August 2013

I am actually entering a post in the month it is. 
August started with Rob and I heading to Chicago August 2-4th.  I had leadership training as I will be President of the Women's Council of REALTORS Omaha Chapter in 2014.  Aunt Michelle, Uncle Andy, and Sadie and Simon came and stayed with Shea and Wes.  Uncle Andy Painted Shea and Wes's faces and they loved it!! 

We also went to a Storm Chaser baseball game with cousin Hank and Uncle Steve and Aunt Jordan

We went to the Wine and Hot Air Balloon Festival.  The line was a little long so we decided to watch them from the back of Dad's truck and then follow them.  Shea and Wes love to watch the hot air balloons and we are fortunate to see a lot of them out our front door throughout the year :)


August has brought two big activities for Shea and Wes Preschool and Soccer!!  Preschool started August 15th.  Shea and Wes are going Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:45-11:45 at Imagine and Explore on 192nd & Q.  Shea has Ms. Kris and Wes has Ms. Aimee for teachers.  They also go to Music class through Music in Motion after their Thursday class from 11:45 - 12:30.  Soccer also started on August 24th.  They did ok.  They cried a little and ran around a lot - it is fun to watch and will be interested to see how the season goes - it is just nice to have them out interacting with other kids in a more structured and fun arena.  I have no doubt by the end of the season they will have come a long way.

We also went to the zoo and the splash park.  And of course too many other things to Remember - Wes can spell his name - Shea is close.  And they know lots of songs and everything most soon to be 3 year olds do.  I love watching them grow up and all the time I get to spend with them.
