The short take...

We're enjoying a crazy summer (already), before Kate starts Kindergarten (ALREADY!!?) this fall. Our kids are so much fun, and we are SO blessed!

Another week has come and gone! They really are flying by! We've had a good week; Kyla's mom was up here from Sunday through Wednesday, and we had a great visit. This weekend, Michael's grandparents are coming into town for a delayed birthday celebration for Val, so it'll be great to be able to spend some time with them, too!

Papa is up visiting my aunt and uncle for a few weeks, hopefully getting some time to relax and get some fishing done! Ruby (for those of you who know her) is back home from the hospital and doing really awesome recovering from her surgery- better than anyone would have guessed was possible after a surgery like that!

Kate is doing amazingly well at preschool- she really loves going now! When you ask her in the morning if she wants to go to preschool, she runs over to the door all excited. Since it's now jacket weather, she's mastered getting that on and off (with help, of course), but still loves playing outside as much as ever. Her ability to communicate grows by the day, with new words and signs...and she's being able to mimic sounds we ask her to repeat amazingly well.

Kyla's getting ready to leave on a business trip this weekend- she'll be gone leaving Daddy and Kate together alone for a record amount of time; part or all of 5 days! We'll all miss each other, but it should be a good relaxing time for her, and a great fun time for Michael and Kate!

Hope you all have a great weekend...think snow! ;-)
(...after Kyla's left on her trip, that is)!
