Catching Up

I promise I haven't abandoned blogging, yesterday was the most boring day ever and there isn't much new stuff to talk about today, haha. I was so tired, and I still am! We needed a day to catch up on housework and rest, and that's what we did.

So what did we do all last week while I was away? Well, during the day we did A LOT of splashing around in pools, swinging, bbq'ing...all of the normal summer stuff! The kids enjoyed themselves by day, and I was up working on birthday projects by night. I didn't even take a ton of pictures, because I was as "unplugged" as possible during that time. It was a NICE break.


Evelyn has been obsessed with her shadow lately and will stop in her tracks when she sees it. :) Speaking of my oldest daughter...Evie has been asking us daily when we're moving to the "new house." If you're surprised to be hearing about a new house, so am I, haha. There isn't one. But she's ready for a change. I think we all are. We aren't actively looking, but should something come up, for the first time ever...I don't think we'd hesitate to pack up and move. 

When we're out walking Evelyn scouts out potential new homes. "I want to live in that house!" she says. It's funny. Remind me to take a picture of our basement sometime so I can show you exactly why the prospect of moving has scared us for a very long time! ;)

I caught a gnome making sno-cones in our bath tub last week....


We've rediscovered baths lately. The girls usually just take showers, but Crayola bath crayons have changed all of that. They LOVE practicing their letters on the bathtub walls, and I love that they love it. For the first time Evelyn seems really interested in learning the sounds letters make and how to recognize them. Anyway, I'm really impressed with those bath crayons, and I think all kids should have some of them. :) They show up well and wipe away easily. Couldn't ask for anything better!

And that is all that's been happening around here! Tonight is Eric's school night, so after lunch today we'll be going to my parent's house for more swimming and playing. Just another summer day!

Later gators!

I wish that those crayons would clean the tub too (still safe for kids of course) ... ahhh that would be great!!

your kids take showers? oh my gosh - SO jealous! teach me your ways. stella won't take a shower no matter what!

Haha, Cassie...it all started when Evie became terrified of the tub drain a long time ago. It was the only way to get her clean, and then it sort of stuck! I wouldn't recommend instilling fears of tub drains though, baha. It sucked!
