This one is so funny. You can't really tell, but Cade is filthy dirty in his baseball clothes after practice. Wesleigh brought a big bag of bows out of her room and laid them all out on the table. She then started to put different bows up to Cade's head. She would decide which one she liked better (like I do to her). You can see Cade wasn't paying one bit of attention to her, he was watching tv. How funny is that?!?!
One of the boys helped her with this. She was in hog heaven.Hope you're having a great summer! We have enjoyed just hanging out and swimming. We'd better enjoy it now before it gets too hot!!

Yep...it's crawfish time. My boys have learned to love eating boiled crawfish, but these were HOT! Bryce and Braden ate all they could but would run to the ice chest for some ice to cool their lips.

Today was Braden's 5th grade awards day. I knew this day would be emotional because he has spent the past 7 years at this school. We are very close to his teachers and friends and it's hard to think that he won't be back. Braden will be in jr. high next year and he's also switching to a private school, so he won't be with this same group of kids next year. It was sad to say goodbye.
Braden and his teachers.
This teacher taught him kindergarten and 5th grade.
Of course, Miss W was a huge attraction. She wanted to make sure she was in this picture of Braden.
Braden won 3rd place in the math speed game competition for the 5th grade. This is his collection of trophys from the past 5 years. He has won 1st, 2nd or 3rd place every year! I'm so proud of him!!

This picture was taken the first time we saw this sweet face in person.
Taken 1 week ago after being home for 3 months.
Wesleigh has made so many strides since we got home. Her personality has really come out and she is definitely her mother's child! The biggest change we've had in this past month is her language. Just in the past few days has she started to use her language without repeating someone. She started by telling the boys "thank you" when they give her snacks. She will go to the bottom of the stairs and yell one of the boys' names to try to get them to come down. She initiates telling people "bye". Today in WM she started saying, "happy birthday" and then saying "yay!" with her hands raised. (she has a toy that has taught her that).
She loves seeing herself in pictures. Since we had our portraits taken, she's been looking at our family photo on the computer and points to everyone and says their name. So sweet. One reason I wanted to get those pics done when I did is because she loved to look at the different pics around the house. I wanted her to see herself in our family pics.
I can't believe we've only been home 3 months! She came running through the keeping room yesterday (brick floors). Richard and I looked at each other and said, "Can you believe how much better she is at that in only 3 months?". It is remarkable to see. What a blessing she is.
