Swimsuits, Soccer, and Swings...

Am I CUTE or what????

Look how much I've grown!

Liked this pic of Cman...he looks SO GROWN UP!

My soccer man!

He shoots...and he did SCORE! 4x himself!

This boy is GREAT at defense especially-he will slide tackle ANYTHING!

At the soccer field, AGAIN!

Her first BIKINI! She keep flashing everybody on purpose-UH-OH!

My wonderful kiddos

C man must've been camera shy!

Didn't I just see this thing on "Wipeout?"

Lovin' the tunnel

Not too high big brother!

How does this thing work?
So, to get out of the house a little bit, I took the kids to a community playground, to get them away from each other too. Summer can make for a long season when you have 4 kids around each other too much! They had a really great time, and the weather was perfect. We got a pizza from a pizzeria and brought it home for lunch. We then got in our pool, and Chloe got in it for the first time with me today. We turned the heater on a few says ago, and it's finally warm enough (for me anyways!) I told Dan when he got home to just pack her baby pool away, because now that she's lovin the big pool, she doesn't want anything to do with her little pool! She is getting very brave, trying to jump in. She watches her brothers do this, and she has no fear!
We then went to the soccer field for the last time tonight (THANK GOODNESS! Sshhh...don't tell anyone I said that!) We have been at the soccer field more than home in the evenings and I am just ready for a break! "A man" had his last game tonight, and he scored 4 goals himself-no kidding, this kid is a soccer player at heart!

We had a busy weekend yet again around Uncle Jeff came up to PA to visit from North Carolina. We enjoy spending time with him and hearing about things going on with his family. We had a picnic Saturday night with everyone. We all had a great time. We are hoping to see my cousin Jeffrey and his wife Brittany and their ADORABLE little boy soon,so if you guys are reading this, hope you are planning a trip to visit sometime soon! They also all got Chloe a ton of clothes-thanks again!
Yesterday we visited a local State Park and took the kids to play in the sand and swim, although it was warm outside, the water was FREEZING! The boys and I took a paddle boat out, and we had it out for an hour, and boy were my legs a burnin'! Nonetheless, we enjoyed getting out of the house and spending time together.
We got Chloe's Certificate of Citizenship yesterday! This is what you receive from Immigration certifying Chloe is an official US citizen, so we can now apply for her Birth Certificate and get her a Social Security number-big hooray for pur family yesterday!

30 days ago....

Our family became complete with a beautiful dark haired,
albeit darn stubborn,'s hard to believe a month has
passed since she was placed in our arms and lives. She is such a
remarkable little girl, adapting and adjusting to everything our family
does. She absolutely loves her brothers. And they do anything and '
everything to make their sister laugh and smile. Things we have learned
about her in the last 30 days...
-She will eat ANYTHING you put in front of her! I wish my boys were like this!
-Her favorite food is-ANYTHING! Most of all, hard boiled eggs and sugar wafers
-She LOVES to play outside-she is most happy then
-Her first English word was -Ma, but can now say about 20 words in English.
If you tell her to repeat what you say, she will.

-She loves to shop-God knew she was meant for me1

-She loves to dress herself

-She is totally potty trained-yay!

-She loves our dogs, and just about any other animal there is.

-She is getting better with going to other people, not so shy anymore
We are so grateful to her foster
family and the orphanage for taking such wonderful care of her and
loving her. We have pictures from her foster family, and one day,
when she's older, we will share these special pictures with her.
Her life has been turned upside down, and she was taken
a world away from all she's known..
But, she is now forever
a Weaver....until she gets married of course, in about 40 years....
