Brad had his last council meeting Monday night! Woo Hoo!! It was a great experience for him but being so busy with a lot of other things it will be nice to cross this off of the list! Besides Brad's full-time job he started doing hog chores every night. They don't take long but it is just an extra thing to fill up time. He is on the fire department so he has that meeting once a month and the various calls that they get. Living in a small town there aren't too many thank goodness! Brad likes to stay busy!
On to me! Between trying to keep the house clean, watching children during the day and taking care of my own kids there isn't much time for a whole lot! I love reading but I am even having a hard time doing that unless it is a children's book! I am staying very busy with daycare which is great but sometimes a little over whelming! Thankfully this summer I don't have too many kids and not every day which is great! I have a whole list of projects I would love to get done this summer but not sure that they will all get done!
Abby keeps us on our toes! She is a typical 3 year old (I think). My sister always said that she thought 3 was worse than 2! I would have to say I agree! Sometimes I think Abby is 3 going on 13. Oh the things she says during the day! Like yesterday for instance I was talking to her about something, I don't remember what but she says to me "Mom, stop talking to me." I just looked at her with I'm guessing a surprised look on my face and said "what did you just say to me?" She didn't want to repeat it! Oh the joys! She loves to talk! She will talk about anything and everything. She always says "remember when......." That's usually how her sentences start out! So cute! She is a lot of fun and is starting to like to pick on her baby brother! He just laughs so I haven't gotten too mad but there are times she gets a little rough!
Benjamin is 6 months old already! Crazy how time flies! We just got him moved into his own room! He has been waking up during the night so now we just let him cry! I feel horrible but we have too or he will never learn! Last night it worked wonderful! We got a whole night of sleep and so did Benjamin after crying for a while! Hopefully that will lessen as the nights go on! He gets to the toys he wants by rolling across the floor! It is crazy what he can get at without crawling! I think we are in trouble once he figures out the crawling thing! He is a lot of fun and definitely a mommy's boy. He always has to have mom in eyesight!
That is an update on the family! We are hoping to go on a vacation this summer! We were going to go to Wisconsin Dells but I think we changed our minds! It now looks like we are going to go the Black Hills. We figured we could do Wisconsin Dells when the kids are a little older and will get more from it! Ok, enough of my rambling and onto pictures!

All ready to go

He was so happy that morning. Before the tubes afterwards was a different story
Ben's first time camping. He did great and loved it
Watching the parade

This was this morning. Ben was playing on the floor and the next time I looked at him he was sleeping!
Hope everyone is having a great summer!
