Busy Busy!!!

We have been having a great summer so far.  I can't believe how fast it has went.  It is so hard to believe that it is almost August.  I'm not ready for summer to end!  The kids and I have been keeping pretty busy, busier than I think we've ever been in a summer.  Both Gracie and Jesse went to basketball camps.  All 3 kids had 4 weeks of swimming lessons, Gracie is in band camp right now and then will be heading off to church camp before too long.  Also, we've been going to the swimming pool almost every day, to cool off and burn off some energy.  It just feels like we're constantly on the go, but we're having fun and I'm just loving the hot weather. 

I just ordered Pete Wilson's new book called 'Empty Promises'.  I have been reading so many novels lately.  I usually sit in bed and read for a couple hours every night.  But I thought it would be good for me to read something other than a novel every once in a while.  One of my favorite books that I read not that long ago, was 'What Women Fear' by Angie Smith.  I thought it was such an easy read that it was just as fun to read as a novel, but at the same time, it was so insightful!  I also think it would be fun to get a couple of different biographies to read.  I always thought it would be fun to read one on Marilyn Monroe, and one on Jackie Kennedy. 

We have went up to my in-laws lake house the last 2 weekends and just relaxed.  It's about a 2 hour drive from here.  It is always so pretty up there.  This last weekend when we went, the kids swam pretty much the whole time.  We took the boat out Sunday morning and by lunch time we were all hopping in the water. 

Here are a couple pictures of the kids in the water... 

I love that they are holding hands.  No matter how much my kids can fight, I know that they do love each other! 

Gracie was just relaxing away.
