catch up again!

So, I not mentioning any names....but someone has been horrible about posting on this blog!  And one other thing...someone has been horrible at taking pictures this summer....period!  So here is my next attemp to try to sum up what we Wheelers have been up to.  These will totally all be out of order, but hey, some disorderly pictures are better than none right?

So this summer was very hot here.  This was a couple pictures I got of Sam and Andrew playing on the slip n' slide in the front yard.

 I thought they had a lot of fun, but his face kinda looks a little scared!   He did have fun though.
 Ahh, and here we have my littlest Andy on his first day of Kindergarten!  I can't believe my youngest is gone all day.  Lately it feels like there is a little hole in my heart.  I actually feel kind of lonely during the day.  I look around my empty house and hear....nothing.  Oh boy is this what I have to look forward to when I'm older?  Is this what empty nesters feel like?  I'm not saying I haven't enjoyed some down time....and actually the first few days I had all to myself were wonderful, but now I feel a void in my life...  It definately makes me very grateful for my kids.  They are what make life worth living!  They are what brings the spice to life.  I feel so blessed to have these three beautiful children.
 Here is my beautiful Ali, We took a small camping trip to the Poudre River Canyon.  It only ended up being one night, but to me one night in the mountains is worth a month in the city!  It makes you feel so alive!  I love her beautiful smile!
 And here is our little character!  He is acting so crazy lately, so full of life and spunk!

 This was the first time Jeff gave Sam the fly fishing rod and just let him go after it.  Sam was in heaven for a long time....until he fell on his bum and scraped up his knee a little, then he informed me he was never fishing again!   I laughed, only because I know Sam, and two minutes after he stopped crying he was asking when he could go fishing again.

 Sam ...learning from the best!
 This was Ali and Sam's first day of school.  They attend a different  school than Andy so they had different starting dates.
This fall Sam is on a soccer team.  He loves any sport, but assured me that his favorite is baseball.  He also wasn't going to do football because they only do flag football for boys his age and he informed me that, that was stupid and if he couldn't tackle, then he wasn't going to play!  So soccer was his next choice.  He's the one in a blue shirt with red socks.

 Here he is with the red jersey taking a turn at goalie.

Jeff took the kids out to breakfast one morning and let me go for a run.  The kids thought it was a great treat.
