Life continues

I can usually tell how long it's been since I've posted a family update as it is usually the same as when the camera was downloaded last. Top of the park was the beginning of things on this last download and here a couple of cute pics from Superhero Night.

Also in the last twoish weeks I've finished doing my nursing classes and am awaiting my clinical weekend. Kevin is picking up mass amounts of overtime. And, the kids continue to be just as cute as ever. =)

This past Monday was the start of swimming lessons for both kids and coincidentally for me as well. Because an adult needs to hang with Colby, I don't know how well Mason is doing, but he keeps telling me that he's having fun. Colby is really loving it! She can navigate the side wall wonderfully and loves to throw her toy and then "swim" towards it. I personally am freaked out to do the whole dunk her under part that is supposed to be coming this next week. She seems a bit old for the blow on her face trick and she refuses to hold her breath. The laughing from fun makes it hard to just dunk her a bit as her mouth is wide open.

Monday night was Mason's final soccer game, rescheduled from the previous weds as the fields were too wet. Mason played well. He definitely started getting into things more than he did at the beginning at the season. I think his confidence increased and he became more comfortable in his skills as things progressed. At any rate, it was wonderful to watch him get into the game.

Tuesday we deemed a lake day and headed out to the Freeman cottage to hang out for the day. After 15m of canoeing, the kids decided they were done and wanted to go back to cottage. The following 45m was all about telling mommy how much we wanted to go back to the cottage, which direction I should be heading to get back to the cottage and whether or not I was actually pointing the boat in the right direction to get back to the cottage. =) After canoeing we played in the water along the shore; it was like bathwater! The water felt great and Colby had a blast splashing around. Mason enjoyed it for bit before heading into the cottage for another snack. (I'm pretty sure we have a growth spurt coming on that one.) After swimming and cleaning things up we headed home for dinner and to roast marshmallows over the grill.
(I swear the tank top wasn't that big when I put it on in the AM)

Today we went to Grandville for Laura's baby shower. It was a grand time, well, it was after Colby received some motrin. (Before that she was a bit warm, flushed, grumpy and unsoothable.) Food was good, cake was yummy (the only part of lunch that Colby ate) and the company was wonderful. Laura is nearing 8m along and looks fab! And though I'm not a minivan person, her new wheels do look very nice.
On the way home from the baby shower we arrived home just in time to see the balloon launch. Here's a pic from the car.

And this is the view from our porch. There are some good things about our townhome.

No shame

Ok, ok, I know, it's another ad type thingy. But the aprons are super cute and I'm hoping to win one and well... ya'll get to benefit from looking at an adorable apron. I promise that once I have some real free time I will post stuff that pertains to our family and how life is going. As for now, aside from a pertussis exposure with a corresponding cough that employee health states isn't related but is going to treat anyway, life is going well. =)

Anyone need gdiapers??

Hey all. Gdiapers has a sweet deal going on right now and I thought that I'd share. They have a new "everyday" g-pack that contains 6 g-dipes in vanilla and orange. With my magical code, you can get all 6 for only $40 (going for $70). It's a super deal!!

Anyway, I know I sound a bit like a tv sales program. It's just a great deal and I'm hoping that someone out there can benefit as with potty-training, our g-days are coming to an end.

Code: g963Freeman

Happy g-Shopping!
More on the family later.

Last soccer game

The time has come, it's the last soccer game of the season. Weds night at 6p out at field 6. Hopefully we won't get rained out! Since the haircut Mason's game has been quite a bit more fun to watch. =)

Mason update

For Mason's last day of school his class had a picnic and Colby and I got to attend and hang out with all the kids. It was nice seeing Mason interact with all of his friends. The picnic turned out really well and I think all the kids had fun.

This is Mason's teacher. (Well, and the kids. Colby wouldn't let me get one of just Mason and Mrs. Devine.)

And here is the the kids being cute at the picnic. They really DO love each other!

As far as I know, Mason has passed kindergarten and I now have a first grader. It's weird thinking that I have a first grader now. All in all, he had a great year. I'm looking forward to a couple pajama days, though, sad to lose some one on one time with the little one.

Wednesday was the big haircutting day. To remind you of what it looked like before and how long it was...

And, here is of course the picture that you all have been anxiously waiting for...

After washing the bits of hair off (and of course Colby also had to play in the shower), the kids ran around in their towels and well... looked just adorable! Man they can ham it up for the camera when they want to.

The haircut did wonders for Mason's soccer game. It was his best game yet! He was actually getting in there and going for the ball and running up and down the field... it was a lot of fun to watch him get into things.

And of course, Colby had a fun time at the game as well.
