Summer is here!

Well summer is here and man it is hot! We have been staying very busy this summer with Kale's sports, both boys swim lessons and also working!

Kale finished up soccer and started up T-Ball he is really enjoying it and we are as well. The games are quite entertaining as the kids all chase the ball no matter if they are the outfield team or not! Kale got his picture back this week. We missed the group shot (oops) but our individual turned out great! Maks loves supporting his brother and yelling from the side lines. He is going to have it all figured out by the time it is his turn to play sports!

The boys are both enrolled in swim lessons. We went ahead and bumped Kale up to the Preschool group (supposed to be ages 4 and 5) because we didn't feel like Kale would get much out of a parent and me class at his age. We were a little unsure at first but he is doing great in his class. They are learning to go underwater and open their eyes, swim on their stomachs and backs, push off the wall and start swimming along with many other techniques!

Maks is still too little to put in anything other than the parent assisted class. He hasn't been a big fan of the class but he is starting to come around the more we take him. The class requires the parent to hold the child the entire time since they are in the deep end. He would rather get down and run and play in the water by himself. He is also very leery of other people that he doesn't know. This is not new to us he has always been this way no matter who he is around. I have a few pictures that I will get uploaded soon but I don't currently have the adapter beside me! ;)

It's hard to believe that it is already July 2nd! This year has just flown by so far! This weekend is Hutch Fest. The town has many events and fun activities for the kids and then of course on the 4th is the parade and the fireworks! We plan to attend a few different events but it is so hot out we will probably spend more time close to the water than to downtown Hutchinson!

I have been working fewer and fewer hours as the summer gets near. I have about 3 more weeks of no work now until I am back to work full time. I am enjoying my time this summer but it is quite a change for me to have so much time off work. The boys daycare was closed this week for her vacation so we have all three been home during the days while Erin goes to work. Maks birthday is coming up very quickly. Of course I have put off planning it but I think it will come together just fine. We are going to have a Mickey Mouse cake and a sports theme! Those are his favorite things! Well better go and get ready for the day! Watch for more pictures to come!
