This month has been great! I LOVE July. It's one of the hottest months, there is so much fun to be had in the sun, and most of the time everyone is in a good mood because of all the vitamin D! :) And July in Texas is just the best. I am kind of partial to my Texas sun - always have been, always will be. :) Here are some of our great moments this month! And, of course, our Tot school moments!
|Justin got a fun little toy...well, not so little. Actually it's about the size of me! :)|
|The letter "D"!|
|I have been "trying" to organize for Tot School...We shall see how long this lasts! :) Just trying to figure out a system that works!|
|One of last Monday's projects was pipe cleaner beading with pony beads. It.was.a.hit.|
|Out of order, but here is the foam letter sorting/sticking onto construction paper project!|
|He stayed on this for like twenty minutes straight, just stringing beads along, happily. I had no idea he was so good already!|
|Brookelynn trying really, really hard to string her beads onto her pipe cleaner! :) She is SO close to getting it!|
|Kaleb's creation, done completely by himself! A "snake"! (He came up with the name too!)|
|Foam letter sorting|
|They pulled the chairs up to the window so they could watch the rain like the second rainy day we've had here this month. What a good rain it was, though! They love to watch it, because we don't see it often!|
|Another one out of order, but K was trying to be cool or something. He put the hat on and started acting really funny, almost like he knew it was "cool". Lol. "Sup?"|
|And after the rain, the rainbow! God is good, all the time, ya'll!|
|Sand!!! They LOVE it. Got some funnels this week to try out in it, and I'm so excited!|
|Waterpark! We took my mom with us this day to the Big Spring Aquatic Center, and had a blast. I think the kids are going to be little fish. :)|
|Family photos! My sweet friend Deb came with her sweet boyfriend who is also a photographer, so we got like double the great shots between the two of them. They are both awesome!|
|The letter "F"!|
|Just using beads to shovel and scoop|
|She loved it...so much that...|
|...afterward, the floor looked like this. Oops.|
|But we did get some water action in today. Gotta love the waterhose.|
|Notice her drink. This is where she sets it after she is done, and ready for her nap. :) I love this girl!|
Like I said, we've had a great month. I am almost sad to see it go! Justin was off from work for a few days and we went to the waterpark in Dallas, just the two of us. Nana watched the kiddos for us, and so did Oma for a few days. We have been SPOILED. :) We also had the privilege of being in a good friend's wedding, which was awesome, too. What else...Oh, very, very excited that one of my best friends, Kristine, will be having her baby tomorrow by C section. That's random, I know, but very excited to see her cute little Lily. Kristine has had quite a time with this pregnancy and I know she is very ready to meet her! Pray for her recovery too, if ya'll get a chance and think about it. She is a bit nervous about it. She's had a C section before, but this one entails a bit more, and also involves having to go up a flight of stairs each day. Wow.
That's about all I can recall at this moment. I am ready for August. I think it has great things in store, too - one is that one of my other very best friends, Kelly, is having her baby. SO excited for her, too! Her little one is also a girl.
In September we will make it to Washington for the first time in four years (AND the first airplane trip for the kiddos - PRAY for us!) since I've been back, to see her little one. So very excited for that.
Well, blessings to you all, and happy August, everyone! :) Yay for more sun! (Can you tell what season is my favorite yet???) :)
