Long time, no see

It has been a crazy month...but a great one!

The boys finished up the school year the last week of May.  Cam starts kindergarten in the fall.  Jim will be in 4th grade.  They grow so fast!

My middle brother and his family were here for a visit.  They arrived Friday, June 4th and they left early this morning.  We had a wonderful time and are sad to see them go.  We had a house full of people - my brother, his wife, their 2 children, her mother and her nephew from India, my mom and the 4 of us.  My dad was here Friday through Monday morning.

Saturday we hit First Monday (a flea market) and the farmer's market.  Then we took them to ride a horse.  Sunday we went to visit my paternal grandmother.  Monday we went to visit my maternal grandmother.  There, my uncle (mom's younger brother) threw my older son a surprise mini-birthday party (his birthday was the next day).  Tuesday we took them to the Fort Worth Zoo.  Then we came home and made a mad dash for the real birthday party.  Wednesday, we all went to the Fort Worth Stockyards.

We all wish they could have stayed longer.  My older son became fast friends with my sister-in-law's nephew from India.  They have plans to keep in touch through email.  It was good to see her mother again.  She's a lovely lady.
