I guess we're not sweet enough to melt...

or else we definitely would have by now. It is so stinkin' hot. 10 degrees above normal all week means we have broken 100 daily. It takes 1/2 an hour to cool down the car as your back sweats and your kids complain and you lose your mind.

It is 6:30 AM here and I just went outside to water some flowers. After being greeted by the curtain of death I decided I better change into my swimsuit and try again later...when the hot breeze begins to blow. When the swimming pools feel like bathwater at 9AM, you know the only relief is to just stay indoors.

We are doing just that. We've been spending time coloring under the fan while the A/C blows full blast.

Check out these new color rolls my aunt made for the girls.


I'm sure she has a much cuter name for them, but that's what is coming to my mind at this fine summer hour. Stay tuned because when she gets her website up and running, she's planning on doing a giveaway here. She is so crafty...these little color rolls are a work of art themselves.

We've also been practicing new hairdos. My poor children were born to a hair challenged mama. You know your husband has embraced this fact when you find him trying to fix your 4 year old's hair with a stack of Wikipedia pages next to him entitled "How to Braid Hair". God love that man. I sure do.

I did manage to get Jade's locks into a little pony. Meet Bam-Bam.


Bam-Bam has been a wonderful observer all week at Lily's swimming lessons.
As far as news on that front. Hmm...well, she's the oldest one of the four and the only one with previous swimming lesson experience. Yet, she's without a doubt the most behind. I like this coach though and going every day versus once a week is giving me a glimmer of hope. I'm still sticking to my guns though and giving myself a break from lessons after this session.




This session has been fun though...there are twins in our class and then a private lesson with triplet girls going on next to us. Makes me thankful I don't have identical triplets of Lily...I seriously can't imagine swimming lesson stress x 3!

Well, I'm off to enjoy a heat advisory with a side of ozone alert...make yours a good day too.

Texas heat - These are the moments I'm OK with moving to PA.

Next time we are in the same place at the same time, I will give you a hair braid lesson.... Oh how i love braids! If I could I would grow out the boys hair and go to town.... but Phil thinks that would be a little much...

This heat is killin me. We can't even go for early morning walks anymore or really go out anywhere in the afternoon because the car gets too hot if we leave it parked anywhere...gotta love Texas!

Rachel in swimming lessons would never work. She's always off in space... And your husband and hairdos sounds like our house. Rick used to remind me to do Rachel's hair because I would just brush it. Seriously challenged here too.

The heat is bad! Our pool was 96 degrees the past couple of days...that is a hot tub! ugh!

Hope she continues to improve every day! Chloe did so much better in those 2 week camps than she did in the once a week thing!

We'd love to have you all over to swim this summer. Let me know what your summer schedule is like!

1 - You know how you see girls in pigtails with a perfect part down the back of their head? Next time, stop and compliment their momma. Because that is HARD. And if you are like you and me, pretty much impossible to accomplish.

2 - My 3 just started private swim lessons and have learned more in three lessons...wish I had done it earlier.

3 - I really want a color roll. I wonder if my girls would actually be trained to be organized.
