I am considering this my first full-week of "normal" summer....

meaning non-vacation, "we're bored, what can we do", kind of days.  It has been a bit overcast for the last couple of days, which after the 100 degree heat in Texas should be welcome.  Instead it's a bit of a let down.  It's summer darn it, and here in the Pacific NW we are owed our warm and SUNNY summers. None of this wet stuff.  Emily is partaking in soccer camp at the University of Portland, and despite the rain yesterday is having a fantastic time.

The rest of us are trying to clean, which really means I am cleaning and they are coming up with reasons why they *cannot, possibly* clean anything.

I hope everyone watched the US women play in the semi-finals today....yes, my world now really is run totally by soccer games ;)  It was an amazing second half which I thoroughly enjoyed from the elliptical machine at the gym.  I found during times when I wanted them to move faster, I tended to go faster- I'm sure anyone watching me was cracking up.

I'm glad to see you've returned to blogging! I started reading your blog when my daughter (five at the time) was diagnosed with a mild hearing loss. She's almost 7 now and doing great with her hearing aids. Your kids are absolutely gorgeous, and it looks like y'all are having a great summer!

How is everything going with their CIs, aids, and their hearing? Hope all is well!

Thanks for the comment :) I'm glad your daughter is doing fantastic with her hearing aids....
As I'm sure you've figured out they are a great tool, but can be a pain to keep track of at the pool, or at a water park (especially with four hearing aids, and four CIs-LOL). That is what the pictures don't show...the sheer panic when a hearing aid goes missing :)
