Summer Lovin'/ Lovin' Summer

Except for the past two cools days, summer has finally come to Rome, GA! We have spent several days in our backyard pool (Aly picked out the pink one--you should have seen me trying to get it home from Wal-Mart in the Civic!). Caroline insists on trying to pull herself up on the side to reach over and touch the ground. I am patrolling the whole time, but wouldn't you know it that as I am standing RIGHT THERE, she accomplishes her feat and tumbles over-head first!- onto the ground! You'd think that would be enough to learn, but not-so-much!

Chad spoke at a camp this past weekend over in Tennessee, so we packed up and went with him. The camp ground had a water park with a wave pool, so the girls also got to experience that; a little nerve-racking for me, but they liked it! The camp was for 4th-6th graders, and it made my heart hurt a little as we watched these little 8-year-olds run around, and realized that that will be our girls in just a few quick blinks. My dad used to always joke and say that he wanted to put books on our heads to keep us from growing-- I understand that feeling more and more everyday!

This video is ANOTHER of Aly. Every morning, we dance to Third Day's song, "I Wanna Sing a Song". Aly is so 'multi-talented' that she can dance, play her guitar-thing, and sing ("Holy"). And yes, she is half-nude. We are knee-deep in potty training, and sometimes, naked is just easier!!
