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!!

Donut day....

Is National Donut day even a real thing? Well we did it up right just in case! Our 3 older kids are with my parents in Arkansas attending VBS at Pleasant Valley Church of Christ so Jeremy, Drew, and I went to a movie. We were going to grab dinner on the way. As we are driving thru Ark City he made a comment about wanting to try this donut shop....well it was open and they severed dinner. So why not?

Yes that is a donut burger, and it was good....

We topped things off with a coconut and an Oreo cake donut, both fabulous!

And now I should probably go run about 10 miles or so! Hope you all enjoyed your donut day!

Bandwagon finders....

After several post from my dear friend Katie I decided to check into this Geochaching. So last weekend I checked and there were to my surprise several caches in Newkirk. So the kids and I started out on our hunting! Our first was walking distance from our house...

Unfortunately it was a little disappointing cause we couldn't climb to get it. I probably could've but given recent histories with broken bones we opted out. So we went back home to collect Maddie and Drew and we drove to a couple more that we were able to find!

So we will see how many more we go after. I downloaded the free app cause I thought it might be fun to do on occasion when we needed out of the house!
Then I started working at the Enid Courthouse just for a few weeks and now I'm so tired and worn out! I'll be lucky if I have clean clothes to wear next week! So our next adventure may be put on hold for a while!
