Putting her dolls in time out. 

Beck's first time to the dr, other than for a well check. He got a spider bite that became infected. 

Day 2 his whole ankle was red, swollen, and hard. He had a fluid filled blister. He complained to lightly touch the area. 

Day 3 on our way home from the doctor. 

Garage Sale find! A $2 vacuum!

Beck's first soccer game

Beck was not interested in soccer. He was shooting his spider web and "hassshhhing" his teammates with his Iron Man powers. He liked to fall a lot to add some excitement to the game. 

He has his shirt tied up like a girl, not bc I want to scar him, but bc he would sit down in the middle of the field during the game and put his arms and legs inside his 5 sizes too big shirt. I was trying to eliminate distractions. 

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life." memory verse for soccer

"It's ok, it's ok... Mom, I'm lovin' on her. It's ok, it's ok. Want your blankie?"

Every night this summer when Daddy got home, he took the kids swimming. They improved a ton over the summer. Beck was "swimming" without any floaties by the end, and jumping in. 

Sissy jumping in the pool

A few days prior Sasha bit Liv. She constantly pointed to the boo boo and said "Sasha bit you"

Beck is 3
Liv is 1

Things kids say:

Beck is learning about stupid and hate.
He says "grow bigger bc God made me."
He's into Iron Man.
"mom how come I can't see Jesus?"
"Did Jesus make the movie? But he made me."
"Jesus lives in my heart. Does he live in yours Mimi?"
He's obsessed with tying things up and ropes. 

Liv says "huh?" all the time. 
"hold you Mimi, hold you."
She loves to sing. 
"What you doing Mommy?"
"Dont want it."
She lists everyone she loves. 
She names if people are boys or girls.

Liv was cleaning Luke

August 2013
Our friends from Evansville, the Wades, came to stay with us for a few days. Liv loved playing with Langston, a girl her age.  She called her "Lank". After seeing Langston go on the potty all week, she decided to commit to undies and has been wearing them ever since.

A sleepy ride on the carousel at Holiday World

Dancing Snow White

He got Dusty for having a week of dry diapers at night and moved into undies full time!

She was always jealous of Beck's doggy pillow, so we got her an Ariel pillow.

Planes opening day with Knox and Dusty. 

She was very busy during the movie. Stuffing her face were the only moments she was in her seat. I have no idea what the movie was about... there's always DVD. 

Beck's first time hosting a sleepover. 

I took the boys to Lowes to make Dusty model airplanes. It was indeed the hardest thing I've ever done. I was sweating bullets the whole time. Luckily others around me helped out. 

Canoeing the White River with Nottinghams and Warners

We were supposed to be tubing, but showed up too late for that. 

Relaxing while he does all the work


Trying out the new ponytail

Indians Game with Nottinghams- they're culturing us non-sports people. 

First cotton candy! That was the only bite he ate. He didn't like how messy it was. 

A soccer player!

Beck and Knox are on the same team. Jamie was assistant coach. Team Wind

Looking for Mimi's house...always

Our first trip back to Evansville since the move. 

Snuggled up with their besties

Making El Chupacabra at Lowes with Drew, Mason, and Max

Sis needed to see what the heck those boys were up to... no good!

Beck is wearing Liv's shorts and has no idea. I changed him into his swim trunks at the car and left his regular shorts in the van, and his swim trunks were wet. I later found his regular shorts were in fact in my purse all along. Oops! Well worth the laugh anyway!

The Y to swim with the Shockleys

Just a little ice cream on the face. Might I add that she DOWNED that whole thing. Not what I had anticipated. Oops

Pickin up Mimi and Pops from the airport. Sis wore a dress. She had an accident. I only brought pants. Oops

Laine came to the pool with us. She ran and did a flip into the pool. So Beck ran and did a flip into the pool. No warning. I had no idea he was flipping. It was quite shocking, but he loved it. He continued to flip the rest of the summer at any pool. He even taught Mason how to flip into the pool. 

First soccer practice

Beck and Liv put on a show
