Two big nights for B

Bryce's baseball team got to participate in the Naturals Field of Dreams tonight. They got to go out on the field with the team before the game, and then they stood by the player with the position that they played during the national anthem. It was pretty neat!

Night before last, Bryce lost tooth #2. It came out while he was brushing his teeth, so I had to learn how to be a plumber and find it in the drain. I'm just glad I didn't have to pull it!

Catching up...

I knew I had been a blogging slacker, but I didn't realize it had been 3 weeks since my last post until I saw the new feature on the Slaughter's blog that lets you know when your last post was! Our summer's started off fun...and busy. We spent almost 2weeks in Louisiana with Brad. Not much to do in New Iberia, but we had a blast being together as a family. The kids have tried their best to be in the pool every single day. After trying to work with Brooke in the pool for 2 years now and getting nowhere, she decided on her own while we were in Louisiana that going under water was OK; she also figured out how to swim...on her own, of course. She'll do things no other way!

Over the weekend we went to Biloxi, Mississippi and had fun at the beach. The condition of the beach was pretty good...better than Texas (although someone told me that they brought in all the white sand that Katrina wiped out...from Texas of all places???). The city is still trying to recover and rebuild from the storm.

We made our 2nd annual Father's Day trip to Bass Pro in a different state. We haven't really planned for it to work out that way, but it's fun to take Brad to one of his favorite places on his special day...wonder what state it will be next year???

So, now it's time to pack...UGGGH! Too bad that's becoming an annual event too. This time I'm finally letting go of the sorority sweatshirts I've been hanging onto for over a decade...not sure why. We wore them SO BIG then!!!
