Hi!

I'm putting off some housework, so I thought I might as well blog!

We are supposed to get a little break from the heat today. It's only supposed to be low to mid 80's, a really nice break from the 90+ degrees the last 2 days! We spent all day yesterday at the pool! Last year, Jack would last maybe 1-2 hours. Yesterday, we were there for 4 hours and they didn't want to leave then! It'll be nice next year when he will be a little more independent and I won't have to be in the water with him constantly, I just may be able to sit on the blanket and watch after him! Woohoo!! Macy is finally getting more comfortable with the water. She is now just in arm floaties, she graduated from the inner tube! All of her friends are pretty good swimmers and I think her increased confidence has a lot to do with that! I'm hoping that by the end of the summer she will be even better! It's at this time that I am really kicking myself for not continuing swimming lessons with her when she was a baby. I started her at 9 months, but didn't keep up with it. Jack on the other hand has no fear! He was going under himself and everything yesterday! If these kids didn't look alike, you'd never think they were related!

Taking the day off from the pool today. It thunderstormed last night and the grass is all wet. I have this thing about going to the pool when the grass is wet. For some reason it grosses me out! So, I think we'll hit the mall and maybe browse some new bathing suits.

Here are my latest layouts. I did the Home one at GNO on Friday. The other one was a quickie from last night. That's my first 8.5x11 layout since probably late 2000! I just had an urge to do it! Now I want to do a landscape one!!

Have a great day!!

GREAT layouts. Esp. love the home one.

You didn't answer my tomato question?=)

Cole took lessons briefly years ago and he has learned to swim all on his own now. Still makes me nervous when he is in the deep end though!!!

I am loving the 8X11 LO. I have been scrapping for 14 years and never have done that size. I may have to try it this weekend.

I hate wet grass too. I have to go out and mow it now and I'm putting it off. Love the layouts and I've been thinking of going to 8 1/2x11. I've been 12x12 or a little 8x8 the whole time and I'm looking for a switch. (and it's easier to scan...lol)

My Son and Daughter are complete opposites too! Isn't it funny how you can love them both so much for totally different reasons? Have a great day! Love the LO's you posted!
