This summer so far...

In the last 6 weeks...
We've moved into a new house...
Gunnar had his first trip to the ER and got stitches (freak accident fell on the edge of a milk crate)...
We've had 4 sets of visitors in our new house...
I've rehearsed and will open a play this weekend...
The whole family had a nasty cold...
Scored lots of "deals" at dozens of garage and estate sales...
Gunnar got Hand Mouth and Foot Disease (thankfully it only lasted a few days)...
Lived through 4+ days of over 100 degree weather...
battled it out with the landlords from hell and finally got our security deposit back...
John started his new job...
John made a patio out of nothing (or so it seemed)...
Gunnar has learned an average of 10.3 new words per day...
Gunnar learned to spell his name, count to 10 starting with 0, and started taking 3 hour long naps...
Gunnar mastered the ipad and knows more about it than I do...
Helped a friend find an apartment in Chicago...
I started writing a play, and will finish the first draft by the end of next week...
I made 10 onesies, 12 pairs of earrings, 1 custom baby mobile and 1 birthday sweater all orders for The Happy Hoot...

...and that's just the note worthy stuff...
it's been a busy summer...
...a well deserved summer vacation is heading our way sometime in August....someone give a hint to my husband...I'm liking the idea of a cozy cottage in Canada...
