This and That

Kara Brooke's new favorite breakfast food....ICE CREAM!!!  She loves ice cream and thinks its the best  breakfast food ever!!!  Is it bad that I let her eat it, I mean it is milk, right?

The weather has heated up and we are looking for ways to cool off!!  Kara Brooke got this pool for her birthday and the girls have enjoyed it so much.

A couple of weeks ago we went to see Kaylee get  her honor at Honor's Day.  She was one out of four in her class that stayed on the Principals list ( all A's) all year long!!!  Such a huge accomplishment and she makes us so proud!!!  So hard to believe that she is going to be a 4th grader this fall and she will be 10 in a few days...where oh where does the time go???

Notice that Kaylee does not have her glasses on????  She is now wearing contacts!!  I can't believe it, I can't believe that I actually have a child enough to sport contacts!  She has really done great with them too.  She was having trouble playing ball in the sun with her glasses on and really needed to be able to wear sun glasses so Nana suggested that we get her contacts with her prescription that is the same as her glasses.  We went to the eye Dr. to get fitted for contacts and Kaylee's eye's had changed dramatically in just 10 months.  I could not believe it, with her glasses on out of her left eye she could only see the E and then the next line down on the chart!!!  I stood there in amazement, disbelief and felt very sad that she couldn't see any better than that with her glasses on.  She had not been complaining or anything...bless her heart, she said she knew she could see better with her glasses on and just thought that was as good as it got.  After she got her contacts with the right prescription, you should have seen the smile on that girls was like we seriously gave her the world!!!

I love that girl...what a blessing she is!!!

Memorial Day we just hung out at the pool at Nana and Papaw's house.  We had a very relaxing day and we are so thankful for past, present and future military men and women that fight for our freedom!!
