First Swim Meet

Charlee and Oaklee had their first swim meet tonight. They both swam great! Oaklee won 1 first, 2 second, and a fourth. Charlee won 2 seconds, 1 third, and 1 fourth. It was so fun. On the way home, the girls and I stopped by Wal-Mart to buy buns because I really wanted a Crabby Patty for dinner. We went into their version of a "man cave" to see what we could get Brian for Father's Day. We ended up buying him a new recliner. Since I sprained my ankle a few days ago, we needed help to get it to the car. This nice Wal-Mart worker with dread locks, a 5 o'clock shadow, and many great tattoos helped us to the car. While I put the seats in the van down so it would fit, a pole fell out of our car. The worker picked it up and gave it to Oaklee. She said, "Thank you, interesting man." The guy did not say anything, but I cried laughing the entire way home.

Summer

I thought life was supposed to slow down when summer came. Yeah, not so much!
Charlee and Oaklee joined swim team. It is so funny:) I will put video on after their first meet.
Jaxson has decided that he needs to be the messiest kid in town. He keeps doing bad stuff. We started this thing called myrewardboard.com as a reward system. We are still in our 2 week free trial, but it is working great. It keeps track of their chores and attitude on the computer. Whenever they do one of their chores, they put a smiley face on the square and the smiley faces all cheer. Even Jaxson's attitude has improved some. He is still messy, but he is fighting less with the girls. The girls love it because they all have their own password... Pretty cool. I made one of their things sit still during scriptures and it has made a huge difference there. I also made it for brush morning and night and floss. Since Oaklee had 3 cavities this week at the dentist, I hope the game can improve their oral hygiene. Check it out (Thanks Audra for the tip)

Our Date With Jaxson

Brian and I went on a date to the Mellow Mushroom tonight with Jaxson. The girls are at a birthday party. Jaxson ate yummy pizza and made us laugh. He said it was not a date... we just went out to dinner. On our way home, we stopped by the girl's party because Charlee called us with "bad gas" and wanted a Gas X Strip. We don't know why she calls it "bad gas" instead of just gas, but oh well. The Barry's will get a kick out of Charlee's chosen pajamas for the party... She cam out wearing a black t- shirt that says "Fresh Burrito" on the back. Real classy :)
