I'm getting to be kind of a lazy blogger. I think it's because it's summer! But, one major noteworthy thing to document is the incredible week that Nathan and I just had at the beach. ALL BY OURSELVES. I still can't believe I just wrote that. A whole week at the beach without either of our children close by. They were in the wonderful, eager hands of their grandparents so we had nothing to worry about. It was heavenly, relaxing, peaceful, lazy, really too good to be true. No cooking, cleaning, email checking, or chores of any kind, just the beach and sand and fun drinks and good restaurants and each other. Sort of like another honeymoon, but a very much appreciated honeymoon this go-round. It's been a little hard to get back into reality! We missed our little ones soooooo much, by mid-week I really couldn't wait to see them. They of course were completely fine without us though!

Today was our last day of school! Last day of the bunny room for Watson and last day of 2 yr preschool for Hayes. They have both had a fantastic year. I can't believe how much they have grown from September until May. It just shows you how incredibly fast your kids grow up. But am I sad about this year ending? That would be a NO. I am way more excited about it being summertime. Hayes' 1st day-September 2011-she ran out of her classroom screaming down the hall after me. It was terrible!

So THANKFUL and BLESSED to be their mommy! What an awesome privilege and responsiblity from the Lord. They make me smile and laugh everyday and I wouldn't trade the hard, silly, crazy, exhausting, wild days with them for anything! We love these babies with all our hearts!

Hayes had her last ballet class for this year last Thursday. She has really enjoyed it all year and I am so glad. I think it's good for her to be a part of an organized group without me and to learn to listen and follow instructions. I know she'll miss it this summer, or she may mainly miss the sucker she gets afterwards every week! She's a precious ballerina. I can say that because I'm her mama. She just broke the strings off one of her shoes, just in time for her recital next week.

Watson is 14 months now and if you ever read anything on my blog you would probably know he is such a mess! He certainly has a few nicknames here just like his sister, but his latest one is the boy named Sue-you know that country song? Well he is rough and tough and wild and silly and loves sticks, rocks, dirt, anything outside, climbing, wrestling, and everything else boylike you can imagine. But the boy prefers Hayes' old pink lovies to sleep with and her old pink paci. And he loves the bottles, sippy cups just don't appeal to him yet. So the funny part is that he is all over that pink stuff and he will straight up fight you for it if you try to take them away. A few weeks ago we lost his blue paci somewhere in the car on the way to church. So, what do you do? Just give him the girly purple one that we use as a backup and maybe they won't have to give it to him in the nursery-hahha right! So I picked him up after church and the nursery worker (who was a different one than we dropped him off with) asked if that was his purple paci. Yes, we give our son pink and purple pacis, but only in desperate situations! Apparently he got into a little scuffle with another child who was trying to take it. No way was he letting that purple paci go! But thankfully this week we are down to just the blue and brown loveys and all blue pacis in the house. Pink ones are out of reach!

After bathtime is one of the best parts of our day-everybody is fed,clean, happy (or WILD) and ready for bed, after the Sprout goodnight show!
