Kinley: July

Kinley: JULY:
You are over the moon that school is about to start and that your birthday is only 3 months away! I wish I had have half the energy and enthusiasm you have everyday sweet girl! MC has been gone away a lot this last month for camps and you have been super sad; you miss her like crazy! So, of course I've left you bunk up with me a few times and it's been fun! One of you most favorite things about summer is camping and you have begged to go almost every weekend and you finally got to go on the 4th of July! 

I couldn't resist taking this sweet picture of you and Cooper after you FINALLY fell asleep!
You act like his little boss and it cracks me up!

Time for tubing!!!!

 Lat week you had a blast at your week long gymnastics camp! You where soooo excited that they put you with the older group and not "the babies!"
Me, daddy, nana, and papaw all came to watch your end of the week exhibition and you rocked it! I love to see you so excited about gymnastics! 

You finally got your back bend kick over and now your ready to be able to do it on the floor! I love your drive sweet bugs! 

You may love to dress up and put on all kinds of jewelry and pile on the lip gloss but buddy you are just as tom boy! You love the mud, hunting, and fishing! We fished this last weekend and not 10 seconds after you set your pole.... you had one and you where beyond tickled!

Creed: July

So we spent the 4th of July out at the lake. The big kids love to ride their bikes all over the place and daddy wanted you to be able and keep up with them so he surprised you with your first little power wheels! You where SOOO excited it was just precious to watch! 

 Daddy showed you once where to push and
 OFF you went! You loved it!
 You even got to stay up late with the big kids!
 One of my most favorite things to do at the lake is swing with you! You are just toooo cute!
 Last year you where not that mobile but this where everywhere!!!
 and just so proud of yourself!
 Love this little chunky monkey face!
 Saturday morning you found daddy's empty Red Bull in our beach basket and you
 went to town,lol!
 I'm so glad there was nothing but drops in it because you do not need any more energy than you already have!
 You love to help daddy drive the boat and to honk the horn!

 We had not been home 10 minutes from the lake and I was unpacking the car and I hear a loud shattering noise! I walked in to find you had helped yourself to the brand new bottle of Worcester sauce and dropped it of course! And the clean up sucked but the smell....that lingered for DAYS was almost unbearable!
 You also had your first trip to the river this month! YES this is you walking off saying NO MOMMY when I asked you to take a picture with your sisters!
 LOVING that water!

 And you saw a watermelon and couldn't resist!
Mrs. Shannon kept giving you more and more and more. I bet you ate 5 big pieces of watermelon! Maybe that's why you are such a sweet boy!\
 Ms Reagan sent me this picture yesterday of you having lunch and it caught me soooo off guard that you looked like such a big boy!
 You have been scared to death of daddy's Xmark for months now but FINALLY you have gotten over that fear and you LOVE to ride on it! And now that is alllll you want to do is "Mow with daddy!"
 my boys!
Aunt Paige and Greer came yesterday to keep you........ and I think to say you had a bit of an understatement! I am so glad you have them in your life and you love them so dearly like the rest of us do!

Micah Claire:JULY

Oh July Micah Claire has LOVED you and I hate despised you big time! You had a birthday party sleepover on the Friday of 4th of July weekend, then we camped. When we got home it was time to pack you up for camp. And not just any camp mind you....this was an out of town and overnight camp.  THREE whole nights....FOUR long days. It was the the longest you and I have EVER been apart since I was pregnant with you. The first night I waited up till 11pm for you to call.....NO call. I woke up about every 2 hours ALL night long to make sure I had not missed a call and that my phone was on and that they didn't call daddy's phone.  Night TWO; still NO call, I mean really I was getting a little mad. Night THREE NOOOOOO call. I was crying like a dang baby and so was Kinley! You where so missed! We got you home for two days and you where off again to another week long camp; but this was not over night thankfully!! 

 All packed and ready for camp!
 GK, MC, and all these girls with these double names!

 getting settled in the bunk house!
 Look at these excited little girls!!
 I was so excited to see that some of friends from high school where there with their kids!
 Nana making sure MC "REALLLLY" wanted to stay and not just come home,lol!

 Kinley did such a great job on the card she sent you! I just busted out crying when I read what she wrote! I mean how precious for her to say you are "special to me."
 And FINALLY Friday came!!!!!! It was pick up time and of course I came 30 minutes early and yall where still in closing worship and I was about to lose my mind waiting! You saw me and took off running and jumped into my arms and I could NOT stop the tears! BEST feeling in the world to finally hold you!!!
 You didn't make it but just a few minutes till you just smooth passed out.......on tired little girl!
This Monday you loaded the bus and headed to Family Farm for the first time ever! You have have had a ball there all week and I can't wait till your closing ceremony tomorrow! You are so excited to show me how you can canoe, ride a horse, shoot a bow and arrow, and zip line!!! 

Last weekend you had your first, as we call it int he south, "mudding" experience! You did not know what to think of it at first. You where nervous and did NOT want to get dirty. got more than a little dirty and you had a ball by the end!

Kinley: JUNE

Well I started this post a few weeks ago but here I am on July 13th trying to finish it up,lol! Our summer has been jammed packed and this mommy is t-i-r-e-d! You have really done some growing up these last few months which is great but that also comes along with you testing you boundaries! You have decided that sometimes it's best to not tell the truth to stay out of "big trouble." But you have started to learn that mommy and daddy usually know the truth before we even ask. And sadly we have had to discipline you more that we want to. You moved up to the Hot Shots gymnastics team this month and you are loving it, you are swimming like a fish, and you are riding your bike like crazy! You are OVERLY excited about kindergarten starting and you have a count down going just to remind me EVERYDAY, exactly how many more days it is! 

You had a great time at VBS this year and it was extra special because Greer came and was in your group!
 You are FINALLY tall enough this year to go down the big twisty slide at our water park and you do it over and over and over again!

And if you not on the slide you are going off the diving board!
