The final countdown, chit chat

So after all of my whining about WHEN?? is school going to start, my kids are all over each other and I can't make it STOP!...here we are in the final week of summer.

The weather is gorgeous and the kids are actually behaving pretty well. Despite staying up late to watch the Olympics. Savi is enamored with Michael Phelps, can you blame her? Her quote "Do you know who is the BEST SWIMMER IN THE WORLD?? pause MICHAEL PHELPS!!!"

And we're currently of the opinion that Nastia Luiken got ROBBED of her gold medal on the uneven bars!! That was so wrong.

We spent 3 hours playing and splashing at the local Rec center outdoor pool yesterday and had the pleasant surprise of 2 sets of friends arriving shortly after us, SWEET! Now we're starting to wish we had more time to get all the summer playing in. Isn't that how it always is?

Next mission, school shoes shopping!


  1. Yeah, MP's a babe.

    BTW, I totally hadn't even thought about the 780 debacle when I was shopping for a GPS. Would've been SO great to have it then!

  2. Natalie,
    Great to see your blog. We've been following the Gymnastics a bit and I think the judges are being paid off somewhere. Glad to be keeping in touch. Love your new table. Good job Chris.

  3. Phelps is definitely amazing. Just seeing him pull it all together in the precise moment that it counts is thrilling! Don't know how he manages to burn 12,000 calories a day, but it works for him! I am super disappointed in the gymnastics, too. Talk about low and disgusting. Good luck with shoe shopping and back to school frenzies!
