...9 days and counting, until Liam starts Kindergarten! He has been having a blast at summer camp at the science center the past two weeks and has one more week to go before school starts. For the most part he has been well behaved. I even heard this great story last week...Liam made friends with this little girl (who is probably 7 years old) named Anavi. One day, Anavi was feeling lonely and missing her mom. So Liam, ran and got the phones of our family that I had put in his backpack the weekend before. He told her also about his family and what was going on in the pictures and she wasn't sad any more. It makes me feel so good that he has such compassion. My little boy is growing up so fast!

In other news, we took the boys to the Detroit zoo for the first time yesterday. It was a warm day, but we had a lot of fun and saw so many animals! Grant is now nearly running - he was showing us that he has a mind of his own and constantly tried running the opposite direction. So I had to corral him in the stroller for much of the trip. At one point we stopped to get frozen lemonaid. While we were waiting, Liam saw a Cicada ambushed and carried off by a Cicada Killer - I am afraid that the even was so traumatic that he will remember it more than all the cool animals that we saw.

My big 5-year old!

Hard to believe that I first became a mother 5-years ago this week! My little Liam turned 3 on Wednesday and today we celebrated his birthday with friends and family.

Here are a few pictures from our festivities this week.
