The Hepburn Family Update

April 27th, 2013

It seems like it might be time for one of these…

If, you are standing… sit!

Our house is for sale! We have loved this house, the neighbors, and neighborhood for 9 years. But, it is now time to move. We have been putting it off for the last couple of years. It can not wait any longer.

We bought a house! We are closing on Monday and moving in over the week/weekend. It will be so different from where we are now… Much larger house, different area, farther away from family, and not even close to my Costco or SuperTarget. But, it will only take me about 20 minutes to drop off Gavin and get to work. Currently, it is about a 50 minute process to get to work and about an hour to get back home… Oh! The time savings! The school system is great and we will be getting use out of it in the fall.

Gavin starts FIRST GRADE! Gavin is enrolled for school. That was a weird day. My baby is all grown up and ready to go to big boy school. I will cry when he gets on the bus. No doubt… It will happen (both the bus and the crying!).

Our family is expanding! Gavin will be a big brother in the fall. Gavin was not so sure about a baby joining our family. But, since his mommy is pregnant… He will have to deal with it. However, we took him to the ultrasound appointment and he was thrilled when they said it was a BOY. In true Hepburn fashion, the baby was flashing us! He was leaned back, legs spread wide apart, and making sure we did not miss the fact that he is a boy. In the baby boy’s defense, I had been calling him, a her. I think he just wanted to make sure that I stopped… Point taken!

There will be a lot of changes in the next 5 months. As a mom, I should have a handle on all the upcoming changes for the household, school, and new baby. As a pregnant mom of advanced maternal age (I might scream the next time that I hear that phrase), I will have notes on all the upcoming changes for the household, school, and new baby. Pregnancy brain snuck in super early with this one! The biggest concern is all the changes for my boy. He will be dealing with all kinds of new things over the next few months. Once all the newness wears off, he will love having more room, meeting new friends, starting a new school, riding the school bus, less time in the car (yeah!), projects that he can work on with his daddy, and helping with new baby.

We will have a new phone number and address after the first week of May. You can contact Scott or myself for our updated information. I hope to send out an email to family and friends with the info, but I am not promising a time line on that!

Have a great summer!

Golf Camp

June 11th, 2012

Gavin started taking golf classes almost a year ago. He wanted to try it and really seems to like it. Christmas and birthday time brought him golf clubs, an indoor putter, and some other misc golf items.

Recently, he had a week of golf camp at Shortee’s. He really enjoyed it and wants to go again. I would be okay if he decided to stick with this.





June 3rd, 2012

Someone got a new pet…

This makes number 4 and the tiniest!

And, new cage for all!

There’s room to stretch.

Bath/Slide Area

New places to chill out

I still can’t believe that I have frogs in my house. But, they are cute! =)

Buy Me Some Peanuts and Cracker Jacks

June 2nd, 2012

Or, some nachos, hot dogs, drinks, and cotton candy.

We took Gavin to his first baseball game last night.

Our seats were great!

Gavin loves nachos with chicken and black beans!



Fireworks after the game! Gavin loved it!

Goddard School Carnival

May 31st, 2012

Gavin’s school had their end of school/beginning of summer party last night… Rooms set up with games and prizes, temporary tattoos, a couple of bounce houses, arts & crafts, and a make your own sno-cone. And, food… We can’t forget the food and yummy cookies.

I did not get any pictures of the fun, but here is how Gavin ended his night.

Very intent on the right ratio of ice to flavoring

Looks like the ratio was correct… Success!!

Sleepy Boy

May 26th, 2012

Pseudo-Gradution, Putt-Putt with arcade games, wedding… All in two days. This is what happens on the drive home…

Wipe Out!!


Handsome Boy

May 25th, 2012

Our boy is cute! There is no way around it… He just is!


Hot Dogs with Daddy

May 17th, 2012

This is what Gavin eats for dinner when Daddy takes him to golf class.


Why do I rush him home for a family meal? He looks happy to me. And, rumor has it that he ate the whole hot dog and the fries.


Car Wash

May 15th, 2012

I got the Pilot washed.


Because, Dave Jourdan wrote in the dirt on the driver’s side of my vehicle.

Bad, Dave, bad!!

Gavin knows that is a no-no!

Charlotte’s Warriors

May 12th, 2012

We walked for March of Dimes today. It was a beautiful day for it and the walk along the canal was awesome. However, hearing the stories that families told… That was sad.

We walked for a family that I have know for over 10 years. Wow!
Their daughter/granddaughter was born way too early. She was so tiny… She held on for 9 days She will never know the amount of people that were here waiting to love and spoil her.

I can’t begin to imagine a loss as great as this. Honestly, I never want to experience a loss as great as this.

Gavin and Elias

A boy needs to eat after that long walk, er… ride. Somebody rode in the stroller the large majority of this walk!

Really, Sleepy Boy

April 27th, 2012

I don’t remember what he did at school this day… It must have been big!


Golf Class

April 26th, 2012

I signed Gavin up for classes. So far, he gets super excited about it every week. We will see…
