Sawyer's first day of pre school

I can't believe it! Sawyer has started pre-school!!!! Yes I said PRE-SCHOOL!!!! You always hear people say they grow up so fast. Well, I'm now one of those people! I can't believe how fast he has grown up. He wants to pick out his own clothes, put on his shoes, brush his hair, it's crazy. It makes me so sad to see him grow up so fast, but so excited to see what he has in store for us. He is such a smart, talented, funny, and sweet boy. I know he is going to follow in the footsteps of his dad and brothers and leave a mark everywhere he goes. From friends, to school, to sports, to family and love. He is such a sweet boy. I can't wait to see what he has in store for us. We love you Sawyer! Congratulations on starting pre-school!!!
He started off the morning with a healthy breakfast, apples, oatmeal and yogurt. Delicious! He will definitely have energy to get him through his first day!
He was so excited to go to school. He loves to wear his back pack!

What a goof!

This was taken on picture day! Isn't he adorable! I was so excited for him to have his first school pictures. I love looking back at my old pictures. Hopefully when he gets older he won't ask me why I made him wear that shirt. I love the shirt he has on. Jake bought it for him in Hawaii!
Apparently he was nervous to take the school picture. He was all smiles before we left but would have nothing to do with it at the important time. Isn't that how it usually works!

Sawyer, Rachel, Tatti, Brecklyn and Xander. These are all the kids in the class. It's a perfect group of kids. They all get along, the parents all get along, it's the perfect pre-school group. I couldn't be happier.
Well Tatti, Xander and Brecklyn look adorable! It appears like Sawyer is making a fish face. Classic!
For the single shots, he still wouldn't lighten up. He's usually pretty good about smiling for the camera. This was definitely not his best day. That's OK! He is still my handsome boy!!! Every picture is a good one to me!
It looks like he almost let the smile out! He is such a goofball!
Sawyer, I want you know how much your mom and dad love you! You have been such an amazing addition to our family! I can't believe you have already started pre-school! You are such a smart, caring, loving, funny, passionate and sensitive little boy. I hope you continue to grow into the amazing boy we know you are. We love you so much! Have fun in your first year of PRE-SCHOOL!!!!

Jake and Carolyn's Wedding

Jake and Carolyn decided to have a small wedding in Maui at the end of August. We are all so excited for them to get married. Jake has choosen such a wonderful life long partner. You can see how much they love each other and how genuine their love is for each other. We were so glad to be a part of this wonderful celebration. This was such a beautiful wedding. Their closest friends and family were all there and that's just what they wanted. Congratulations to you both! We are so excited for you and love you both very much.

Josh was having a heart to heart with his little brother before the wedding. It's always nice to have the support of your brothers and sisters before the wedding. Josh is one of Jake's best friends also, so it only seemed fitting that they have one last talk before the ceremony.

Mark and I just before the wedding. Since we work in our sweats, it isn't very often that we get dressed up. I'm sure if any of our gymnasts get on the blog they wont believe what they see!

I love this picture of Jake, Stevie and Sawyer. Jake is just enjoying the beautiful view. Sawyer found a new friend, Stevie. They sat together for a good 20 minutes just hanging out.

Isn't this an awesome picture! I love it!

Here comes the beautiful bride! She looked georgious!

So in love! Congratulations!!!

How sweet is Carolyn to help Jake with his butanier. She really is such a sweet girl.

A little walk along the beach just after the ceremony.

This is the perfect picture of Carlolyn. She looks so content in Jakes arms. She looks beautiful and in love.

Nothing like romance on the rocks!

Isn't this a unique shot of the wedding. I thought it was really original and a great shot.

The wedding party.

I didn't know this picture was being taken but i'm so glad it was. Sawyer looks so precious. He loves his big brother so much and had such a great time at the wedding.

After the wedding we all headed over to a Luau. It was so much fun! Ariel took Sawyer to explore the sights around the Luau. She is such a great big sister and was so good to Sawyer on this trip. (she always is) These two love to play together, you can definitely tell in this picture.

Josh and Sawyer looking at the sunset. Sawyer had to stand just like Josh. He is so funny!

You are both such wonderful people, and so many people love you and look up to you. Please continue to allow your love to grow and enjoy your time together. Congratulations!!!! We love you both! Carolyn welcome to the Lee family!
