Caleb lost it!

We were sitting at the dinner table talking about what needed to be done still before the kids leave for camp tomorrow when we brought up the fact that Caleb had a loose tooth he may want to work on getting out before camp. Once we saw how loose it was we all encouraged him to wiggle it more.....or better yet, let dad check it out :) Hmm.....

What do you know.....he lost his first tooth!!
Pretty amazing to think this little tooth has been in his mouth since Feb of 2005...

We also noticed that there were about three more that are loose...he may be toothless before long! LOL






ahhh, fun summer days!

This morning we had another great playdate with friends. The kids had fun in the sprinkler and just in time because about an hour after our company left the sky got dark and the rain poured down :) Then we set in to get the 3 older kids packed for camp. So it began like this.....
and is just about done looking like this....

Caleb is beside himself with excitement as it'll be his first year!!

Summer feet

I have a friend who loves to take diff pictures of her feet and it's so unique that it inspired me :) So here are OUR summer feet!
Brianna's..
Ethan's...
Caleb's....
and last but not least...Micah's!


And June in review...

After a week in Mississippi with their grandparents the kids returned to dentist appointments and eye doctor appointments.


Micah wouldn't cooperate so I don't have any of him in a chair :(
But on with summer, water fun!!



He picked me some flowers ;)
and a yucky weed.....
She sniffs a flower...


Sniffing a flower with a yellow center gives you this....


My sister had us all over for a birthday celebration for Caleb and Micah's birthday!




The "cake"....


presents....



I found a few great blogs online and one had some great craft ideas for myself and the kids. The first one we did was to cover our journals. Great idea to make a generic 97 cent composition book unique :)







Long time no see :)

So since this year has gone by with few to no posts, here's a recap of May....


Mocha had her baby....one that we didn't even know she was pregnant with though the kids and I had just been talking a few days before about the possibility as her belly was so big :)




The boys will look for any excuse to ride in the back of the truck :)

Micah enjoyed a few rainy days with no thunder :)


Micah freaked me out by thinking this was great play!

And last but not least....a family reunion where lots of my relatives from Iowa came in, hadn't seen them in a few years :)
