There are a lot of mom groups out there, but nothing like the official MOMS Club International. It requires a yearly dues but includes so much and has an official board. Here is the link if you are reading and want more information about one in your city...http://www.momsclub.org/.
These pictures I took on our way home from the park, where we had the meeting at. It was SO hot outside (almost 100') but she was a trooper and loved it with all the other kids playing. She was dirty and went straight to a cool bath when we got home :)

This little girl loves to help me! Anytime I say "do you want to help mama?" she comes running!
She helps me: (just to name a few)
-empty the dishwasher,
-hands me the clothes to go in the washing machine,
-I hand them to her and she puts them in the dryer,
-she always closes the doors in the house, plus the refrigerator door and the dryer door,
-cleans the floor with a wipe :),
-clean up the toys in the bathtub and the living room floor.
She is amazing!! I feel like I always have a shadow following me around the house, I suppose I really do and it's a great thing...more than anything, a great feeling! When we are home together she is a big helper!

Mom just called and said that Lee was not able to give chemo again today, this time because of his mouth sores. They wanted him to go back home and rest with a prescription because they are so bad. This makes me want to cry so hard and even more be there with him in his pain. We will be there soon, July 7th we are leaving.
I ask for your extra prayers this week that the sores clear up fast and that he is in no more pain. I know so many of our friends and family read this blog, that's why I put this information on here. Hoping that it will help. I promise to keep you more updated. They want him to go back Tuesday to start. Let's hope he can get another week done then! Thank you to everyone and for my family for being there for him. He needs us know more than ever!!
WE LOVE YOU LEE!

The tennis balls and babies are always a hit!
Eating lots of snacks together...they would take turns asking for more!
I found them in the chair together like this and then....
I told them to say "cheese" and they both looked at eachother and smiled!

The fun part for me was being able to catch up and talk to my good friends Bonnie, Autumn and Tara while the kids were in class. Thank you girls for the invitation!
They put all the little ones in the buggy to go see a horse that was brought for them to see.
Look at her face when she saw the horse!

Thank you for being a WONDERFUL father to Ana Maria. So caring, energetic, and fun! You are the reason she is so happy everday with a huge smile on her face everytime she sees you. I can't express enough how important you are in her life and how much she looks forward to playing and being with you everyday. Thank you for always working so hard so I can stay home with her. One day she will realize what are you are doing for her!
WE LOVE YOU!

*She said a new word on the trip...AGUA (for water)! It is in the last video!
She loves her new sunglasses from grandmom!
The drive to Kansas City was beautiful :)
A street in "The Plaza".
Playing in the fountain at the Cheesecake Factory
She wasn't too sure about standing on the wall...
I was a little nervous taking this picture, but I think she was even more so I knew she wouldn't move anywhere!
The Plaza was beautiful and great weather
Heading to the tennis courts from the hotel
So many fountains to look at!

He has done so well and is so strong. I don't want this to get him down or get him behind. We're planning a trip for everyone to come to Arkansas for vacation when he is done.
Please pray for Lee!

It seems like Ana Maria is singing all the time now. We're not sure what it is exactly, but to us it seems like singing! I was in the car with Laura Sofia (my niece) on the way home from the track meet and Ana Maria was belting it out, as well as dancing with her head. Laura Sofia videotaped part of it...here it is!
