Summer Fun!

I am beyond proud of Jaxon lately. He has gained a TON of confidence in the water this summer. Every day he begs me to go in the pool. I feel bad because I can't always let him. It is just too hard to take Reesey in the pool. She LOVES  LOVES LOVES it! And I, not so much. I love to sit by the pool, maybe stick my feet in, but to be IN the pool? No thank you. And well, with Reese around you can't really be OUT of the pool. So we only go in if Reese is sleeping or if Brian is home.

Ok. Back to confidence. Last week Jaxon went down the slide into the pool. This week, he has mastered jumping into the pool. Brian suggested he then try jumping in from the hot tub, a little higher. Jax balked! No way! It's too high and scary. A bit later, Brian went inside. A little bit after that Jaxon jumps from the hot tub!

My favorite part is as he's 'swimming' to the edge he mumbles, "this is fun" Love.

We have enjoyed some moments in our backyard. 

The lesson didn't last long. 

We've also enjoyed some inside time

Lola pushing them around in the hamper.
Jaxon has been exhibiting some jealously lately so I took him on a Mom & Jaxon date. We headed to Color Me Mine. Don't get me wrong, he has spent every waking hour with me and talking my ear off, but I guess that hasn't been enough. We had a really good time! He is such a sweet boy and was so excited to do something special. 
One of his friends from preschool, and a soon-to-be-kindergartner of mine was also painting and Jaxon invited her to sit with us. So cute. 

Abu brought over a table and chairs for the kiddos. It has been a hit! I have a love hate relationship with this table. 

Here. Love. She wants to be just like her brother. 

Her ankles crossed? Love.
Getting along? Love.
Here. Hate. She has to show her difference. And her daringness. 
Yesterday it was sitting on the table, today it was standing. Ugh. 

We visited the library for story time for the first time in Reesey's life. 
She was pretty good. She seemed to enjoy it. They sing and dance between stories and when the music stopped she'd look at me put her hands up and look around as if saying, "What happened to the music?" 

The only time she sat was when Jaxon & I did the craft. She tried to eat the glue.
