End of SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow can't believe our summer is coming to an end. Riley will be starting school August 1st as a full fledge kindergartner. So, I thought I would blog about our summer. Johnny was able to spend so much time at home this summer since I kept on nannying. Riley went to soccer camp with him and to VBS at First Baptist Woodstock. She loved both so much. She also became such a good swimmer. We got her lessons through Mtn. View aquatic center and her instructor Ms. Cat was awesome. She gave her the confidence she needed to become a little fish. Swim team next summer is a must, that was one of the main things we hoped to accomplish with her this summer.

Reese has become such a cool funny little girl. She has lost her baby look and looks so much like a little girl...kinda makes me sad but its so awesome as well. We were hoping to get her fully out of diapers but that hasn't fully happened. She does go a lot on the potty but we aren't fully ready to get rid of the diapers. I am hoping by the time she is 2 1/2 we will be out of diapers which puts us at October. Riley was fully pottied trained at 2 1/2 and I would like her to be there as well. I also toyed with the idea of converting her crib into the big girl bed. Our trip to the beach and having her sleep in a big girl bed made me realize that she wasn't ready. She got up way too much and she ended up sleeping in our bed more then hers. She will be starting school this year at First Baptist Woodstock at their Wee School two days a week (August 16th to be exact), we can't to meet Ms. Rita her teacher.

For our vacation this year my wonderful parent's sprung for a house on the beach at Cape San Blas, Fl. We had a week to soak up the sun and enjoy each other. It was great the water was so calm that kids were able to get in and enjoy it. They spent time in the pool and played hide and go seek with my neice Sami. I was so excited cause I got to see dolphins, sting rays, baby sharks, so many things in their own element. Riley and Reese even held a fish for the first time and actually loved it. The beach was great and very secluded. I would highly recommend it.

Lastly, we found a church that we love. We have started to attend Fellowship Bible Church in Roswell. We were trying to find somewhere that the kids would love to attend, and I think we found it. Especially Reese she loves her class and the teachers that are in her room. She gets excited and asks to go to church. Riley as well as shy is she is she just goes right on in and tells us all that she does and learns. It puts a smile on my face.

So that was our short summer in a nutshell. I hope for Riley's sake we spent the two months doing things that were fun and memorable for her.
