A new house with a lot of history

We are getting ready to move but first giving the house a bit of a makeover.  So fun to have this history of the house from the previous owners.  

Water Polo National Selection Camp

Harper got selected for the National Selection camp for Water Polo.  She is gone over Memorial Day weekend.  48 girls from her age group were selected and she was invited back to try out for the National Team.  At the camp, they will select 20 girls for the National Team.  Thank you to everyone for supporting Harper.  Just a bit more to raise as all funds for the camp need to be fundraised.  Would you consider helping her reach her goal.

Thankful for Happy Times.

This is pretty much life the last month.  Trying to make it from one sporting event to another and just finding time to be together and sometimes we have to settle for 3 out of 4 kids but so thankful that all our kids are happy.  

Harper so happy doing water polo.  

The days are numbered where Tate will just want to hang with me, smile and say, take my picture.  

Fisher playing 3 soccer games a weekend with everything he has and giving it his all and loving that his family is watching him from the sidelines. 

EB loving life and wanting to be out and about with Casey means everything and more to us all. 

And Peter who supports me no matter what and rushed from Grand Rapids yesterday to make the boys soccer game in Romeoville all with a smile on his face.

EB and Casey

These pictures say it all.  EB and Casey are meant to be together.  In the last few weeks that Casey has come to live with us, EB has been happier, calmer and more regulated and her anxiety is virtually non-existent.  She is thrilled to leave the house with her puppy Casey.  He has brought so much joy to her and our entire family even if he has brought a lot of black hair on our white floors.  Good thing we are moving and saying adios to the white floors.

Look at him tuned into her.

Cannot deny that connection.

Welcome to America

Sometimes there are things that melt your heart every single time you see them.  This is one of those things.

Water Polo in Florida

Because we did go to Florida for Spring Break because Harper was playing water polo, here are a few pictures.
I hope you know Harper that your brother is your number one fan and loves you so very much.  He will always be there to cheer you on!

Only in Miami does the HS pool sit on the ocean and have underwater viewing.  Talk about neat!  Too bad the game got called for rain and I could not watch a quarter "underwater".

Talk about gorgeous.  Makes me want to go back to HS for just a mere $36,000 a year!
