When the Lights Go Out



What happens when there is a power outage?  You make the most fun of it as possible.  Watch a movie on the laptop, light every candle in the house and have a sleepover with all the C's in the family room.  Sometimes an inconvenience turns into a blessing in disguise.  It was so much fun, we might pretend that we have another electricity free evening very soon.

Summer Fun











Summer is flying by.  My kids are busy, and they keep their Mama and Daddy even busier.  We are loving the weather and the daily swims.  Gracie loves the pool, she chases every ball that we toss her way, but her favorite thing of all, is chasing her people.  Claire is off to her Sophomore year tomorrow.  Just a few more weeks of summer for the rest.  We plan to enjoy it each and every day.  Gymnastic meets have begun, and soccer season is almost here.  Every day is an adventure. 
Favorite pics?  Viny ready for soccer practice, and Gracie with an eye on what Shaelani is eating.

Neatness counts







These little girls love to have fun.  They also make very big messes.  So here is our new idea.  Playing outside, not in the bedroom.  They had a blast and it all got put back neatly!  We had a great weekend.  Shaelani was able to stay a few days with her buddy Sienna last week while Mom went to NY.  It's good to be home, and to have everyone home together.
