Today we went to playgroup and when we got home we had a package. Inside was all of GG's books for this next school year. It is making me realize that the summer really is getting closer to being over. We looked through the books that she will be doing next year in school and I remember doing the math and reading in these books in 2nd or 3rd grade. My feelings about the books are mixed, I'm excited but sad because my baby girl, who is my oldest but still and will forever be my baby, is going to school full days. Moving along, Red kept dry at playgroup today and only had one accident so far today and that was at nap time. It was a hot day today and on a whim we decided to go to the pool. That is the beauty of having the pool passes we didn't have to worry about going only for an hour and 15 minutes because we didn't have to pay to get in ;) GlamorGirl went off the diving board for the first time today and she did AWESOME. The first few times J was on the side of the pool to help if she needed it but she didn't so from there on out she was on her own. She even went off the big slide in the 12ft 6in deep water. I have Bible study tonight and J is doing something fun with the kids he refuses to tell me about so I'll have to wait until I get home to find out what they did.

Just to clarify if you have read my blog before now, you have noticed I have changed the kids names. I have been doing a lot of thinking about my kids safety and the internet. I don't really want to explain my reasons or do I feel I need to elaborate on them they are my kids and I feel I need to protect them in this way. So my oldest will be referred to as GlamorGirl or GG for short. My second oldest will be called Monkey and my youngest will be called Red. When the baby is born I am thinking of calling her something like Baby Girl but I haven't completely decided on that one yet kind of want to meet her first. I know people have not liked this change and I am sorry, I hope my making the connections between the kids age and name is helpful.
