Our Summer

Lots going on! The summer was a mix of busy and slow. Hot days kept us in the house a lot, but weekends and vacations made the summer go by pretty fast. The 4th of July was a blast with a trip to the lake and fireworks. We were blessed to have had one last visit with Ron's father in Wyoming. We took both boys and the trip went better than we could have imagined. Titus was really drawn to Ron's dad and would walk by him and smile. Ron's father later passed away on August 4th and is now with the Lord in Heaven. He fought his fight with cancer bravely. Ron's sister came and paid us a visit with her 2 year old son Owen. It was a blast hanging out. We went to the water park, out to eat at Mikata, and took the kids to the park to swing. Owen is a bundle of energy. The beginning of August Ron and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary! It feels like it went by fast, yet it feels like we have been together forever. The boys and I took off for Florida the next day for a week of fun, swimming and family time with my mom, sister and her children. Justice has turned into a really good swimmer with his floaties on. He has such a good time. Titus also loved the sand. He was however really sick, which was a little bit of a bummer. It was a wonderful time! Ron got back from his father's funeral a few days after we got back from the beach. We had some more lake outings and lots of fun together as a family.

The boys are getting older and so much fun. They have tons of energy and are super cute. Justice continues to get more aware of himself and things around him. He picks up things we say or hears on his shows. He tells everyone that leaves to make sure they were their seatbelts (got it from Dora/Little Bill). He loves his little collections of things such as the trucking equipment from Bob the Builder, Blues Clues and WowWow Wubsy figures. He will line them all up and tell us what each one is. He likes the word "No" and uses it more and more now even when he wants something he says no. Justice started preschool this week. He cries when I drop him off, but I think he has fun. The teachers say he does really good and is a good sharer.

Titus is a good walker now, and is getting faster. He loves to run to me and wrap his arms around my neck and I pick him up. He is very affectionate. He is still such a little thing and I just want to eat him up. He is also very sneaky. When he wants something Justice he waits for him to put whatever it is down and Titus swoops in and runs off with it no matter if Justice was done or not. He is a smart little fella, he loves to stack things and put things together likes puzzles. He isn't talking very much yet, but says "Yeah" and "Da" and "Ah" a lot. He is a TV head just like his brother. He is so precious and sweet. Both of my boys are so beautiful and special!
