Seven Years All Ready!

Our little Jocelyn turned Seven today. I can't believe it. Where has all the time gone?Here she is at age one doing her famous toe touch (with a soggy diaper)
Here she is again still flexible a few short years later.
Jocelyn is such a wonderful big sister. She is always nice and very helpful with her brothers and sister. She is a good cleaner and likes to organize. She is a hard worker and always tries to do what is right. She enjoys dancing , gymnastics and swimming and reading. She is such a JOY to have in our family!

Did a little swimming and lunch with Jocey's friend Liviya and her mom Amelia

Hope you had a Happy Birthday Jocelyn. We Love you!

Did I ever Tell You...

How much I LOVE the Mayo Clinic! Their unbelievable care for their patients. Friendly and helpful staff. Their Organization and efficiency. Their computer and tracking system, their waiting rooms. Good communication between front desk and the Back. Good communication with their patients. Also Nice friends to watch some of your kids while you go to the doctor. And everything done in a timely matter. I guess i took some of this for granted and did not realize how great the Mayo Clinic's care really is... until you experience care that is- well, we will just say Not So Good. ( to make a long story really short) I will always miss you Mayo Clinic!
