Once Upon A Time...

I was really concerned about Devin's fine motor skills. (Actually not that long ago.) He was not at all interested in coloring. He would scribble on the page and be done in 5 seconds flat. He would choose just about anything over coloring. Just recently, in the past few weeks, Devin has taken a liking to coloring and willingly chooses/asks to color. His skills have really developed in this time. I love his rainbow coloring technique.

May 2006 FAMILY Meet up!

On the first night of our Disney trip we were able to meet up with a May 2006 Mom and her family. It was so fun to meet another Mom with whom I have been "friends" since Devin was a baby! Kara, her husband Trey, and their 3 girls were so sweet. (We loved their southern accents too!!)
Kara, Kendall and Devin ~ the May 2006 kiddos!, and Karla
Kylee, 3 Kendall, 4 and Devin, 4Erick and Trey had a good time talking sports!

They were so nice- they surprised Devin with personalized mouse ears!

Devin was so tired from all of the day's excitement. He slept on the table through most of dinner!I hope we get to meet up again someday Kara! We had a great time getting to know you better.
And let Trey know that Devin is waiting for that Tennessee football recruitment info!! hehe
