I think one of the joys of motherhood is sending your chilren off to school. As the school year comes to an end, I always find myself anxious for it to end. I want the kids at home with me and no school responsibilities. And as the summer starts to end, I am pulling my hair out counting down to the new school year. But for this moment, I am excited that today is the last day of school!!!

Logan does an amazing job with his. He stays in it for naps always and usually gets up once (with Trent's help) at bed time to pee. He is really good.
Laycee, on the other hand, has been a battle. In fact, she doesn't even sleep in it anymore lol. I gave her 2 days but she was constantly getting up. So I put the crib back together, but then she was screaming that she had to pee. So, I took it back apart and decided that I would try a different approach. I put her in a diaper at night and it has really cut down on how many times she gets up. BUT, she doesn't want to sleep alone, so I put her to bed, she gets up once to pee after I put her to bed and then crawls in bed with Haylee. They are like two peas in a pods since they started sleeping together. Since Haylee doesnt' complain, I figured it was ok.

He would only wet his hands.
Trent, on the other hand, thought it was great fun.
Haylee was a little cautious, but eventually started pouting when it was time to get out.
We have since emptied it and set it aside because a storm came in and the weather went from 80 to 60, but I know when it warms up again, we will be back in the water.

Haylee thought he would look more authenic with the eye patch.
The kids rarely play with Mr. Potato Head, so I thought it was great when they decided to play with it. I never realized it would turn into this.

While all our goodies were cooking and I was making lunch, the kids wanted a snack. Laycee didn't want to do anything but eat watermelon and grapes.
It was time for clean up so Trent is picking up our now overflowing bucket of balls.
I know these pictures are out of order, but here the kids are playing with Dave. They were so happy to have some time with him since he has been gone so much lately. They started playnig at 8 in the morning and didn't stop until noon! They played baseball, and then Logan played everything else lol. Soccer, Basketball (not pictured), golf and football.
And for dinner we had hamburgers with the rest of the goodies. Hope you all had a great memorial day as well!

Tonight when I check on the kids unloading the dishwasher, I hear Haylee singing along with her new IPod and Trent putting earplugs in his ears lol. Gotta love them kids!

These are pictures from Haylee's special day. Dave was gone and I wanted to be sure she had a special birthday. She loves social attention, but we don't know many people for a party. This was her first birthday ever in school, so we played hookie (well I checked her out early because she wanted to bring cupcakes to school lol), went bowling, and went to the movies. Then came home for a small quiet time (nap for the little ones) amd headed to Red Robins for dinner. After coming home, we put the ice cream in the maker, did cake and presents and then completed her day with a little High School Musical. It was such a great day.

Today is Haylee's birthday. I can't believe she is 7 already! Wow, where did the time go? I love my Haylee so much. I really don't know how I would survive without her. She knows when I need a hug. She knows when to make me smile. She knows when to irritate me. She knows when I need help. She is an amazing big sister. Her and Laycee share such a special bond that began before Laycee joined our family. Haylee couldn't wait for her baby sister. She is so bright and enjoys learning and pleasing others. She can be a struggle sometimes but she is My Haylee Girl and I love her.
Often, In My Daughter's Eyes, I see me and for that, I am grateful. I love that she is sensitive to spiritual things and the feelings of others. She is such a light in this world and I can't wait to see how she continues to grow and mature.

Since I did the boys also, Laycee didn't want to be left out, so here are her baby curls. There isn't much you can do with hers because she has minimal hair as it is, but this is the start.
This is the end. I cut it again a few days later after a bath and I was able to see what it looked like. It is kind of a boyish cut but it looks really cute on her now.

However, I never see 2 little kids in diapers now that they are potty training. So this was fun to catch that one last glimpse of twindom before they grow up and they are considered just two kids again.
I love their laughs on days like these.
