Dozer Day

September 14th, 2009 by matt

We loaded the minivan with boys and attended Dozer Day again this year.  Ben’s friend Tristen had a sleepover the night before, so those two jokers were in the back.  Of course Max was in his carseat, and we stopped to pick up Andy and Anderson.  Full load!  Here is a picture of the boys playing in the dirt, watching a bulldozer.

After a ride in a dump truck and some lunch, the boys played in the sand pit.  With the machinery, of course.

The weather was absolutely perfect, we all got some sun.  Once nap time arrived, however, we knew it was time to leave.  Max and Anderson fell alseep in the car.  Hopefully it works out where we can do it all again next year.

Back to School

Ben is now in the third grade and Grace is in the second grade.  I remember those years of my life!  They both are loving school, their new teachers and new classmates.  Ben is working hard on his cursive and being a good mentor to Grace, who is starting cursive this fall.

Max misses the kids during the day but also enjoys some freedom from harassment from the older duo.  Max gets very excited when he hears the bus!  I imagine it won’t be long before he’ll want to go to school, too.
