mom, i'm going on a mission when i get big.

those words speak to a mothers heart.

this weekend while we were camping coop told me the following.
"mom, i'm going on a mission when i get big."
"that is so great cooper, it will be so cool"
"yeah, i'm going to ride a bike and do tippy-wheelies all the time."
meaning riding on the back tire of his bike.

and i thought i was training a spiritul giant.
nope, just the next evil kenevil.

Catching up -

The last few weeks have been to much fun!! Gotta get ya'll caught up. June 15th Miss Maggie Marie turned 6 months old ~ where has time gone? She's rolling and singing and making the sweetest noises. It's funny how sweet and girly her little voice sounds. So different from my wild little men. The weekend before the 15th we went with Quin's family to Yellowstone. We stopped by in West (where Quin's sis Whitney is working) and then we went through the park. The boys loved it of course ... and Maggie traveled so well! We saw a bunch of wildlife, for a minute we thought that a dang buffalo was going to hit Rusty's car (lucky for us he was in front). We've also finished up the t-ball season. Our first soccer game is July 1st.

The 17th was Mr. Wyatt's 7th birthday. Here are some fun Wyatt Facts...
*he is the best worker boy -- he takes his gloves with him so he can help work and get dirty
*he is so sweet with Maggie - he's always so willing to help with her
*he'll be in 1st grade this year
*he is an OUTSTANDING athlete - he wants to play every sport and is is awesome at all of them
*he does his chores and take good care of Shorty (our mini). he is so dang cute riding him!
I love Wyatt so much and am so proud of him. It's been fun to see him grow up and turn into such a tough guy!!

Wyatt had soccer practice and a t-ball game on the night of his birthday, so lucky boy got everyone in the family to come watch him. He was in is element. He hates that they only let him run to 1st base, he's sure he should get a homerun every time. After the game we went to our house for cake and ice cream. Wyatt got some fun presents ... a cinch for his saddle and then Quin bought him a bb gun-I wa there, but it's Quin's project :). At least it's locked up unless the dad is home. Thanks for all the fam for coming!

We went camping in Kilgore last weekend ... SOOO much fun --- the boys were sure they were in heaven :) More about that to come!!

oh, what do you do in the summertime?

I love this time of year -- I love planting and growing things. I love being outside with the kids. I love t-ball (very entertaining). I love camping and spending time with family. Lucky for me it's early on in the season and I'm already living it up.
Yep, I'm lucky.

I should just upload those pictures, but I won't.

I soooo have some darling pictures to upload and put on here.
Today is not going to be that day.
Quin was gone last week (he got home late Sat. night) and I've been "summer cleaning". For me that means decluttering and putting things away so I have an excuse to redecorate.
I've decided that I may be addicted to lists. I have more lists of projects that I want to do than I will ever have time to do. Today's projects have been organizing the shelf and cupboards above the washer and dryer in the laundry room. Now I'm putting the things I want and use above there and moving Quin's things out to the shed. He doesn't use those things that often and I'm tired of having my cleaning stuff not have a real home. Should make things much nicer around here.

We start t-ball tonight ~ Coop said that he wants to hit the ball and not just play on the toys like he did in Mud Lake. We'll see how that goes. Wyatt has been us since before 6 this morning waiting for tonight. Should be an awesome summer!!
