Today's family update post is lonnnnggggg. I didn't get a chance to do one last week, so this one includes two weeks of photos. I apologize to those of you on dial-up. ;-) Here we go...
First and foremost - our house is FINALLY officially for sale!
Now that we are DONE getting ready, there is more time for fun things! Plus, I am trying to keep the kids out of the house as much as possible, to reduce the amount of cleaning required for each showing. :-)
A favorite place to spend our time is the community pool. It's nice that we can go to the pool in April - but it's still a bit chilly when we get out!
This isn't Courtney heading to the pool - this is Courtney heading home from Target! We decided we needed some goggles, arm floaties and kickboards, and Courtney was so excited she had to put them on in the car!
We've spent time at the library, where we had a bit of a milestone - Carter is now checking out chapter books, and we're reading one or two chapters each night. My baby is growing up!
(And yes, he's totally stylin' in his orange socks and soccer sandals!) :-)
Carter and I like to watch Dancing with the Stars together. Can't you tell he loves it from his enthusiastic face?
One issue with letting your five year old watch DWTS with you - "Mommy what does sexy mean?"
Courtney is such a big helper at the grocery store! She wanted to push the big cart, even though she could barely reach it.
Carter and I got to have a morning together, just the two of us! We went to the garden center and bought a couple veggies to plant...
Looked at some books at Barnes & Noble...
And had lunch at Kerbey Lane, where Carter ate nearly ALL of these pancakes!! Wow.
Visiting Petsmart can be dangerous... we came close to adopting this sweet kitty! Wonder what Daddy would have thought of that...
We had a fun time last week visiting a new-to-us bouncy place!
One relatively mess-free thing to do at home is coloring - here they were making cards! Sigh. My babies, making mama proud!
One afternoon I found Courtney reading books in her room. Sitting in the bin that normally holds her dress-up clothes. Silly girl!
And finally - more warming up after a dip in the pool. :-)
Until next time...
