerous. Playing in Atlanta against talent they had no business playing against.  I knew it was going to be nasty, so I didn't even go. It was an overnight trip so EK and I stayed home while Mikey T and Unc took the team and Ashley to ATL.  And they won.  The. Whole. Tournament.  It was in the paper and everything. Mikey T and Unc were vindicated and I was proud.  Turns out, Mikey T and Unc are really great coaches.  Hmmm.

That is our summer in a nutshell.
And today, I feel like summer is officially over.  Emma Kate started her new preschool today.  More on the later.......
