Today Madelyn and Jarrett danced during both church services. Along with several other daddies and little girls they danced to Steven Curtis Chapmans, "Cinderella". It was absolutely sweet! A couple of months ago Madelyn asked Jarrett to do a father/daughter dance with her. She has been taking a dance class at our church once a week. He thought it was a dance you went to, you know like a little prom or something. He happily agreed to do it, not realizing that it was a dance in front of the church. A couple of weeks ago he got a call about a practice for the dance. He thought it was strange that they had to practice for a "dance". Once I cleared up his misconception he wasn't so sure he wanted to do this. Getting up in front of people is not really his thing. But he knew he would break Madelyn's heart if he didn't do it. So today was the big day. They were just precious and it is something that Madelyn will remember forever!

We our gearing up for the move but took a break last night and hung out with some friends. The kids had a ball playing outside till dark.

Madelyn and Kennedy spend most of their time together spotting each other in gymnastics. Watch out Olympics here comes double trouble!

We have also been swimming a lot! Nathan has to wear his plugs and band for another six weeks.

Madelyn, what can I say, you look good climbing a tree in your dress!

Oh, sweet little Sophie!

I just couldn't resist taking pictures of her!

I know, I know, I haven't blogged in FOREVER! Our life has been eventful lately. Our house sold, then unsold, then sold again today. I got a job teaching 3rd grade in Owasso. Here is a little more of what we have been up to:

The above pic is of our friend Max. The kids have been taking swimming lessons this week. They have learned so much and have had a blast!

Nathan has to wear this head band because he had ear surgery last week.

Madelyn and Kennedy, aren't they adorable!

We went to Silver Dollar City!

Nathan before his surgery to remove his T- tubes and patch his ear drums.

The kids have had a blast hanging out at Grammy's and Grampy's house on Skiatook Lake. They are dynamite tubers this year which just thrills their daddy's heart.

I have been trying to keep the kids out of the house as much as possible so it can stay picked up since it is for sale. I am amazed at how by moving a toy outside makes it so much more interesting. Doesn't Madelyn look thrilled!

We have had lots of friends over and a lot of popsicles eaten.

So there you have it, a short update on the short family.
