1 down, lots more to go!!

Well, my first summer break is over.  School starts Monday.  I am pretty ready--I'm gonna miss being lazy and having all day to do what I want, but I'm ready to get back into a routine and my kids really need it, ha!

Jordan is starting pre-k and I'm beyond excited for her, she is about to bust at the seams with excitement! Its gonna be really fun for her!  I'm taking it really well, I think, because she is going to my school.  I don't know why, but I think that makes a big difference.  Its kind of crazy to think that she is old enough to be in pre-k, and it feels more like kindergarten because its at a real elementary school, but I'll survive. Ha!

So, I really started slacking in July on the photo taking, I just got lazy I guess.  It got hot...really hot.  We had several days of 110 degree weather and it was just too hot to do much of anything, even swim! So I'm blaming the heat.  I do need to wrap up our summer, which isn't much.  We pretty much took it easy the rest of the summer.  With the extreme heat, I didn't get everything on the Summer To Do list accomplished, but we still had a blast!!

I'm really looking forward to all the future summers our family will have together--we are so blessed!

So, to wrap up--

Jordan had to have some dental work done in July (ack!) but she did SOOO great!!!  I was so very proud of her, it was so painless and she was just the best patient ever!!  The laughing gas and getting to watched Tangled while the whole thing was going on, helped a lot too! :-)

We did do some swimming in July, just not as much :)

This summer has been really fun for Jordan because her to best friends moved back in next door and since they've been back, she has pretty much not separated from them, they literally have spent 8 hours a day playing together and its just been really fun for all of us to see them all together again.  Hayden has enjoyed it also!!

Another thing that slowed my picture taking this summer was the introduction of the iphone---I pretty much use it as my camera now, so next post is going to be my iphone picture clean up, ha!!

Hope you all enjoyed your summer as much as we did!! I'm so thankful to be able to spend this time with my family, I feel so blessed!!

Have a great weekend!
