First day of school!

School started today for all the girls in the Wilson family, Shawna included. Abbey started the 2nd grade, Gracie is in kindergarten and Lily started Wee Care (a day care type of thing at the school). Shawna started her new job as Title 1 Reading instructor (helps kids who have trouble with reading). The girls were all pretty excited and got up this morning with no trouble, grumbling or complaining...we will see how long the trend lasts. It has been an adjustment for me as well, because for 2 months I have had the bathroom all to myself in the morning, that all changed this morning. Bedtime is early tonight so we have showers to be taken and clothes to be picked out....

Gone Fishin' !!!!

The girls and their cousins all went fishing this past weekend. We all headed out to David & Lisa McGhee's pond over by New Hampton and had a grand time. Nicole, Beau & Lucy; Kevin, Ramon, Morgan & Jake; me, Abbey, Gracie and Lily were all piling out of vehicles and headed to the pond. All the kids caught a fish and one fish was even caught twice.... Abbey was fishing with a bobber and plastic worm and had just cast it into the pond when the bobber disappeared and the line broke. She was extremely heart broken because it was her "favorite" worm. She walked back up the pond bank and was crying because her "favorite" worm was gone. About an hour later Kevin Caswell (Abbey's uncle) caught a fish and exclaimed to her that the fish still had her worm in it's mouth...isn't that awesome. God is so good, He care about even the little things like a 7 year old girl who lost her favorite worm. It was a real faith builder for Abbey!!! Her are some pictures of all the "Big" ones that they caught.

Splashes away!

The girls went to the pool with Morgan and Jake and had a great time. They went down the slide... Abbey and Jake tried out some goggles and Lily pretty much splashed around.

Having fun with our cousins!

Kevin, Ramona, Morgan & Jake Caswell all arrived in Missouri for summer vacation. The girls have been really excited about them coming back and were glad they finally made it. We all went to Mimi's house to see them, eat and have fun. All the kids (minus Lucy) piled on the porch swing for some fun.
