Soccer Camp

The kids have been keeping very busy this Spring Break. We had signed Callum up for a two day soccer camp at one of the local Soccer Leagues in the area. He was able to get out on the field with other kids and learn the basics of soccer. He absolutely loved every minute of it, so we made the decision to put him in a soccer league. I think this will be great for him!!

Community Service

Avery's teacher Mrs. McCloud, had recently assigned each one of her students to do a service to help the community. Fortunately they got to choose what service they wanted to do. Avery decided she was going clean our local park by picking up some of the trash on the soccer field and walking trails. I think she chose a very good service and I'm proud of her for helping to create a cleaner environment at our community park. I think this was a great assignment!

Callum Looses his First Tooth

Callum lost his first tooth last night! So.... I wish I could say it just fell out on its own, but that's not really the case. After he had finished brushing his teeth I went over to take a look at it. Well, it was already loose and the second tooth was already making its way out. So I was going to wiggle the tooth a little in hopes to get it to come out quicker. As I went to go push it back, almost the entire tooth popped out. It was hanging by a string, not to mention there was quite a bit of blood which I think really freaked him out. So after a few minutes of rinsing his mouth, his dad lightly pulled the the rest of the tiny tooth out and there it was! It all happened so fast he didn't know what to think at first. After his gums settled down he was very happy and put his tooth in an envelope for the tooth fairy. He was so excited to tell his friends at school this morning.

Callum's 1st tooth!

.........and his envelope to the tooth fairy. He put an arrow right next to where the tooth was :)

Happy Birthday Callum!!!

My little guy turned 7 years old this week and what a great birthday week it was! Lots of fun birthday dinners, lunches, and gifts, as well as lots of Star Wars sword fights and flying nerf gun darts throughout our house this week. A big thank you to everyone for all the wonderful gifts! Callum is very excited to be 7. Wow, I can't believe I wrote 7. I was thinking back to his first birthday last night and got a bit emotional. I remembered thinking then how fast he was growing and here we are 6 years later. Seriously, where is the pause button? I adore watching him grow everyday and seeing the little man he is turning into. I love him to infinity and I wish him the bestest bestest Birthday ever! Happy Birthday to my sweet little guy!! xo :)

Lego Land

Another fun day at Lego Land. Lines weren't too bad and the weather was perfect. At the end of the day, there were some tired little feet (and big feet), but we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day!!

Lunch with a Loved One

This week was "Lunch with a Loved One" day at school. I was able to have lunch with my two favorite little people. I had lunch with my little guy first before he ran off to get in some play time, before going back to class. Then I met my Avery afterwards for a picnic in the school courtyard. Most of the parents end up bringing their kids lots of yummy fast food for lunch. I usually try to keep it simple and pack a special lunch for them, and also that way, I don't have to fight the traffic in the fast food lines with all the other My friend Shelley took this picture of Avery and I. Unfortunately I didn't get a pic of Cal and I, but it's okay. I had a great lunch with both my little kiddos!
