Kevin's in 4th Grade!

Here's Kevin leaving for his first day of 4th grade.  How did he get to be so old already?  He's still my little boy!  Sometimes I hate year round school, because it feels like we should be busy having some summer fun still.  This summer ran away from me, and I didn't even do a fraction of the fun things with the kids that I wanted to.

I know this picture isn't great, but he was already on his way when I thought about it, and it was bright and sunshiney outside.
Here's Kevin's after school treat.  It's pretty yummy, and was easy to make at the last minute when I realized I wanted to have a treat for him after his first day.

1/2 cup honey
1 cup nut butter (whatever you've got on hand)
4 TBS cocoa powder
2 cups oats

Heat up the honey, add nut butter and cocoa powder, stir, add oats.  Stir some more.  Make balls.  Eat 'em.

At the Zoo with Annabelle and Kids

Not too long ago the kids and I went with Annabelle and her kids to the zoo.  We had a great time, and the new Rocky Shores area was really neat.  We love spending time with these guys.  Here are a few cute pictures:
