Blahg

That's about how I'm feeling about blogging lately-blah, blah, blah. So, here's a little update on our July. Since the 4th, we've had Oliver in swimming lessons just about every day. He's feeling so much more comfortable in the water, but not yet a full-fledged swimmer. Next summer, hopefully. Anyway, we have been going to the pool every day so he doesn't forget all that he's learned. We discovered the Veteran's Pool in Provo that is so great- slides and a huge splash area for the kids with an immersion entrance so I can watch him without having to get all the way in (i.e., lay out). Amelia is also loving the water, if we can manage to keep the sunblock out of her eyes. If we're not at the pool, we're at the library or hanging out with Julie. We went to a BBQ for the 24th of July (Pioneer Day in Utah) with some people from Christian's work and then headed to Farmington for the weekend. As soon as we get to Grandma's house now, it's as if we don't exist- he follows Grandma around everywhere and talks her ear off. He loves his Grandma! As for me, I've been running again after about 3 weeks of physical therapy on my knee. It feels good to be back at it, though I've lost a lot of endurance. Christian's still working hard and getting things done. Anyway, like I said, "blah, blah, blah."

Julie gave Amelia a haircut and it's so cute. We're twinners.

July 24th weekend. Someone stayed up too late watching the fireworks.

See what I mean about the sunblock? Ugh- it's so sad!

I love your updates, Rebecca, and though I'm o.k. with occasional SHORT breaks, don't even think of stopping!

That picture with Amelia asleep on Chris' lap, with her sippy on her face is priceless.

And the 24th-- how we love having you all here!

I like your updates. You're the only one that's been doing them regularly! You're lucky to go to the pool everyday! Enjoy the less-busy years. :)

I'm with you on the BLAHg thing (obviously, since mine hasn't been updated in 3 1/2 months).

Amelia's eye is SO sad...sunscreens used to bug my kids too...you have to get the Banana Boat tear free kind (in the yellow bottle with pink lid)

Poor girl with the sun block. My kids always BEG me not to put any on their face. psh....right. :) I don't think it's blah...I love reading everyday updates. What's going on with your knee? Did I know it was injured??? Can't be sure if I did or not. I am really losing my mind these days.

I can't believe how long little Amelia's hair has gotten...what a doll!
