We love summer so that we have lots and lots of time to play with our friends! I don't know what Michael and Joshua are going to do in September when they have to go to different schools. I am sure they do not realize that they will not be together. It is sad. They love each other like brothers!

It is amazing what gel, humidity and a little genetic intervention can do! I had been wondering if I could get Samantha's hair to produce a bit more curl and ta-da! It does! We don't do this to her hair everyday, but it is nice to know my curly hair landed with at least one of my kids--she will probably hate it when she gets older:)
Joshua has been begging Kris if they could sleep out on the trampoline. But, since the bugs and mosquitoes are plentiful in our backyard they decided to put the tent on the trampoline to avoid nasty bites. It was a great idea until Kris realized that since he was the heaviest all the kids gravitate towards him in the night. He spent the night pushing them out of his way so he wouldn't get too claustrophobic. They took the lap top out and watched movies and had a great time. The kids could have done this all summer, but we limited it to 2 nights. Kris couldn't handle any more little kid knees in his back!

My kids love to sleep in the tent. We just put it up in our play room and the kids will sleep there for weeks if they could. They move all their toys, books, etc into the tent so it's like their room.
