Lawsie's  1st Year
Lawson's first year has gone by in a flash.  So many happy moments, engraved in the memory banks forever.  This sweet little baby has added more joy to our lives, than we possibly could have imagined.  She may be the CABOOSE, but she is not to be left behind.  You might say, Lawson is in charge.  
Sister's love begins and lasts forever
Sanders (3) Lawson (brand new)

 Sanders is making sure the nurse does everything right.

Christening Day.  the day Lawson was dedicated to God.  A very special day.
Celebrating Sanders' 4th birthday at the Grand Hotel.  We had a Grand time indeed.

Lawson loves the water.  Splashing around at the Splash pad.  Oh so fun!
Because this basket is in her way.  Maybe if I stretch, I can reach it!

Because I'm getting so big.

Lawsie is 1!!

These two make my heart smile

Lawson is ONE

Now There Are Four

Camp Gane is growing on up. Kennedy Jane enjoys tennis.  Kallie loves being pampered.  Sanders sometimes poses.  Lawson is snugly and oh so sweet. Who knew 4 was the magic number of Camp Gane Board of Directors?
My lap and heart overflows with sheer pleasure.

It's a Wrap

Kennedy Jane and Kallie demonstrated some of what they learned at Dance Camp, at Gayle' Studio of Dance. They had a great time.
The Gang was all there to watch their performance. Lawson made her debut at the dance performance at the age of 3 weeks. She slept the entire time. Good for her.
Sanders loved seeing the "Big Girls" dance, but was a bit dissatisfied that she couldn't join them and show off her moves. After all she is Big now....3 years old.
Congratulations to "The Big Girls".  Kallie plans to continue dance this fall. She chooses ballet.

Keeping Up With the Reids

Help me welcome Lawson Ryann Reid to Camp Gane.  She now serves as a full member of the Board of Directors of Camp Gane. We couldn't be more excited and proud of the newest member.
Sanders makes the greatest big sister, and now joins ranks with the Big Girls, Kennedy Jane and Kallie.  Sanders points out that she is not a baby. She will forever be my Baby Grand. Lawson is the caboose.

Another 1st in the Books

Kennedy Jane played in her 1st tennis tournament, at Gulf Shores.
We loaded up very early Saturday morning, to slide in just in time for her 8:00 a.m. match.  She got off to a rough start, but everybody has to start somewhere. The learning curve is very steep. Her 2nd and 3rd match, though she lost, was a huge improvement. She said she had a blast.  That's the important part.
And she looked very cute!

Kennedy Jane has been taking tennis lessons for a little over a year.   She 1st participated in tennis clinics, and caught the tennis bug.  She loves tennis, and that makes me happy.

Starting in Apil, she started hitting with a coach.  She has improved with each lesson. It was just a few days ago, Kati and Ali we're learning to play tennis. It served them well through high school and Jr. College.  Tennis was my game many moons ago.  I suppose you could say, it runs in the family.

We had big plans to spend the rest of the day on the beach.  Another 1st!  For the first time, there was no room on the public beach.  Parking was nonexistent.  I suppose, a few other folks wanted to go to the beach.

The day was salvaged by friends over to swim with Kallie and Kennedy Jane.

My Big girl is growing on up. Got braces today.  She was a bit anxious, but as always, she braved-up, and handled it like a pro.  In a blink, her teeth will be lined up and ready to shine for life. I'm very proud of Kennedy Jane.  She is kind, smart and very pretty, braces and all.

Today was movie day at Camp Gane.  All 3 Grands enjoyed movie and pop corn. Next up was Chick-fil-A.  Kallie and Sanders passed the afternoon away playing, while Kennedy Jane was at the orthodontist.  Baby Grand and I snuck in a long nap, while the big girls rested in their rooms.

To finish out the day, we invited the Moms, to join us for supper at the "Time".

Kennedy Jane's Thoughts

Hi, this is Kennedy Jane. At Camp Gane we have a nickname system....mine is Big. I'm the oldest of three grands. We have another baby coming in July. We have a tight schedule here. We don't have Sanders on Mondays and Tuedays. Monday, we go to the Semmes library for summer programs at 1:30. Tuesdays, we go to Gales dance studio for a 10:00 to 4:00 dance camp for 6 weeks. Then, Wedensday, Thursday, and Friday come and we get Sanders for the rest of the week. Wedensday, is when we go to the Moore Branch Library and go to Storytime with Mr. Butch. Then, we are off to Polemans Bakery for a chicken salad sandwich and a cookie afterwards. Then, Thursday comes we go to Carmike Cinemas to see the movie that they have on. They have this program that has most popular movies, but they are old. Friday is just a lay around day. We usually go to either Sanders or our house to play for the day. Being the oldest of three grands, I have to say, it feels like a party everyday!
