Summer time rolls on

I don't have any excuses for my lack of blogging... other than laziness and heat stroke. No, not really heat stroke but it has been over 100F for like 27 days consecutively as of today. We are struggling to stay cool. Went out this morning and only could manage the humidity and morning heat for about 30 minutes.

Bear did ballet camp every afternoon last week and had a blast. She listened to a story, did a craft and danced for 2.5 hours daily. They had a recital on the last day and Computer Man and Gran got to go. The pics and video clip were so cute. Bear has also learned to swim this summer and puts her face in the water and swims like a decent ballerina. lol She is so girlie that it is painful to this old tomboy. We have been swimming about once a week at "Swimming Nanny's" house on Saturday evenings. It has been so much fun to have the dads there to chase and throw the girls.

Skunk is talking like crazy and stringing words together. Daily I am amazed at her vocabulary and I couldn't even venture a guess as to how many words she can use now. She still is napping in the afternoons to make it through to bedtime. Sometimes I wish we could drop the nap but it sure is nice to have that 1.5-2 hours in the afternoon to be quiet.

I think it is amazing how well the girls play together, considering they are 7 years apart. Lots of squealing and arguing but they play together for a good portion of the day as well. I hope they stay close and enjoy having a sister (for the most part) for a long time to come.

I will try and keep better notes about the daily happenings here...
