Got my shoes tied tight

After a crazy busy summer we are at it again. School started this week. My kids both came home crying in June on the last day of school. Neither of them got the teacher they wanted and swore up and down that none of there friends were in their classes. Not a single one. So, last week I made them walk down to the school with me and look at the class lists posted on the front door. They both had a few boys they knew and could hang out with. They weren't their very best buddies, but kids they could handle. I think it put their minds at ease at least for the day.  

When Monday came and it was time to ride off to school they both seemed to have forgotten how upset they were just a few few months ago about which teacher they got. (I wasn't going to be the one to remind them.) They both came home after school and raved about their teachers and experiences. Hopefully it's the beginning of a very good year. 

As for me... I've got 3 at home and I'm starting in on a new adventure in babysitting. That's right, I'm opening up my home to babysitting some children this year. If anyone knows someone who lives around here and needs childcare let me know. I'll see if it will fit into the schedule. Oh yeah, and wish me luck.

Aren't the boys handsome?!

I'm wearing every pair I own

Life is funny today. I think we have exhausted all of our summertime activity ideas. We have resorted to extreme measures. Adam decided that it would be funny to put on a diaper and pretend to be a super baby. Uh, ok.

This turned into more fun ideas when Noah decided to put on every pair of underwear he owns. Then he asked me to punch him in the butt because it doesn't hurt. Thats always a good idea, as long as it doesn't hurt. Seth got in on the fun too, but I'm not sure how many pairs he has on, or who's underwear he is wearing. Is that a problem? What the...?

We counted and Seth has 11 pairs of underwear and 3 pairs of shorts.

17 pairs of underwear.

Taking them off.

There is obviously no order in our house, and school needs to start sooner than later! At least we are laughing.

Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy

Seth decided for his summer class he wanted to take swimming lessons. He loves to swim and has no fear of the water. Over the years we've had to pull him out of the water by his waistband or back if the neck a few times because he jumped into water that was too deep. Swimming lessons must be a good idea. So, like many moms in the area do I enrolled him in the swimming classes at South Davis Rec Center. He has loved it. The preschool classes teach them the basics of swimming strokes for freestyle, breast stroke, and back stroke. They are highly assisted because they are 3-5 years old, but learn the basics. They are also contributing to the comfort level these kids feel in the water. Seth doesn't need help with that. Anyway, the classes are every day for 2 weeks. After the first week his teacher says he is already ready to move in to the next level, and we still have another week! It's exciting to see your kids do well at something that they love. I hope he sticks with it:)

This is his rocket ship

All wet after class!

King of the cell-fees

I'm hoping that everyone has someone in their family who is a professional at the cellfy. You know, the picture that you take of yourself. My sister, being a mom, is great at it because she takes all the pictures. Otherwise she's not ever in any pictures. My professional selfy is Seth. He doesn't play on my phone very often, but when he does I always get it back with at least one picture and one video of him, taken by him.
