Two of them

I have 2 girls for 3 1/2 hours every day now. It is new for them and I can focus more on their age activities. They are best friends and also rivals for who can get moms attention more. Such a balancing act. Love our girls. We are practicing getting every single thing ready the night before school so mornings I am not frantic. For the most part, it has really helped. Nathan started teaching seminary. He invested in a projector so he can show things on his computer. He is enthused and I love getting up early so I am actually ready in the am. He had 19 kids on his first day! These are good kids!!

This reminded me of Grandma:). Don't see that name everywhere.

On another note. Sadie has been so curious lately, I told her I might have to start calling her George. She has been taking Nathan's ties and sneaking them around everywhere: as a scarf , or rope or whatever. She dumped goldfish all over my floor. Taking my jewelry and makeup. Maybe she was ready for preschool?

Grandpas 90th

Just there for a day or two, we had a great time, celebrating grandpas 90th birthday, seeing my parents and cousins and aunts and uncles. My mom must have helped the girls a thousand times making there balloon animals. They loved it!! Fun to watch the olympics for a bit, and spend time with family. Thank you to Nathan for making the drive with us!

Swimming at grandmas

A new hot tub heater

Dear and the girls

They loved riding down to the garden and picking potatoes with their Grandpa. Dallas is really good with the shovel. The others got hot pretty quick. Then their was a rainstorm which we loved counting down the thunder from the lightning flashes. This trip we forgot the pack and play. Now we know Layla can do the floor just in case.

4th of July

We watched this sweet dog Ruby for July. We got to watch fireworks with the Pfister's and see Anna and her family.

Sadie hospital #2

Croup is a scary thing with Sadie, but this time was the worst. I now know what stridor really sounds like and it's not a sound I like to hear from her in the middle of the night. Thanks to 3 breathing treatments and steroids, she could go home. 24 hours is long enough. I love the staff there though. They are fabulous. Makes me want to join them.
