Yesterday we had two dr appts for the kids. Just their annual checkups. We found a new doctor and was anxious to see how she was with the kids. Several things surprised me when I as there. First, they wanted Jaden to pee in a bowl on the potty. He has never had to give a urine sample. Of course, he couldn't go, so we didn't do it anyway. They checked his eyesight, it is good. They even tried to check Cassidy's eyesight. She didn't really want to do it. She acted shy. They had to get undressed and put a gown on. Jaden did not like that part! Wow, he didn't want the dr to see him in his underwear! hahaha. Anyway, to make it short, I didn't get a good impression of the dr. She would ask questions instead of telling me things. Ex: How much milk do they drink?, How is homeschooling going? Do you like it? How often do you do school? I told her we thought Cassidy seemed further ahead and she asked why. When I responded, she cut me off. What dr did they go to before, and then acted like she knew him ( I guess that MIGHT be possible). And the first thing, she acted like she remembered Jaden when she came in, but she had never seen him. We went to a different dr two weeks ago. Then, she proceeded to say that both of my kids have a heart murmur (which no one has ever told us!) and that Jaden's needs checked. Also, she said Jaden needs speech therapy for his r's. We will be taking him to the appt to get his heart checked, but I am going to try to work with him on his r's. Anyway, that was all very interesting!
Then, we went to the candy store( next door! I just love that place. I didn't get any candy but saw several cool things I wanted! Like a cupcake necklace, sunglasses, cupcake bracelets, and all kinds of jewelry! I could spend a fortune there!
After the candy store, we took Cassidy for her very first haircut! She loved it. She got to sit on a horse and watch Dora! She now has bangs! She looks so cute!

Been awhile

So sorry it has been awhile. I am spending so much less time on the computer and more time with my family and keeping up on housecleaning (although that will never be done!).
I took the kids to Lowes last week for a project. They got to make treasure chests! They can't wait until next week when they get to go make something else! What a great way Lowe's gives back to the community.

We enjoyed church again this Sunday! The kids also loved it. We plan on going to their class this Sunday to learn how we can become more connected with the church. I can't wait!
Today, we had a field trip to Traders Point Creamery. It was not what I expected, but it was nice to get out an spend some time with others. I don't think we will be going back, but I can't wait to visit Zionsville again! They have the neatest little shops and restaurants. I also noticed on the way to the highway they had some fabulous chain stores. I can't wait to go back. And it is not that far! Woohoo!

We don't have much going on the rest of the week, but Jaden has a birthday party to go to on Saturday! Can't wait!

Cute laundry!

After the 5k on Sunday, we had a nice relaxing day. I made a yummy 4th of July dessert and we enjoyed some fireworks from the back of our suv! It was so much fun. I didn't even mind the rain!

Yesterday, the kids and I washed the car and played outside! We even found a trail close to our house! That was fun!

The kids also discovered the fun of sitting in the dryer! LOL

Today, we met some friends at the park for lunch. Jaden was being so good with the girls! What a guy!

Happy 4th of July and a 5k!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful July 4th! We started the day off early with a 5k run! It was my first!!! And, definitely not my last! Loved it! Here are some pics:
As you can tell in the above picture, Jaden has been very sick. He has been sick for 3 days! It started with vomiting, and he still has diarrhea. He has been warm, but the thermometer has shown no fever. If he is still sick by Monday, he will be going to the doctor. I miss my energetic buddy!
The run was amazing. We ran on asphalt, grass, sand, and gravel. We even ran on a wooden bridge. What a great way to start our holiday. I feel so proud of myself. I celebrated by having a light mocha frappuccino afterward. MMMMM
Happy 4th of July! Happy Birthday America!
