Dad shot his first buck within the first few hours of opening day! It was his first buck in several years! Every year he gears up and waits patiently throughout hunting season, but without any luck comes home without that elusive animal. This year, however, was the exception! Jesse shot a nice, healthy, five year old, 8 point buck. Congrats Jesse, he's a beauty!

We said goodbye to our dear pet leopard gecko, Leo. This was the first death of a pet (besides all the nameless fish) and the boys took it especially hard. Thomas talks daily of Leo and the boys find comfort in knowing he is with God in heaven. Rest is peace Leo, we think of you often and miss you daily!

Ashton amazed all of us by joining in on a school play. Two years ago, Ashton wouldn't wear a funny pair of sunglasses because he refused to dress up/pretend. Now Ashton is trying out for school plays , memorizing lines, and interacting in a pretend fashion! Go Ashton! We are so proud of you!
Jackson's 2nd grade class helped out as musical accompaniment. Some of the boys were asked to dress as cowboys and Jack was excited to be one of them! Look at my little cowboy go! Jack is very shy, but with his peers you would never be able to tell that! Great job Jack!

Ashton and Jackson played flag football again this year. Football is something they really seem to enjoy. I cringe at the thought of tackle football and am thankful they are happy to just play flag football! Next year Thomas will be old enough to join them on the field, I am not sure how I feel about that!

Jackson celebrated his 8th birthday with his friends from school. This year's theme was Packer party as he is very into football! All but one friend was able to attend! We had such a blast!
Happy Birthday Buddy!

Another amazing soccer season for the Parker boys! Next year will be insane, Ashton will be in U12, Jackson U10, and Thomas-Jensen will be in U8. Ashton and Jackson will both be travelling and Thomas will not. So a great deal of juggling to do! But, soccer is awesome, so it will be well worth it!

Jesse and I took the boys to the Packer Stadium. They loved it! They were not able to watch the Packer's practice, because they were closed to the public, but they did get to play games, check out the Packer pro shop, and run around the stadium! Next time, we plan on doing the tour, the
boys did not seem very interested in that part!

We celebrate our 4th with family in Mellen, WI. Every year the children and I watch Jesse and his brothers, neice, and nephew in the parade. This year was little different! Jesse and I watched our boys in the parade instead of the usual. It was quite lonely on the side of the road without the boys! But, the boys had fun riding on the fire trucks and throwing candy!

Ashton and Jack in the fire truck, you can barely make out Jack's little face, but look closely it's there!
Thomas on top of the fire truck with Arianna and Zory!
Usually, we watch the fireworks in Mellen, but Jesse had to work early in the morning, so we watched the fireworks in Ashland, at Our Lady of the Lake. Best view in the area! Sadly, TJ did not like the sound of the fire works and hid with his face down, wanting to go home. Maybe next year he will enjoy them!
