Quick Nuffer Catch-up

So I've been totally ignoring the blog this month.  I don't know if I've been too lazy or too buzy- probably a combination of both.  Anyway, here's a quick catch up.
  1. The boys have been sick A LOT!  Austin has been to the doctor more since he turned 1 than Jackson had in his first 3 years of life.  We were going to the doctor a few times a week for awhile.  This is difficult for a couple reasons:  First, I'm a mom and it's hard to see my babies sick.  And second, because I am a germ-a-phobe with OCD (I don't think it gets much worse than that) and I just see germs creeping and crawling ALL OVER MY HOUSE!  The boys never passed around the same virus, thank goodness, but they kept picking up new viruses.  I'm not sure which is worse.  Anyway, as of Saturday night Austin has yet another ear infection.  I'm going to start looking into some more natural ways of keeping in the ear infections at bay like oils, vitamins, and probiotics.  So if any of you have any knowledge of these things or books that I can read about them please share all your knowledge with me.  ;)
  2. My littlest buddy still isn't walking, but he's already showing letter recognition and he'll repeat certain words randomly.  He'll take 2-3 steps then realize he's walking unassisted and fall.  It's all a mental game now.  He's not talking really, but he's great with sign language.  Next Saturday a very good friend of mine who is a sign language interpreter is starting a sign language class for kids and their parents, so Jim and I will be taking the boys to her house every Saturday.  The boys will love it, especially Big Poppa.
  3. Jackson is a very healthy 3 year old, and I know this because he is testing every last nerve I have!  I was a nanny during my undergrad and I learned that the "terrible 2's" has nothing on the "That's it!  I'm selling you on EBay 3's".  I think he just needs to be challenged more mentally, so I'm working on that.  Good news!  We finally found a pre-school that we love that's not full-time.  He'll start St Luke's Pre-school in the fall.  He's super excited and so are we!  In our house we share a car to cut on expenses, so the boys and I will be taking Jim to work M/W/F bright and early at 6am so that I have the car to take Jackson to school, but Jim and I really think it's worth it.  Plus, since I'll have the car I can sign Austin up for some Mommy and Me classes.  He'll have a blast and he'll get some one on one time with mom!
  4. Jim still really likes his job and he's doing well in school.  He made a 3.0 last semester.  I'm very proud of him.  I'm still in graduate school and I'm currently taking the hardest class I've ever had.  I can't wait till I can say this class is OVER!  Too bad I've only finished week 1 or 11.
Anyway, that's us in a nutshell, a really big nutshell, but you get the jist.


  1. We love St. Luke's! Spencer just finished his first year and we will be back in the fall for the 4 year old class. I completely understand the "I want to sell you on Ebay 3's!" We've been there too!

  2. Awesome! Jackson will be there and so will another little boy for church. Maybe they'll all be in the same class! I'm glad I'm not alone in my EBay thoughts... ;)

It's baaaaaaaaaack... The Nuffer Family Summer Camp 2018

Man, it's been awhile.  A long while.

The blog is baaaaaack! And so is the Nuffer Family Summer Camp!!!!!

The NFSC is going to be pretty different this year.  The big boys need to be challenged so much more than a few crafts and story books like when I first started the summer camp many moons ago.  With that said, I don't really know exactly what it will look like because I have to test the waters to see what interests them and what doesn't. My mom gave each of the boys a Little Passports membership, so we'll be using those in our weekly themes as well.  I have a preschooler, a second grader, and a fifth grader- needless to say, it should be interesting.  but no big deal, right?

Every day they'll spend their mornings doing some chores, spending some time outside, reading independantly, doing a little work in grade-level appropriate workbooks, doing an NFSC activity or two, and I think I'm going to teach the older boys to write in cursive. Phew!

Brian and Whitney get married!

Our family has been waiting for this day for well over a year!  My little brother, Brian, finally married Whitney a couple weeks ago.  Such a wonderful weekend!
I mean, how cute are they?!

The first night was the rehearsal, of course, but I didn't get many pictures.
I do have a fun little story, though...
Jackson was the ring bearer, and Whitney wanted him to walk arm and arm with the flower girl, Delaney.  But, he wouldn't do it.  I thought maybe it was because he didn't know her before that night, but no, that's way too simple for Jackson.  Jackson didn't want to walk down the aisle with Delaney because he thought if he walked down the (wedding) aisle with this stranger-girl, he'd be married to her!  bahahahahahahahaha!  That is hysterical!
Once we assured him that they would not be married if he walked arm and arm with this (super sweet) little girl, he was totally fine with it.
But look at their little faces.  And their little fists.  Hahahahaha!  This is t…

A Whole Lot of Random...

You guys know that my children are crazy.  And hilarious.  And random.
So here's a bunch of random moments from the Nuffer Nest.  Enjoy.
Sometimes, you just feel like Yoshi.

And sometimes, a tiny person steals my phone and takes 458 selfies that look just like this:

And sometimes, mom and grandma spend way too much time at Costco.

Other times, you smash your finger in a door and have to take a "quick" trip to urgent care. At least it wasn't broken.

And sometimes, life just gets hairy...

Other times, the Captain Underpants underwear you just got for your birthday has a cape, so you have to show it off by not wearing pants.

Sometimes, you're as cute as can be when you get a free apple at the grocery store.
(You guys, look at that little round belly- I just want to tickle and squeeze him!)

And sometimes, your brother helps you hang on when life gets tough.

Other times, they're there to give you a hug.

Sometimes, your future is so bright, you have to wear shades.
