Catching up

Apparently I play with my kids too much to keep up my blog.  That and I just don't sit down and do it. 

So let's see.  A month ago we went to Colorado for a conference.  It was great to see friends and wonderful to be out of the 100 degree heat. 
Kate enjoyed collecting rocks. 

We got to see our friend Jeff again.  He recently got married and we were sad to miss the wedding but logistically just couldn't make it happen with our two young kiddos.  So Patty and Jeff drove over from Nebraska to see us.  It was perfect timing too because Jeff first met Kate when she was about the same age that James was here in Colorado. 

After Colorado we came back to scorching heat and no rain.  It's been a pretty lame summer what with having to stay indoors most of the time.  We do get out to a playground sometimes.  Now is when I would like a neighbor with a swimming pool.  =) 

 Our boy is getting big!  He is attempting to sit independently these days.  I haven't gotten a picture of that yet because I have to be ready to catch him when he starts to topple.  But he's getting there.  He has rolled over once from his tummy to his back and will not repeat the stunt no matter how much tummy time he gets.  Silly boy.
 So Kate wore these pajamas when she was 9 months old.  James is 5 months and already wearing them.  Oh my.
 Loving hanging out with their daddy.  This is a toddler face we see occasionally.  She has gotten quite adept at using the pouty lip.  Most of the time we get cute smiley faces for pictures but this was not one of those times.   
Five months old!  He's getting big, growing out of all his clothes, and developing more of his personality.  He is still really chill and laid-back.  He loves to laugh at his sister and has recently been kind enough to laugh for his mommy's tricks.  Still a cuddler and a sweetie. 

We are still preparing for our move.  We are fundraising and speaking at different groups and churches.  It's a busy time.  Soon we will need to start selling furniture.  Crazy!

That's it for now.  I started this post yesterday so I need to just get it done.  More later!
