The other day (actually, I think it may have been a few months ago by now), Justin made a comment about how he was glad that I'd written all the Letters to Lizzy on this blog because he couldn't remember all the little details without them. I'm glad that I wrote them too, and have been meaning to catch up on Becca's letters for the same reason. But the point is, that in not having the time to blog lately, there are little things that I'm afraid might be slipping through the cracks of my mind, forgotten.
So here's what I want to remember right now:
-We've been taking Lizzy to swimming lessons for about seven months now, and she's starting to swim on her own for short distances without any sort of floaties!
-We got to week six or seven of Couch to 5k, and then we've had 100+ degree temperatures since then, and it just isn't happening anymore, which makes me sad. Especially since that was the one form of exercise that was actually working for us, as it didn't depend on both girls being asleep. I'm not really sure what to do now.
-All last week, Lizzy called Vacation Bible School the "DMV."
-I'm totally craving some sort of predictable schedule, or rhythm to our days.
-I love cooking...WHEN children are not screaming or clamoring to come into the kitchen/be picked up/have a snack/screaming/etc.
-I haven't read a really amazing book in awhile. If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
-My parents are in Switzerland and my sister is in Denmark. I'm so thankful for Skype, which has allowed us to video chat with both of them!
