Daphne is learning to feed herself with a spoon.

It is really just easier to eat straight from the bowl!

A close-up for Grandpa Steve – don’t you just love that gooey face?!

So I made it through the month of June. I think I only missed 2 days of pictures – not too bad. Although, I have probably spoiled the grandparents – they will expect this all the time!! Ha ha!!

So. . . . I didn’t take any pictures today.

Our day started out at 5:20 – Lucy decided that was an appropriate time to get up for the day. That didn’t go over well. She is getting up earlier and earlier and I have no idea what to do about it. If we send her back to bed, she ends up waking Norah and then eventually, Daphne. I do not want this to become a habit. I am open to suggestions!!!
The girls had swim lessons this morning and they are doing great!!!
Knowing that it was going to be a long day, we invited ourselves over to the Morrison’s pool for the afternoon. Poor Heather – besides inviting myself to her pool, she also usually helps with at least one of my kids. Her kids are fish – seriously, it is amazing. Mine – not so much. Well, Daphne thinks she is a fish, but since she isn’t it is a little tricky to keep a hand on her and help Norah and Lucy swim. I totally should have taken my camera, but I forgot. The kids had a blast!! We were there for several hours, and then we headed to the library for a quick visit, then home. The kids were exhausted and crashed by 7.
Hopefully, Lucy will sleep later tomorrow morning!!

Lemonade Stand!
Norah, Lucy, Savannah, and Sawyer had a lemonade stand today!! They made about $12 total – honestly, not as much as I thought considering it was so warm. They were hilarious trying to sell lemonade. We were having a garage sale at the same time so as soon as someone new started walking up the driveway, the kids would yell, “Lemonade for sale! Lemonade for sale!” They would sometimes yell it until the person walked away. They also were a little skimpy on the amount of lemonade they gave people. We had to remind them to FILL the cups up. Cracked us up.
