Summer Fun

I'm so sad summer is almost over! We've had a lot of fun, especially since Greg didn't take any classes this summer. Greg is now doing 12 credits and working 30 hours, but his classes are spread out in the day, so he has to work around that. Kind of a pain. On the plus side, we're already a week into fall semester, so only 15 weeks to go!
Fun at the park- Isaac's first time down a slide.

Will loved the zoo this summer, especially the elephants. And, of course, the merry-go-round, or "up and down," as he calls it.
I love being able to bathe both the boys at once, and they have a lot of fun in the tub together.
Will jumped in the laundry basket and asked me to take his picture.
How many Ritz crackers can you fit in your mouth? This kid got in 3.

My New Favorite

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows is my new favorite book! Please, please read it! The format of the book is all letters which is different to read but used so wonderfully by the authors to tell the story. The places and characters are so vivid; I really think that if I visited Guernsey Island today I would be able to meet them all. Read it- you'll love it!

Our little Isaac is rolling now! I can't believe it! He had only been really working on it for a couple of days, and then he did it. The first time was on Friday. I put a ball just out of his reach for incentive and he rolled right over to get it and then chewed it to death. He can even roll front to back too. He is so strong and determined. He loves to play on the floor. This picture is right after he rolled the first time and you can tell by the look on his face how pleased he is with himself.

Yesterday I got the boys dressed for church and then realized they matched, so of course, we had to take a picture!

Last night Greg went to bed a little before me and I jumped on the computer really quick and found out Smith's is doubling coupons today and tomorrow (actually it started Sunday). So, crazy girl that I am, I got up at 5:00 am (ok, I was already awake by 4:00) and drove off to the store without telling Greg! I didn't want to wake him up, plus he would have just told me I was crazy anyway! The shopping was well worth it, though. Here's what I got for free:
5 tubes of Colgate toothpaste
2 Reach flossers
3 packages of dental floss
5 tooth brushes
3 4-packs of yogurt
5 bottles of salad dressing
1 jar of pickles
I also got Honey Bunches of Oats cereal for .88/box, family size yogurt for .38, deodorant for .25, Huggies wipes for 1.09 and 1.59, and Extra gum 3-packs for .19! In all, I got $79.85 in groceries for $8.64! Not bad for a beginner, I think. Yea for coupons!

Bear Lake

We spent last weekend camping at Bear Lake with Greg's parents. Will had such a good time swimming, playing in the sand, and being outside all day. I think Isaac had fun swimming too and was spoiled being held every second. My favorite part was being up in the mountains in the COOL air!
