Day-to-Day, June 27

A few pics from the past couple of weeks...  We've been fully enjoying our summer!  I can't believe June is almost over.  Here we go...

We've made several trips to the Aquatic Center.  Eli loves to go down these green slides at least 100 times per visit.  I love seeing him so comfortable doing it, because I remember when I took him there for the first time three years ago and I literally had to ask a lady at the top of the stairs to give Eli a little push, because he would NOT go down on his own!  And of course, I had to catch him at the bottom.  Now I just sit on the side and watch him go up and down, up and down.  He loves it, and so do I!

CJ and Eli.  I love the goggles.

We babysat Timothy and Charlie at bedtime one evening.  We are with them all the time, but I think this is the first time that we've done the full bedtime routine from start to finish with them.  Later that week Timothy told Kelly, "I want you and Daddy to go somewhere and then Eri and Eric can come stay at our house."  Success!  :)

Eli had his friend Dakota over to play last week.  I heard them laughing so hard and turned around to find Dakota giving Eli a "horsie ride."  Ha!  (terrible picture- sorry)

The three of us went to a Rough Riders game last week.  Eli does not look too thrilled.  :)

He was really intense about watching the game and asked about 984 questions during it.  I really do love how he's figuring everything out, and I love how much he loves sports.

We took Eli to an indoor soccer game last week (Dallas Sidekicks).  He LOOOOOVED it.  We sat right up by the glass, so we had a great view of the action.  Eli was SO engaged.  None of us had ever seen indoor soccer before- it was a really fun experience that we'll definitely do again.  Kind of like a cross between ice hockey and soccer.  Fun!

He wants to be a soccer player someday.

This is a crazy picture, but I'm so proud of him.  He jumped off the "high rocks" at our friend Carol's house, right into the deep water, and swam all the way to the steps.  He's getting to be such a good swimmer!  He also perfected a cannon ball and a front flip after working on it forever.  I'm so thankful he loves the water so much.  It's got to be genetic!  :)

Have a great weekend!
