We've been busy. VBS, camps, playing, eating, swimming, you know...the good ol' summer time stuff. We always spend more time at the Library in the summer too. Back in June, we went and watched a Magic show and checked out books. As we were there the librarian encouraged all three kids to sign up for summer reading and she assured them there would be prizes if they completed it. Gavin and Ellie each read their own books. Gavin 25 and Ellie 20, and Hadley got an award for me reading her 20 books. I am in love with children's books so it wasn't that hard for Hadley to get her award. But Gavin and Ellie worked super hard to earn theirs, and they did. Last week we went in and turned in our forms and they got their awards. They got a lot of free kids meals certificates for around town and tickets to an Astro's game. Guess we'll be doing that soon. Anyway, here they are before we turned in their certificates. I am so proud of them, especially G and E!!!
In other news, last week after looking at our Destin pictures I decided to get Ellie's hair cut. We contemplated Locks of Love, but after realizing it was a 10 inch braid (not length) we realized she'd have a little buzz in the back and I wasn't thrilled with that idea. Maybe next time. I did get a good 5.5 inches off although it is hard to tell.
This is after the 5.5 inches was taken off...still a lot longer than I thought it would be- but I love playing with her long hair:
While we were there we got Hadley's ears repierced. Not sure if you've noticed in pictures but she has been walking around with one earring pretty much since we got them pierced. They were pierced uneven at first so I took the one out and let the hole close. We finally went back and got it repierced. She wasn't as giddy or excited this time. But with Daddy's help, gum, and the lady telling a little white lie, we got the one re-pierced and hopefully we are done with that now.
