Summer is Here!

I can't believe it! Summer is here. Friday was my last day at work until August. I am so happy. I love being home with my children. It is when I fell the most "normal". Normal does not come easily for me, so this is a big deal.

Today James headed off to football camp at Jerry's high school for the week. He was so excited. He is being joined by three friends from the neighborhood, too. They are going to have a blast. All four boys love playing football. They all love being together, too. I think they are going to love every minute.

I am home with the two little ones this week. It is so neat whenever the group dynamics change. You just see a different side of them when you have them in different groupings. It is neat. Riley and Madeline currently have a love/hate relationship. They bounce back and forth from laughing to fighting. Generally, Madeline has taken something of Riley's or decided to hit or kick him to get a reaction from him only for him to eventually retailate by holding her down to stop her. This then brings about screams of discontent. Now, two minutes later the two will be laughing and playing and chasing and smiling. They give each other hugs and kisses. Siblings to the core, these two are. (That sentence was rather Yoda-ess, don't ya think?)

We bought a Wii this weekend. It was a combo. Jerry's birthday and James' leaving elementary school gift. Oh my GOSH!! It is so much fun. The boys played for over three hours straight yesterday. They were actually sweating! Jerry and James played golf last night and were laughing out loud. It was so fun to watch them. I like that the kids are active. No one is sitting around being lazy. Super fun!

I have a ton of pictures taken over the last week or so. I am going to work on posting some during nap times this week. The kids are growing and changing so fast!

I am loving every minute.
