Well, here it is, Friday again, and another week has just flown past! After having cooler than normal temperatures almost all summer, the last few days have been hot and muggy. We're supposed to get thundershowers later today, and more rain through the weekend. Hopefully it will cool things off again.
My friend Leslie invited us over on Wednesday and we spent a lot of time in the pool. Julia and Sam were scared to go in the water at first, but after a while they got used to the idea, and really liked it. In fact, I had a hard time getting Sam out of the water when it was time to go home! Thanks again, Les--we had so much fun!!
Even though it is still summer, I've started thinking ahead to fall a little bit. I'm looking forward to buying new fall clothes for Julia. Today I went to our local children's consignment store and found these two things. I especially love the skirt! It's corduroy, though you can't tell from the picture. Best of all, I discovered that I had some store credit, so both items were free. :)
Here are a couple random pics of the kids from this week. Sam took some of the corner protectors that were in the sink box and decided they would make good hats. I think he looks like a little Chinese boy. :) Oh, and if he looks nearly bald, it's because he is. Jim buzzed his hair early this week, partly for coolness and partly so we could soak it with olive oil and scrub off all the cradle-cap-like stuff that's been messing up his scalp for the past couple years. It's funny; he hardly had any cradle cap as a baby, but as he got older and got more hair, he had a lot of it. I've read a lot of things that said olive oil will usually get rid of it, and now he has a clean scalp, and hopefully it will stay clean! :)
I thought this was a cute pic of Julia, although she is actually fussing. This is probably the first time she's ever had longer hair than her big brother. :)
We harvested the first of our sugar snap peas from the garden this week! Sam loves to munch them and refers to them as "sugar-snaps." I think he would gladly eat anything that had the word "sugar" in it. :) Hmmmm, maybe that is an idea to get him to happily eat other things! Sugar-zucchini, sugar-potatoes, sugar-lettuce . . .
Well, I need to go and make some hotdog buns now. Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
