Her biggest fans
On Fri B got the principals award for having great academic scores. Her report card is awesome and shows her being way beyond her grade level. We are loving her teacher and from what he had to offer me he enjoys her as well. I never hear anything negative about her from her teachers. It has made my job easier because she is so hard working. Good Job Brooks. Keep up the hard work! I am so fortunate to be blessed with you as my daughter. I love you.
He was so intrigued with everyone and all that was going on. The pre game show was awesome and he just sat and looked around for a good while. We were 2 rows behind the boys and I went down a couple of times to see if he needed anything. I asked him on my 2nd trip down if he wanted to go see Chad. His reply caught me off guard. He said "Mom, I dont need anything, now just go sit up there and leave me alone, I'm fine with the boys. I was dying laughing. Are they really to cool for their mom already at age 4.
Tate trying to give me a wink. It didn't take to long before he needed me again :) Or just me to buy him treats. The kid downed some nachos and a soda. Then we went and saw Chad and got snow cones. Followed that up with some candy and I think he was in heaven. Shane had a fan that would spray water and Tate thought it was hilarious. He kept squirting everyone including me and my camera.
I think this last pic sums up his night. The devils lost and the were terrible but he thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with the boys. He thought the game was really fun to watch as well. He has been wanting to play football with his dad now. The look on his face is one of utter contentment. Thanks David for thinking of us. We had a ton of fun on our mommy and son date!!

All of her cute curls no longer exist. I knew whenever I cut it they would be gone for good. I was loving her hair lately. Owell its just hair and now that it has been fixed I am not an emotional mess. I haven't even talked to Tate yet about it because I was not about to deal with him right when I saw it. He may have not survived if I had. He started crying when he saw me cry and I told him now she was going to look like a boy. He said he didn't want her hair to look like his. So here is the after and its not all that bad. Its got some serious texture going on. Who knows maybe this is a glimpse of Tate's future. Teasing Chad I know he is going to play professional ball. Ha. And I guess its not as bad as for me as it is for those who have to make an appt. then wait to get it fixed. I was glad we didn't have to go in public with it.

She loved sitting by the fire and inching her way closer to it. I couldn't even sit down because she is to busy and was making me nervous.
I forgot again to take a picture of our tent. I was rather impressed Chad whipped that thing up in the dark like he had done it a million times. I have no idea what the actual temp was in the middle of the night but I just know I can not remember a time I have been that cold. When we got there at 830 the temp was right around 50. I swear it had to have dropped 20 degrees throughout the night. Chad and I slept on an air mattress and just had a few blankets on. The freezing air was coming up from underneath us as well as all the way around us. I am a ding dong and forgot to pack myself something to sleep in, which made matters worse. The kids were in their zipper jammies and had their sleeping bags and blankets. Neither one made a peep the entire night. I was glad they were warm. We wont make the mistake of not having a sleeping bag again. As miserable as it was I wouldn't have changed a thing. Well next time I would like to, but for now its all a part of making memories:)
Look at her face! Sharman kept trying to get her to warm up and she would just slowly look at her and get an attitude. It makes me laugh. She doesn't really act all that sassy towards me. Generally she is a crazy, extremely busy but always happy kid. She can actually duke it out quite well with Tate. She finally learned she has to get beastie with him when he is sitting on her head or body slamming her. On our way home we pulled over and shot Jared's guns. Tate was really worried that there would be bears and wanted to make sure Jared brought his guns just in case. Tate thought it was the coolest thing he has ever done. Jared went through the rules and talked to them about being safe which was good for Tate to hear. Calamity Jane has nothing on me!! I was a pretty good shot I would have to say. After we played around for a while we headed out about 330 or so. We ate at the Burger House and made it home in time to shower and turn around and go watch ASU get their butts handed to them. We definitely had a fun weekend and missed B while she was at her dads. I finished Vince Flynn's 8th book and am now reading the last one. Well until Nov. and then the new one comes out. I cant wait!!! I blame him for my lack of being on top of things lately. I started reading his books at the very end of July and have blown through all of them. I stay up half the night reading because they are so good and they are hard to put down. The whole espionage thing is right up my ally. Speaking of, I think Protect and Defend is calling my name right now. Night
If you ask Tate what his favorite part of the zoo was he says when the goat peed on Kylan. They were in there petting them together and one of them started going to the bathroom. It took Ky a while to realize it wasn't the mister system drenching his foot. I wish I would have gotten the picture of him scrubbing his feet in the sink right after. Maybe its just my sick sense of humor but it was hilarious.
It has been a lot of fun having Kristine around as much as she is. The kids look forward to she and Kylan coming to play with them. Its nice to know that when I am not home that they are being well cared for. Thanks for inviting the kids to go with you and for allowing me to tag along! We sure missed B but she was not allowed to miss school. Thank goodness the weather has decided to get a lillte nicer. I love the fall and cant wait for the temp to be in the 70s.
