1. EVERY school day Summer and Forrest leave the house a few minutes early and say, "we'll be at the bus stop!" I then pick them up by the mailbox at our long driveway entrance. Love them.

2. Caught red-handed! Saw light peeking through Summer's bedroom door as I was checking on the kids this evening.

3. Summer didn't want to go to swim team tonight but she didn't hold it against me for long - each lap she would sneak in the heart sign to me on the sidelines. Love her.

4. Post dinner neighborhood bike ride. Is it summer yet?

5. For 2 years, EVERY morning I drop off my Forrest at school, I give him a hug and a kiss and then as he turns to head out the door, he turns right back and says, "kiss-hand, mama" - which means he wants me to kiss the palm of his hand... from the book, "The Kissing Hand". I never, ever will forget it.

6. She's almost a 4th grader! My sweet Summer this morning. I went outside to find her just like this, eating her cereal before the last day of school. The sign of a very happy and excited girl.

7. Father's Day. These little kids have been blessed with the most loving, kind, fun and devoted dad. He puts his family first and I'm grateful that his example is what they will always associate with what a husband and father should be.

8. First day of summer camp. I gave them both lots of options but they each had their mind set. They wanted to go back to Marine Quest camp again. Love these two.

9. Swim team season has officially begun!

This is a very random update. Just some things to catch you up on...
The rest of our summer has been filled with lots of time outside. If we're not at the pool, we're at the lake or the beach. Between all of the water activities my washing machine is running all the time.
