Father's Day

We had a great Father's Day last weekend. We took Mike to the waterpark with the Davis'. The kids were very well behaved and the older kids really had a fun time trying new things. Here they are on the zip line!

Wednesday, June 22, 2011 did that happen?

I just gave relationship advice to Reilly. YES, the boyfriend/girlfriend or girlfriend/girlfriend kind you are thinking of.

I'm pretty sure she turned 5 like 21 days somebody please tell me how I just had THAT conversation with her? I'm pretty sure it was the first of many times I'll tell her that there are plenty of fish in the sea, she'll have many boyfriends (or girlfriends) over the years, she'll find the right person later in life.

ummm....breathe mommy, breathe. Yes, you just had THAT talk.

First Day of Camp

Today starts the first day of camp. For Brooke that means swimming every day and lots of fun memories. For Reilly, it is a milestone. She is officially done with Preschool and is preparing for Kindergarten. Starting today, she swims twice a day. 8:00 a.m. Sharks Swim Team, and mid-day swim time with her class. And starting today, there is no more napping as they prepare for Kindergarten. She is a big girl now...which means pick-up will be ohhh so fun as we transition and get her used to a regular schedule which includes no naps. Both girls were looking forward to 8 weeks of fun!

Happy 5th Birthday, Reilly!


5 years old?!? How did that happen. Somehow 4 sounded like a baby still, 5 sounds like such a big girl! You are such a sweet, loving girl. You care about all others around you - friends and family. You have lots of friends and are very social.

At home you love to help us around the house, help your sister and hug mommy and daddy. You really love your sister and love taking care of her - even if she isn't always so nice to you ;-). You help her get dressed, you brush her teeth, you help her with her boo-boos and you love to snuggle with her.

You love spending time with your Grandma and calling Grandpa and Nana and skyping with Ben and Charlotte.

At school, you love art and dance. You are the tallest girl in your fact there is only one kid taller than you, and he is 6 months older. You are the light of my life. I love you!!
