He's a Bear Through and Through!

Camden put in a lot of work this past month and earned his BEAR award in Cub Scouts.  I can't believe how old he is getting!  Our Scoutmaster is so fun with the boys.  They have a great time with him and his cute wife each month.  When Camden got his WOLF award he had to get it out of a whip cream pie. For his BEAR he had to catch 3 gummie bears in his mouth.  If you look close you can see the green one at the top of the picture flying through the air!  Great job Camden!  For fun I posted him with his whip cream pie last year!
It's right at the top of the picture hanging on the wall!

Sadie: A Whole New Soccer Player!

It is amazing what a difference a year can make!  Sadie has become quite the soccer player.  She is one of the older kids, and it really makes a difference!  You can tell how much more focused the older kids are, how much more large motor skills they have, and especially ball control.  After two games Sadie's goal count is 11~  nope that is not a typo!  The best part is when talking to her Grandma on the phone she told her, "Guess what Grandma - I scored 2 goals today!"  I love that she doesn't even pay attention to the score.  She still tells us she wants to rest after each quarter because her "legs are tired"  but I can't blame her - it was 109 on Saturday, poor kids!  I can't wait until it cools off for the kids and the fans!

Sadie's breakaway resulted in her 2nd goal of the day!

Sadie threw the ball in perfect for an assist!  I love that I got the ball in the air!  My camera was worth every penny I tell you!  Thanks Mom!

Here Sadie was playing some mean defense.  Luckily this game there were no kids in tears ! Last week one cute little kiddo stormed off the field crying telling his parents -  "They keep taking the ball away from me!!!"  I love U6 soccer games.  If they aren't crying they are running off the field for their own water breaks whenever they get hot or you have to talk them into coming back in after their "rest".  Too funny!

Sadie Turns 6!!!

I cannot believe my baby has turned SIX years old.  My friend took this beautiful picture of my sweet Sadie below.   Thanks Amy!  Why do they have to grow up?

All Sadie wanted for her birthday was a PEDICURE?  

Sadie invited her best friend Sutton to enjoy the fun!  Haleigh was so sweet - she came too to help pick colors and designs!

Sadie came home from school on her birthday with a bounce U Certificate given to her from the Principal.  Each kiddo gets one at the school. Now that is a great marketing strategy.  Guess where Sadie decided to go for her party???  Yep you guessed it - Bounce U.  It actually ended up being a perfect decision since we discovered the date we picked for her party was the weekend Troy was on a golf trip with his brothers.  Sadie had a great time with 15 of her friends and siblings.  Do you see the sweat? These kids played hard!

Happy Birthday Sadie!  We couldn't imagine our lives without your sweet spirit in our family.  We love you so much!
