Hmmm. . . What Have We Been Up To?

I feel like lately we’ve been up to nothing, but yet a lot at the same time. . . if that makes any sense.  Brad was knocked down by a nasty cold, which he so kindly passed on to me, but I didn’t get it as bad as he did 🙂 So I think it has worked it’s way through all of us now, so hopefully we will be done with that junk.  It seems that all of our activities are starting to wind down with the school year.  Jaxson had his very last Brighter Beginnings today after going for three years, which was bittersweet for me, not for him of course.  Holden and I will continue to go in the fall.  He is getting ready for his Preschool graduation in two weeks and is very excited for it.  He finishes up with school on the 15th.  Holden is talking more and more everyday.  His new word today was “hot guys” or also known as Hawkeyes 🙂  He is now counting to 10, so of course we have to count EVERYTHING now.  He also knows 22 of the letters, we still need to work on C, J, Q and W.  Holden is also potty trained when he is awake!!!!  We’ve been working with him for over a month now and he does excellent.  He tells us when he needs to go and can hold it for hours!  I no longer worry about taking him out in public because he seems to do better when we are out and about.  We still put a diaper on him at nap and bedtime because I don’t feel that he’s quite ready to go without yet.  So we are so happy and proud of him 🙂  Brad and I have been quite busy with planning our big construction project coming up that I am just a tad bit excited about.  We are doing a kitchen remodel and putting an addition where our deck is now (off of our dining room), which will be the new dining room.  We have been working with a designer from Showplace Kitchens, who has come up with a design that we LOVE LOVE LOVE, but we will see how much we love it tomorrow when he calls me with the price 🙂  We also have our contractor picked out and we should hear by the end of this week when they think they will be able to get started.  So I have a feeling that we are not going to be lacking any summer activity between the remodel, swimming lessons, VBS, and Safety Town for Jaxson.

Jaxson has been climbing trees and has been known to fall out of them too.

Enjoying a popsicle on the swing in the afternoon.

Their new favorite spot to play in the mornings when I am getting ready for the day.

This is probably the safer way to ride the skateboard.
