December Hikes

Over the last few days the family and I have been on two hikes.

Tuesday, the kids and I headed out for a short hike in this wonderful warm weather. The boys spend the entire time talking and playing some game together as we walked through the woods.


Yesterday, Daddy Cameron was available to hike with us.

Christmas 2016

This Christmas was a big hit with the boys and also probably one of the most exciting for the adults. The weekend before Christmas while celebrating with extended family, the boys received remote control cars and video games.

Christmas morning was a lot of fun. Thing 1 and Thing 2 both woke up to new bikes sitting in the living room. The boys also received bb guns, a zip line to put in the backyard, and new Dallas Cowboy shirts.

Thing 2 was also really excited about his Chelsea jersey.

Thing 4 received her first doll, which she loved on.

It was a very busy and exciting Christmas day with lots of bb gun shooting and everyone enjoying the zip line, including the boys’ great-grandmother.

November Catch Up

Things have been crazy busy and I am way behind, so what’s new. So here is a very quick update and highlights from the month of November.

They boys played a lot of soccer in November. What’s new? Thing 2’s team won a tournament.

Oh, and the boys’ number 1 cheerleader.

We also celebrated Thanksgiving in South Carolina.

The kids were able to spend time with their cousins.

They also helped decorate Grandaddy Poppy’s Christmas tree.

Just another month Raising the Cameron Clan!



Halloween 2016

Happy Halloween!

Nothing like Trick or Treating in 73 degree weather. Thankfully, none of the kids had costumes that would make them too hot. Thing 1 was Mario again. Thing 2 was Luigi. Thing 3 was Bowser. Thing 4 was Rosie the Riveter.

Gettin’ Our Hike On

Originally the boys were suppose to play in a 3v3 soccer tournament all day long, but that fell through. (I might have been slightly happy about that.) Instead the kids and I planned to go on a hike and have our own soccer tournament instead.


However, not everything went as planned. After I got all 4 kiddos in the car, I went to start it and nothing happened. So instead of heading to a state park to hike, we headed down our driveway and down the road to find a neighbor. Thankfully, there was a neighbor home who was able to help us out. We eventually headed out on an awesome hike in some amazing weather.








We finished the evening with a little soccer in the yard.

Soccer Saturday

Guess where we spent yesterday morning?!?!? Oh, that’s right it isn’t hard to figure out that we spent it at the soccer fields.

Thing 1 played forward and midfield this weekend. He scored a goal and hit the cross bar several times.





Thing 2 played left back and in goal. The highlight of his game was when he pulled a defensive step over the beat a kid.




Thing 3 lead his team to their first victory of the season with several assists and two goals.




All three boys won their games this weekend and had fun. The only one who didn’t have fun might have been Thing 4 who was stung on the lip by a bee. Although it was really swollen yesterday, she is doing great today an it isn’t swollen at all.

Today the kids and I headed out to a science club meeting where they learned about robots. Thing 1 is my science kid and he was super excited for this event.


First the boys learned some background information about robots and watched a couple of demonstrations. However, the most exciting part was actually making “robots.”  Now, according to the information we learned, what they made were not technically robots, but they were super cool anyway. The first one was small.





The second “robot” was a draw bot. Basically, it scribbles when the motor is on. They were most impressed by these.






Oh, and of course Thing 4 hung out and watched all the excitement.


Of course, after we finished with the learning, it was time to play.

Thing 2 Turns 8!

On Tuesday Thing 2 turned 8 years old! The kid has only been counting down to his birthday for a couple of months, just in case I forgot when I gave birth to him.

Thing 2 : “Mom what day is it?”
Me: “It’s August XX.”
Thing 2 : “That means there are only XX amount of days until my birthday.”


In case you didn’t know, Thing 2 is a lot like his daddy when it comes to math. The kid just gets it, most of the time faster than I do. But, I like to claim that Thing 4 has turned my brain to mush.

Besides being pretty amazing at math, Thing 2 is my most cuddly child. He loves his sister “the most” according to him. Yes, there is a battle for that title on a daily basis.


He loves to be outside playing sports, whether it is soccer, golf, basketball, swimming or anything else he can think or convince someone to play with him.


He is also my most intense child. He gets angry big. He gets happy big. He gets excited big. Anything he does it is all out.

For his birthday meal, he chose to go to Waffle House. For some reason the boys think that place is awesome.


After his birthday breakfast at Waffle House, he then was able to pick out his birthday cake, which became his lunch. Don’t worry, he also chose a rotisserie chicken for lunch too. We also had a day off from school, which might have been his favorite part. Sadly, that was the extend of his celebration. All three boys were really worn out from the soccer games in the hot sun and a late trip to watch a PC football game. I think they needed/enjoyed the low key day.

Thing 3’s First Goal of the Season!

As you can tell, I’m a lot behind in writing blog posts. Oops!

Last weekend, all Thing 1 and Thing 3 both had one soccer game, while Thing 2 had two.

Thing 2 has been playing goalkeeper a lot. At least one half of every game he plays if not the whole game. So the fact that he scored a goal was a big deal. So much of a big deal that Daddy Cameron sounded shocked when he did it. I didn’t even get a picture of it, but I got a picture of the celebration.



Thing 1 has been playing a lot of left back this year. However, this past weekend, he played right midfield and assisted with a goal and had a decent shot of goal.




Thing 3 and his poor team are kind of mess. There are so many times that Thing 3’s own team mates take the ball from him. However, he has still managed to score some goals this year.
