3rd time’s a charm….. only if that means the 3rd time is the last time. For the 3rd time, Zoey has a broken arm. This is the 2nd time it was caused by a certain older sister pushing her. That certain older sister has been making Zoey’s bed and doing her chores this week. Today Zoey finally got the splint off and got the hard cast. She was very excited about choosing the color. And what says girl better than bright pink? The good news is that the cast is water proof. Makes for easier hand washing and showers. Here’s to no more broken arms.
Just like everyone else, I am doing the good ol’ First Day of School post. This year I didn’t do a very good job of pictures. I didn’t get any of the kids standing by the front door. I didn’t make a sign for them to hold that says what grade they are going into. They don’t ride the bus, so there is no waiting in the bus line or jumping off the bus with a smile pic. Oh well, here is what I did get….
Kelli Jo & Zoey posing on the playground. KJ is entering 3rd grade and Zoey 1st.
All three chose exactly what they wanted to wear and the way they wanted their hair done. They all LOVED their first day and are very excited to be going to school here at home with their friends.
Kelli Jo and Zoey LOVE swimming. Ava loves playing in the water for a few minutes and then getting out, wrapping up in a towel, getting warm, playing with some water toys, jumping back in for a minute or 2, getting out and wrapping up, etc. etc.
These last 2 weeks have been swimming lessons for all three. Unfortunately Ava was sick the entire first week and missed out a lot. Her first couple of days this week she struggled a bit. I had to keep telling her to stay in or get back in the water. She wasn’t so sure she wanted to be in there.
After a few days she was loving it and I didn’t have to monitor her at all.
Kelli Jo and Zoey love swim lessons. Kelli Jo has been a fish for a while and Zoey has really just turned into one. Zoey has no fear and goes at everything full force, so while the other kids in her class are kneeling at the side to practice dives.. Zoey runs up and jumps right up and dives in, splaying her legs all about. Kelli Jo is not afraid either, but likes to try to have a bit better form and do it “right”. I think they will be sad when tomorrow’s lesson is all over.
This is what we have been doing the past couple months that I have not blogged…
Zoey graduated from Kindergarten
We moved back home
We have had BBQs with friends
Kelli Jo turned 8
Then she was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints by Chris
So that’s basically it. Kelli Jo and Zoey are both doing tennis, basketball, and piano. Both Ava and Beckham have had their turn being sick. Beckham continues to grow and get better and better at walking. Chris is taking some classes toward graduating. We are just enjoying being together as a family in our home. We love Summer.
