Little Scientists~

EK was feeling better this afternoon after just one dose of her meds
so they all headed outside.
Can't tell you how excited they were to find 12 caterpillars on the driveway!
SJ RAN to get her caterpillar book so they could identify!
Little Scientists in their element... Nature!!!

Simple Sunday~

Loved church and lunch with most of our crew~
 Sure missed Savannah, Josh, and BC!
Everything was all happy and fun until one black car kept going from church 
and then this one pulled out later in the afternoon~
 The littles have really struggled with all the bigs being gone.
I found an app to put on EK's iPad so she can text her sisters and dad during the day~
I'm pretty sure she's going to drive them nuts. haha

Ms. Big~

I HAD to get this photo of Evie {Ms. Big}~
Evie: I'm taking her to class and she is gonna cry!
I tell her and tell her I be right back.

Ben Curtis~

I can pretty much set my clock by my 4:30 call from Savannah as she leaves school each day.
Our usual favorite subject is Ben Curtis~
And she's so good at sending me a daily photo of this angel.
I miss him like crazy and can't wait to love on him soon!!!

A Week of Firsts for the Girls~

SJ learned to ride her bike~
Watch her in action~

Next was Holly...
She blew us all away when she jumped in the pool after our ice bucket challenge~
Surprised herself too then proceeded to jump in about 100 times~

Then Ms. Priss learned to blow bubbles with gum~
And she has blown about 1000 bubbles since then~
Things in the learning process:
~ Boys learning to ride their bikes without training wheels
~ Bitty girls learning to swim
EK & SJ are great role models for all of them!!!

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge~

Scott and the littles were challenged to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge this week.
You can imagine with young kids, they had no idea what we were talking about 
so we shared some videos of people living with this terrible disease.
We also shared the videos of Josh and Amelia giving us the challenge.
They were SO excited to oblige and were off to find a bucket~
I'm pretty sure Scott had the MOST fun and I LOVED shooting the video~
I think the thing that surprised us the MOST was Holly following the lead of everyone and JUMPING in the pool!!!
She had NEVER done that before!
I'm pretty sure she jumped in about 100 times after that!
We are donating to the ALS cause as well!
Thanks Josh and Amelia for giving us one of the sweetest family memories ever!!!

Good News and Good Visit~

Payne and Holly had a neurosurgeon appointment today and both got pretty awesome reports.
Holly's prognosis was so wonderful we don't have to go back for a year.
Payne needs an MRI baseline so we are waiting to hear when that will occur.
Afterwards we took the crew for lunch~
{yes the bitties were squished but they begged to be up there}
AND you know we planned to see Rose so we picked her up from class and headed to the bookstore~
 I loved standing in line with her listening to all the great stories from the last few days!
She is so excited about her new sorority adventure and classes are going well too.
Before we dropped her off for her last class, we went for an ice cream @ Chick-fil-A~
SO good to be with our baby Original and know she is doing awesome on her college journey!!!
