Having some fun...

I haven't blogged in a while. I guess we have been just having too much fun in our little family.

J is in swim lessons. He took to the water like a little fish. He really likes it, so much so that he has signed up for the next level of swim lessons. I am glad that he likes it.

S now has 5 teeth. She is also talking up a storm. Mostly it is babbling, but she can say Mommy, Daddy, (J, go, more, uh oh, nana, papa, ball, bye bye and some others.

Scott and I are doing well, working hard. Sometimes I wish that we could be off during the summer months like the kids will be. We just didn't choose that kind of career did we? Oh well.

So that is pretty much the last couple of weeks in a nutshell. I am going to *try* and blog more... Get some of the silly things that are on my mind out. (it is hard to watch the news all the time without forming opinions on what is going on around you).

Stay tuned...

Summer

I love summer-time. Playing outside, pools, bbq, family, fun and fireflies. I have enjoyed finding fireflies with J. Scott has caught a couple, so J has seen them up close. So cool.

So this Saturday I am going to have a garage sale. I am nervous, feel like I am not ready for it but whatever. I am going to do it! Tomorrow I will clean out the upstairs. Everything that is garage sale material is being stored in the dining room. Thursday (while S sleeps) I hope to get some of the garage done. Then Friday will be a total catch up day to get ready. I am kind of nervous but what can I do. I am going to have it in the front yard. I need to make signs and go to the city for sign permits. Why is it so difficult? But I don't want to not have a permit and have the code lady pull up my sign!

Here is a quick picture post.


We had our annual photo for the grandparents. It was nice. The kiddos looked great!

I love S's hair! I love being able to put pigtails in it!


And noticeably missing are my wonderful nieces. Not gonna comment on that any further!!!!!

J had his last day of preschool! How exciting! On the last day they hold a picnic...


S really enjoyed the swings!

Katie! Finally a picture with her not telling me "No!"


Jackson and Bryce! I am going to miss that boy. He is quite funny!


J and his school mates climbing.




And last but not least........ Mr. Brian was able to HOLD S! And I have proof!



If you don't already know. S does NOT like Mr. Brian. For the longest time, every time she sees him she would scream. Not sure why? But it was funny. Then slowly, she would just bury her head in us, so he couldn't see her. Then she would look with only one eye. The one day she just didn't run crying! I thought we were making progress! Finally he got a smile. And now... Well, see for yourself. She finally got brave enough to see him up close.
Silly baby!
