july fourth

Here's a glimpse at the fun time we had at the farm on July 4th this year. Emma put the boys in cute red, white and blue shirts....wouldn't it have been cute if us doggies wore red and blue bandanas and we took a family picture?? Yeh. We had a blast at the farm and ended up staying for most of the month of July while Emma was in Africa. Those pictures and stories to come soon....

Thanks Ima!

the boys had a BLAST with Ima Carol in the middle of June while Jon and Emma chaperoned a church youth trip to Panama City, Florida.

Lazy pups!

Remember us? Two lovable doggies that live in North Carolina? We love our family and normally we share lots of fun stories about them. You might be wondering where we've been and many people have been commenting on our laziness towards our blog. Sorry!

Here's our EXCUSE: Our family has been going here and there all summer. We enjoyed a long stay up at our favorite place, the farm in Virginia. We've been back for a couple weeks, but have so many stories to share, we don't even know where to start.

So we'll start with today...and then we'll backtrack and tell you of our adventures of the past two months!

Today, we have a story about our dear Colton. He's such a sweet kid. But as some of you may know, he has not had the desire to place poo poo in the potty. He's been great at going pee and pulling his shorts back up, but every time he needs to go poo, he goes and gets a pull up, goes and then sometimes even cleans himself up. Yesterday, Emma told him that there were no more pull ups. And today, he decided to go poo poo in the potty! I know some of you may not be as excited and jumping out of your seats like Jon and Emma are...but we just wanted to share with you the big news at the Joersz house today!

More to come soon about multiple trips to the farm, the beach, the boys staying with both sets of grandparents, doggy treats, chasing chickens, painting, Emma's trip to Africa, fun at the pool & bunk beds!
