They also played some football & soccer. It's so fun to watch these boys interact and play together. I hope they stay friends for a long time. And I hope we never have to leave this awesome cul-de-sac. It's the perfect place for these boys to run, play and burn off all of that energy they have.

Haley was the only one who got to be on the boat the whole time. She refused to get off. Stinker!!
She rode the knee board for the first time and did a great job.
Their favorite is the tube. Jaxson absolutely loved it, even on the choppy, bumpy water. I, of course, was in the boat the whole time stressing about him falling off. I made Haley hold on to him with all her strength and told her that if he fell off she better be right behind him. I know, I know, he had a life jacket on and would've been just fine but I'm such a worrier.
It was a great day!

The soapier you got the faster you went.
The down side to giant slip-n-slides? Serious plastic burns. All the boys were moving a little slow the next morning. OUCH!
I am really proud of her. She has been working really hard at this. They practice everyday after school for about 3 hours. She doesn't get home until almost six and then she has to keep up on everything else that's going on in her life: Homework, piano, violin, mutual & family stuff. Some nights she's up until 10 or later doing homework. By the time the weekend rolls around she's exhausted but she has a great attitude about it and genuinely loves it. The only area she needs to work on is keeping up on her daily household chores. She figures that's the one thing she can slack off on. I'm gonna have to straighten that girl out!

After a quick shower to clean off the dirt, lots of Neosporin and some Motrin he was fine. At least until about 4:30 this morning when he came and woke me up cause his shoulder was hurting. Oh, the joys of motherhood!
This was the worst of the injury.
Big nasty bruise on his elbow (was real convienent yesterday when it was time to do chores -- hurt too bad to take out the trash)
Can't see it very well but he has a big bruise on his jaw. (sorry, blurry picture)
I'm sure he'll be back out on his bike today. I'm glad that an accident like this won't keep him down for long.
