Friends, fish, and fun!

Jackson's bestie at school is a little girl named Emily.  She is the adorable friend that sent Jackson a get well picture in the mail when he missed school.  So so so cute!!  Today we met Emily and her brother, Jacob, at the Science Spectrum for a fun playdate before school starts on Wednesday.

First, we started with the bubbles, of course, they are Jackson's favorite.  I didn't get a picture of it, but Emily and Jackson were holding hands as they ran to the bubbles.  love.

Next, we headed downstairs for some fishy fun!  Here are all the kiddos checking out Dory, Nemo, and Marlin.

I think this is adorable because everyone was looking at Emily, she must have said something VERY important.

Next we all crowded into a boat.  I couldn't get everyone to look and smile at the same time.  I don't know how big families take family pictures.  boggles. my. mind.

Then the littlest boys took a minute to look at the snakes.

ALL the boys checking out the fish.  Jackson was telling the little boys the story of Nemo and pointing out his dad, Marlin.

Next, we headed to the ginormous teeth.  Everyone hung out in the big mouth...

While Austin brushed up on how to clean teeth.  "Brushed up"- I am hilarious!  ...even if I am the only one who appreciates my English humor.  

Next, we went back upstairs for some preschool room adventures!  Emily and Jackson played in the grocery store.  The conversation went a little something like this-
Jackson:  Emily, it's time to pay for the food!
Emily:  No!!  I'm still shopping!!
That sounds about right.  Women love to shop.  Men love to get out asap.

Then Austin discovered he could see his brother through the window of the Veterinary room he was playing in.  He was so excited about this discovery!

Ball goes in...

Ball comes out.

We had such a good time with Emily, Jacob, and their mom, Amelia.  I've known Amelia for years, but we lost touch, so I'm so glad that Jackson and Emily are in the same class this year so we could all be friends (again).  Thank you, Emily, Jacob, and Amelia!!

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.
