Our favorite things about summer….
naps on Granny’s swing…



more swimming…

and more swimming.

This summer we decided to take a trip to Oklahoma Science Museum and had a blast!! This will definitly be our list to to do’s for next summer…now we know that we need a whole day instead of just a couple of hours.

We also had the opportunity to plan a little get together of my parent’s friends for their 40th wedding anniversary. For those of you who know my mom very well, you know this is what every picture of her looks like.

But, all good things must come to an end; so off to school we go. Since I already did a post about Madison’s first of school, I figured I better show a picture of the two little kids going to preschool on their first day. I had to work, so Dan got them up, ready, out the door on time, and even made time to take a couple of pictures. =) Big brother has been great to show little sister the ropes at Little Lord’s Army…look how proud he is of his little sister.

Wednesday, Hannah left Oklahoma to return to her Egyptian home for one last semester (hopefully) at AUC. The night before she left we met at the park for a few pictures and a quick goodbye. We will miss her, but we know that her heart is in that big, crazy city of Cairo.


First Grade Already August 12, 2009

I can’t believe my little girl is in First Grade!!! This morning she was so excited to get up early (which won’t last long), get ready, and head out to her first day in Mrs. Brixey’s class. She is growing into such a beautiful little girl and seemed so grown up walking into the building by herself this morning. For those of you wondering, no I did not shed any tears; with two little ones still buckled in the backseat, there was no time. Luckily, Dan will be taking Eli and Lillie to their first day of preschool next week, which will leave me with three mornings of solitude every week…what ever shall I do?? Pedicure – here I come!!!

Introducing Family Member No. 9 August 5, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mandy Beam @ 5:04 am
Meet Roxy (or “Kitty” as Lillie calls her), the newest member of our family. She is a 9wk. old Boston Terrier and is one of the sweetest little dogs I have ever met. We are hoping that she will be a good companion for our other dog, Moez, who has desperately needed a friend for a long time. Maybe next picture of her we will find a bow for her! =)
