Basically we have learned that when you live in Texas... You MUST have a pool! I know you all are gonna be so jealous of our pool but "Hey what can I say" ... We have to make the best out of it! We have managed to be able and have two floaty mattresses in it at once so Ryan and I can sunbathe... Unfortunately once you do that there's not much room for the kiddos to swim! We wonder if our neighbors think we are crazy being in our pool like we think it's a real pool! We feel goofy but we have enjoyed it! Eli has asked if we can have a pool party also like the last two we have been for school and baseball but the difference is they have "Real" pools and well I don't think we could fit 15 kiddos in ours! I guess I have to look at the bright side that Eli doesn't see the difference! :) I will enjoy those days while I can! So there you have it... The Ritter's version of a pool! :) (for now anyway)
Oh and by the way did I mention that Ryan forgot to put sunscreen on and came out looking like a pink lobster! He is trying to get rid of his t-shirt tan! ;)
Nothing too exciting these days other than having a lot of lazy days! We miss you all!
Ok... so we won't go through every tooth lost but I figured since these are the very first one's I might as well post them! He actually lost this one a week after the first one it is just taken me that long to get here! We were out to breakfast and he was complaining that it was hard to eat and well it popped out right then! :)
Yesterday was Eli's last day of school in kindergarten and he claims he is now a 1st Grader! He is pretty proud of himself! We are very proud of him too because in February he wasn't reading AT ALL! 5 months later he is reading like crazy! He has been reading books for the 2nd grade level! He is my Mr. Smarty Pants! We are excited for it to be summertime because it means we are that much closer to coming home for our vacation! The countdown is on... August 5th! Not much exciting has been going on around here... just surviving the 90 degree weather we have had for the last two weeks minus 1 day in the 60's (quick little storm). The heat hasn't worn out it's welcome yet but from what I hear August is the month usually everyone starts to get a little sick of it! Fortunate for us we are going to be visiting back home for the month of August so we will get to escape the heat! :) Well it is time to go... so until next time! Love you All!
My life is made up of a wonderful husband and two beautiful boys that we created together. In different ways they have all inspired me to be a better wife, mommy and person.
I started this blog as a way to share our "little" adventures with our friends & family that exactly one year ago we packed up & moved half way across the country from. It has been a roller coaster of emotions since then but it has also taught me so much about "being thankful" for the little things and not taking life for granted.
