I have taken out a little time this week and listened to my kids and what they say and how funny they can be. It has been so much fun doing that!I get so caught up in doing, doing, doing, that I forget to stop and enjoy the simple stuff. Cambree said Thank'd U so sweet when I gave her some milk and then she has been saying I "W"ove U. Awesome! Paisley, stands in a bar stool and looks and me with her hand stretched way over her head saying, "see mommy I'm bigger than you", like the chair didn't give her a good 6 or more inches head start. Then she would look at me and say stuff like, "I take care of her everday mommy, cause I am big". If you could just see her little eyes blinking as she is saying this so seriously. So funny to me and warms my heart. Kyler on the other hand is just being so sweet like helping me clean his room and watching over the girls. Such a big boy and growing up. I am so amazed at how time has flown by and my kids are growing up and I feel like I can't remember everything and don't have time to write down all there great moments so I just wanted to share a little bit of what I got this week.

Well to brief everyone in I am a Joybelle Counselor at my church. I have the ages 10 to 14/15! Suppose to be 9-12 years old but I can't get rid of some of my girls. I guess they love me to much. Yeah right! Anyways I always take them on 1 big trip or outing for a day and I try to let it be a big one when I can! They love it. This year I am moving a lot of my girls up and so we decided to go to Alabama Adventure before pushing them Reda's way. What a day...... hardly no sleep the night before and then what felt like 100 degrees we was in was not the best in the world. Anyways I was truly blessed to see some of the faces of my girls that I took because 3 or 4 had never been to an amusement park at all and I take them to their first and then to a water park too. They had some of the biggest smiles. I even would act crazier than they did, which is not hard for me! I made them skip to, "We are off to see the wizard the wonderful wizard of oz", to which I had a girl even look at me and said there is no yellow brick road. You've got to be kidding me I said. She looked at me real funny but we all had fun. I really took good care of my girls with the sunblock and got myself pretty good but you see I had a shirt on and I could not handle the heat so I took it off to just wear my bathing suit top (please do not try to get a mental picture of what that looked like,ha) and forgot my back. I am so burnt on my back that I hate getting in the shower even 2 days later. It just stings! We all got red even where we put sunblock just couldn't keep enough sunblock on to protect us. As far as I am concerned 9 girls and 2 counselors were all dead tired by the time we got home but I loved every minute seeing some of the girls faces on roller coasters, tube rides, scramblers and other fun rides. I love parks and to see them love it too is so much fun.

To long I know. I get a little behind. Just wanted to show off my little man that graduated preschool on May 15, 2009. I was so proud of him. Everything has went by so fast this year. When he started school last year, I was excited for him but scared to! I guess that is part of parenting. He had a good year but I can tell you one thing, he did not like getting up early and doing work. HA! He wants to work with his papaw everyday. Anyways, I was told once before that when your kids start school everything seems to start flying by and it did to me. I am really proud of him for all his accomplishments that he made this year.

Well I know it has been a long time since I have posted a blog. I have got to get with it. I just wanted to put a few pictures of our beach trip. We had a great time but the only bad thing that happened to us was Dwight deciding to jam his toes into the beach sand wall. To me, of course, was hilarious. I just couldn't help watch my husband fall and then I realized he was really hurt. He was a limper the rest of the trip. His little toes had swelled up on him and he hurt so bad and I know that I must be an awful wife because I would double over laughing every time I thought about what he did. His foot still hurts him some but is a lot better. Also you know when you go to the beach you can't wait to run from the cooler weather here to bake in the hot sun......well not so much for us. The high on Monday was 64 degrees and believe me we felt it with our shorts and tanks on. Tuesday a little better but like 72 with windy conditions which felt just as cold. Putt Putting was a little chilly that night but Cambree seemed to love "throwing" the ball across the greens. It was quite a trip with 3 kids against 2 parents. I loved it, just spending time with my kids without all the hassle of everything that is at home. Well here are some pictures of our trip and I will post and show off my little man with his preschool graduation tomorrow.
