Catching up Part III

I know I've mentioned before that Hannah has been in physical therapy.  After a few months of no progress we were referred to an Orthopedic doctor.  We meant with him towards the end of June and it was decided Hannah would wear casts on her feet for 4 weeks.  They were able to put casts on that could get wet.  Great for showering and for swimming, not so great for walking in.  She had them on during the family reunion which made for some challenges because we did more walking than usual due to that fact.

She had the cast removed about a month ago.  She has been in a lot pain since, especially in her heel. She came into my room in the middle of the night because she couldn't sleep due to the pain. Her ankle is beginning to lose some movement and I've noticed she's on her toes more often. So we'll see what happens.

The blue things are shoes for her casts.  She had to wear them whenever she was up walking around.

Fresh new casta.

Catching up Part II

The week after the girls were out, Dan had a couple of days off of work.  We decided it was the perfect time to make a family trip to the beach.  The interesting part was there has been several shark attacks this summer just a few miles South of the Wrightsville Beach where we went swimming.  We saw a shark and a helicopter that kept flying by, apparently someone was attacked that same day about 20 miles South of us and they were trying to find the shark.

It was a perfect day for the beach.  It was overcast for a big part of the morning and then became sunny towards the middle of the day when the beach became crazy.  Luckily, we had come bright and early and were ready to leave by then. Here's some fun:


She loved eating the sand :)





He would cackle and cackle chasing those seagulls.






This little one loved playing in the waves!  I had to keep a close eye on her because she would run straight for them, laughing all the while.

Catching up Part I

It's been almost 3 months since my last post and A LOT has happened!  I'll try to play catch up with pictures from the last month.

Hannah and Bella finished school back in June.  Hannah and Bella had their end of year class activities on the same morning.  So Dan and I had to split up, Dan and Charlie went to Bella's preschool graduation, while Faith and I went to Hannah's end of year class party.  Here are a few pictures:










Bella's preschool graduation was in a church near her school.  She dressed up all fancy and they had the children sing a few songs and then had them dress in their cap and gowns and then walk across the stage for their "diplomas." They even had cake and ice cream after the ceremony.

For Hannah's Kindergarten graduation they had the kids sing a few songs, each child received an award, they had a slideshow with pictures of the class together and then refreshments.  It was a big day for every one!
