Where did June go?

Wow I can't believe I missed a whole month of posting! (not really, I'm bad about consistency)

June was a busy month. But it's over so I can't remember what we did. Well, we did take our family vacation to Galveston. That was a great trip. Emma had fun at the beach and the pool and we all enjoying eating out. We also had visits from all the grandparents and Emma enjoyed those immensely!

July is going to be every busier than June. Emma is taking dance lessons starting next week. Today I bought ballet and tap shoes for her. If I had planned ahead I might have been able to get some used, but planning ahead is not always easy for me. We also have more family visiting for a week later this month, then Emma is going to have a weekend with my parents while Tony and I have a stay-cation here at home. It will be my first time away from Emma for more than just a few hours ever. I hope she and I both do ok. I've been talking about it and preparing her so I think it will be ok.

In other news, the kitties are now outside cats. We transitioned them in early May, for a few reasons. Mostly I could not keep up with cleaning up the cat vomit and then Anya started peeing on the couch, and that was really the last straw. Anya is SO happy outside, she rarely wants to come in and I know she's an explorer. Chloe is not so happy and has clawed a good bit of insulation from around the door as she tries to get in throughout the day. One day I'd love to have a cat door installed, but that's way down on the list of many other things that I need or want to be done before the baby arrives.

I will try to be better about posting this month, even if it's a short update. Please check our family website for pictures and more news about Emma and baby boy!
