Our Little Fish

Kaden is on the swim team for the first time this summer.  He is absolutely loving it!  He couldn't be happier that he gets to swim almost everyday.  He has had 2 meets already and swam the freestyle, backstroke, and freestyle relay in each meet.  So far he has earned every ribbon except a first place ribbon so he is hoping to get one of those soon.  He has a signature dolphin move that is very cute but isn't exactly helping him to win any races.
This was from the first meet at Blythefield.  It was in the 90's that day and Emerson and Perry were such troopers for making it through the 3+ hour swim meet.

Happy Father's Day!!

One of the fun things that the kids & I did for Chris this year was to bake him "burger & fries".  I couldn't believe how realistic they looked.  They turned out super cute and were NOT a lot of work.  I stole the idea from here.
Every year since Perry was born I make the kids take pictures with these letters and then Chris has them framed in his office.  It is so fun to see the difference from year to year.

Let Summer Begin!!

Kaden and Emerson both had great years!  I now have a preschool and a kindergarten graduate.  We are all ready for extended bedtimes, sleeping in, pool days, and the lazy days of summer.  This is when I love being a stay at home mom:)

Tiny Dancer

Emerson had her second dance recital last weekend.  She did great again this year!  I was so proud of her that I was tearing up during her recital rehearsal.  If I can figure out how to upload a video to blogger I will post it, otherwise I posted it on facebook.
Emerson and her brothers before the big night!  The recital was 3 LONG HOURS!  So her brothers were very nice to sit there that long.  Just today Emmy got an invitation to be in a special competition dance group a at her studio.  Not sure if that is the route we will go (very pricey) but even if we don't she will definitely dance again next year.
