Ok.... so I am really behind in posting!!! June has flown by and has reallySUPER busy! I absolutely love summer and we are having a blast...well the kids and me. Robbie started a new job about a month ago and things are great but he is super busy and working long hours. We enjoy him when he gets home and the weekends but we thank him for working so hard for our family! So lets catch up!! In June we have, gone to Disneyland twice, been to the pool at least 20 times, park, play dates, gymboree, 3 birthday parties, Grammy and Grampy's house...I'm sure more I just can't think! So that is why I'm sooo behind!

Kid's update....Jack is thriving at school. We had his parent conference and Ms. Dani said he has met all his standards...he excels at everything and is very independent. He is not a follower, and if he doesn't want to do something the other kids are doing he will find something that he wants to do! He knows all his shapes, colors, can count to twenty, knows the alphabet and loves books! He will continue with school during the summer and move to the next classroom in September. I'm so happy we decided to put him in school. He was once sooooo shy and now he has really come out of his shell. He loves playing with his friends and all sports. We are always outside and he is super competitive. SWIMMING...he is a total fish, we did swim lessons in may and the first day he was in tears and now we can't get him out! He is amazing...he can swim so far while under the water. We are soooo proud of him. Last but not least.....totally POTTY TRAINED!!! YIPPEE!!! I thought he was going to be going to kindergarten in pull-ups, but one day he decided he wanted to go and that was it!!! This week he has mastered pooping in the potty!! The diapers are gone, he even sleeps all night in his undies!!! This is a huge accomplishment and Rob and I are so proud of our big boy! Jack is amazing. He makes us laugh everyday, he has such a kind heart and a true mama's boy!!!

Zoe...almost two!!! I have to say having a daughter is so amazing. I can see that we will be best friends just like my mom and I. We will be able to share so many wonderful things together. Zoe is also thriving and learning so much everyday! When we take Jack to school she loves to play and interact with the other kids, she will be starting school in the fall and i know she will love it! She also loves the pool. She has NO fear and that's scary but her swimming continues to improve and she really loves playing in the kiddie pool. Zoe has a zest for life...she always wants to go and have a good time, shes up for anything and will try whatever at least once! She hangs out with mostly Jack's friends so she thinks she can do a lot more than she can...but she can definitely hold her own. She cracks me up...she is very naughty and adorable...the problem is she knows it and thinks she can get away with anything! She is totally girlie, wants to wear a dress everyday, carries a purse almost always, has numerous necklaces and bracelets on when were home and love walking around in my shoes!!! She absolutely adores her brother and cheers him on when he goes potty!! She is my sweet pea and I love her so much! I say she is my beast, and she is but she is wonderful and I adore her!!!

Things we have been enjoying lately....
