Hi, there! We're back. Back to town, back to school, back to wireless internet access at home. Here's a quick catch-up post from this summer.
First, we had an absolutely wonderful time back in Stillwater. We spent hours and hours out at the farm working on the little house. The kids pretty much had the run of the place while Craig and I were working, so they were as barefoot and dirty as any kid would want to be in the summer.
When we got tired of chasing the kids, we found a great way to hold them in one place. :)
Here's the Doodlebug pretending to be Little Boy Blue (under the haystack, fast asleep).
Franny-girl was a kitten for about half of the summer. Oh, and she finally decided she likes letting me braid her hair. :) I've been absolutely itching to braid it for almost a year, but she would never sit still. I'm loving it!
The last week we were there, our (most wonderful) nanny had to go back to school, so I stayed home in the mornings with the kids and we went exploring. So much fun.
When I told the Doodle that I was going to stay home with them in the mornings, he got so excited and said, "You mean like a babysitter?!!" ::facepalm::
What else? Atticus is in preschool four days a week in the afternoons, and is doing great. He had to get four shots at his doctor appointment and shed not a single tear. Lady Frances is finally out of diapers at night, and is doing so well. Her brother still comes and wakes up daddy when he has to use the bathroom at night. Ladybug gets up and goes by herself, and if she can't get her underwear back on, she just goes back to bed without it. We moved both kids out of their toddler beds this summer and into twin beds, so the kids think they are pretty big time now.
Stay tuned because I have lots more things to post and actually time to do it. And an internet connection (!)
