End of summer...

Not much has been going on since we got back from Gulf Shores. Leah has been working during the week, so I've gotten to hang out with John Parker a lot. I had to go to school last Wednesday and Thursday to look at our new curriculum, and I'm already stressed out! So now I'm a little sad that this is the last week of summer. It seems to have flown by! Of course, it doesn't help that this is also the last day of my twenties. That was really weird to think about this morning! Tomorrow I'll be 30!!! Yikes... I keep thinking that I haven't really done everything that I expected to have done by 30. Oh, well, at least I have read the whole Harry Potter series...haha! Here are some pictures of John Parker. I'm sure I'll have some new ones of Anderson tomorrow. I'm babysitting for her tonight, so I'm hoping to get some cute ones. We have to work on getting some good ones of them together soon!

I LOVE my fingers!

What? Do I have something on my face?

AHA!! I found the thumb!

This was from the morning that I kept both of them. It reminded me of working in the baby room at Colonial Heights Daycare...except there I had 5 at at time! (of course, I WAS a bit younger then!)

Last day at the beach...

I'm so sad that we have to leave tomorrow, but I do miss Anderson and John Parker. I forgot that I had these on my camera from Anderson's last day here. We were sitting out on the balcony watching the boats in the harbor while the rest of the family took a pontoon boat out.

This is right after they dropped Mimi off and picked Rebecca up.

Anderson's photo shoot

One of the most fun parts of this week is watching Anderson really become aware of what's going on! She is really funny and smiles when you talk to her (mostly in the mornings!) and watches everybody walk around. Rebecca said that she heard me laugh from one end of the condo to the other and grinned...that might be a coincidence, though! I've loved spending so much time with her, but I do miss John Parker. He got to eat his first baby food today, and I'm so sad that I missed it! I'm sure we'll have plenty of time to catch up next week, though!

We got to watch the Destin fireworks last night from our balcony. We heard today that it was about $150,000 worth, and I can believe it! It was the most amazing show I've ever seen! This was the finale (but it's pretty long!). Anderson slept through the whole thing!!!
