"What if she's SHY??"

Before Scout was born I would ask Riley...."What if she's shy?". He thought that was the funniest thing, considering who her mama is. He's not too shy either, so this didn't all come from just me. This afternoon Scout was really talking up a storm. She has this new funny voice. We never know what kind of sounds she'll make.

The Move

Scout has been sleeping in her bed, in her room for almost a week now. After she outgrew the Moses basket, she had been sleeping in her play yard at the foot of our bed. Everything was going fine, we just decided it's probably now or never. Our sweet girl has been sleeping all night since 6 weeks!! The transition went fine. I think she actually falls asleep easier without us distracting her.

When she wakes up we can hear her in there talking, laughing, kicking....just going wild. She is always so happy, but then after awhile she means business. That girl is "hun--grry". She has started waking up around 5:30 or 6:00 for a quick bite then she's back to sleep.

Scout sleeping "crazy" like her Daddy. Most nights she does a 180!!

Yesterday I had a garage sale here at the house. Hope, Summer, and Autumn came to help. Mostly to help with Scout. Summer dressed her, Autumn rocked her, and Hope made her giggle. That was such a big help. We had a really good time. I take that back......garage sales are no fun, but it was fun just hanging out. The best part is that now I have a clean garage. Maybe I should run take a picture of that.......naw, these pictures are better.

Hope & Scout Playing

Hope put this "NOT FOR SALE" sign on Scout. I have to admit it was a pretty funny idea.

Scout and Summer were big pals. Here is another picture of them just chillin' in the lovely garage sale chair. (Recognize it Aunt Jody? I think it is the only thing we didn't get rid of. You don't want it back do ya?)

This is Autumn and I goofing around while we were loading stuff up to "haul off".

Isn't She Smart?????

We're just the parents, but we sure think she's smart. These videos show off a couple of her tricks.

You'll have to excuse the pink and purple carpet. Talk to Mr. Smith about that!!!

Centennial Celebration

The Springlake-Earth Centennial Celebration went down this past Friday. Hope was in charge of decorating and she did a really nice job. Now I wish we had taken a picture of it, but didn't. I could list off the events of the day, but it wasn't too big of a deal. Mimi & Papa, Pat, and KD, Tandy, Pake, & Tate came for the festivities. It was packed at the supper, but we stood around outside and chatted with family and classmates.

Scout had a special outfit just for the occasion. Gramma-Ma (Riley's grandma) sewed some green and gold onto her little pants and I ironed "2026" on her shirt, since she will be the Class of 2026. Sounds like forever away, but I know it will be here before we know it. Hope made a "too cute" bow to match. So...Scout was definitely sporting some school spirit.

Aunt Tandy and Miss Scout!!

Here Goes....... it's late for me to even be up and I'm tired of messing with this crazy thing. Just thought I would attempt to post and see if it even works. I want a cute blog and this isn't that cute, but I guess it will have to do for now....until help arrives.

Tomorrow is "100 Years of Excellence" at Springlake-Earth so we should have lots of pics to share.
