The Extreme heat! It has been so hot here that in some ways I feel like we might as well have snow on the ground. I know, I know, I shouldn't say that, but honestly, the parks are empty, it's too hot to be outside (even at 8am) and we have cabin fever! I'm hoping that it cools off in the next few days so we can get back to enjoying summer.
Alex has been taking a summer camp at a local park district. He is doing such a good job. He comes home every day and tells us about what he's doing and then his friends he played with. I'm pretty proud of him. Every other Friday he gets to go to the splash pad. He has been having so much fun. I can't wait to see him in preschool this fall.
Paige is toddling around like nobody's business. She is trying more and more to talk and repeat everything we say. Of course her favorite word right now is "mine." Alex gets quite upset whenever Paige says it. He doesn't understand why "she says that everything is her's." They are starting to play together more which is fun to see.
My 3 Day Walk for the Cure is coming up in just 2 weeks. My sister and I are looking forward to it. We're excited to be able to spend time together and talk without kids interrupting one another. We are praying that it isn't so hot like it has been this last week. If you want to come out and support us we'd love to see some familiar faces along the way. Here's the information: http://www.the3day.org/site/PageServer?pagename=CH_Spectator
I'll post again after the walk to let you know how it went. Thank you for everyone who has supported us.
