Meet the Teacher

We went last Wednesday and met Harper's new teachers.  
She will be going to school MWF and is in the Older 2's class.  That's so weird that she is considered and "old 2".

Harper is not the only girl in her class this year!  She has 2 other girls in her class and 9 boys!
Luckily she has a few friends from her class last year in her class this year

She looks HUGE in this picture to me!  I can't believe she will be going to school 3 days a week!
 I some how missed a picture with her teachers but I will get one on Monday.  I am BEYOND excited about her teachers.  Miss Barb and Miss Leslie are wonderful and I can't wait to see all she learns this year.

Baby girl before I know it you'll be headed to Kindergarten.  Please slow down time, but I also like to see you explore and learn new things.  

Love you to heaven and back!

4th of July

The Sunday before the 4th we went to Rockets over Rhema with the Sanderson's and the Sparks'.  Thanks to Uncle T, we got great seats!  Just had to wait 3 hours for them to start :)
Rhema is a Bible college in our town that puts on a fireworks show every 4th and has a fair type atmosphere.  They have vendors, food, classic cars, etc.
 Thanks to Uncle T, we got great seats!  Just had to wait 3 hours for them to start :)
But we brought crayons, bubbles and snacks to keep the girls happy!

A few pictures I snapped before heading to the Lake 

Sure do love our little firecracker!

This girls LOVES the lake!  This is what she did all week.

Duck Creek fireworks are more amazing every year!

Amanda, Callen, Harper and I swimming in a little cove that was peaceful and hidden ;-) 

We already knew it but Harper is a water girl!  She loves all things water, lake, pool, bath tub.  You name it and she will want to swim in it!  Thanks Grammy and Poppy for hosting us for the week!

Father's Day 2013

I'm a little late but we had a great Father's Day.  We went to church, then Michael picked our (really just his) lunch choice, Panda Express.  I'm not a fan, but it's Father's Day and that's what he wanted!

Harper slept for 4 hours, so Michael did a lot of napping and watching Golf :) 

After dinner and a bath Harper gave Michael his gift.  She got him a Swinging Pistol Pete Golf shirt, it matches his hat she got him for Christmas!

Harper is beyond blessed to have a daddy that is always willing to play babies, run through the sprinkler, color and forgo his show for Bubble Guppies!  He sure does love her and she is pretty smitten with him!

Mini Minnow

Harper has been taking swim lessons since since March of 2012 and is loving every second of it!  She was in Diaper Dolphins for 8 weeks and has been in Flippers ever since.  

Diaper Dolphin's and Flippers are swim classes that parents swim with them to teach them the basic swimming techniques.  Harper has swam most of the time with me but a few times with Michael. 

 She was promoted in May to Minnows.  Which is where she swims with a teacher and 2-3 other children.  She has only done 2 classes and is still learning the rules and listening to her teacher.  She has a TON more freedom in Minnows than she had with mom and dad :)

 As you can see in all these pictures...she is having the best time!!!

I also have to say she has had 2 teachers (whom we request) :) and they are wonderful!!!  They have the same outgoing personality that I do and they may be loud as well :) but Harper responds well to that and listens!  Her teachers have been amazing and we are so blessed to have them!

30 Rocks!

No, it's not me turning 30 (yet).  

Jaime was the first of our group of friends to make the transition into the third decade of our lives.  And I should say that it was very Jaime! 

I was a great night, we went to Jaime's best friend's house and her hubby grilled out.  We just ate, chatted and played a game of Naked (no, no one gets naked.  It's a fun game!)

Party Guests

Phi Mu Ladies
Mysha is up next, then me :)

Jaime and all the Hubby's, they were actually very willing to take this picture

Happy Birthday Sweet Jaime!  I hope you know how loved you are!
