I Looooooooooovvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeee Summer!!!

I am loving summer! It's not that I don't enjoy my summer break every year, but this year seems even better. We started with a trip to Iowa/South Dakota for a friend's wedding, followed up by mother in law's knee replacement and a 10 day visit from Rob's sister and nephew so it was a crazy start, but now everything is calm and we are loving it!

Ryan and I have gone swimming almost every day this week. From the beginning he's been a water baby but he is having such a blast in the water. He does really well with his arm floaty and today he made a littl friend and they were jumping in from the edge together - the kid has no fear. I love it too as it's a great way to cool off, spend quality time with my boy and at the same time, exhaust him so he'll take a good nap when we get home. :)

Monday we're starting potty training - should be interesting. Today he actually came in to me and said, 'No Diaper,' and took it off. I showed him his big boy underwear and he wanted to wear them. Yes! I'm hoping this will be easy but I'm not holding my breath. The kid can be darn stubborn when he wants.

I've been knitting a ton. So far this summer I've done a few inches on, I think 6 scarves. I've also been knitting mini stockings, a mini sweater and I'm trying mini hats for the mini exchange. They're addictive. I've got it down to a science and can usually get one done during Ryan's nap. Of course, being summer, I've been napping then too so I usually knit while he's playing or in teh evening after he's in bed.

Off to knit (Ry's asleep after swimming this a.m.)
