The Little Gym of Rowlett is moving out to Rockwall, so this is our last week there:( We've been going since Jackson was 10 months old, so I'm kind of sad that it's almost over. Here are some highlights from today:
Too cool for school. Just decided to hang out on the monkey bars while all the other kids were doing the warm-up.
Here's an activity that got his attention. I must admit, it does look like big fun!
Bouncing like a little maniac on the air-track.
His favorite thing of the day was not the bars, beam or air-track. Nope, he made a little fort and climbed inside. Go figure.
Ta-da! Getting his medal from Miss Jessica.
Jackson decided that since he already has about 5 of these medals, I should be the one to wear this one. So thoughtful:)
Hard to believe, but it's already been 6 years since we got married. We laugh all the time about how young we really were back then. In a way, we kind of grew up together. We went to dinner last night and enjoyed ourselves immensely. We had so much fun reminiscing about our younger days! We've been friends for 20 years...that's a lot of memories right there!
As if Jackson doesn't already burn enough calories throughout his very busy day, he decided it was time to start working out on the eliptical earlier this week. He got all ready and even had me tie a make-shift headband around his forehead to catch all his sweat.
Seriously, this kid sweats like a maniac!
After his tough workout, it was time to hit the showers. He's actually started showering BY HIMSELF this week. No joke. It's one of the funniest things you've ever seen. I'm pretty sure he turned 8 overnight!
Jackson is turning into such a little water-bug these days. For the past few weeks, he's gone over to Memaw and Poppy's house in the afternoon. Whenever Poppy gets home from work, it's time to hop on in that pool.
I forgot to send his floaties over the other night, but they did just fine.
Maybe it even helped him learn to use his arms more. Last night he was swimming with Jared and doing really well. He went all the way across the pool and back with no help from daddo. We were so impressed!
Jackson is officially a big boy now! He's moved upstairs into his new room!
We got his furniture in this week and the room was painted today. It was so hard to choose the colors to paint his room and I was really nervous it wasn't going to turn out well. No need to worry, though--I love it!
He is really enjoying being out of his crib and has slept pretty well in his new bed. So fun:)
Yesterday afternoon we had some friends over for a fun little swim party. All the kiddos did so good in the pool and Jackson loved having more people to entertain. Here's Judah right before we went outside. This kid was ready for the water!

Keeley, Kayden and their Mommy, Kerri all got an insiders look at Jackson's favorite part of our pool--the waterfall.

They were so cute. They'd hold hands, count to three and then jump off into the water.
As most of you know, we are the proud owners of a very neurotic dog. Think Marley and Me and then back it off just a little bit. For real. She is terrified of storms, so it's a good thing that we were home when this random thunderstorm hit today. She always starts off with panting quite heavily.
In order to "help" her out, Tyson tries to lick the tongue that is dangling out of her mouth. Yuck. Jackson usually pets her gently and says "OK, Sadie, just thunder," as he pets her back.
Today he started off by telling her those same things, but then thought it would be really funny if he acted just like Tyson. Now, I don't think he would actually lick her tongue, but who knows! This was close enough for me!
