Activities…

We are busy with our winter/spring activities. Everyone gets to do one sport/activity because mommy and daddy only have so much time and so many hours in a day and we have said that we are not spending every evening in a car driving somewhere. And Paxton and Coppelia’s activity is preschool because….honestly we spend…

School Decisions…

It’s that time of year where we start making decisions for next year. And while Paxton and Coppelia are both nearly the same age with only 10 weeks separating them they are miles apart as far as school readiness for next year. And that’s ok. They are their two own little people and while they…

That Tooth Fairy….

The Tooth Fairy seems to have an issue with our house. Mainly the Tooth Fairy seems to miss the message that someone lost a tooth and is expecting her to come. I don’t know….maybe the Tooth Fairy gets tired and goes to bed early. Well whatever it is last week Edric lost a tooth and…

Meet #2….

Leighton had his second meet this past weekend down in Castle Rock which is south of Denver. We had to be there at 7:30 which meant we left the house EARLY. I actually had an adoption camp meeting that morning as well so I only got to stay for part of the meet but Clint…

Football Bracket…

So we aren’t huge football fans in our house. Basically we record the Bronco’s game and then on Sunday evenings after dinner and bath we watch 30-45 minutes of it and call it good. The kids would tell you that they are huge fans but I’m not sure they could name many of the players…

Air Force College Meet…

On Saturday we got to go down to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs with Leighton. Originally he was suppose to have a meet down there but the meet filled up super quick and his team didn’t make it in. We heard that there was a college meet and decided to head down anyway…

Meeting Their Cousin….

Tuesday evening the kids got a chance to meet Johanna their new baby cousin. Heidi and Josh are staying during the week at my parent’s house because their house is under re-construction. The kids were very excited to meet her, but on the drive over to my parents house we reviewed a number of times…

First Meet of the Season…

On Sunday Leighton had his first gymnastics meet of the season. it was the big home meet too which was fun because my parents came to watch and so did Leighton’s good friend Kieran. And being the first meet of the season it went like one would expect, some good things and some rough things…

Making Things…

When Leighton went to the Mikulak Gymnastics Clinic back in November he took Clint’s shirt that he wears to meets and got it signed and also got his clinic shirt signed and asked if I would make them into pillows for his bed. So Monday afternoon he and I sat down and went to work….
