About Me

Plano, TX
Our first child, Caroline, was born June 5th, 2009. She has completely rocked our world. Patty stays home to take care of Caroline full time. Reagan is a computer programmer at PFS Web. We met Jan 9th 2004. Patty's best-friend from high school, Dixie, slyly matched us up. In July of 2004 we moved to Allen, TX for work. We married Oct 29th, 2005 and moved into our current house in Plano the following April. We also have two furry children named Annabell and Oliver. We love to travel. Throughout our marriage we have taken some incredible trips. We haven't gone anywhere with Caroline (other than Tulsa) yet but we're planning a family trip this summer.

Swim Lessons

A couple weeks ago Caroline started swim lessons from our neighbor Renee who teaches in her backyard. Renee has been teaching class for years! There are kids in the neighborhood who are Reagan and my age that have taken classes from her. She is a great teacher. She's loving and wants the kids to have an excellent experience in the water. I'm amazed at how much C learned in only 8 classes. She can "swim" with her water wings for short periods of time. Her head bobs in and out of the water but she knows not to breath the water in and if she keeps kicking her head will stay above the water. The classes ended great but we got off to a rocky start.
I stayed inside with the other moms while the kids were outside with Ms. Renee. This is C screaming and having a fit trying to get away.

She got away! Yes, I'm hiding around the corner so my child can't see me!

I finally went outside to calm her down. We had a little heart-to-heart about how she needed to be brave and finish her class like a big girl. Along with her binky and lovey Angelina she finished her class with minimum tears.

Back in class (notice the paci and Angelina in the water)

The last day of class was 2 days before C's birthday so Ms. Renee hung the birthday flag.

Amazing! She is holding all 3 kiddos in the water.


All smiles!

C had a habit of trying on everyone's shoes during class.

Big girl feeling very proud of herself!
And again trying on shoes!

The last day Ms. Renee gave the kids a special treat: juice! Parker, one of C's good buddies, and C enjoying their treat.
