June 28, 2009

Sorry I have been AWOL. Everything is fine here. We have been having fun, playing outside in the water a lot. The other day, I spent a couple of hours outside in the scorching morning heat cleaning up some flower beds while the boys played in the hose. Every once in a while I had to asked them to spray me because, otherwise, I would not have been able to stay out as long. It has been very very hot here...around the 100 to 103 ish mark and that does not include the heat index.

We finally got a break this morning and we had a cool front come through so it only got into the low 90's today but there was much less humidity so it really felt much cooler.

Anyway, not much new going on around here. Just staying busy with summer and trying to catch up on a few things and I was also reading a book so that took me a way for a couple of days. My sister gave the boys some books for when they are a bit older so I was putting them away yesterday morning and started reading The Swiss Family Robinson to see if it was too old for them (it was). Anyway, I got interested in it because I had never read it before. I was already planning to make my weekly jaunt to the library for the boys anyway so I also found the adult version of The Swiss Family Robinson while I was there. I finished it today. What a wonderful book that was! It was written in such a sweet way that it just made me want to be part of that wonderful family, stranded on that beautiful island with them:). I really enjoyed it and was not quite ready to be finished with it. This is one of the things I love about having children. I get to read all of the books that I missed when I was growing up.

Nick has caught a summer cold and I am wondering if anyone else is going to catch it. He still keeps going like the energizer bunny, although I can tell he is not quite as agreeable at times.

Anyway, that's it for tonight. Hope you had a good weekend.
