well, we have been up to a lot in the past month. Sorry it has been so long since I posted pictures, it has been crazy. Everyone is doing well, the girls are enjoying every minute of the summer, Karl is doing well at work, he has only had kids like 3 times this summer. I am recuperating from having two wisdom teeth pulled this past Saturday, I am sore but getting better by the day, thanks to Ibuprofen, it is my best friend right now.

The girls are in swim lessons, and there are a ton of pictures of Ella, since she is in the tot class, they pretty much get to do what they want. It is mainly to get them used to the water. Kylie is also in it, but it is hard to get pictures of her because I am usually chasing Ella making sure she doesn't sneak into the pool, which she has almost done MANY times. Swim lessons have been great for both girls, Kylie is a little fish, but is scared of the boy teachers. Ella on the other hand LOVES the boy teachers, and she has pretty good taste if you ask me. Kylie however has swam with the boy teachers after seeing her fearless sister do it. Next week is the last week of swim lessons, it will be sad, but nice to be able to be home every morning. Oh I am supposed to tell everyone that Kylie jumped off of the diving board yesterday by herself, again no pictures because Ella was wanting to go into the 12 feet of water, she is crazy.

Well, it has been a while since I have added anything. It has been crazy around here since we have gotten back from Michigan. My roomate Erin from college and her family come to visit the day after we got back, then I headed to Milwaukee for summerfest with Erin. It was really fun. I have been helping Chris paint a house. the whole house, now I have a new understanding why it costs so much for professional painters sto come in. that has taken up pretty much every evening and most weekends for the past few weeks. Kylie is 41/2 and that was the only the 2nd time I spent a night away from her, it was weird, but nice. Both girls are in swim lessons, and they love it. I will have pictures of them hopefully tomorrow. THey are both the youngest in their class, but your wouldn't be able to tell, because they have no fear of the water. Ella is actually in a class that is for 3 year olds. There is a large water slide in the pool which they both go down, Ella is in someones lap and Kylie does it alone.
Karl is back at work, working REALLY hard, he has had two days where he has had kids, yes that is what I said 2 days with kids, or should I say KID. None of the kids come to school so he is basically on the computer and talking to co workers all day, it is a hard life.
Well I will hopefully have pics for everyone this weekend til then talk to you soon

As you can see we had a great time in Michigan. It was great because EVERYONE was in. The girls had a blast playing with all of their aunts, uncles, girlfriends, boyfriends, cousins, and grandparents. It was also nice because Karl and I got a bit of a break because of course the girls wanted nothing to do with us. Kylie always says she is going to tire out everyone when she gets there, and I think she was very successful.
