Mom & Maddie date night!

While we were in Edmond Lyric was putting on The Little Mermaid! I waivered on buying tickets, but when I found out the princesses were in the lobby before hand it was perfect for her. She loved it all and kept saying "it's just you and me, no other kids!" So I'm so glad we got to do that! It was a great night topped off with some dessert after the musical!

4th of July!

Well we went back to Newkirk for about 4 days until we came back to Edmond to celebrate our 9th Anniversary and the 4th of July. We enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Paseo was amazing! Then just hung out in the 4th and enjoyed the fireworks at UCO on the 4th! Drew was a little trooper, my mom had some great little headphones on hand for him to see the fireworks. He fell asleep toward the end so it must have worked!

Weekend Visitor!

Levi came from Arkansas to go to Cage Camp with Cooper (& Jackson) and we brought him home to Newkirk with us for a couple of days! I think it was fun for Cooper to have a boy his age to play with instead of always playing with Maddie and Kellyn. Really the 4 older kids played together great! Jeremy took them to golf a little bit, we watched the premiere of Girl Meets World, had a Lego Movie Night, and I took them to the new splash pad! It was a great long weekend with him.

Swimming Lessons

Cooper and Maddie took swimming lessons with Logan Rosenbalm for 2 weeks in June while we camped out at my parents house. They did so well this year. You can really start to see them understand how to swim and do a lot of it on their own. This year Cooper especially overcame a lot of fear of the water. He is pretty confident, but still likes the comfort of his life jacket. Maddie has always been a little fish and not scared of much, so she did awesome jumping off the diving board and doing her torpedoes! I was so proud of them for what they learned this summer at lessons!

Basketball Camp

Cooper went to his first cage camp this summer. He had a blast and enjoyed it with his cousins. He needs to be a little more aggressive and a little less encourager. Not too much less encourager, cause its really cute! Here are some pics from the week!

Kellyn's First Haircut!

Yesterday I had a hair appointment. Being honest mostly to get my hair washed, but it needed a fresh trim. Maddie and Kellyn went with me. Maddie wouldn't have anyone touch her hair, which isn't surprising. I may have forced a trim for Kellyn, she won't let me pull her hair back and her bangs were all in her face. Once she settled down she sat nicely in the chair where I watched her little mullet curls go away. But her hair is still curly! She did great, now I should probably buy a baby book to put her little hair in....

Pleasant Valley VBS

My Aunt Linda asked my Dad to reprise his roll as Mr. VBS at their church in Little Rock so the kiddos tagged along. Which gave Jeremy, Drew, and I some quality time together where we enjoyed a few dinners out and a couple of movies! Apparently on Sunday at VBS Cooper led a prayer that was heartfelt and left all the adults in the room asking whose kid that was! So I'm so proud that what we've been teaching him at home is getting through to him. They talked about the prodigal son, and Cooper said he would never leave Jesus, I pray all the time that is the case! All 3 kiddos stayed with Jeni and Necon; Kellyn was supposed to stay with my parents, but apparently she grabbed her little backpack and walked right into Jeni's so they kept her too! Necon took a few pics and sent them to me!

The other boy in the photo above is Necon's sisters boy, who apparently is now a "cousin" to us! I love that my kids are getting to see their cousins so much this summer; Levi is even coming to OKC for Pee-wee camp now!!
