Our Church's Relay For Life team is raising money to decorate bags in honor of Charli and another friend, Andy, from our church. It is humbling to see all that people are willing to do to honor your child. Words can't explain it!
Harper will be turning one in a few days,when did I become the mom of a 1-year old and a 4-year old?! I imagine my next post will be of our big boy and his birthday celebrations! :-)
seriously, charli pops up in the most unusual places! yep...this would be Charli in the refrigerator.
harper enjoyed the slip-n-slide that Charli got for her birthday from Aunt Jen! He didn't attempt to walk down it alone, but did have a great time!
Charli had a great time as well!! Sadly for our yard, we have gotten about 8" of rain this week so the grass was a mess after our playdate with the slip-n-slide! The water was cold, the air was hot...and of course the time was too short!
so pretty :-)
monkey see -- monkey do at our house. Charli was shaking her cup of chocolate milk and harper thought he needed to dot he same with his cup. His sippy cup didn't have a stopper in it - and it went all over!! He will copy about anything she does - lovely.
she is a great-big helper! She can shave about 10 minutes off our mornings if we are all having a good day!
Chad took the kids to the shop to play Saturday morning! Charli is getting more confident on her 4-wheeler and it is obvious that she will be loving this for a long time!
Charli at vacation bible school this week! She had so much fun!!
Charli and her friend Lily from VBS and Sunday school
Charli was SO excited to have Harper and Daddy at her program!
this was such a proud moment for me! She was a great singer and dancer! She really did a good job, as did the other kids! It was an unusual feeling to drop her off Monday morning for VBS. I remember years ago realizing that these milestones would be big for us...her first day at kindergarten, first preschool snack, vacation bible school, sleep over, etc -- these are things that I knew would all happen as we got closer to her "5 years out". And, these milestones will not be taken for granted at this house - that is for sure!!
Harper was excited to be there to support his big sister too! He loved the music and loved the open space to walk around!
