Shepard with his hair grown out

Shepard has to grow out his hair from the usual buzz cut for his part in A Christmas Carol.
And he has been liking the new look.
But, (sigh) he's a Wasson boy and doesn't like to fix his hair, so he would rather wear a hat than fix his hair.  (Which means we will probably go back to the buzz after the play.) :(
But, I wanted to get a picture of him with his hair grown out...
so last weekend the sun was setting and it looked like a beautiful time to take pictures.  I love him in brown (so handsome!) and so we rushed over to the pond before the light was completely gone and took a few pictures. 
This one makes. my. heart. melt!

I love his FUN poses, too!  He makes me smile!

Love this fella!

Josiah's Last Upwards Soccer Season

It's been a great season!  Josiah loved it!
Today was the last game and we're sad to see it go...
A few more soccer pictures!

Playing hard!

OH YA!  Right before the SCORE!! :)

I couldn't be more proud of this boy!
I really loved watching him play this year!
(Maybe we can find somewhere else for him to play soccer now that he's outgrown Upwards???)

Shepard's 9th Birthday Weekend

He had a big weekend!  Lots of celebrating for this sweet boy!
On a Friday night we had a few families over for a bonfire and outdoor movie... so fun!
(And of course, cookie cake!)

 Love these kids!  So thankful for great friends!
Lighting those candles in the wind was a little tough. :)
We salvaged a bit of birthday cookie cake from the day before and had this on his actual birthday.

One of our new fun traditions...  the goofy pose!  (I think these pictures are going to be my faves...  especially when we look back years from now cuz I already love it!)
The next day we were at Ken and Shelley's celebrating all the most recent birthdays... Shep, Catherine and Shelley.
(Shep requested cake pops for this!)
Love getting this group picture for each birthday and watching the kids grow!

More fun this weekend when Grandma and Grandpa came with a birthday gift!
Happy 9th Shepard!
Sure love this boy!!!  We are incredibly grateful for the heart he adds to our family!
