Even though Luke says he doesn't like the zoo, we went again soon after Ethan's bday. Melanie Womac invited us on her membership's bring a friend for free day. Logan was excited to go back and see the elephant and play on the boat. Luke had fun once we made it to the area that lets you plan on he rocks and pretend like it's food.

Sophie ran her first cross country meet today and she totally rocked it! The hs coach invited middle schoolers to run with them during the summer. So 3x a week she went to practice at 7am. It totally paid off as she ran with the 7th and 8th graders and and took 11th! On her first race. There were at least 80 girls, maybe 12 schools. Sweet!! Such a testimony of hard work paying off. In practice this week she was running with the boys, leaving the girls behind.
She also tried out for volleyball. She didn't make it, but I was so proud of her for trying!! 72 girls tried out and they took 25. She had a great attitude about it. She almost didn't try out because she's excited about running and wants to focus on that. I encouraged her to try because she had been planning on it all summer. Her one success was that when they ran an 800 in tryouts she beat all the other girls by 20 seconds. Whoosh...

Luke is so excited to be five years old. We started the birthday festivities with a breakfast of his choosing. His friends came over in the morning. He invited Chris and Chase. After eating the cupcakes he requested from Sam's club we headed over to the jumpy house. They jumped to their hearts content and then we headed to McDonalds for lunch. After school Keaton came over to play and watch shows. Luke finished his day by opening his present. He got a drum set. And he ate pizza and watched a movie.
Grandma Barbara sent him the spring shoes that he requested. He is a thoughtful boy with such a big heart. He actually asked grandma for two pairs of shoes because he wanted to get one pair to his friend Keaton. Their friend Owen has a pair of spring shoes and attributes the fact that he can jump high to his shoes. Luke has wanted a pair for months. He was so cute running around the house and jumping while he tested out his new shoes.

Porter stayed home sick. He had a nasty headache and eye pain. However I gave him meds and we grasped the only chance I could see if being free during DMV business hours. One hour in line later he was all official!! And a big thanks to dad for getting all the paperwork done. The second Porter has his 6 hr course done, Doug was gathering (tons of stuff) what we needed.

Logan is starting early. I turned around and found a very proud Logan pretending to cruise all over on the motorcycle. Complete with singing and lots of sound effects.
Boys got tired of being inside for two days as we waited out the storm. They rode around for a long time Ethan told me, I didn't know it was so much fun to play in the rain. Logan told me his shoes were dirty, actually they were just wet. But he took them off anyway so he could be more free.
Ethan's drawing, predicting what the storm was going to bring.

We have another teenager in the house!! She got her long awaited smart phone and Kendra Scott necklace. We went and picked out the necklace together- such a fun mother daughter activity!! Sadly, on her actual day Harvey was making us all nervous with wind and rain, Doug went and picked up her friends so they could hang out. They had a fashion show and blind makeup challenge. They had lunch and cake, and then they went home to wait out the storm.

On the way home from the lake with Uncle Adam and Aunt Heidi, Luke told them all about how it is at home. He told he couldn't have any media until his work was done. He reported that his mom doesn't do anything, she makes the kids do everything. All they do is work, work, work.... funny how reality and perception can be so different. How I wish his perception was reality!
