I've posted a few new entries tonight, so scroll down to enjoy the pictures!!
Here are a few random ones I wanted to add as well.

Micah is starting to enjoy the exosaucer! He still gets a little scared if Andrew comes put and starts playing noisily with the toys on there. I can't believe my little baby boy will be 5 months old tomorrow!!!!

I'm gonna have this crazy crew 3 days a week!! (from right) Carson, Hannah, Micah, Andrew, and Sawyer!! Five kiddos ages 5 months to 3! :)

Family picnic after church one week… we were waiting on the Krispy Kreme family opening.

Me and Andrew while at the family reunion in South Caroline. I don't even remember getting this picture taken, but I like it.

And finally…

Micah! Such a funny angle and face. :) Micah is full of life, smiles, giggles, and sweetness!! :)

Walking through the Genesis 1 exhibit. (notice Andrew's face is the only blurry thing!? That boy has the hardest time keeping still!)

In the "final Adam" movie theater… Micah was hungry!

Josh feeding a horse/zebra. Can't remember what they call it.

In the "Ark" exhibit. This was close to one of my favorite parts. You feel like you are walking through the ark construction! :)

The Tillman's have been having lots of fun this summer. We just got done having a visit with Steven and Laura. We had a blast!! :) The kids loved seeing their aunt and uncle.
I'll have to post pictures of their visit another day.

Here is a cute picture of Micah in a Gator outfit. :) Micah has also found his feet this month, and has also started eating rice cereal. He doesn't really like it. :)

Hannah and Andrew have been playing together better and better. Andrew landed a visit to the ER by getting his hand caught in the sliding van door. Thankfully nothing was broken!!
Here is a picture of the kids living it up in the ER room. The nurses brought them juice, toys, coloring pages, and even put on CARS movie for them.

Josh and I have been busy starting our new rolls in the church. I have taken over SS attendance and rolls along with a few other things. Josh has been working on music and leading it himself on Sunday nights! I am proud of him.

We have also (thanks to the help of Steven and Laura!!) re-sided our garage!! It looks SO much better now, but we have to brave the heat again and paint it. Pictures of that to come soon!! :)
