It's Been a While

Has it really been 5 whole months since I have written? How in the world does time pass so quickly! As usual, I have no idea where to start, I just know that I should start. Summer passed in a HOT blur. We did a lot of swimming to keep cool and Kennedy learned how to swim unassisted in the deep end! That was a great moment for all of us. Liam THINKS he can swim, but ended up having to be saved twice this summer. What a little dare devil! I got to go to California to celebrate my birthday with my two closest friends, Emily and Tressie. We had the best time in Santa Barbara, San Diego and at Disneyland. I was so glad that we were able to spend time together without kids. :) I got to see my family for a day as well. That was a treat since I only get to see them maybe once a year. That is the sad part about living so far away now.

In the big news section of the blog, Kennedy started Kindergarten!! I have no idea how she grew up so fast! She seems to love school, but complains that it is too long. I don't blame her since kindergarten is 7 hours long here! She comes home everyday with a smile though. Kennedy also turned 5 on August 31st and had a huge party with a bounce house and a water slide. A LOT of people showed up, but she had a ton of fun. We all did actually! After the party was over, all of the adults put on their suits and had their fun on the water slide. It was pretty funny...especially when I was trying t show off and ate it pretty hard. My side is still sore from that day!

 Liam is almost 3. Like I said, he is a dare devil and loves to jump off of things and into things and make giant messes! He is a challenge, but really fun to be around. He is always complimenting everyone. Sometimes, he compliments on the right things like "I like your dress." Other times, he compliments on very strange things like "I like your mole." Yes, mole as in a MOLE on your skin. He is such a funny and sweet kid! Well, I guess that is all for now. I don't want to make it so long that you will never come back and read again! And now, for a few random images from this summer! (more available at instagram!)
