Can you believe it is the end of summer already??? Where did the time go! The heat is breaking, every now and then, and kids are back in school (some, not mine). We met our friends at the pool for our last swimming trip of the summer.... sounds kind of sad! I am so thankful for the time that we did have and watching the kids grow in their friendships and swimming abilities but I'm sad that this time has come to an end. As much as I'm ready for a more set schedule and some down time for me, I'm sad that our carefree days by the pool are done.

So after dinner at JJ's Ashley went with us on our next big adventure..... we went to look at a cat off of Craigslist. I know, I know.... I'm crazy! We were looking for something to help take the pressure off of Skip. Addyson does NOT leave that poor dog along. I feel like all he does is bark and growl and all I do is yell at the two of them. We were looking for something playful and easy to take care of and we found....

How do you survive day #20 something of daddy being gone??? You have almost every moment of the day scheduled! Ok, first thing in the morning is not so scheduled since I'm not a morning person. Usually Owen will get up and watch his show and eat his cereal by himself and let me rest, watch my show, or blog until I feel like I can tackle our day. Then he wants to know, "Where are we going?" He is now use to being on the go too!

So I'm a bit lazy these days.... can you blame me??? I try to have our days busy but mornings... I"m lazy. If the kids ask for things I tell them, "In a minute." or "Next time I get up." and then I'm in no rush to get up..... especially when what they want is batteries to fix a noisy toy!
He successfully got the back of the toy open and found new batteries to put in there! I dreaded the noisy toy working about but couldn't help but be so proud of him....
...and he was super proud of himself!! Little man is growing up!

At the picnic I had several people ask me if I was about to have the baby and told me I look SO ready. I had to break the news that I still had 4 weeks left. I couldn't figure out why I was being asked so much all of a sudden and getting such responses that people look at me with big wide eyes like they feel sorry for me. Afterall, all I normally see is the front of my belly and it doesn't look so big to me! I've also had lots of people tell me that I don't look pregnant in the face or from behind... it is just when you see my belly. So....after the picnic we took the kids back to Nammie's house so she could help with bath time and I got a glimpse of a side view of my belly....
Now, I see why people were asking!!! LOOK at the size of that belly!!!

While Brad was in Brazil for his 12 trip he found out he was going to have to come home and turn around and go right back. I was SO bummed. We were suppose to go with him on the road for a week and I was looking forward to that time together. Now, he was leaving and we were staying..... not what this pregnant momma wanted to hear. I tried to look at the bright side, at least he got to come home for the weekend (despite many people asking, "Why doesn't he just stay?" He doesn't JUST stay because this momma needed a break and these kids needed to see their daddy!!!)

How do you stay connected with your daddy who has been out of town for 2 weeks and is now gone on another trip for 5 days?
The kids hear the computer ringing and them come running to talk to their daddy!

Now that he is officially a swimmer that puts his face in the water he thinks he needs goggles. He asked me yesterday for a pair as we were shopping for stuff for the hot tub. We went by Nammie's work to say Hi and he told her we were shopping for goggles. Right away she went to her purse to give him and Addyson money so they could buy their own goggles and Owen was so proud! It was cute.

Look how far our little swimmer has come this summer!!!
He puts his face under water and swims!!! Not just a quick swim, a long one!!!
He comes up for air, wipes his face off, and does it all over again!!! I'm so proud of him!
And he is now a huge jumper!! He loves to jump in and...
And while Owen is jumping and splashing, Addyson prefers to be swinging.....naked! Silly girl!

Today, finally, there was a break in the heat! It rained and we didn't let that stop us! Actually, we enjoyed it and played in it while it was so cool outside!!! The kids were out riding cars this afternoon when it started to drizzle. We just kept riding!
It was cute though, they each got their bath towels and put them on so they could stay dry!

I remember as a little girl wanting to fix my mommy's hair. I was probably around 8 when I really remember asking her to brush her hair and wanting her to fix mine. Maybe I did it younger, not sure.
It was a really sweet moment!!!
After that I quickly realized that nothing is really safe in this house. She now knows how to move things or go get her step stool in order to be able to reach whatever she wants to.... I'm sure that means she will soon be using her step stool to be a great big sister and help with baby. Gotta love our sweet little helper!
