Dance & Ninja Camp


The kids wanted to try some kind of camp this summer.  When we got back from vacation in Florida and Arkansas, we looked into a few.  Finally decided on dance camp for Madelyn and ninja camp for Theo.

Madelyn's camp was close to Tim's work so he took and picked her up everyday.  Camp lasted most of the day and she LOVED it.  This girl can bust a move anytime.  She met some friends and just had a blast.  Madelyn had a short recital the last day and was so excited.  She did a fantastic job.  Thanks to our friends the Hill's for coming to watch.

College crew


One day while in Arkansas, Gigi watched the kids and I headed up to NWA to see my friends from college, Brandy and Angela.  Brandy's mom and her precious little girl, Caroline also joined.  I so love spending time with these friends and miss them a lot.

Here's the full Arkansas visit post.

Cousin time!


We were able to see my brother, Greg, his wife Crystal, and their kids a couple times while in Arkansas.  Madelyn and Theo were so excited about getting to hang out with them!

Molly's birthday party

Time with Gigi & Pops


After time at the beach, Tim went back to Knoxville to work and the kids and I headed to Arkansas with my parents.  We were there about a month!  It was a nice time to relax and get away for awhile.

Gigi's birthday was the day we got back

The kids did a summer reading program while there.  Madelyn read enough that they put her name in the book of her choice.  So proud of this kid.  Both kids did the reading program in Knoxville as well. She's read well over 100 books this summer!
