Sweet Friends

There is something about these two little girls that are different. They just LOVE each other different then most toddler friendships. When they play together it is like they were meant to be friends. They share, they laugh, they dance, they play house, they both love Dora, and they both have older siblings. When you watch them play there is no fighting, arguing, or drama...which is not the norm for 3 year olds (especially girls). I'm glad Ainsley found sweet Haven.

Here are some pictures I took while we were dropping off their older siblings for their 1st day of school!

Far away friends.....

My friend Jennifer from Minnesota was here visiting her grandma this summer and we got to spend time with her and her 5 kids. She is a BLOGGER and has a great mommy blog; here is the link if you want to read it: www.mycharmingkids.net . The kids and I got to hang out, swim, and have treats. I always enjoy spending time with other mommies with lots of kids..... we just "get" each other. All 9 of the kids did great together...... they just played & played..... I just kept a good eye on them so they didn't break any of the fancy vases or glass stuff everywhere!

We LOVE our far away friends!

Some vaccine questions answered.....

After Luke had a reaction to his vaccines we have been asked by many people about vaccines. Tim and I both agree it is a total personal decision.

After looking at lots of research and praying through it we stopped vaccinating our kids. Today my friend posted this blog to her Facebook wall and thought it was a good place for people with questions to start. Please know we are not trying to persuade you but reading good research is always good when making big decisions. Here is the blog: http://www.regardingcaroline.com/vaccines

Ainsley's back in school....

Ainsley started back to school last week. It's sad to think that this is her last year at United Methodist because next year she will move over to Redlands Christian with the other 3 kids.

Here is her 1st day of school pics:Ainsley with her teacher, Mrs. Gina

My friend Andrea offered to have all 4 of our kids over for a little camp day at their house. The kids were so excited and were counting down the minutes until we got there. I was able to hang out with my friend Veronica that morning kid less. Here are some pictures Andrea took for me since she know I love pictures (I have the greatest friends).
