Maintaining Balance

Because it is completely in my blood to be "all things girly", I have to really work hard to keep Karson and Campbell balanced. By balanced, I mean exposed to things that are....not so girly. Most of you that know me, know that it takes major self-control every evening after bath time to not put a bow in their hair that would match their jammies! I know, I know, it is a sickness...I'll admit it.

In the past few weeks, Karson has gotten to go fishing with Rus. SHE LOVES IT! Now keep in mind that she does have a Barbie fishing pole (that lights up when you cast it), but by golly, my girly-girl is FISHING! The first time they went was out on some land in Bartlesville. Thought you might want to see a few pics!

This is Kars with her new fishing pole! (She's posing like Barbie)

Kars took this one of Rus. (Sorry I cut off your head, Daddy!)

Okay, so even though I did not go with them on the fishing excursions, I still felt really good about the fact that she was doing something "outdoorsy" and well-rounded! And, since I'm feeling so good about the fact that she's balanced, I will also show you a picture from her recent dance recital!

This is her class waiting to perform. (From L-R) Jacey, Lindsey, Mia, Courtney C., CourtneyP., Karson, Addi, and Elizabeth

But let's just be honest. Bless both of their little hearts. With a mommy that dresses them like this most days (this was before church on Sunday), there really isn't a lot of hope for being anything but a wee bit girly!!!
