Tuesday Tidbits

*The kids have been busy with Basketball camp, Baseball Camp, Tennis Camp (for Macy) and in July....Football Camp. They have loved doing this. This is the first summer they have really been intersted in doing the summer camps at their school. This year they are doing it at a new school in the area. Reid has done the camp with Cousin Justin, only because he knew him. Reid is shy like that. But this summer he has loved meeting new kids and showing off his skills. :) Macy has loved tennis camp and has actually hit some balls OVER the net instead of the court next to her or hitting her opponent.

*It's a good thing they are doing the camps at the new school because we are in the process of moving....yes, moving. Our house is on the market and we have a contract to build in the town right next to us. (Still the same school district) We are super excited and ready for our new adventure that God has planned in our lives. We have to sell our house in order for it to all fall in to place so please keep us in your prayers. AND if you hear of someone needing a really cute house....let me know. :) We will keep you posted and will hopefully have pictures to share soon.

*With the house on the market I have to keep my house clean. The clean part isn't so bad but having to make the beds everyday before I leave is getting REAL old! After they are made I am glad because it does feel good...maybe it will become a habit. Who knows?

*We just got back from the movies. We saw Toy*Story and yes, there were tears. I remember when Reid had all the characters and LOVED watching it. We watched it all the time. The movie we have is even a VHS. haha! It makes me sad to think my baby is growning up. I feel all sappy just talking about it.

*I need to go to the grocery store. Why do I hate it so much? There is no food in the house and my teenager has let me know...oh, about every 5 minutes.

*Summer has been great so far. I have loved sleeping a little later and just hanging out at home. I have heard the dreaded words I AM BORED but other than that things are great. It usually doesn't last long. There has already been swimming fun, Schlitt*erbahn trip to G-town, play dates, fireworks and rides at Ke*mah, camps and fun family bike rides.

*I love SuMmEr! Hope you are enjoying your summer, too!

What have you done fun so far? Do you like going to the grocery store? Have you heard the dreaded summer words yet...I'm bored?

Changing the world one girl at a time....

The week after school got out we had our first ever Girl scout camp. ..well for us, anyway. Camp Happy. It was a Monday thru Friday day camp. Loads of fun from 9 am to 2:30pm! Macy had a blast....along with 5 other girls in her troop. I was her leader and learned this week that I am getting to old for this. The heat, emergency evacuation, flying ant stings, sideways rain, mud, dehydration, teenage girl fainting and did I mention the heat? It was too much. ha!
But, now that camp is behind me, I can look back and say that it was one of the most rewarding things I have done. Those girls are awesome and seeing them smile, laugh, screaming when it was popsicle time, running through the "people washer" 10 times just to stay cool, the hugs, them writing me sweet notes, signing the back of my shirt and saying they loved me made it all worth it.
. The things we do for our kids....don't look too close.

My sweet girl trying to wake up....oh, those early morning camp songs. Could they be any more corny?

There's that sweet smile. She had a blast at Camp!

This was her favorite! She loved the canoe ride. But, now, a few days later we have a fungus on our arm....thanks to the lovely canoe ride. haha!

We love the Sea*brook Fire Dept!!! They came and cooled us off on Friday! What a treat!
