So much has happened this summer and I haven’t documented the half of it.
The Nuggets can swim. Like, really swim. Put their little faces into the water and swim across the pool to our waiting arms. Take leaping jumps off the edge and swim. This is a major improvement from the initial swim lessons we took last year and earlier this summer. I am absolutely certain that those lessons were important in their success but Suzy’s Swim School in Arlington is in a different league.
Ms. Suzy is a elementary school teacher full time but in the summers she works her magic in the pool. In a total of eight, 30 minute lessons the boys became little fish!
In August, we also took a trip to Broken Bow, OK. I couldn’t live there (this girl doesn’t do country full time) but gosh, I love that place. It’s so stink’n beautiful and it doesn’t hurt that we stay in these gorgeous luxury cabins.
We had a small family reunion on The Hubs’ dad’s side. It was the perfect central location for everyone to drive in and the only problem we had was not enough time together.
The Hubs and I were also honored when our favorite friends asked us to be their daughter’s godparents. Its a big responsibility for the two of us to ensure we lead her in faith by example.
Wrapping up our “last” summer weekend, we felt all kinds of popular because we had three parties to attend on Saturday.
- Miss Harper turned four years old!
- The McDaniel/Wilcox Couple’s Shower
- Autumn’s (good college friend) baby shower
Of course all three parties were in vastly different parts of the metroplex but we made it. Thirty minutes late to each party but we attended nevertheless.
I assisted in hosting the baby shower and I’m gonna just say it, we’re getting pretty good at this whole hosting-showers-thing.
Jenn graciously opened up her always clean, (kid free) beautifully decorated home so we had the best setting. I really enjoy hosting and attending baby showers as I L O V E how our group of friends keeps growing. Life is so good.
The boys started pre-school today but I’ll save that for my next post. What, might you ask, did I do with my time while I was free…? Nothing fancy. Just a work out and a little lunch across town with a bestie and furniture shopping. Shopping where I didn’t chase toddlers around begging (and praying) that they don’t break anything. It was heaven.
