Summer update

Summer is going way too quick for me. Usually we hop into a summer routine and just sit back and enjoy. This summer seems busy and hurried. The big kids have a lot of obligations with swim teams, the little kids are in camp. I'm certainly enjoying the time, just nervous that it's moving too fast and we need more time than we are going to have. But we are having a good time and enjoying the hot weather and pool. I have 4 little fishes and we never tire of afternoons at the pool.

Anna celebrated her 4th birthday. Her actual birthday was the day after my dad passed away so we had a delayed celebration. She had a couple of girlfriends over for a morning of arts and crafts and cookie decorating and couldn't be happier.

The girls also dressed up and played princesses.

Family celebrated that night.

Happy 4th of July.

Jack and Callie, so beautifully dressed. This was outside before my dad's funeral.

Callie hanging out at a swim meet. This little girl has come such along way. Last summer she finished last in almost every event she swam but had such a great spirit and great fun. She spent the winter in private lessons with a stellar coach and this year she is doing awesome. We are so proud and she still has her spunk and continues to shine.

I love that I can take all the kids to a playground and they all have a ball. We went to Ohio for the 4th to visit Brian's dad and the kids had a blast. It was the perfetct mini vacation.

Jack loves that he can shape his hair any way, any time. The kid swims so much that no matter how much conditioner I put in, it's swimmers hair and he is loving it.

Hoping to get better about updates. Praying for a nice long, slow summer with my kids!!
