I colored my hair last night. Well, technically Tai did. I like it. A lot. This is the first time I've gone darker red. I've tried blonde which doesn't work very well cause the red in my hair won't lighten. I've tried dark nut-brown which turned my hair green because the red won't un-redden. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em - right? So this time, I embraced the red and just went darker. And it's funny cause the copper in my natural haircolor still didn't dye. Nope. Just the blonde did. So the blonde is now dark red and the copper is still copper. Makes it look like natural highlights. It doesn't make my skin look weird since I already have naturally red hair which goes perfectly well with my complexion. I finally found a color that works. So yay! =)

Paisley playing fetch with Daddy. Every time she got all the rings in, she clapped and said, "Aaayyy!" So cute!
A month ago, Jade couldn't swim to save her life! Even the thought of putting her face in the water reduced her to hysterics. But with some work, look how far she's come! Goooo, Jade! My goal for the rest of the summer is to improve her form, get her floating on her back, and pick up rings from the bottom.
Here's Amber. She's been swimming for 2 summers now. But....she's always held her nose. Now she's not. This past month I've taught her to blow a slow trickle of air out her nose to block water coming in. We've also been working on swimming "down" to touch the bottom with her hand. The rest of the summer we'll be working on picking stuff up from the bottom, better swim form, freestyle, and back floating. Fun!
Amber had her last concert at school Thursday evening. After dinner at Red Robin, we rushed home so the girls could hop in the shower and Amber could get ready for her concert. She did a great job and looked so cute up on the stage singing her heart out! Afterwards, we went to Dairy Queen to celebrate. Everyone but Paisley enjoyed it. Poor baby was worn out! And the fact she doesn't like ice cream didn't help..... Luckily, David hadn't been able to stay and eat with us earlier so he ordered food and shared his fries with her. What a nice Daddy! =)

Amber and Jade helping with dinner
Look what she can do!!!
We've been having lots of fun lately and I can't wait till school is out! Then we can really have fun all day long! And on the not-so-fun days....I can put my older two to work and get the house in order in no time. I'm sure they're excited for that.... Hahaha! Too bad they don't have much choice! I'm really glad we have a pool in the backyard. I really can't wait to take advantage of that! And I'm really really hoping and praying I can save enough $$ to take the girls to Virginia this summer to visit my mom and Kevin. We miss them soooo much!!
To finish off this fun picture filled blog post....I have a couple fun videos for you! Yay!
This is fun. Raphael is constantly trying to come inside! I can't figure it out cause it's not even hot out lately and my AC isn't on....so it's really about the same inside as it is outside. Guess he just really likes people and cats?
Saved the best for last. Don't mind my "Mom" voice....you know you use it, too! Anyways - impressed?? Maybe just a little? Hmmm....well we are! =)
