Things are going great this summer. Poor Bob hasn't had much free time since he's either working or going to school himself. He just finished fixing our computer so hopefully we'll get this website back up and running.

We have enjoyed the pool a few times this summer and we will be going to Lagoon in a couple weeks along with our family vacation this year to California. We will be visiting Bob's Uncle Bob and his wife Sharon along with staying at a Condo with the Spence's. Next year will be our big vacation year with DC and a week of Bob's choice for finishing his Master's at the U.

I have REALLY enjoyed attending the Gym almost every day and spending the day with the kids. We look forward to about 2pm when Daddy gets home, then the day just is play day till it's time for bed! :)

This Summer my project for myself was to paint the kids bedrooms. I really love their rooms now and am excited for next year's project... painting something else..

The kids keep me busy and Bob keeps me sane! For my Birthday Bob SPOILED me! He set up a day full of ME time! The kids were babysat by family and I got my hair done, a facial, manicure, pedicure, picked out a dress, dinner at Macaroni Grill AND we say Pirates at the theater (that doesn't happen very often). So Bob is the ultimate Husband!!

Fun Summer!

Mom painted my bedroom in baseballs and my walls are blue! I am still a big helper for Mom & Dad. Mom had her birthday and I like to tell my friends about her nails being painted. I want to paint my nails Blue, but Dad says "No".

I love my new baby cousin Gavin and Gavin just got a new baby kitten Zelda. Braxton and I like to take turns sharing Zelda. Also my Aunt Kate and Joe came with us to a Bee's Baseball game. We were really hoping to catch a baseball. Maybe next time she says.

I have had a fun Summer in the pool outside and with my friends. Kylie is my best friend and I like to remind Mom and Dad that I was just like her too when I was little!

Yes, everything is MINE!! Damon is really good to share with me, but I don't want to share back yet. I have already started taking time-outs for my screaming and throwing behavior. I get frustrated when I can't say what I want and need, but I know a few signs and that helps. I'm a big girl now, I have a toddler bed that I sleep in, and I've even told Mommy when I need to go on the potty. I haven't made it yet, but I am good at telling her. I have really enjoyed the summer and spending time with my friends and cousins!

School School and More School!
