Oops! October

OK - I some how managed to not post about October, so let me make up for that oversight...

We were able to attend Family Camp held at Camp George Thomas. La looks forward to this every year because she really likes to camp! Lots of fun was had by all!

Then Last Frontier Council celebrated their 100th year, so RTC & Scott went and camped on a different weekend. RTC was able to meet Reed Timmer and represent their pack in the flag ceremony. So grateful for our 221 Pack friends!

WatchD.O.G.S is a program at our school and Scott served on Halloween. He had a great day with both kids. He enjoyed helping their teachers.

Finally it was Halloween! What fun to go trick-or-treating with friends! We had Princess Anna & a soldier this year. Now they're making plans for Halloween 2015!!

Yes, it's fall once again in Oklahoma...that means the leaves are turning, mornings are becoming more crisp, and Football is everywhere!

Here's what the Copeland's were up to in September...warning....if you don't like photos you might as well stop now!

Labor Day was on September 1st. This would be the last day our neighborhood pool would be open until May 2015 so we took full advantage of it! Both kids grew physically and confidence wise over the summer and are just amazing. We even got Uncle Barry in on the action!

Swimming gives way to our fall sports which centers around OU Football.  Here they are on the second game of the season! Usually Scott doesn't sit down, but it was halftime.

It's also time to order your Cub Scout Popcorn!
If you need/want some, we're still taking orders!
This cutie started soccer with some friends.
I don't know how good her game is, but she sure is cute!

Since February he had a dental appliance
in his mouth - it was removed and he
was ridiculously happy about it!

These are photos from Spirit Week. They participated in
Crazy sock day (no photos oops!), Favorite Team Day,
PJ Day, & Crazy Hair/Hat Day. They did enjoy it!

Spirit Week ends up with our Roosevelt Run. Most schools call it a jog-a-thon, here at Roosevelt, it's our Run. It's the only PTA fundraiser of the year. I'm sure it's a crazy day for the teachers, but the kids sure have fun!

The last activity we had was a birthday party for a friend of La's. Her party was at Elevation Trampoline in Edmond.  They had a great time bouncing!!

I'm tired just reliving it! Only 3 more months of this year and that's amazing for me to realize.

August...we're in the home stretch now!

Ah...the dog days of summer!

Well, actually, those days are turning into the busy days of fall! August wasn't as jam packed as July that's for sure.

We attended the wedding of what is in essence our Goddaughter Wendy. However, I didn't do a good job of getting a photo of the happy couple. We spent the weekend in Tahlequah, OK for the wedding and La managed to loose her second tooth inside Wal-mart. Yes that's right her brother knocked out her tooth in Wal-mart and didn't see where it went, so I her dutiful mother crawled on the floor until I found it. Geez!

To help our friend Randy take his mind of his little girl's wedding we went out and shot some targets! 
Here's RTC shooting a .22. Now I don't know if we'll ever get him to shoot his bb gun again!

This is me firing his AK. That had a bit of a kick!
Here's him with the AK. I think he liked it a lot!!!

The next event was school starting. We are so lucky 1)to live within walking distance of our elementary school; and 2)to have such awesome teachers! 

I don't know who is allowing my kids to grow up, but it needs to stop! How can I have a kindergartener & a 4th grader?

They both have a great fondness for their teachers. For that I'm grateful!

Since school starts before Labor Day Weekend, we took the kids out to celebrate the long holiday with my mom & sister. Great Wolf Lodge here we came! 

We adult ladies had a spa appointment so we didn't want to leave her out. She had her own pedicure in the kids' spa! She had soooo much fun!

What great memories we made! Grammie swam with us in the "lazy river" and wave pool. Aunt P went down slides and was dragged around the "lazy river" as well! Fun was had by all!!!

Great way to end summer that's for sure!!!!
