Two peas in a pod...


Symen, Jim, and Grandpa took the kiddos camping last weekend. They went up to Forest Lakes area. They rode quads, played in the dirt, and sat by the campfire. And, what camping trip is not complete without s'mores. The kids had a blast and are looking forward to the next trip.
I stayed home with Krew and we cleaned house and did a little shopping. It was very quiet around here and I missed my family.

Let the schooling begin...

Zane has started preschool this year. He was so excited!! The older kids started before him, so everyday I would hear "Mom, do I go to school today?"
On his first day he ran into class and said "see you later Mom." He is doing very well. His teacher says he is very friendly, shares well, and is a smart little guy. He is loving school, however, I already miss my Zaner.

Garrit's new trick...

Garrit has been practing and has learned how to tie his own shoes.

10 Months...

Here I am at 10 months. I am in to everything. My favorite is my mom's bathroom drawer. I love to dump everything out and eat the q-tips. I am quick on my crawling and pulling myself up on everything. I love to talk. I can say, dad, Garrit, and NO-NO. I am a copy cat. If someone is clapping, dancing, or laughing I am trying to do it too.
This month my mom and dad found out the hard way that I am allergic to peanuts. After some testing I am allergic to eggs, milk, and peanuts. We are having a hard time adjusting my diet.
And as of August 20th, I have taken my first 2 steps. Another couple of weeks and I will be walking.
Life is good as always. I am happy, healthy, and very loved.
Until next month.

Backin up a bit...

This summer Garrit and Zane went to swim lessons. I LOVED their teacher, Ms. Shelly.
On the first day, all Garrit would say is "Mom, I know how to swim." The poor kid went kicking and screaming. After the 3rd day he was all good and he is now swimming like a fish.

Zane on the other hand was very excited to go to swim lessons. However, after the first day he was not wanting to go back. On the second day he did not want to take off his shirt or flip-flops, so he got put in the pool with it all on. He learned his lesson and enjoy the next 2 weeks of lessons. Zane has the ability to swim, however, he is working on his self-confidence.
