Checkin out cheer camp

I think I mentioned that there have been lots of cheerleaders hanging out at the Beach Club. They are at their summer camp, and Ellie is very interested in every bit of it! Since I paid my dues earlier this week, at camp, I was happy to let Mary Allison take a turn at hauling her up to watch the competitions.

I happened to be coming by and forgot to leave my camera with MA! I love that my sitter even knows how important it is to document our days with photos. She usually snatches it up and starts clicking when she realizes some fun memory is being made and I don't have my camera in hand! And know what else she does?! She takes a daily photo with her cellphone and texts it to me at work every day. She is now our summer babysitter! I think I may have mentioned that I took them out of daycare just for the summer, so we can get in a lot of swimming and crafts, and BOTH girls will be taking dancing starting next week. I can hardly WAIT to see how Gabbi Girl does! That'll be the cutest thing!

I am so lucky to have so many great sitters. They all seem to love my girls. They also can read me like a book and when my "plate is full", they swoop in and take them off my hands. I don't mean to sound like a lightweight mama, but hey... if you have sitters, then it's nice they know when sitting is necessary! And they have been absolute lifesavers on the beach! My girls haven't missed a beat.. sandcastles, playing in the surf, heading to the pool,... and Todd and I haven't either!! Our sitters have allowed us to hang with our good friends on the beach when it is nap time or time to go up for a sandwich, or just when they need a break from the beach and are headed to the pool. Thank you KK, CoCo, Mary Allison, and Julianne.

I know you worry that people might think you 'pass' your girls off too much but we understand. People are constantly posting about 'how do you do it all'. I understand that's why you have all these amazing 'babysitters' in your life. They are there to allow your girls to be a part of your life but have the option to create their own memories also. I treasure my boys and loving having them a part of all I do. Yet I'm luck to be blessed with special people in my life that are there to lend a hand. How fortunate you are to have someone that can fulfill each of your girls wishes. How great for them to be able to rest when they need to, swim in the pool when they want to, and swim in the ocean when they want to and not have to wait for their sister to have the same plan. Enjoy this time with your girls and I assure you I'm not judging and wouldn't mind having such great babysitters in my life.

Cheerleaders that go to Varsity Cheerleading Camp will help to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. I know that you've got to be loving that, Mo!

"This year Varsity, the leader in instructional cheerleading and dance team camps, is teaming up with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® to support its mission of finding cures for children fighting cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

All incoming campers have been asked to bring five donation letters with them to camp to send to family and friends in the hope of raising essential funds for the world renowned children's hospital. All campers that bring their five letters to camp will receive a special Team Up for St. Jude pin."

You are so fortunate to have those sweet babysitters! I would love to meet a sweet, responsible teenage girl who would come play with my baby girls. I know that is such a huge help! Loving all the posts!

You are fortunate to have such great girls as babysitters and mama's always need help and 'time-aways'; so why not utilize such a great resource!
