Here are a few scenes from our summer. I'm writing this from the car on the way to IKEA if that tells you something about the pace of life.
We took the kids to their first circus. This is the last year for elephants in the circus so we thought we better take them. They absolutely loved it. We did too.
We've felt a lot like this lately...
You can't have a blog post without Daisy pictures can you?
We have been swimming and swimming and hanging with our peeps.
We watched the fireworks over Lake Conroe and decorated our bikes for the 4th of July parade.

Poor Emma is getting dressed up a lot these days.
The girls continue to ride and love it. They are riding more challenging horses and doing more complex techniques.
We thought it was a tornado but it was a down draft that swept through our yard 6 days before we moved. It took out a big pine tree and our fence.
We moved into our new house 2 weeks ago today and we love it! Great house near many of our friends.
The kids went to an awesome sports camp. Lauren got a special medal for her good attitude. She went to cheer camp with a broken leg in her wheelchair.
Oh wait...I didn't tell you about the broken leg...oh yes that was 3 weeks before we moved. She hurt it on the trpoline. I had my 5 kids plus 6 extra kids at my house at the time. Matt was out of town and my dear, sweet, incredible friend Angel took the extra kids while I took Lauren to the ER. Angel did this two days before moving her family to Thailand. I have such great friends!
And we celebrated Matt's birthday.
A great summer and more to come.
