long time no see..
well after quite a while our computer is up and running again.
During which most of the summer has passed.
We have gone on vacation to my parents house for the fourth of July. The kids have made several trips to my mother in laws house. We spent a week at my father in laws house, some of that time was also spent at their lake house Where we spent most of the time swimming in the lake, going of boat rides, the kids went tubing and got to ride on jet skis (Caitlynn too and she LOVED it). Nathaniel spent some time there using a kayak. He LOVED it and really looked like a pro. Then the boys spent an extra week there and Brianna spent a week with my sister in law.
Then Nathaniel, Alex, and Brianna went with my mother in law and her sister to bush gardens and the beach. I was surprised to hear that all the kids went on every ride they were big enough for. And for Nathaniel that meant every single roller coaster :).
In the meantime we have filled our days with trips to the library, Every tues. and wed. our library has preschool story time. The girls LOVE it. The learn about a letter and a subject each week. This week it was Aa Animal, They read stories about the subject, Sing songs, and lear a word or 2 in sign language that goes along with one of the books they read. This week one of the books was " Ducks don't wear socks" so they learned how to say socks and shoes in sign language.
Needless to say our summer has been very very busy. But very fun! And I am happy that I can start updating here again on all the fun stuff we do!
