Summer? What Summer?

It has rained almost this entire summer. I feel as if there hasn't been a summer at all. I hate that the girls have not really been able to enjoy the outdoors very much and now Skyler is about to start kindergarten. Can you believe that? She will be 5 in August. Oh, yea! 5!!! And trust me she is soooo excited about her b-day party and starting school. How funny is this....she wants school supplies for her birthday. We are going to have her party at Yogi Bear Jelly Stone Park in Waller, TX. There are so many things that kids can do there but it is ALL OUTDOORS, so the rain better stop!
Madison is growing by the day. Her and Skyler are "best friends"...well until Skyler tries to keep her from doing something that she is not supposed to do or picks her up to take her some where. Madison is VERY independent and doesn't like Skyler stepping in her way.
The girls are so different and special in their own way. Skyler, has become such a beautiful, sweet, and good little girl who has always had fear of things. Madison is getting so big and turning into such an affectionate baby who has never known the word fear. She would jump off the roof and never think twice. The ironic thing is that Madison has never really hurt herself and Skyler has broken 3 bones, 2 teath almost busted out and has had 3 surgeries even though she is so careful. Oh, and yes we have 2 baby gates ordered for the stairs in the new house. That was the first thing I thought of since we have one MAJOR accident prone daughter and one that isn't scared of a thing and would probably see falling down the stairs as fun...well until she got really hurt. I don't want to take the chance, no more ER visits for me please!!!
As for the house. The walk through went well and we are scheduled to close and move in on Monday the July 30th. We plan on having a get together once we get in and settled. We will let everyone know and hope ya'll can make it.
