Patriot Day

Elliot's school does a 9/11 tribute every year which I think is pretty cool. They invite local firefighters, police officers, EMT and veterans to attend and be honored. I love that they're teaching the children to love America and to look up to our public servants. The scouts did the raising of the flag. The kids sang the National Anthem and read a tribute to the victims of 9/11.

Big Rocks Park

We found a new place to visit. Big Rocks Park is located in Glen Rose and is only 1 hour away. This place is cool because you can just let the kids splash around. In most places it only hits to your ankles. There is 1 spot that it goes up to your waist, so I feel it gives you variety. The kids loved it. And when you get tired of the water, you can climb giant rocks.

Perry's 1st Day of Preschool

Today was Perry's 1st ever experience with Preschool. She's going to Miss Lydia's house 1 day a week for 2 hours. She was a little nervous when I dropped her off, but loosened up when she saw her friend, Ellis. And by the time I picked her up, she was walking around like she owned the place.

Davis' 1st Day of Preschool

Davis was pretty excited about starting preschool this year. Especially since his best bud, Van is in his class. He just finished his first week and he still wants to go back. So that's saying something.

We said we weren't going to go on a vacation this summer since we had just moved and had a baby. However, we couldn't resist taking off to Colorado for a quick trip. This time we went to Evergreen which is about 45 minutes outside of Denver. It was a cute little town and very pretty. The first day we got there, we headed over to Evergreen Lake, which is really a large pond, and rented a Trike and a canoe. Day 2 we went to some state park to hike around there. It had lots of cliffs and big boulders. Our afternoon hike was in the forest, my preferred location. I just love all the tall trees. Day 3 we hiked the Red Rocks. The kids liked this one the best. Flatter trails and they were free to roam a bit more. Overall we had an ok time. Lane and I were regretting bringing the kids. It was constant whining. What kids don't like to explore outside? Apparently ours. Davis informed me on the last day that it would be his final hike. He said, "This is the last hike! I'm done hiking after this." I guess 4 hikes in 3 days is a bit too much for kids. All in all, they still had a good time.

Davis the Baseball Player

I have been wanting to sign Davis up for t-ball for a while now and I feel like he's finally getting to the right age for it. He's on the Royals. I'm still not sure if he likes it or not. When I ask him what he thinks, he just says, "good". So far he's only had 2 games. I feel like he's doing pretty good. He goes after the ball and throws it pretty well. Now we just need to work on him running to the right bases:)
