Here's some of what we've been up to the past month... a little bit of everything! :)
A second round of swimming lessons. Cayden ended the summer in Youth 3 and Laura is in Toddler 2.
Cayden has really impressed us this summer. His very first session was a little rough (it was literally like throwing a cat into water... so dang funny, but pathetic and sad). But somewhere in the three days between his first and second session, something clicked in his head; it was like there was a completely different kid swimming. Cayden is doing fantastic! The exception being when he jumps into the water. I keep telling him to jump in feet first, but he ends up doing a weird lunge thing and ends up belly flopping 95% of the time. It's absolutely hysterical!
Batman joined us for breakfast one morning.
Cayden officially started second grade. I'm so happy that he loves school, though I wish he acted liked he missed me more. :)
Look at how much he has changed since the start of Kindergarten. Also, if you compare where his head is at the start of first grade and second grade... holy cow! That's a good 3-4"!
Building skateboards at Home Depot. Laura kept trying to use it as an actual skateboard (instead of just a toy) and kept breaking the wheels off. She was very disappointed.
This little girl likes tomatoes. No, she LOVES tomatoes. Everyday she looks outside and squeals when she sees tomatoes that look ripe. And she will literally devour any tomatoes you stick in front of her. It doesn't matter if it's a small handful or an entire bowl full.
Don't ask... playing t-ball in a football helmet. No idea what he was thinking.
This is what happens when you're given the entire sticker sheet at church. I can only imagine how bad it hurt to pull all those off. Goof ball.
Grace's second time in the dentist chair. She did great! The first time she didn't let them do much. This time she let them polish her teeth and check everything out! She was the last one in our family to get called back, so she spent the entire time she was waiting asking when it was her turn. Silly girl was so excited for her turn!
Sharing an ICEE three ways. You better believe that thing was gone in no time flat.
We took the kids to tour the new Ft. Collins temple before it is dedicated in October. It was absolutely gorgeous inside, but my favorite part by far were the windows. I've seriously never seen windows so beautiful! I can't wait until it's dedicated so that Chad and I can do some sessions there.
Eating popcicles with cousins.
Look at the Pokemon I caught! I bet you'll never find these ones or any that even come close to their cuteness! ;)
