Summer Fun

Ok as many of you know being a mother is not always the easiest thing in the world, now is it. Dakota seems to be pushing every button of mine lately and is waiting to see if he will get a time out or not. Let's just say that he gets his share of time outs.

We are trying to teach him it's not ok to hit, yell at his cousins. I feel so bad for Haleigh for most of the time he is getting made at her and than she gets yelled at. We started our morning off with a time out in his room and than it was time to change his diaper. We had been doing so good with getting his diaper changed and than Kingston was born and we had to start all over again. Well I finally told Kodi that I am the Mom and what I say goes. And he is not going to be ruling our house hold any more. Well it's been a trying week but I am sticking to my guns.

Yesterday was another great and fun day for us. Aaron is on the night shift and so that leaves me to put the kids mainly Dakota to bed since Kingston will go sleep on his own. We have been planing to go swimming at the pool but it's been kind of cold and the pool doesn't open until noon during the week which totally puts a cramp in our thinking for the morning. Since Aaron doesn't have to be to work until 2:30 we were going to take the kids to the pool in the morning until 1:30ish when Aaron has to get ready for work, but now that the pool doesn't open until later it's going to be a short day for us in the water. But it will still be fun!

Dakota has been growing and having a lot of fun playing with his barn animals. During our outting he loves to watch one of two movies Barnyard or Authur's Missing Pal. I can quote both in my sleep. My parents have been a saving grace for me at night. I am usually over at their house at least 3 times a week. Last night we ended up at their house around 8 pm and stayed until 10 which was pretty late for the boys. Kodi loves seeing Grandma and Pa and being with them. He plays great in the play and I really think he loves having all the toys to his self.

We are getting ready for Melissa's graduation party which is on Saturday, so Mom and Pa finished Mom's new office and it's ready for the furniture for it. Last night I helped Pa put up the shelves in the new office and than we measured the desks to see if they will fit in the office. I hope so!

It's been a very stressful past couple of days for our family. We are waiting to hear if Scott and Tara will be moving back. There is an opening here on the Minnesota team. Scott had an interview on Friday and now we have to wait until Thursday of this week to hear back. We have been praying that he will get the job and be moving back. I don't know how many of you know that they are expecting twins! Two little boys. It's very excited, which is another reason we can add to the list of waiting them to move home!

I am going to try my best to update the blog each day so that our other family how lives in Colorado and Oklahoma can see what we are up too here in Minnesota!
