Summer is Here

We are now in the full swing of summer! The weather is warming up and it is staying light almost 24/7. The children are so confused. Alex doesn't want to go to sleep at night and Isabella wakes up at 4:30 and thinks it is time to wake up for the day.
I have Isabella in a new outfit every time you turn around, because she is outgrowing all of her summer clothes. We estimated her clothing size to be the same as Alex's was at her age. Well, obviously, she is a lot bigger than Alex so she will never be able to wear her clothes throughout the whole summer! On the other hand, though, Alex is able to wear a lot of the summer clothes that were too big for him last year.
Alex is really enjoying the nice weather outside. He plays in the sand and dirt outside constantly. He will be devastated when the yard is completed and his sand and dirt are gone. He and Erik have been out in the boat twice this summer. (Isabella and I haven't been yet, we still have to buy her a life jacket.) He loves the boat! He also loves to ride his tricycle, climb on everything, and entertain Isabella. She loves watching her big brother!
Isabella is growing like a weed. She now has 6 teeth and loves to eat food that she can chew. She also can get to where she wants to go in her walker. Therefore, she gets into a lot of things that she shouldn't. She claps for everything and loves taking baths. Her face lights up and she starts smiling when she hears and sees the water in the bathtub. She should love the pool and sea this summer!
We hope everyone has a great summer and we are really looking forward to our guests this summer (my parents, Luke, Jennifer in June and the Beans in August!)

This is such a great idea! I wish my sister would do something like this! Just signed up for National Board Certification, so I'm extremely busy getting ready for that. Doing much better these days, when I get a chance I'll email you details. Oh, Jim Peterson's girl was born Monday @ 12:15 am, no clue about the name.
Lots of love and Kisses to you and those beautiful lovebugs! abby

Your babies are so cute. Thanks for sharing the pictures of them.
I know your mom and dad can hardly wait to see them again.
