Swim lesssons

Sawyer's first year in swim lessons and we started him in level 2.
 He worked so hard and did so good...
 And he was super close to passing but just couldn't get the front crawl down.
 He will definitely get it done next year.  I was very proud of him, but he was sad.
But hearing that Jonnie didn't pass after 4 times made him feel better-haha.

Cora talk

Cora is growing up so fast these days.  I always think I will remember all the cute things she's says, but realistically I will have forgotten them all in about a month after she's says them.  So, I thought I would jot a few down here to look back on and laugh at some day.  She is definitely my sweet, sassy, independent girl and some (most) of these quotes reflect that.

"Sawyer, stop attituding me!"

"I isn't" with her hand on her hip.

"I don't care about your business!"

She says suncream for sunscreen.

"Ahhh, I'm so fustrated!"

Future soccer star

Sawyer's first year in soccer and he LOVED it!  What a great sport as he ran non-stop the entire time.
 I really hope he continues it because it's fun to watch!

 I also have to brag a little as he is REALLY good :)

Good job, Sawyer!

My baby is two!

Cora is two!  Wasn't she just born?  She is at such a fun age and is so excited for her birthday and birthday party.  She wanted a butterfly cake and she wanted it to be pink, so I made a small cake and added some cupcakes shaped into a butterfly-she loved it!

The older kids had fun decorating and putting up balloons.  Dex was waiting for the guests to arrive.
The part she was looking forward to was singing happy birthday to her.  She was totally beaming and even sang happy birthday to herself-it was so, so precious.  I could hardly sing as I had a lump in my baby is 2.

Time for gifts! She honestly made this face for everything gift.  She was just so shocked and thrilled with everything she got.  Once again-adorable.

She kept changing into her new clothes.  The girl LOVES clothes!

I tried to get a picture with the birthday girl, but she wasn't having any of it.  This is the best I could do.

Super happy girl and it was the best day ever for her.
We love you, sweet girl.
