Gold medalists in the family!!

Summer is here and so is the heat and watching the Olympic swimming time trials it has geared me up for the Olympics and to write a blog about the boys and swimming.
The thermometer has been reaching close to 100 degrees for the past couple of days and the forecast for the next week doesn’t look like we are going to get much relief anytime soon.So that means that we are either playing inside or we are only going to be outside if there is a large source of cool water in the close vicinity.So in our mind that leaves two spots to be either out back in our pool or down at Legends dipping our toes in the water fountain.
The past two weekend we have ended up down at Legends on Saturday evening to grab a quick bite to eat and enjoy the summer weather and the cooler evening weather, we were also able to catch some free live music while down there which made Brodie happy he was able to enjoy playing in the water and dance around a little bit!

Keaton seems to have natural love for the water; he is…

Martha in the making

One Saturday morning my mom came over and said she was talking to a friend of hers who makes her own laundry and dishwasher soaps and said it really wasn’t that difficult so mom and I decided we were going to make a batch, my mom had no idea that I had been going back and forth on the topic and it was a shock to me that she had any interest at all in taking on the task.The thought was a bit daunting to me, I mean really who makes these products when you can just run to the store and grab one off the shelf.  I figured that I would let her make a batch and see how it turned out, she bought all the needed ingredients and I thought if it went well for her that I would just use some of her extra ingredients and start my own batch.Mom was successful and that pretty much solidified my decision to make my own.So on Sunday I ran over to moms and grabbed the box that contained the ingredients and utensils need to begin the journey.Both soaps turned out to be a complete success!
