Spring Break 2015!

Spring Break this was a lot of fun!  And soooo needed!  It was wonderful to sleep in until 7-7:30 every morning.  So so wonderful!  But there's something to be said about a schedule and routine.  I get so much more accomplished when I have to get the boys up and ready so Jackson can get to school on time.  Plus, we get to spend the morning with Jim when we all get up early. ...but sleeping in a little was so nice.

Here's some of the fun we had during our spring break:

Monday was kind of a loss because the boys were acting a little crazy and I was very tempted to sell them all to the highest bidder on Ebay, so we won't talk anymore about Monday...

Tuesday:
First, it was St Patrick's Day.  The boys were so stoked for St Patrick's day for the chance to pinch people who weren't wearing green.  They're a sadistic bunch.


The Science Spectrum!
The boys hadn't been in awhile, so we let them loose to play and explore.



I completely forgot that they have a little area set aside for little crawlers until the last 20 minutes or so that we were in the preschool area.  Harrison LOVED all the fun stuff at his level.


Wednesday:
Happy Birthday, Austin!  Wednesday we celebrated Austin's birthday and the boys spent the night at grandma's. See Austin's 4th birthday here.

One of Austin's gifts was a little Mickey piano that came with some books.  However, Harrison has decided that the piano is his and often finds the piano and takes it over.



Thursday:
Thursday was a beautiful day!  It was a perfect day for the park!
First, the boys fed the ducks, but apparently the ducks were well fed during spring break because they weren't very hungry.  They kind of ignored us.


It was a big day for Harrison because he got to swing for the first time.  He is the first of my boys not to freak out on the swings for the first time!  He loved that swing!  He might be my first brave child yet.



After playing on this slide for awhile, Austin's hair got a bit static-y.  So cute!


Friday:
Friday was a good day for a craft.  The boys made these cute little bunnies.


Spring Break 2015 was relaxing and fun!  It was a nice little stay-cation.

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?
Riiiiiiiiiight.

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.
