Happy 7th Birthday!!! We love you!

Where oh where does the time go?? It seems like yesterday you were in diapers and learning to walk! Now you are this smart, charming, good looking little boy who loves to hunt, fish, play baseball, and aggravate your sister! You have the best heart of anyone I know and always see the good in everything and everyone. You love to say your prayers every night and I know you have a direct line to God because you talk to him like a friend! I am so proud of your accomplishments and how well you are doing in school. There are many changes coming and I know you will adjust well. I thank God every day that he has lent you to me and has trusted me with your care and upbringing. I love you so much and wish you many more happy birthdays!!

Yesterday after me and the hubby got off work we decided to take the kids to the lake for the evening! We are absolute lake bums when it even gets slightly warm so this is a normal occasion! I just love riding in the boat and watching the sunset while the rest of the family fishes. Now that Miss Bailey is old enough to fish she couldn't wait for her hook to be in the water, so daddy baited her hook and threw it in and told her that she was going to catch a big 'ol fish and to be ready. Her response was "but daddy I want a baby goat" hahaha ..... If only life were that simple and we could be that naive again! Unfortunately the fish were not biting at all yesterday and the only fish caught was by Chase and that was because he hooked it in the neck while he was reeling his line in!! Oh well, it was a beautiful evening and another memory made:)

Fashion Emergency

1st grade award day...Chase got an accelerated reader award! He looks good in anything!

Ok, this is just a little story I need to jot down for my own memory! My son is probably the most vein person I know! At only 7 years old he is very aware of how he needs to dress for any occasion! I guess you could say this is my fault but his dad is the same way!! This morning in car line we noticed that a lot of the kids were dressed very nicely and so I asked the car line attendent what was going on, she informed me that today was awards day for the upper and lower school so I said "OMG, do I need to run Chase home and change him?" she informed me that there was no need. Chase was wearing plaid shorts and a blue tshirt with his tennis shoes since it was gym day. She said that the lower school kids were dressed for PE so it was ok. Well Chase did not see the approval because he was in tears!!! I am talking alligator, hyperventilating style crying. He refused to get out of the car. I had to pull up and explain to him that he looked great and that he could wear a paper sack and still look good!! He finally calmed down and went inside. Whew!! That child is a mess, but you know he will always be dressed well!
