We’ve had a fantastic summer. I feel like I’m getting to experience childhood all over again with my children. I think it’s even better the second time around. At times being a Mom to several young kiddos is soooo stressful and tiring but the rewards of having a big family far outweigh the stresses. We are so blessed!!!! Over and over again I am told by older folks to enjoy every minute because these are the best years. We’ve been trying to do just that, so I’m going to start catching everyone up on our summer highlights!
Mom called letting us know her corn was ready for picking. We got over there as soon as we were able. The girls had their fill of corn-on-the-cob before we left the corn patch!
Elaina lost her first tooth! It was beginning to just dangle but she wouldn’t let anyone pull it for her. This picture was taken right before she lost her tooth. She was carefully gobbling up the fresh corn. She asked me to walk her to the house and as we walked she said she had a piece of corn stuck in her tooth. As she tried to get the corn out, her tooth popped out onto the ground. She was soooooooo excited and quickly retrieved it from the dirt.
She couldn’t wait to go back out and show everyone her surprise! The tooth fairy gave her eight quarters and we had a family ice cream party, featuring Bunny Tracks and fudgsicles, in celebration of her big milestone! She is such a fun kid!
