The oldest two are off to camp this week. My oldest will be staying the night there and my middle one gets to go to day camp. The oldest is going to Kingdom Camp (only 30 minutes away) and she is so excited that this is the first year she gets to stay the night. They have to have completed 2nd grade to stay the night so it is a right of passage for the kids that go to our church and a real big deal. Then my middle one gets to go to the day camp at the same place so I do get to see my oldest every day when I drop off and pick up my middle one. It makes her being away a little easier. My middle one just turned 5 and she still likes her naps to needless to say she came home worn out but so excited.
So what do I do with all this time on my hands? Yep you guessed it, sew. The baby is still napping 2 times a day so there is plenty of time for me to do some sewing. I am going to make the girls 4th outfits to wear this weekend. I am also going to start planning our school year out, I figure that it is never to early to start planning. I will also start my list of things we will need for the year. I am getting excited.

I can't believe she is already 6 months old. She is rolling all over the place. Sitting up assisted. She is also pushing up on her arms and on her knees but not at the same time (thankfully). She is loud, she squeals and screams with delight and it is all the time. It is funny to watch her big sisters get frustrated with her about that but I remind them that it could be she was screaming and crying all the time. She is a very happy baby and rarely fusses. If she does it is because she wants to eat or sleep. She sleeps through the night (has been since 12 weeks old) and takes 2 naps a day. She is also my first baby with lots of hair. Her favorite toy to play with is a musical sea horse that lights up and she loves the linking rings. She is such a blessing to our family and we are all so thankful the Lord has blessed us with her.

I am going to post the same kind of post on my oldest daughter as I did my middle one. She is so very tender hearted, she already has a heart for the lost, she loves the Lord, she is smart, and she is an amazing dancer. She is just like me in so many ways. I am not such an amazing dancer and I learn from her heart for the lost so very often. Some of her favorite things.
Favorite Food: Fish
Favorite Book: Bad Kitty
Favorite TV Show: Garfield
Favorite Song: Here I Am To Worship
Favorite Movie: Shirley Temple
Favorite Thing To Do: Dance
Favorite Thing To Do With Daddy: Go out to eat on date

Favorite Drink: Dr. Pepper (She doesn't get it much...lol)
Favorite Toy: Kitty (from build a bear)
I should have posted this on her birthday but she was out of town. So here it is today.

OK now that school is out for the summer I am getting ready to enter my first year of homeschooling my older girls. I am very excited about this new adventure in our lives but gosh it just hit me and I am SCARED! I sat down this morning to figure our what I still need and WOW. I am going to be teaching my middle girl how to read this year and honestly that scares the pants off of me. LOL! So I am just being real here and I need to get my stuff together and my plan. I am excited about the freedom this year is going to provide but I need to get there first.
