Home for the summer

We've started off summer w/ the boys at home! The last few years I've worked, and Ezra's been in summercamp style daycare during the summer, and he really enjoyed it; however, it's VERY costly!! Since we have several pools in our community, we've decided to stay home this summer and pack each week with field trips to the park, pool visits often, libraray visits, lunch out with daddy once a week, the local Zoo, Ray's Splash Planet, Discovery Place, and so much more!! Even though that sounds like alot of stuff, it does not even add up the the summer camp expense, and the biggest bonus is that the boys get to spend alot of quality time together!! This is the first time since Ezra's lived with me that we will have spent the whole summer together, and I'm looking forward to it. Ezra's just pleased that he's not in school, in general!!

Jesse's changing in remarkable ways, he's communicating more with signs and learning words. I wouldn't say that everyone would know what he's saying, but he's giving such effort to learn words!! This week he has learned to put his 'quiet stick' up to his mouth and say shhhh shhhh shhhh. For anyone who doesn't know, that's his finger, HA! His 8 teeth are coming in, four of them are the outer incisers, and the other 4 are molars. All but 3 have broken thru the skin right now, and he's still having miserable moments; but overall, has been such a trooper with so many teeth coming in at once. We have been giving lots of hugs, and cuddles to make him feel better!!

Splish Splash - Run Run Run!!!

The boys and I are spending alot of time at the n'hood pools - our n'hood has 4! Two adult pools and 2 toddler pools. We also have FUN home owners fees, just in case you're curious.... HA!

The boys love it, these pics are of the boys taking a pool break. Jesse really spends most of his time at this splash area - it's easier for me with him there because he's not restrained to me holding him in the big pool w/ Ezra or having to stay in his float. He just wants to run!!!! Ezra takes pool breaks and comes and plays with Jesse in the splash area.
