Catch Up

I know it's been a while since I updated on the house. We're pretty much finally finished with the downstairs. Here's the progression:

I think it looks a lot more "like us", and we're happy with the way things turned out. Now, we just have to get the upstairs finished!

Scarlett has been busy with camps this summer! Tennis camp, golf camp, church camp. Poor Clark is just barely too young for all of those things. One day while Scarlett was gone, I took him to a friends neighborhood pool to do some swimming. He had a BALL playing on the water slide. It was a great time with friends, and I'm happy that I was able to do something just for him.

Tennis Camp

Last week Scarlett went to tennis camp. She was so excited because this year she graduated out of the pee wee group and was a step up with the big girls. :)  (she was still the youngest/smallest girl, though!)

I'm proud of her for playing in 100 degree heat for three hours every day! Clark was so sad because he was about a year too young to attend...he even snuck his racket in the car one day trying to convince me he could go. ha~

On Friday, they played a round robin match and had a little awards assembly. Scarlett was about 2 years younger than the other girls in her group, but she managed to win a match! She was happy about playing "tv tennis" as she calls it. (she played like they do on tv. haha), but she wasBEYOND excited to get a trophy. These pictures crack me up because I seriously don't think her smile could be any bigger.

 Clark was a trooper and even cheered for his sister, despite the fact that he was a tad jealous :)
