Accomplished August {2016}

I couldn't really think of a good adjective to describe our August, but since both boys were staying busy and doing well in their first quarter of school and were both getting back into sports, accomplished seems appropriate.  Somehow, Mom and Dad survived it so that is an accomplishment as well.  Ha!  Also, Mattox finally accomplished walking on his own without holding on for support.  So yes, I guess it was an accomplished month.

Big boy Mattox accomplished eating some big boy lunches like this cheese quesadilla Mommy made him.

Big boy Brody accomplished being a very brave and tough little man at his 5 year check up and getting his last shots for kindergarten.  He is always a tough boy at the doctor and nothing like his big brother Evan.  Mattox accomplished being silly and entertaining.
