We have had a relaxing summer so far, staying busy doing a lot of not much!
Jadyn has been taking swim lessons and going to Taekwondo. She's also enjoyed a lot of time in our pool.

What has this girl been up to lately?

Enjoying Taekwondo
This is her good friend from Pre-school.

She earned her first stripe on her orange belt

Her only wish for her 8th Birthday was a new "Panda" room. Many hours were spent on that hot pink wall, making curtains, wall hangings ect. She loves it!

She loves 2nd. grade. I work in her class 2 days a week. She really enjoys it and so do I

yes, that's me left in the dust taking this picture of her and her friend at the mall!
She's so grown up.

Her favorite food ever! Noodles. This makes her day if we go for "noodle lunch"

You will find her in this spot most evenings, watching You Tube videos and cracking up.

Jadyn's annual heart check up once again went perfect. Here she is getting a Holter monitor put on for a 24 hour test.
The results were perfect, we couldn't be happier!

Sorry, I'm not so good at updates!

Jadyn had her first professional hair cut today. I've trimmed it several times but I'm not good at getting it even. We had a little over 1" removed. 
Since I've been absent from posting Jadyn has had a birthday! This kid is 8 already!

It was a Merry Christmas!

Our Christmas was once again spent in Portland with family. This girls favorite holiday didn't disappoint. 
Her Elf was naughty this year, Jadyn really enjoyed waking up each morning to see what she had been up to during the night! 
    This was a night when Elf was behaving. 

    The "Giant Panda" was her favorite gift
    Jadyn named her Coco

    She now shares her bed with Coco
