wow I can't believe it has been so long since I have updated. I just returned to work on the 11th of July and that has certainly been bittersweet. I love my job, but leaving both kids is tough. Of course it is harder on me then the kids I think. Jamie is doing awesome with them, getting some good daddy time and making their own routines now.

We have been boating in Cascade and spent some time at Nick W. cabin. We spent the 4th in McCall with our friends Steve and Jill and her kids in a really quaint little cottage. The fireworks on the lake were beautiful. Paige covered Noah's ears when they got loud. Such a great big sis.

I have started biking with Noah in the back of me in a seat and that is so much fun. He loves it and Paige loves to ride her "big girl bike" now. This morning she put on her "running shoes" and ran in between mailboxes(about 100yards) about 6 times. She said " I am going for a run now." Monkey see, monkey doo....

Noah is 4 months now, 16lbs, rolling a bit and laughing when I snort and nibble at his under chin by his ears. Still waiting for that bust out belly laugh though. That is my favorite. He is a real turkey at night still. He seems to do better when I am not here though. Go figure. Daddy is so good.

Paige is getting ready to start school and she is practicing raising her hand, writing her letters and identifying numbers constantly. She tells a lot of stories about her teacher and her friends from work. Lately she has been putting her baby dolls under her shirt and then going and having them on her bed. She is so attentive to them. She has got breastfeeding down to a science. Hehe.

Jamie is loving his job, it seems more and more each day. Such a blessing. I love seeing him so motivated and so passionate. My business man! Working hard for the family. His last semester of school starts in August and well it is going to really stretch us. But we can do this for 4 more months. Yeha! We are so proud of him.

Well it is aobut 5am and I need to get some rest. Talk to you all soon.
