An Update Full of Updates

Hello blog world!


How are you?
I'm fine, thanks.

As you know from probably staring at the post below, I went to the beach! And my little vacation turned into a blog-cation, as well. I'm nice and rested and have a little menu of what's to come/ what's been going on.
After a nice L-O-N-G season {because of 42 rained out games}, Ollie finished his second season of soccer. His little pot belly {showcased nicely in that polyester-mix jersey} did not inhibit him from running and chasing the ball a lot. No goals, yet... at least not for our team. Actually, the only goal he scored was for some other team- not even one he was playing. He just ran onto a field and kicked a ball in a goal.

I think that counts. Don't you?
Here's an updated picture of the girls from this past weekend. We had a great time that deserves a whole post to be written this week.
Remember our kitchen? Well, it turns out that this is NOT a load- bearing wall- thank goodness! And right now we are looking at a lot of space! YAY! I love it already!
And our breakfast room is "done" and I'll have to give that a whole post, as well, but here is a sneak peek:
Henry is just as happy as can be and is TALKING all the time. He repeats everything you say {can be dangerous, right?}. But he ends anything that ends with an "r" or an "s" with an "ee" sound. Like Thomas is "Tommy" and Arthur is "Artie" {these are both trains}. And he even calls his brother "brothie". I'm off to Tar-jay with little man and "brothie" for a few things for dinner. Thanks for your patience with me and I look forward to giving you the whole low down this week!

Ok so now I know who 'Artie' is! He was telling Lacey all about 'Artie' the other day. We knew it had to be a train but couldn't figure it out. :)
