July is almost over

And school will be starting soon. I can't believe it. It just seems like summer started. Where has the time gone? I love summer time except when we are trying to sell our house. It is hard to keep it clean all day long. The kids are doing a great job with their chores and keeping the house clean. It helps that we aren't home a lot but I appreciate their hard work.
I register the kids this week for school out in Edgewood. Route 66 Elementary School starts August 13th for Caleb and Kailei. Payton starts kindergarten on Monday, August 17th. Edgewood Middle School starts on August 20th for Parker. Should be fun times! I think the kids are excited to start school.

We have fish

Ok, not real fish but my kids LOVE the water. Payton can now swim without her floaties and she is so excited. She likes having the comfort of her vest but she can total swim without it. Presley LOVES to swim without her floaties. She jumps off the diving board at my friend Dana's house. I let her come up to the top before she grabs my hands. She can hold her breath for a long time and when she needs to get a breath she gets her head above the water, sometimes she even floats on her back. She is so funny. She is still working on getting a breath when she gets her head out of the water, but she is like a little fish. We are enjoying the time we can spend at the pool. That seems to be the thing we do when we get a call that a relator is coming to the house. Many people are looking at the house, we are just waiting for the right family to want our home. I can't believe that school will be starting in a month. YIKES!!!! We are having a great summer and we hope you all are as well.

Girls are fun!

I always love to take pictures of my girls, especially when they all cooperate.

They had fun taking these pictures with their matching 4th of July shirts.

Happy 4th!

It is a little late but I am finally getting around to blogging. Our family spent our 4th in Gilbert, AZ with my mom and my brother Tyler and his family. My dad was on his motorcycle ride to Laguna Seca for the Moto GP races. Joe usually goes with him but he sold his bike and didn't go this year. We had a great time, even though it was rather HOT, we went swimming atleast 3 times a day. Thank goodness I have a family that loves the water. Presley especially was a little fish. She decided that she didn't want to swim with her floaties and it was rather funny. She can almost get her head out of the water when she swims without floaties. Payton can swim without her floaties but she feels more comfortable with them on. We had a great time! Parker and Caleb always love the 4th because we buy fun fireworks and they get to put on the firework show for all of us.
