When you have time check out this blog from a KCU professor's wife. I think it was Janette who wrote about it one time and I check it almost daily now. I cry pretty much every time. She's a mother, a teacher, a writer, and her life has had many uphill battles. She writes beautifully about it all. Sunday's post was very inspiring.
I am up early so Adam can go to JumpStart at Camargo. It's a program to help incoming Kindergarten students get familiar with the school and teachers. He is pumped. In fact, he wanted me to write down that I needed to get him up early today. Like I'd forget him! I will work in my room while he is there from 8-12. We will go some days this week and some next week.
We have some houses we want to look at hopefully this week. I am anxious and nervous and scared all at the same time. I know God has the right house for us. Patience, right? It's funny to think that I didn't even want to set up Luke's crib (and just use the Pack n Play) since I thought we'd only be in this house for a few weeks before we found one. Ha! It's a year and a half later.
Luke is pacifier free. Luke is using the potty on a pretty regular basis. Luke is talking so very much and so very well. Luke is having a nice July and will turn two this Sunday. We are having a Mickey Mouse party and hope to have a great time!
Bucky is busy with Amazing Race, softball games, and (still more) youth group trips. It sure makes the time go fast.
Well, time to get up Adam.

I can't believe July is flying by. All the fifth grade teachers met today to talk about the upcoming year. I love a fresh group of kids but can't believe summer is almost over. I'm going to try and enjoy each moment!
It's been an interesting couple of weeks since vacation. Bucky made cameo apperances here on Holt Avenue in between Summer in the Son, Spirit Song, not to mention work and the Amazing Race. The boys and I are doing the summer reading program at the library, had VBS, go to the pool often, and also have been to Cynthiana.
Luke is taking more and more and he's quite the conversationalist! I love to hear him talk. He can pretty much tell you anything. He's also been using the potty some. One day he went three times. Not bad for not even being 2! We have taken the pacifier away. He used it at naps and bedtime and some other times but today is day seven without it. Yay! He clings to his blanket and often has two or three toys with him in bed but all is well. I have noticed that he now wants me more often and I hear, "Mommy!" A LOT! Hopefully this will get better.
Adam is having a nice summer. He loves the Amazing Race and he's Bucky's big helper. He really likes to go to the pool. He is water dog. Of course, Luke is making every splash with him! We've not seen Cars 2 but we've not made it yet. Better do it soon!
That's about it. Luke has gone down for nap, Adam is playing his Leapters and I see some rest in my future. I'll be up and out early for a devotion group. Looking forward to it.
