Summer Work

 Sometimes I can trick you into thinking summer homework is fun... letting your wear "Mr. Smarty Pants" glasses while you work.  

 And when all else fails...I just let you make kissy faces until you can't stop laughing.  I love summers.  I love the lazy mornings, you two by my side all day long, trips to the waterpark and popsicles in the driveway.  More than anything...I love you both more than all of the stars in the sky.  May you always be best friends and may you always be my babies!

Summer Nights

Summer nights.  It stays light longer and the warm air feels good.  It's not spent better than by eating strawberry cake straight from the pan...with your fingers of course.  Love you my littlest man.

Some days are harder than others, but no matter what I love me some Rustin.  Love you more than big t-shirts and comfy chairs my little man.

Last Day of School

You both survived another year of school.  A hard year, a new place and lots of memories made.  Not all good but definitely not all bad...and most importantly we were all together.  Here's to many more my sweet loves!

 We brought you home on a whim.  You belonged to a friend of Rustin's who had 5 or 6 of your brothers and sisters, too.
It was love at first sight for this boy.  He lugs you everywhere he goes. 

You are officially his...Rustin's favorite thing to call you is Gert-Gert...but most importantly you are a Smith!

Go Make a Difference

 You're first year book complete with autographs.  You looked at it every single night....studying every page and every signature.  I love how deeply you love things, Ryder Smith.  XoXo- Mom
