Yes, I know I'm not the greatest blogger, but like a lot of things, I will get better as time goes by and the girls get a little better about not demanding as much of my time.....hopefully! I'm trying to work with them about letting me do a little reading....we're making slow progress, but I did finish one whole book and started on another, so not bad. Well, as long as I don't think about the fact that I used to be able to read a good sized book (something like 500+ pages) in one I'm limited to about an hour and a half of time while the girls nap and boy does it go by really fast! The girls went down for their nap a little later then normal or else I'd be out trying to get some sun....I'll have to do that tomorrow or else I'll be a white ghost in the middle of summer! Okay, not really, but I would feel like it! I'm loving getting to be outside more this year, the last two years I wasn't able to get out much due to the fact of just having had a baby, so this has been nice....other then the extreme hotness! I've noticed kids never seem to notice the heat. I wonder why that is....I mean lately it's been in the upper 90's with a heat index of over 100 and they still want to play outside and I have to force them to come back inside when their faces turn bright red from the heat! It's like they don't understand the concept of heat and that it means you should want to sit in the cool AC! At least we have a pool here and we can cool off some.

Oh, news update....we're probably getting a mini van this weekend! The jeep is needing to be upgraded so yesterday we were out test driving some mini vans and I think Jacob will be doing some more test driving later today. We're looking to buy a new one; Jacob wants one that will last us awhile, but they also cost a pretty penny (I wish they only cost a penny!)...they have some pretty awesome mini vans though and Jacob wants one with the DVD players in it for the girls! I'm excited about that since that will keep them entertained on our long drives...well, it will keep Abigail entertained; Bethany is still facing backwards and hasn't discovered that movies are fun to watch. So, that's the latest and greatest of the happenings around here, other then Jacob didn't have to work today and it's always nice to have him home!
