No lazy days of summer today!!!

We have already started our summer off with a bang! Today was the first day.... At 7:45 this morning we had two little visitors over to see if we could play. I unfortunately was not out of my bed yet. I still get up with the baby a few times in the night and try and go back to sleep after her last "night" feeding at 4:45 am. Her "morning" feed is around 7:45 to 8:00 so I was going to get up anyway. We then headed out by nine to Orem to a super fun gym called Xtreme Air Sports... It is trampoline and jumping gym. We got in free with our POAP!!! Then we went to get tickets for the Scera Shell. Also free with our passes.. We had packed a lunch so we went to the park to eat and play! With a quick trip to Krispy Kreme we made sure to get home for me to cut 7 inches off of a cuties hair... Then May and I hopped back in the car and went to donate my blood. They were happy to take it:) I always get the call because I have O+ blood and apparently it is the most common, so they need a bunch of it. I took two treats because I am nursing see. Baby would get hers through me so it was only right. Back home to a dinner in the crock pot that wasn't done all the way. Dang it!! I made such a yummy dinner, chicken cordon blue in the crock pot... But the chicken wasn't all the way cooked. So we had to throw it in the micro so we wouldn't get an upset tummy... Then another haircut... Clean and tidy the house... Babies to bed.... Breathe... Tomorrow we have a bunch planned and I am even thinking I am going to talk my kids into cleaning windows... How do you think that will go over??? Yeah probably that good. We only have a couple of weeks off so we are going to pack it in.. Ry has been training with daddy for a big bike ride this summer. She is doing about 24 miles during her ride. So far they have gone 8.5 miles on their longest training ride. I love that she wants to do this with her dad!!! I am so proud of her! Alex started tennis lessons. All the cutest boys play tennis. I know it's a little preppy, and he is more of a dirt kinda kid, but he really likes it. We got him a little racket and some tennis balls. He calls himself a tennis machine, I think he will be my kid that wants to be good at something so he will stick with it because he wants to master it. He also wants to give golf a shot. That seems expensive but we are happy to let him try these things. Both kids did great in school. Ry is reading so well, she on an R level. They like to see second graders on a level m when they finish school so she is doing great. She is really loving French and I am so amazed that she is picking it up like she is. She is continuing piano lessons and will be doing a performance sometime. Gator finished kindergarten and is reading. I am pushing him reading every day for twenty minutes. He finished on a level B so not all the way at a level C. But we will push to catch up for first grade. It just barely clicked in his brain, like one month ago, so it will take a little practice. He loves school, I think that is just as important.  I am proud of him too! There was a lot to learn and process this year and staying well was one thing he did well. Pictures to come!!!

WOW! That days sounds anything but lazy. Have a happy summer. Unfortunately, the tickets were to expensive to come to Utah, so we will not be coming this summer. Hopefully next summer when Addy learns to behave in the car and we can drive. Would have been fun to see you in the summer for a change. Have a great summer!

You DO know that you're not technically supposed to give blood when you're nursing?!?

Hummmm, I didn't know that. Well I wish they would suck these pesky baby pounds out instead. I would happily donated four or ten:)
