I got my hair chopped off! I was debating whether I should grow it out or not. It is obvious which option won the debate. I figured it is summer so I will keep it short and then grow it out. My hair grows extremely fast.
These two are so fun! Here they are babysitting for a lady in our ward so she could come to a "music club" meeting at my house. Some friends and I decided to form a music club- kind of like a book club. We will meet once a month and listen to each other perform. This gives us incentive to practice and a chance to perform something other than sacred music. There are a lot of musical people around here which I am grateful for. I have been wanting to do this for a long time. We will see if we can keep it up during the school year as our schedule gets busier. For our first meeting we had a violist, clarinetist, vocalist and two piano solos.
Our sweet Sydney was down this week with a raging fever. When it just wouldn't go away I took her in to the doctor and it turns out she had a bladder infection. Here she is feeling much better after some medicine. We are happy to have her sparkling personality back!!
Here are these two in their matching Frozen shirts. :)
Here they are showing off their fun fabric headbands made at the Weaver reunion. Neither one of them will keep them on for too long.
It is difficult to take a picture of Elise because as soon as she realizes you are trying to take a picture she just tries to come and "see" it before you have a chance to actually take it...hence the blurry photos :)
The kids were in tennis and swimming lessons the past two weeks. Seth and Brenna do not really need swimming lessons anymore, but it is so inexpensive and they were with me anyway I decided to go ahead and sign them up. Their class just swam laps the entire 40 minute class...it was a great workout.
Sydney looks adorable in her swimsuit so I thought it would be a great idea to take a picture of her for the blog...but she didn't think it was a great idea :)
Woohoo! Look who is fourteen!!! I cannot be old enough to have a fourteen year old!
(So, I forgot to buy candles....this happens a lot. We made do with a #1 and four candles (yes they are pink) He was a great sport about it. I will be sure to get candles for the next birthday coming up :)
We are so excited the Indianapolis Temple Open House is occurring right now. We went as a family Friday night. It is just beautiful. The kids really felt how special it was. Grant summed it all up when he said, "Wow, that is an event for my journal."
oops this picture is out of place- this was an outdoor water activity at pack meeting.
Seth and Brenna have the unique opportunity of participating in the Youth Temple Cultural Celebration. Our stake is dancing a square dance to Hoedown by Aaron Copeland. They are really enjoying the practices. I love seeing their enthusiasm for the temple.
