So happy to have new toothbrushes from the first dentist visit.

Where Did Summer Go?

It is the middle of August already and I feel like we haven't gotten anything done, fun or otherwise. The kids go back to school in 3 weeks and we are hoping to fit in a camping trip, but free time is sparse.

The kids have finished their Carnegie Center Summer Full of Art classes and loved them. Classes lasted 4 weeks for an hour a day. We are so grateful to have the Carnegie Center in our small town. I will try to get some pics of the finished pieces up soon.

The kids will be returning to Immaculate Conception school for P4 (4 year old) preschool. They will go Mon to Fri mornings. They went Tues and Thurs mornings last year so this will be a transition for them. Kindergarten will be next year (yep, you heard me!), which is all day here, so this will be good for them. There have been some administrative changes at IC for this year, not to mention the financial troubles, so we are keeping a positive outlook for this year. In all liklehood we will be going to public school for kindergarten.

Right now, our thoughts are on planning for birthdays. During this crazy summer I hadn't even thought about and now it is just a month away. Ack!!!!

The kids are great. L & L are thrilled to have new neighbors. Well mostly the 3 year old boy who moved in. Lilly participated in Princess Camp last month, which she loved! One week of princess this and princess that. It is put on by her dance school every summer. If she had any doubts about her princess status before the camp, they certainly were gone after the camp.

Lloyd had no real projects to work on this summer. There just was no time. So to prove his strength, he has taken up carrying Ellie around when needed.

Ellie is growing up. She won't crawl. She scoots on her butt using all 4 arms and legs to propel herself forward. Surprisingly fast. She can say momma, daddy, doggy, and pick up a phone, hold it to her ear and say hi. She is pulling herself up on most things but is still unsteady and forgets to hold on sometimes. It seems she will take after big sis and not walk by her 1st birthday. She loves music, especially Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" and will stop what she is doing to dance to any tune.
