Sleeping with his football

We got Adeline a Volleyball and Andrew a Football while they were at cousin camp.  Adeline and I have been playing/learning Volleyball and Andrew has been practicing with his Football.  This is the right size for him and the size he uses at flag football.  Can you tell he likes it?

Celebrating the lost tooth with ice cream

A fun stop at Frosty O.  The ice cream seemed a bit colder today!!

Andrew loses his first tooth

So Mister Andrew comes out of the house and says "my tooth is really wiggly".  I think biting apart his Legos may have something to do with it.  Sure enough it was loose.  He looks like he was crying but it is just his eyes still being swollen.  Two pulls and it was out.  What a big boy!  It is really official now....he's losing baby teeth......

Cousin Camp 2015

Picked the kids up from cousin camp.  They had so many stories and so much excitement to share.  One big one was poor Andrew getting bit by something or rubbing something on his eyes (it is unknown).  Both were severely swollen.  Poor kid looked like he was in a boxing match.  We took him to the urgent care on our way home and got him started on some medication.
Aside from that they came home with special boxes filled with their many crafts and fun adventures.  I am so glad they have this time together.  It allows the cousins to really bond with each other.  Thank you Grandpa Bean and Grandma Kay for doing this.  The kids sure do love it.  And every year Grandma adds to the photo fun to look back and see all of their great times.
James and I enjoyed a quiet house, getting projects done, spending time with friends, going on a date, and going to the movies.

Happy Birthday/Father's Day Daddy

This Father's Day was a bit different for us.  Thursday I got really sick and ended up getting Strep also.  This strep put me out for five days.  Headache, fever, chills, body aches, and a terrible sore throat.  So yesterdays plans to go to Craigs Cruisers had to be put off a week.  We still came down to Olivet in hopes that with an antibiotic in me I would begin to feel better.  And the kids were to stay in Olivet for cousin camp.  
So I spent most of the day in bed sleeping.  James went with the kids to church with my Dad and brother and then back to my Grandpa's.  They celebrated his birthday there and Father's day which was so sweet.  Then they came back to the Bean house and we celebrated there too.
Happy Birthday James Bean....I love you!

Wiped out

After flag football this morning Andrew came home, grabbed the blanket and just fell asleep on the couch.  He isn't sick anymore, just exhausted.  Long summer hours are kicking in.

Donuts, beach, and a lighthouse....

Olivia stayed the night with us last night.  This morning the kids went on the trampoline first thing and waited while I made donuts for breakfast.  After that we headed to the beach for a few hours.  It was a beautiful day.  When we left the beach we stopped and took a walk out to the lighthouse.  
It was a relaxng, fun afternoon.

Andrew wanted to be buried in the sand
Matching swimsuits
Andrew and I threw the football most of our time at the beach.
This kid loves to throw...

Cute picture of the kids by the lighthouse surrounded by graffiti!

A nice summer day.  Olivia now lives closer to us....hooray!  
Sprinkler on the trampoline......

Andrew's first flag football practice

Andrew was pretty excited about playing flag football.  Today was the first day.  His buddy Sully is playing with him.  Today there were six boys total.  Not sure if there will be more kids showing up.  We were hoping for more kids so that there would be Saturday scrimmages.  We'll see how it turns out.  If anything Andrew will be able to learn some good fundamentals.

Impromptu ice cream date....

As we were walking out to the car to grab something Sully and his family were walking to Frosty O.  As we were talking to them, Jacob and his mom drove by, they were on their way to Frosty O too.  So we got on out bike and headed for ice cream.
