boys will be boys {a scrapbook layout}

Holy smokes has it been crazy around here! Between school starting, a couple of big projects at work, and a new ministry at church-life has just been a little bit more of an adventure than normal. :)
Over Labor Day weekend, we got our two youngest boys new beds and furniture for their rooms-yay for Ikea! {I am pretty good at putting together Ikea furniture these days} it was a little bittersweet though. I dropped off two toddler beds, a changing table, and crib bedding at our local baby resale shop. It's a little sad to think my days of changing diapers and rocking babies to sleep are over.
All of those feeling had me pulling out some old photos of the boys. I had to scrap this one.

I remember the day it was taken. Not long before we had Brody. It was very hot that day and I was very pregnant. The boys had so much fun posing and hamming it up for the camera.
Can't believe it was 4 years ago. That those gap toothed 7 year olds are now pre-teens talking about girlfriends and meeting friends at football games. That 4 year old is now older than his brothers were in this picture, talking about trying out for baseball and studying for spelling tests.
It certainly was an adventure waiting to happen.
