Olivia has been in theatre camp for the last 2 weeks at Main Street Theatre. She loved every minute of it. Their theme was Happily Ever After so, of course, she was thrilled with the idea of being a fairy princess. Their play, which they cast and wrote themselves with some direction from Mr. Matt, was called The Fairy Princess Ball. Olivia and her friend Mae were the twin fairies, Ebony, princesses of darkness. They told the other fairies, "No Dancing." Then the other fairies convinced Ebony to learn to dance... and they all lived Happily Ever After.

We were glad Dad could finally join us on Friday night. We usually go during the day and then are too tired to go back after dinner.
Olivia loved having Dad there b/c he's actually strong enough to throw her far and flip her fast.
McIver loves watching the big kids play foosball... and getting an ice cream during the 10-minute breaks.

"I've got 10 little fingers
And they all belong to me.
I can make them do things,
do you want to see? (you must answer 'yes')
I can squeeze them tight,
and I can open them wide.
I can put them low,
and I can put them high.
And I can make them hide.
I can put them in a very special way (brings them together).
I think about my God and I decide to pray."
Then we all go into "God Our Father."
McIver and I were trying to figure out the difference between a 'smooth roller and a bumpy one' today as we drove past a bunch of construction on our way to camp. When I told him that I didn't know the difference, he suggested that we ask Bryant Nixon. I was impressed that he remembered that Bryant knows all things construction. Bryant - if you're out there, please let me know so that I can pass it on to my future construction worker!

Will was on call last night and the kids and I decided to have 'breakfast for supper.' McIver accidentally backed into the waffle iron and burned his arm pretty badly. He insisted that I take a picture of his bandage today. And, he also said that if I wanted to I could also take a picture of his tattoo from VBS... so I did.
You might notice that the black Power Ranger sunglasses have been replaced with Spider Man. The Power Ranger pair met an untimely demise when Mac stepped on them at the gym. Not to worry, he loves the new pair at least as much.

for playing on the beach, too.
thanks to Aunt Dawn's lessons in being a not-so-good winner!
new ice cream machine. Christian did most of the churning with a
little bit of help from on-lookers.
Olivia, McIver and I rode up to Big Canoe with Pop on Friday. They loved the pit stop for doughnuts and slushies on the way up! Once we got the car unloaded, it was time to wait for Daddy, Nanoo, Cacoo & Christian, and the YaYas to arrive. We spent the weekend just enjoying being together.
