Soccer Shots

We are knee deep into soccer now! Maddox started his practice last night. He was extremely excited to be out there kicking a ball around. He has been waiting for this for a long time. We had him signed up for a month but we didn't tell him until the day of practice. He would have been asking every day, multiple times a day if he had known ahead of time.

Labor Day Weekend

Grammy and Mariah came to visit for the long weekend. Indiana is known for their covered bridges so we went searching for one. 

Then we headed to the Purdue campus to play in the water fountains. The boys had fun and we found out who our streaker is - Maddox. 

The Bell Tower


We started the Labor Day holiday in the ER. Macen collided with another kid at school on Friday and Macen got the raw deal. He ended up with 5 stitches in his eyebrow line. He has been a tough cookie all weekend.

1st Day of Preschool

To say he was excited would be an understatement. He has been waiting for this moment for a year now.  He told me all about what they did after I picked him up. And we celebrated by going to Dog n Suds to get one of his favorites - a corn dog. A very happy boy today!

A Red Tooth Fairy

While telling his speech teacher about his loose tooth, Macen said she told him there is a way to see what color your tooth fairy is. You just have to put your tooth in a glass of water and wait until morning. Macen was eager to try it and his speech teacher was right, it does turn colors :)
