Happy Birthday Emmie Lou! Happy Birthday America!

Happy July!  If July ain't hot where you are.... come on down to Texas... we like it in the 100's EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!  Gasp!  How do we do it?  Lots of popsicles, water, swimming and REST!  July has been relaxing so far... celebrated the 4th and started Mommy School!  That is right... the kids wake up and beg me to do WORK!  :)  I bought some workbooks that work on reading and writing and math for Noah.  For Emmie ...mainly writing and the alphabet.  For both of them a Hidden Pictures workbook that they LOVE!  It has been so fun!  Some days Noah doesn't want to do his reading... and that just puts me into teacher mode of ways to make it exciting and new for him.  :)  Here are some pics from Emmie's birthday in June and a few from the 4th.  Enjoy looking at my 3 little fireworks!  :)
