Family Time

I love summer time. I love spending time together. Here are summer summer time photos.

She Loves Her Brother

Jada loves Jackson. She has learned that she is strong enough to carry him, which freaks me out every time I catch her carrying him around. She's the first one to volunteer to play with Jackson when I need someone to keep him entertained. She talks to him in a super high pitched voice that kills me. It really sweet. 

Josiah vs The Tooth Fairy

Josiah last two teeth this week! A top tooth and a bottom tooth. 
 I took this picture when he lost his top tooth. The next day he lost one of his lower teeth, which is good because it was getting crowded. This makes a total of four teeth.

Jada vs the Chair

Last weekend Jada was running and ran right into a chair. It was a hard hit. I think it's her first black eye. I'm not sure what it is about her, but she is always the one to get hurt. I think it's because she is our craziest, wildest child. She is tough though! 

Juliet vs the Stye

Poor Juliet got her first Stye. It's finally started to drain, but there for a while it looked awful. She didn't start complained about it until after it started draining. She's a trooper. It's looking so much better now.

We have recovered from the flu! We have been enjoying family, friends, trips to the lake, walks, bug catching, a new puppy, and lots of outside time this summer.

Justin's Grandma and her husband came to visit. The kids had a blast with them. The kids were sad to see them go. We've been to the lake a few time. The kids got to go fishing the second time we went. They had a great I've. Hopefully they will be able to catch a fish this year. We also had a wonderful Independance Day. The kids loved the sparklers. Even Jameson loved them. We got together with Justin's parent and had an early dinner. After dinner, we set off some fire works. The kids loved watching them. It was our favorite Fourth of July together since we've been married. 
Now we are enjoying all the rain. 


Where is Jameson

          Juliet can fish like nobody's business. She is quiet, patient, and doesn't move around.

Everybody VS The Flu

Last Saturday Josiah, Jada, Juliet and I started feeling sick. The next day the four of us were really sick. We had fevers, body aches, cough and congestion. It was miserable. Monday Justin had to go to work. It was a long day. The three older kids had high fevers I was trying to keep down, while taking care of an infant, while feeling absolutely awful myself. Jameson was still feeling ok so I sent him over to Grammy's. By Thursday Justin and Jameson came down with it.
Thursday just so happened to be Josiah's birthday. It did not go as I planned. We were all still feeling yucky. Grammy made his cake for him and cooked tacos for us. Even though he didn't feel good, the night before his birthday he found a specific shirt and pants he wanted to wear. He washed and dried them, and as soon as he woke up the next morning, he put them on. It was so sweet. 
Here we are a whole week later. The kids and I are feeling a lot better. We do have a lingering cough. Justin is still down. Baby Jackson has stayed healthy this whole time. I have to credit that to breastfeeding.
7 Years old!

                                                           Feeling sick, but still smiling

Jada VS The Bookshelf

I was in the laundry room folding clothes when I heard a thunk and some crying. Around here there are a lot of thunks and a lot of crying. It's usually never serious. I wasn't concerned, until I heard, "Jada has blood dripping!" I ran to Jada and found lots of blood coming from her head. I could not find where it was coming from at first. Then I found it. I immediately knew it needed stitches. I do not handle these situations well. I almost called 911 however, I was able to get a hold of Justin and he called his mom, Penny, to come over and take a look. Meanwhile, I got the blood flow stopped, and I made another call to find someone to come watch the kids while I took Jada to the ER. After Penny looked at it, and Pam arrived to watch the kids, we loaded up Jackson and Jada. Penny followed  me to the ER. By the time we got loaded up in the car, Jada had already stopped crying. By the time I was driving down the road,  she was singing. I met Justin at the ER, and we went in with Jada while Penny stayed out in the car with Jackson.
When we got into the ER, it was packed. We had to wait to get a room. After we got a room, they put some topical numbing solution on her wound. Then they cleaned it out. She barely even flinched during the process. A little while later the Dr. came in and put two staples in her head. She didn't even cry. She whimpered and held my hands tight, but she didn't cry. She's one tough girl! We finished up with a trip to get ice cream.
She is doing well and still wild. The two staples in her head haven't slowed her down one bit. She freaks me out with all the crazy things she does.
So what happened? Well, when Jada was making her bed, she went to step off  her bed, lost her balance and fell backwards onto the edge of the bookshelf. She recreated the experience for me when we got home from the ER. I thought she he hit the corner of the bookshelf, but it was one of the shelves on the bookshelf that she hit. I'm so glad she is ok.
