Our plans have changed...but don't they always?

The great news is that Greg is NOT going overseas anymore and we couldn't be happier. And the other great news is that he is enrolled and has already started his summer classes at Utah Valley University.  He is currently on track to have his Bachelors degree in Public Relations by Christmastime next year.  As for the rest of our family life, we are happily plugging along. 

My mom has been in town for almost 2 weeks, scheduled to drive home tomorrow. On Saturday afternoon, the littles and I will load up the car and make our annual trek across the Northern Nevada desert for another 2 weeks with Granny and Grandpaw. The 4th of July and two weeks on the beaches of Lake Tahoe? I'm pretty sure summer doesn't get any better than that. Oh, except that soon after we return, we will pack up again and go "crawdad camping" with our extended Kemp family.

It's true. Life is good.

They hear what they want.

Lincoln loves his Aunt Meredith. Luh-huvs.

And Ethan is officially a kindergarten graduate...with all the trimmings.

Exhibit A: We are driving as a family earlier this week and Ethan begins to chant from the back seat:

Mama and Daddy sittin' in a tree
K-I-S-S-I-N-G . . .

This song is a kindergarten development, but it is not the first time we've heard it.  He sings it regularly around the house . . . and Lincoln has been listening . . . kind of.

. . . Back in the car, Lincoln chimes in:

First comes love,
Then comes meredith
Then comes the baby in the baby carriage!

Seriously. I still can't stop laughing about it. But it's true.  Lincoln luh-huvs his Aunt Meredith.
