Remember when I posted about my "OMG preschool is almost over with" anxiety? Well so far, so good. It's been really nice (and challenging) having Nathan home during the day, all day, everyday. Austin and Nathan are enjoying a lot more time together and I am enjoying seeing Nathan a lot more. We have had some trying times but mostly it's been a lot of fun. A lot of outdoor time, visits to the park, visiting and feeding animals, and play dates. It's been great having Averi here once or twice a week for nearly day long play dates. It's nice to have some pink in the house during the day lol.
I realize it's only June but I think not only will I survive this summer but I think I will really enjoy it. It is nice not having to be home by noon, that's normally when Nathan would be dropped off from preschool. It's nice to leave in the mornings whenever we want. It's just SO NICE. It isn't ALL rainbows and sunshine being with kids all day and night (no job is 100% rainbows and sunshine) but yeah it's SO NICE so far. I love being a mom.
Here are a few pics from this week. I forgot my darn camera (GASP!!!!!!) two different times this week when we were at the park but I did get a few cute backyard shots of the kids.

(I LOVE LOVE LOVE this shot of Averi, you can tell how much fun they were having! Nathan meanwhile was enjoying his homemade choc chip cookie lol. See Austin in the Jeep behind Averi? They all love that thing!)
Soccer starts a week from today! We are pretty excited about it because this is Nathan's first sports team. We are also pretty excited (and nervous) about Kevin being the coach. Not sure if that will be a good thing or a bad thing when it comes to Nathan. You never know about him lol. Ironically, Nathan got put on the Kelly Green team. Pretty funny if you ask me. I mean hello, my name is Kelly and green has always been my fave color. That means his soccer t shirt will be green, that's cool with me *GRIN*. Averi (see pics above) is on Nathan's team as well. Again not sure if this will be a good thing or a bad thing with Nathan. You never know with him. lol. We are hoping it's a good thing and that it might help with any shyness he may or may not have. We had requested they be on a team together because they adore one another.
Swimming lessons start the week of June 20th. We are pretty excited about the lessons too! We need to get Nathan more comfortable with the water. Forget about learning how to swim, we will be thrilled if he will go under water finally! LOL.
Things are going really good here. We are still enjoying and are still so thankful for Kevin's new job and our third baby. We still can't believe either miracle. We still can't believe we found out both in the same week. Next week will definitely be a big week around here, our 8th wedding anniversary, the big ultrasound, and Nathan's first game as a player, and Kevin's first game as a coach.
Hope all of you are enjoying the summer as well! Before we know it, it will be over!
PS As I was typing this entry, I without a doubt, FELT THE BABY MOVE!
