what we've been up to

Here are some photos from the last month...
Carter and Cooper at the Science Academy put on by Concordia students at their school.Cooper and his friend Riley at their brothers' hockey game.Carter had a tournament in White Bear Lake last weekend. They won the consolation championship and got this cool polar bear trophy and medals. They also won the hot dog eating contest and got a trophy with a hot dog on it!

Carter and Griffin
Kennedy and Kenzie had fun swimming at the hotel and got to go to the new American Girl store at the Mall of America!
***I need to thank Karla and Cindy for the pics since AGAIN I proved to be in the running for worst mother of the year and didn't have a camera along.

sometimes i forget...

to tell my kids how much I appreciate them. This is how they leave their rooms.... EVERY morning. And while I'm at it... I forget to tell my husband how much I appreciate that it has been his job for as long as I can remember to wake the kids up EVERY morning. Whether I'm at the gym, or still in bed(like this morning).

Hey family... your momma appreciates you!
