WOW, I have been out of pocket for quite some time. Rachel is healed and better. THANK GOD!!! We have never had such a hard time healing in all the surgeries. It took a GOOD 9 days for her to be back to normal! So, thank you all for all the prayer. She is great and it is over!!!

Surgery Tomorrow

Please Remember Rachel in your prayers tomorrow as she has her tonsils out. Surgery is at 9:15 AM. Pray that all goes well!!! I am feeling a bit more nervous this time compared to the last 3, so I could use your prayers too!!! Hopefully this will be her last surgery!!!

WARNING!!!! Proud Mom Post!!!

I know this is so similar to the other ones, but I just can't get enough. Look at her little legs kicking away to try to get to her teacher!!! I just can't believe that she is taking to this SO well!! I LOVE the water, and I want her to feel the same way!

Today was Rachel's first day of Gymnastics, and she had a blast. She has come a long way since last year. It was fun to watch her do everything.

Se then had Kaylee and Lynsey over and they went riding in the Escalade. Who knew it was a 3 passenger vehicle.

I know you all may not think this is the GREATEST, but I was just beaming with pride for her. She used to HATE her face wet, and on Day 3 of swim lessons, she is really doing wonderful. They actually let them swim to them without guiding them the whole way. I must say, she pushed off the best, and made it the farthest under water. Sorry, I couldn't help but BRAG!!! I can't wait to see what happens in the next 5 lessons.

Library Time

Today was the first day of the Summer Library Program. They are doing a summer in Texas. So they read them a book about a jalapeno.

They did a TeePee maze (Lynsey is with Rachel)

They also made Indian headbands!

Rachel and Lynsey had fun at the library today.

Day 2 Of Swim Lessons

Today was Day 2, and it was like NIGHT and DAY from yesterday. Rachel was begging to go under water. She was so happy!!! Here she is jumping off the side of the pool and (KNOWING) she was going under once she landed.
Here she is landing under the water.

They were floating on their backs today too.

They learned to get out of the pool, and here is my baby making sure we saw her getting out.

Here is my little Fishy!!!

Family Sunday

Today we went to the Jacksboro Lake. We spent time together, just the 3 of us. This is the view, pretty isn't it!Here is Rachel as we were getting ready to eat our picnic.She is a tomato fanatic. So she wanted me to get a picture of her eating one.Here she is on the pier. I love this picture. She is so sweet!!After lunch, we went over to the playground, and played.
It got so hot out at the park, so we went to Freds (Jacksboro for "Walmart") to get a little pool so we could cool off.
Rachel had a lot of fun playing in the pool. After I sat in it for a bit, I got out and tried to get some sun on this WHITE, PALE body.
We got out and dried off. I just had to post this picture, I LOVE HER BEAUTIFUL FACE!!!
She didn't really rest a whole lot during her rest time movie, so she was worn out after our full day.

A Walk Down Memory Lane

Wednesday's Walk Down Memory Lane

Come for a walk with me down Memory Lane!
And if you have a "Memory Lane" post, head on over to Scottsville to join in on the fun!

I have not done this in a while, but I ran across this picture and just had to post it.
It is one of my all time favorites. We took Rachel to the zoo in 2006 and I got this picture. She used to have this deep laugh that was SO not feminine. I loved hearing it. She doesn't do it anymore, so every time I see this picture, I hear that laugh and just smile.

Playing with Picasa

I heard about this program and I wanted to play. I love this picture and this is what I wanted to do with it. After taking pictures of the 6 cuties, I thought of how much fun it was to take creative pictures!!! What do you think????
