Taking the training wheels off!

So, while in Charlotte visiting some friends, we took off Abby's training wheels. We had practiced a little at home, but she just took off! Here is a little clip to please your eyes of my big girl riding her bike all by herself.

Today was a good day. We had a lot of fun playing with friends and enjoying the nice weather. Now, I'm just hoping for some rain so that our newly planted grass will take off. I also went to CVS today and snagged some free stuff! Loving my new coupon savings. Everyone should do it, it will really change your way of spending. Goodnight!

Summer, here we come!

Today we had a great day. We went to Abby's school to help out in the classroom for a bit. I take Allyson and Audrey with me, which is great, but also very distracting! Next year, I'd like to find another mom to swap with perhaps. Anywhoo... when we left Abby's school, I met up with some friends down at the beach. All of the kids had a great time wading in the icy cold water and playing the sand. The beach wore them out, and we came out right after lunch for a nice long nap! Nothing beats taking your kiddos to the beach or pool, it wears them out!
We had a nice dinner and then I took Abby to the indoor pool here in our area to practice swimming for the swim team. She did really well, and hopefully will be quite the little baracuda this summer.
All in all, great day. Looking forward to another sunny, fun day tomorrow!

Out of the Mouth of Babes

Okay, so I am really going to get back into blogging. No, really. I want to use this blog not only as a place to share our life with my friends and family, but also as a journal. I plan to print these and keep them for my children so they can read them when they are older.

Some funny things my kiddos have said lately:

Abby:

Me: "Abby, do you know how this?" (holding up a dollar bill)
Abby: "Uuumm... oh yeah, that's Curious Washington!"


Allyson:

(playing with my tummy, which is a while other topic)

Allyson: "Here mommy, let me tuck in your shirt. " (tucks in my shirt, pats my belly)
"there you go little chubby chub!"

Allyson: "Goodnight mommy! If you see any tigers let me know and I'll shoot em'!"

I have no clue where that one came from! She talks a lot about tigers at bedtime. She's been doing this for a long time. Sometimes there are tigers under her bed and she can't go to sleep. I guess tonight she decided she was over being scared of those darn tigers, she'll just shoot them! Her grandfather would be happy!

I'm sure I'll come up with more later, but it's late and my brain isn't quite functioning. Had to get these down before I forgot!!
