This week, my kiddos have swim lessons at 4:00 every afternoon and we aren’t getting home until after 5:00. So, I’m making something in the slow cooker for dinner each night. Tonight, we’re having …
And here is Smith during his first year of swim lessons in 2012 (he was 2.5).
I can’t believe how big my babies have gotten. It just goes by so fast.
3. What I’m loving…
I don’t know where I was or why I wasn’t watching Gilmore Girls when it first came out, but I’m binge watching the show now and am completely obsessed. I love the dialog, the chemistry, the writing, the backdrop…I love it all!
4. What we’ve been up to…
…we went swimming for the first time this season!
It has been raining for a solid month here in North Texas. It’s been an crazy amount of rain (Smith has only been able to play 2 baseball games…the other 5 have been rained out!). So, on Saturday, we had a bright, sunny, cloudless and warmish day (it was around 75) and Erika and I decided to take the six kiddos to a heated pool for some swimming! We had so much fun! During the summer, we’re in the pool every day, so it was fun to kick off our swimming early this year. This was sweet Ashby’s very first time in a pool and she had a BLAST! This girl didn’t hesitate one bit…she got in and played like she’s been doing it forever. Sweet girl :).
6. What I’m working on…
My vegetable garden.
I’ve decided to plant a vegetable garden this year…and that’s totally a work in progress. Right now, I’m trying to find the best place in my yard for the garden and then we’ll go from there.
I start to get nervous this time of year because I know there are only a few episodes left until my favorite shows (like Scandal!) have before their summer break. I haaaaaaaate waiting until the fall to see how the cliffhangers end. After years of watching Scandal…I know it will end with a very dramatic cliffhanger. Sigh.
I’ve been reading Rachel Anne Ridge’s new book Flash. I didn’t know what to expect but it’s this wonderful memoir about a family (particularly the mom) and how she gets through a rough patch in life with a donkey by her side. If you like Melanie Shankle or Sophie Hudson books, you will love Flash! It’s warm and charming.
Haha! I’m so cool…I’ve been listening to Disney Junior’s DJ Shuffle :).
Somebody I know is sleeping in her big girl bed!!
Ashby transitioned on her own (she was so proud of herself!) two weeks ago and hasn’t fussed about it once. My sweet girl is doing so good!
I don’t have a picture of the grandmothers’ necklaces but here are two of mine…Ashby and #blessed :).
I can’t wait to read through your link ups! Thanks for playing What’s Up Wednesday with us!
