Camp Grady Spruce

Kate had the opportunity to go to 4th grade camp a couple weeks ago with all of the other 4th graders at her elementary school. Brandon went last year and had a blast so Kate has been looking forward to it all year long. We packed all her gear, clothes, and bedding and she was off! Here she is with Megan, Carli, and our neighbor, Kailee, who we take to school with us.

Weird picture of me with her, Brooke, and Carli. Sheesh, I look awful.Kate and her friend, Gabby
Goodbye hug from DaddyKate and some girls in her class. Emily, on the far left, is one of her bffs.It was a quiet week without Kate around. We missed her gorgeous smile and contageous laugh, but I do have to admit there was quite a bit less arguing and fighting that week. ;)

Friday afternoon it was time to pick her up! We made little signs to welcome her home.Megan and her sign . She was very proud of it. :) She did a great job.
Carli and "my"/her signHere come the buses!and she was home!Happy sisters...

She had an awesome time. She learned a ton, had a ton of fun, ate a ton of food, and missed home a ton, too. ;) She rode a horse named "Charlie." She had been looking forward to the horseback riding the most. She can't wait to ride again! I believe it was as fun and successful week for Kate and she will always remember her week at Camp Grady Spruce.

The next Monday she got her braces on and her expander in...another adventure begins! Post coming soon...

Photo of the Day

I need to try to post at least a photo a day so I don't stay so far behind on posting. We had fun outside last night and Brooke had a blast playing with the neighbor's dog. Here's an image I caught that was perfect for how she felt. She LOVED being so close to this sweet dog!

Budding Artist

We were so excited to learn that Megan had a painting put in the Keller ISD art show! I just love her painting and am so proud of her! She was thrilled, too! She is growing into such a beautiful and talented young lady. She is finishing 2nd grade and can't wait to be in 3rd next fall. She is looking forward to her 8th birthday next month and will be baptized in July, which is something she has been looking forward to for so long!
