Brady had his first swim lesson today at the YMCA. Every time we have had him in an organized sport I am always so proud at how well he listens to the coach and does what he is told when he is told. He is gracious and kind and so full of joy! He was by no means the most skilled swimmer, but he sure did great at the things I think are most important. Now, am I gullible enough not to believe that we someday might have a child who won’t sit still and listen and is cranky and rude..not at all! But for now, I am very very thankful that for some reason God chose to bless us with such an amazing kid!
We have had a great summer so far. I got to go back to camp for all twice this summer right at the beginning of the summer. I did MDA camp with Curt (thus the dorky baseball picture of us!) and then I got to do Camp Star Trails with a girl who was in my class this last year. It was her first year so I told her I would go if she would. We had an amazing time and of course, camp brought out in her a child I had not seen all year!
Here are a few pics from MDA camp. This was Curts 21st year to volunteer with them! I love that about him! Such a big heart for these kids and this organization…and he gets to dress up like a hula girl! Where else could he do this because we sure can’t afford Hawaii!
This was a student in one of my classes this year as well! It was his second year at camp. I didn’t get to see him much, but it was special to be there with him too.
My sister in law brought up Brady and his cousins one day! He loves camp already! Here he is greeting the campers as they come to lunch. Curt does this each meal and Brady LOVES to do it with him! He gets so excited. Yes, he is standing next to a super hero…aka Dr Seth!
And here is my AMAZING cabin of girls! They were awesome and I can’t wait to see them next year! Go cabin 16
Here is a picture of my student and I going off of the zipline together. She refused to go earlier in the week, but I got her up there at the end of the week and she loved it! Keep in mind, this girl used a walker all year long in my class! I love Camp For All!
Then there was Father’s Day! These boys are my heart. I love them so much!
Fourth of July is always great in Pearland because my family comes in for Brady’s birthday and then we go watch an awesome fireworks show at the Rig (Pearland High School Football Stadium)
All in all…so far so good for the summer. I’ve started my online Grad School, we got a new computer (which is why I will now blog more because it is so much easier! I’ve traveled with my best friend Angela and I’m in the best shape ever…now if I could just get pregnant things would be even better!

So, in the span of 2 hours we went from body shaking fear of clowns to being best friends with them. Isn't life funny! So, now we are going to work on my friend Angela. She's in her 30's and still wouldn't do the hokey pokey with a clown!

Brady and I after the Wiggles concert...
Curt and I got to take Brady to The Wiggles concert today. It was so much fun to see him so happy. He danced and sang and laughed. There really is no greater joy than to see your kids so stinkin happy. We had great seats too. We aren't used to those kind of seats, but I'm so glad we did.
One of the songs said something about being like a snake so the kids procedded to copy the Wiggles and crawl on the floor.
One of my favorite pics. Brady was copying everything they were doing. He had most all of the songs and movements memorized.
Yelling at one of the Wiggles (Sam) who was walking down the aisle toward him.
