Here is Logan on the Fourth of July, along with a little insight from me on what was going on in that head of his.
Wow, Grandma convinced Mom to let me use the bubbles all by myself!
Finally, I can try to taste them...they look so good.
Pretty good, I'll have a little more.

Okay Mom, calm down...there's some bubbles.

Dear Jacob...

It's amazing to think that it has been 7 years since you were born, and I became a mom. On that day in July, 2002, there is no way I could have imagined how wonderful it would be to be your mommy. It's amazing the pride I feel with you for every accomplishment, as well I feel pain with you when you are disappointed.

Turning 7 makes you seem like such a big kid (and you are a big kid). You had a wonderful 1st grade year and you discovered your love of math and numbers. No matter what we're doing, you somehow find a way to add or subtract. As a matter of fact, just the other day you pointed out to me that it is only 6 years until you are a teenager.

I am constantly learning from you. I am often challenged by your intelligence. You always pay attention to what is going on around you and you keep me on my toes as a mom. You are also such a good big brother. You are (usually) patient with Ally and Logan. And I can tell that you want the best for them. I am lucky that you are so willing to help and teach them.

Everytime I ask you what you want to be when you grow up, you change your mind. Sometimes you say dentist, other days you talk about running a restaurant. But every time I ask, you do let me know that you plan to make a lot of money. You told me you will save a million dollars. And you have also promised Grandma that she can live with you after you buy your house. I know you are determined and I am sure that whatever you do someday, you will be successful.

When I say 7 years it sounds like a long time, but it has gone by so fast. I am so glad that I can look ahead and try to imagine what the future holds for you. However, anything that I imagine does not even compare to you and the things you do.

I am so proud to be your mom. Thank you for working so hard in all you do and making me so proud. I love you more than I ever could have imagined!

Crazy Hair Day

This week was Vacation Bible School. Jacob and Ally had a blast! It was good for Jacob to spend time with kids his own age (he is the oldest at daycare and gets a little bored). And Ally loves anything that is "school." Thursday was crazy hair day...so here are some pictures of the crazy hair dos.

Ally's never had much hair, so it is fun for me and her now that it is long enough for ponytails.

It is hard to do crazy hair for Jacob...
If you're ever taking pictures of Jacob, do not tell him to smile...it causes him to make some very strange faces.

And we can't forget Logan. He may not have gone to VBS but he is still super cute!
