The Cast Is Off

We are so very excited that the cast is off!! We went to the Dr. on Tuesday. They first took the cast off. The nurse explained how she was going to take the cast off and that her machine (saw) would be really loud. I am sure most kids wig out because it is very loud. Not our OG!! She just smiled and watched. After the cast was off they took a couple of x-rays. Dr. Cocker came in and said her arm looked great. We will go back in 4 weeks for him to see how she is using it. Hopefully we will start back to gymnastics in 4 weeks too. Olivia Grace's first questions were: Can I go faster on the tube behind the boat?; Can I swim in the big swimming pool now?; and Can I go to gymnastics now? She sure was a little trooper. She never complained once that she had to wear the cast. To be honest, it never really SLOWED her down (imagine that)!!!

4th of July

We had a great 4th of July weekend. Colton, Chandlan, Uncle Shawn, and Aunt Amy came to stay with us. Mimi, Papaw, and Dustin stayed at Aunt Kristen's. So we were all here and went to the lake for 2 days. Olivia Grace loved being with her cousins. The kids loved being in the boat. They really prefer to go FAST!! Olivia Grace even got to ride in the tube with her cast on. It was a great family weekend.

Fireworks at the Crosses

A few weeks ago we had fireworks at our other church location (Church at Pinnacle Hills). This was the second year for them. It gets better every year. We had a picnic dinner (Mad Pizza) with our Connection Group. The kids got to run around and play before the fireworks started. The Young's also joined us again this year. It was a great family evening.

Happy Birthday Carter Wayne

Happy Birthday Carter Wayne!! Saturday we went to CW's birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. The kids had a fabulous time as always!! From what OG says, I think we might be having her party at CEC. October is SEVERAL months away, so maybe that will change. We will wait and see. Happy 3rd Birthday CW. We love you!!

Water Adventure with the Cast

Well we have ventured out into the water with OG's cast. Last week we went to the lake and pool for the first time. Brent found a nifty little cast cover. It works pretty well. We don't let her submerge it, but at least we can get in the water.

The Young's joined us for our lake adventure last Wednesday night. Olivia Grace and the boys (Caleb and Noah) loved riding fast in the boat. It was a relaxing evening (IF the boat was moving or IF we were in the water). Thanks Young's for joining us!!
