** Swimming and being out all day in 106* temperatures will wear. you. out. 

** I love to hear this little miss talk. She has the sweetest little voice. She calls Sophie "Fof" and Lawson "Guy." Cutest thing ever.

** But two of my favorites has to be her little ok answer... "Kay..." and her thinking it over... "Umm..."

** And of course, "Mommmeeee... up. Mommmeee... up."

** Whoever thought of vinyl tablecloths was a genius.

** I love Little People. They're just happy, sweet toys.

** 9 kids under the age of 11 can make an awful lot of noise. (Fun pictures of our days with cousins coming soon!)

** I have so much blogging to catch up on! Cousins, swim lessons, a trip to a dairy, fireworks, rockets, swimming... so much fun stuff!

** I just started reading my first book this summer. I think Christmas was the last time I read a book? I have a whole list I want to get through this summer.

** Fleas are no fun. Really, really no fun. They are making my nice, clean, de-crapified house feel yucky.

** My sweet baby woke up this morning all covered in hives. They don't seem to bother her, but they sure don't look cute.

** I have no idea why she calls him "Guy." But it's cute. And funny.

** Average Joe's Gym... Happy Father's Day. =) This, along with a little remote beeper we put on the TV remote... hoping I will stop getting texts when I am gone saying, "Where is the remote?!"

** We have been so bad about reading this summer. We used to read before bed all the time. Too many late bedtimes, I think.

** I found out my thyroid is off. Too low, I think?? I'm really hoping that's the cause for all my hair falling out and breaking off. Really, really hoping. (and hoping that the meds will stop it!)

** I feel like we have so much less STUFF in our house now. (This isn't our house, by the way.) I love that feeling.

We've been busy too, this was our first full week of all being home together, still navigating boundaries and such. My summer reading order came from Amazon on Sat. and I delved right in.
Happy Summer!
