This week Dave and I celebrated 9 years of marriage. It's been a little busy around here but we did have a chance to celebrate.
Ben lost another tooth. The adult tooth has already started to poke out on the top. There are 2 others that have been wiggling for awhile so it's just a matter of time until he has more missing teeth.
One of the activities that has been keeping us busy is cub scouts. Dave volunteered to be Ben's den leader. So far they had a camp out near the school grounds. Ben is looking forward to building a rocket, shooting a BB gun, archery, and spending some time with his friends from school. Oh, and if you like popcorn, we have some deals for you!
On our actual anniversary, we did something we don't usually do...take all the kids to a nice restaurant. This was the first time for the boys to go to Olive Garden. They did fairly well and enjoyed the food.
Afterwards we headed to Home Depot to pick out paint for Abby's room. I'll post more pictures of that soon.
What a cute little cupcake! Sam and Abby loved driving around the store in the cart. The workers loved her cuteness in the store.
We took probably the last trip to the garden on Friday. The boys enjoyed a bike ride and Izzie enjoyed a run.
We finally were able to have soccer practice today! It's been an entire month due to the rain. This evening we went to a local church and spent some time with our new International Friends, Ravi and Yanyo. We are enjoying learning about the differences from America, India, and China. The boys have done really well with going to events with college students from other countries. My hope is to show our children how big of a world we live in and that although we look different, we can be friends. This program and the exploring we have been doing in the area have really helped me to be at peace with our move to the greater Lafayette area.
Abby had fun crawling around and squealing. It always amazes me when people comment how cute she is when she's screaming because all I can think is that I'm slowly loosing my hearing because of it!
