Summer Vacation

Our Rueckert Family vacation began in July! We went to a fun pirate reenactment on the banks of the Susquehanna!
I want all my siblings to see that I actually got up on one ski, after 12 tries and my dear, dear sister in law, Keri Bryant, was the patient driver who cheered me on! I did this for my boys! I was so sore afterwards!
Grandma Rueckert having fun with her two grand sons: Oliver and Matthew.
Here's Matthew just enjoying being a part of it all. He's doing his best to keep up with all of his brothers.
Here are Matthew's brothers on the first day of school for Daniel and Jonathan!

Good job! That will be such a great example to always go back to when you are telling yoyr boys not to quit at something they find "too hard"!!

I wish we could have seen you SO much, Elise. I miss you!!!!
You are all SO beautiful!

I can't believe I'm not in any of these photos! How did we not see eachother at all? especially when we're so close here?

Precious, precious. Daniel and Jonathan look SO ready for school. Daniel with his backpack, and Jonathan with his roll-along book bag! Mark and Erik look excited for their brothers.
