So Far

Well this is what we have been up to so far in September and the end of August. I guess September is almost over. I just had several hodge podge pictures to share, so here goes. Hope you all are doing well! Mya started a dance class. We thought it would be a good outlet for her energy and something girly for her to do. So far she likes it except for the tights:)
We stopped to visit my Grandma not too long ago! 4 generations!

Granny painted the kids faces while Calvin and I were out of town. The kids loved it. A good idea for a birthday party I do believe!

Mya's first day of PDO. She goes one day a week and is enjoying it.

My little artist, hard at work and apparently a little hungry too!

We are working on the deck and Calvin put the swing really low.....the kids were enjoying it and I of course couldn't resist a picture!

Mya finally has shown an interest in a bike so we got one that her and her friends could ride in!

This is what happens when I am at work. Kind of funny but I was not too happy about the clothes they were wearing. ( I know mean old Mom)

We took an impromtu hay ride around the neighborhood the other night. It was so much fun. We picked up 5 other people along the way. The kids loved it.

Mya got her hair cut for the first time. It looks alot better. Not so stringy!

Some of our friends gave Cal and I some tickets to the Colts game. We had a great time, except they lost.

We took our annual camping trip with some great friends! It was a blast!

So this was our attempt to get a family picture on the beach but as you can guess things never go as we plan. For starters, we were late getting back from dinner ( hence the dark pictures where you can barely tell we were on the beach). Crew has a black eye, Mya has a bruise on her chin and a fat lip, the kids were tired, Mya made Crew cry and then she got in trouble and was crying, and Calvin doesn't like to take pictures so he isn't very tolerant, and Ayden was perfect:) Sounds like fun, right. Well this is what we got. I have learned to lower my expectations and sometimes it is fun because you can see the kids personality in the pictures. Enjoy! This one is my favorite....typical Mya, of course I wish her mouth wasn't hanging open but its usually open anyway, right. Crew would normally be smiling but he was the most tired!
I love this age. They get excited about the littlest things!

The boys are probably wondering what their crazy sister is doing now!

Me and my man!

Tried to take a pic with Grandma and Grandpa too.

Sweet little Ayden:)

This makes me laugh, because Ayden just sits there and does what you ask and the other two are on the run:)

Not too bad.

I love these kids!
