Soccer Camp

With 3 kids at home this summer it was fine time for the oldest one to get out of the house and enjoy his first summer camp experience. Luckily, there were several options offered right here in our neighborhood. Taylor chose Soccer Camp and happily went off to camp every morning for an entire week 9-3pm (except for the last day when he said he had a tummy ache but still went anyways, boy was he actually really tired and wore out from a weeks worth of activity).

Five is definiely the age of independence as without missing a beat he ran onto the field without as much as a 'goodbye' every morning. He seemed to really enjoy each day (dribbling, shooting, retrieving balls out of the air, and passing), except for warm-ups - not his favorite thing, kids can be so finicky! However, he powered through 100+ temperatures each day and we're proud of him for trying something new.

We've already heard requests to do it again next summer!

What Can I Say...

-My Favorite Hostess Meets Bartender Picture, 1999-

What can I say about a man I have grown to love more and more each day for the last 12 years. From a man who thought he would never get married and would never have children...look at you now! Married for 9 great years and 3 wonderful boys later, you're really an amazing Father and Husband.

All of us couldn't make it without you!

-Our Mornings Lately-

The boys and I love you for your sense humor, cooking skills - lol, smiles, laughter, dedication, sport skills, love for outdoor activities, enthusiasm, joy, wise cracking jokes, one liners, and your love and attention. Happy Father's Day to you and to all the Father's we know!

This picture was a one shot you can see one of them is not too happy...such is our life lately:)

Cannon Ball

Get a running start and grab your knees...


Or just fling your arms out to the side and hold your breath...

Once you go under, then swim back up to the top!

Nothing better than being 5 and spending the day at your favorite pool!

Time for goggles and some underwater swimming...Swim Team here we come!
