In the Summer, Summer Time....

School is out!! YAHOO!!! Actually it has been out since June 4th but we have been busy. Good and bad. I will bullet point it for you:



  • the last day of school I found out that I won the biggest loser with 4.1% of my body weight (I beat out the girl who had lap band - barely!!)

  • took a trip to Kansas City with the in-laws

  • my grandfather passed away from multiple brain tumors (the greatest man, Evie's middle name is because of him) - this is the 2nd grandfather I have lost this year

  • I have worked out a lot and introduced Evie to the gym daycare - she would rather be home with Dad but sometimes that is not an option

  • I have Evie enrolled in little gym class, music class and she is going to story time at the library - her first time socializing with babies instead of older kids - so cute!!

  • I got my group fitness certification - easier than I thought it would be

  • this weekend I will be taking the class to become a certified turbo kickboxing instructor

  • in August I will be taking the class to become a certified zumba instructor - man I need to practice because I am not so great at this

  • I am filling out my new hire paperwork for the gym today so I can stop paying my gym membership - YAHOO!!! - oh and they also want me to start teaching a class in August - NERVOUS!!

I think that is about it. But here is the best part of blogging.....pictures!!



I decided to feed Evie to a frog, he spit her out!
I totally heart the Great Wolf Lodge!

Evie eating instruments in music class.

Man she loves her little gym class.


We are in the pool everyday. She actually practices kicking and trying to get things in the water.

We got her a wagon!

Just looking cute in the hotel waiting to swim.


Evie is 8 months old today! She has 1 tooth (and another one coming). She crawls everywhere, loves to read and is standing up on everything. She likes to try to climb things and LOVES people. We are very happy and blessed and hope your summer is great too!!


By the way, this is my 299th post. Maybe I can come up with something good for 300.
