Back To Reality





The last few days have not been as perfect and peaceful as last week. Last week, Jeff was taking the kids a million places to give me some quiet time and Audrey slept 22 hours a day. This week, Jeff is back at work, my kids are home as loud as ever, and Audrey refuses to sleep for more than 2 hours at a time at night.

I have been trying to keep the kids busy, but it's so stinking hot they refuse to stay outside for more than 15 minutes at a time. I am really looking forward to school starting, they are in desperate need of extracurricular activities. Anna and Elizabeth will both do soccer, and I am going to put them all in swim lessons. Hopefully that will calm things down a bit during the day.

I have some more pictures for you...Kids trying to keep cool, Audrey's first bath and, Audrey in the swing. She is not much of a swing fan, she likes human touch 90 percent of the day.

As soon as school starts, things will get better. (At least that is what I keep telling myself!) Your kids are so beautiful! I wish you were here so our kids could play together! It has been very hot here too. Record breaking temps for a couple of weeks! 98 and 99! Really hot. But at least my kids still play outside, thank goodness. We should have gotten a little pool this year. I think the kids would have liked it. Oh well, maybe next year.

My kids LOVED the swing. They probably would of stayed in there their whole first year of life, if I would of let them. It was the only place Claire would sleep the first 6 months.

Hopefully, Audrey's sleeping pattern will get better. Sometimes it can take a while.
