My sweet Cooper. I always say he is the sweetest boy ever but is still such a boy. He says "I love you" about a thousand times a day. He says it so often I sometimes think he doesn't even realize it. This past weekend he says, "Mom you know what?" This is always followed by "I love you" and sure enough that was what he said. Then he said, "Mom do you know why I love you?" I said, "No but I would love to know why you love me." His response, "Because you show me you care about me every day." Of course that earned him a big hug and kiss! He's just so darn cute. Tonight he was saying his prayers and he always thanks God for our food, warm home, etc and tonight he ended his long list of thanks with, "and most importantly thank you for just a little bit of sugar." I had no idea that sugar was so important to him. However, I had allowed him to pack 3 squares of a Herschey's Bar in his lunch tomorrow and that must have been a bigger deal than I thought!
Last night was Coop's 1st Music Program. 30 Minutes or so before the program was to begin, the electricity went out. Mrs. Bonner, the amazing music teacher, acted as if it was no big deal and just moved the program outside. The kids loved it. We were fortunate to have a beautiful evening. The kids just gathered around and sang and many danced. Coop usually hardly sings but last night he sang and danced the entire night. It was pretty funny! That was followed by a trip to Orange Leaf for what seemed like the entire school was there. It was so fun to watch the kids with their friends and watching them having so much fun. I truly feel like we are surrounded by some of the most amazing families. I love our Deerfield friends!

So obviously we made it back from Disney and back to the normal chaos. We had a great time! Since we've been back we have had a lot of fun. Terry and Raelynn had Daddy Daughter Date Night which is always a good time and Coop and I had our own date night.
This week Chandler has spent the week with the kids over Spring Break. We have tried to do their annual spring break surprises but Raelynn is getting to good and has figured them all out based on my very difficult hints.

Today we headed out to the water park we missed out on the second day we were here due to weather. It was a crazy busy day because before we left we had to pack up and check all our bags. The water park was fun but swimming with sharks was not what Raelynn expected, pretty disappointing. I'm not sure what she expected but it definitely lacked the danger element for her. After the water park we headed back to the hotel to change and get on the bus back to the airport. Unbelievable our trip is over already. This vacation was definitely all about the kids and NO relaxing for the adults. The kids had a great time though and I was very proud of them both. Raelynn is scared of nothing and can talk to anyone. Sometimes I watch her in amazement. Coop feared much less than I thought he would and continues to be the more reserved and loving child! I love our time together and as we head to the airport it makes me sad to know tomorrow they will return to school and I will unpack us and get ready to retur.n to out everyday lives. Even though we leave the magical land behind, I know our lives in general are truly full of magic!
