Free comic book day

I have come to terms with the fact that I will be the sole supplier of estrogen in this house.  I have even come to terms with everyone in this house, outside of me, loves Star Wars, superheroes, and any other nerdy hobby or media out there (minus Star Trek, thank goodness, because that might have been a real deal breaker for me).  So when free comic book day came around my entire household got extremely excited, even me because it meant peace and quiet while the boys chased free comic books around the city.  Jim would often tell me how many days were left until free comic book day.

The bid day finally arrived!
Jim was so excited to dress the boys in their superhero gear- belts and capes included!
You have to admit, they are pretty cute.

It's time to go find free comics!
Yes, Austin wore the mask for the first part of the day- he was committed!

The second place they went to had all kinds of fun stuff.  They were in nerd heaven!
First there was R2D2 (I hope I got that right...?) who even made noises and moved, I believe-

And storm troopers!
I hope Jim is impressed that I know that these guys are storm troopers-

Austin was a little more hesitant of the storm troopers, but after a little bit of coxing he finally gave one a high five-

The boys had a great day with daddy.  (and I got to shower in complete peace and quiet- it was amazing!)
Later, we had to run some errands and Austin fell asleep on the way to Target- it's only a 10 minute drive, but he was worn out from a fun-filled day.

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.
