Crazy Days

So, life is very crazy in the Place household these days.
I have been slacking on my blog and I apologize to my followers!

Pippa is beginning to sit up already.  She is also teething, thus the chewing on the hand and fingers and tons of drool.

We had a very busy weekend, while George took Paisley to the movies to see Brave for a daddy/daughter date...Pippa and I spent quality time baking cookies.

For Father's Day we had a great surprise.  Auntie Hana and Uncle Carl were here to visit.  We had them come over for a Father's Day BBQ and we had a great time.
It was a fun Hawaiian visit with tons of food all day and tons of laughs and stories.

Paisley made George blueberry pancakes for Father's Day!  She is so sweet!

Paisley graduated from Preschool.
She actually is still in preschool, but completed the year.
She is not old enough for kindergarden yet.
Summer School is in session and she is making tons of new friends.

Pippa is growing way too fast...she is already in 6 month clothes!
So sad, but on the positive side...we know she will be tall and let's hope...skinny like she is now.

In addition, to children, a husband, home life, church life, college life, work life, I decided to coach little league softball all stars with a friend.   Yes, I know I am crazy!  I am feeling how out of shape and weak I am daily.
I need to get back to the gym and take care of my aging body.

I am having fun though...we are coaching 9 and 10 year old girls.  It is so much fun to see them play.  I dug out my old glove and I have really enjoyed playing again myself.  Wish us luck...the tournament begins next week.

More has happened and life goes on...this week will be another crazy week for sure...but at least it is sunny today!

Kona's Graduation from Western

Saturday was Kona's graduation ceremony from Western Washington University!!!
Hurray!!!
The girls and I met up with the family Saturday night for the celebration dinner.
Here is Paisley giving her uncle Kona tons of love.

I love this picture of them!

Thanks Melissa for taking them and sending them my way.


The graduation ceremony.


Here is Kona-we are so proud of him!


Our Week

My first week of my two new classes...yes, I know I love to torture myself.
Accounting and Macroeconomics at the same time with a full time job, a 3 month old, a toddler, a calling at church, swim lessons and a husband.  What was I thinking!  The first week kicked my butt.

We had a scare this week.  Abbey started limping like Angus did.
We took her to the vet and they thought she might have torn something...they gave us some medicine and she is doing much better.  We have a check up Wed to see if she is in the clear.  We were preparing ourselves to have to put her down on Wed.

I have a new calling...Laurel Advisor...love it! 
I love to teach and I love YW's.  Plus I only teach twice a month.
Easy breezy!

I worked on organizing things.
We have 4 lunch boxes on the counter and I wanted to get them off the counter.
We bought those 3M hooks and there you go.

My angels ready for bed.

I bought this bed last week.
I am literally a zombie with the lack of sleep I am getting.
I am grouchy and moody...I need some sleep.
I have tried the swing, the crib, my arm works, but that too is not a good night sleep.
This seems to be working better.  She is down at least 4 hours at a time in between feedings.
It is simple, just like a hammock and rocks like a rocking chair.
I bought the girls matching dresses.
Love it...I can't wait to buy more matching outfits for them.

I went through baby clothes, Pippa is in 3 month clothes now, so I packed up the newborns and 0-3 and they went to two gals that are having girls in a month or so...so glad to help them out.
I even found another box this weekend of clothes that I didn't know I had...lets just say I got a little carried away with buying baby clothes.

Paisley took a picture of herself...check out those rosy cheeks.

Baby toys again.  We picked this up this weekend...Pippa seems to enjoy it.
Paisley cleaning her room...I am so tired of the mess!

Friday after work we had a family BBQ put on by Paisley's school.
It was fun.  I had a great time talking with friends and her teachers.
Again...I love this school and the teachers are awesome!
Here are some school mates of Paisley's having fun.
This was another thank you to the parents put on by the school.

Paisley had a ball...I love to see her smiling.
She has such a passion for life. 

Many more things happened I am sure, but these are the pictures that I have to share.
Have a great week!
