A very busy summer

I’ve decided to start a blog so that our families can see what we are up to every day, and of course if anyone else is interested!

As we just passed the unofficial end of summer, it seemed fitting to start with a summer recap! We spent most of it at the pool. The girls and I just love it there! We have made some great friends and Hadley became a fabulous swimmer this summer! She went through 3 levels of lessons and 1/2 way through the summer she was jumping off the diving board and swimming to the side all by herself. Amazing!! I’ve also decided that swimming has been really great for her sensory struggles. We had so many great days and very few meltdowns and I convinced that swimming had a lot to do with it! Yay for great progress!

Emmerson is quite the swimmer too. She loved to spin around in her inner tube but prefers to be in an area where her feet can touch the ground. Hopefully next year she’ll be up for some swimming lessons.

We also went on fun camping trip in Wyoming. Spent a full day at a music Festival in Lyons. Had plenty of play dates with friends at the park, Children’s Museum, mall play area, indoor playgrounds, and friends’ houses. It was a very busy summer! And of course the biggest news of all was finding out in mid July that baby #3 is on the way! I am due around March 25, 2011 and we are very excited to be adding to the family. Life has been a bit crazy lately as I am very tired and the girls are very needy. It doesn’t always make for the best mix! But we are getting it figured out and as I move into the 2nd trimester, hopefully things will get easier.

Now we are back into the swing of school. Hadley started a new Montessori this year and seems to be really loving it. She tells me every day when I pick her up that she has made a new friend! We were worried about the transition but it seems to be going great. Em and I spend our mornings being pretty lazy but I hope to get us out for a daily morning walk now that the weather has cooled and my energy is coming back.

Well, maybe not the most exciting entry but I had to start somewhere, right?! They’ll get better! In the meantime, now you know where to find us if Facebook isn’t your thing!
