Here are the Bugs and the Beans enjoying the pool Grandma sent home with us.  After Hubbs got home from work today we decided to have a family night at home and we got the walls of it blown up and filled. The girls had the most fun they have had all day. They learned to blow bubbles into the water through straws to start them learning breath control for submerging their faces later.  We also had a blast splashing each other. Great cool ending to one extremely hot and sticky day. 

Thanks a ton Grandma!

Wow, the heat index for the day finally lowered. Granted, we are still at 100 and it is going on seven in the evening, but it is better than earlier was.  The kids are playing in the sandbox for a bit and are having fun.

We installed the WordPress app on my phone and this thing is great!  I love it!  It is so easy to type and post in this!  Kind of wondering why I didn’t switch over sooner, but don’t tell Hubbs!  He had been trying to get me to move for months now!

We had a blast visiting Grandma this weekend. We got most of her chore list knocked down so when we are out there on our “vacation” in a week and a half, we can just relax and rest. It has been an absolutely insane, crazy, busy summer, and the kids aren’t that old yet!  If it keeps getting busier, I don’t know what I’m going to do!

I shouldn’t be playing around with the WordPress app.  I’ve got a million things to do.  Like finish the laundry it was too hot to dry earlier (I know, I need to get a clothesline), put up the left overs from dinner now that they are cool enough to handle, I have two books that I need to read and review, along with writing my practice review for the Crew yet. Along with finishing unpacking, planning what to take for our next trip and I need to get planning for our school year through Christmas break yet. I know, sounds like a lot, but it really isn’t. Besides, as a friend of mine likes to ask, “How do you eat an elephant?  One bite at a time.”

So, since I know a lot of others are extremely busy and are feeling overwhelmed, let’s all just take a big breath, let it out slowly and dig into our elephants.
