I love summers. This is my fourth summer that I have not had to work, since I started working at 16. However, this is the first summer where I am not working and still making a big girl paycheck. I was a teacher last year, but because of my lack of paid time off, I lost a lot of pay being gone on maternity leave. This is the first summer that I can relax and not feel bad about it. I am bringing in the same paycheck that I brought in all year and I get to hang out with my little man all summer.
We've been having a blast. I've been working out with a friend at the YMCA. We've been doing a 45 minute step class on Monday, Wednesdays, and Fridays and a water aerobics class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It feels good to be working out, I just have to get my eating under control so that I can lose some weight. While I am working out, Jordan has been going to child watch, which he has enjoyed (with the exception of last Friday when he cried).
Besides the Y, Jordan and I have spent some time in his pool. We've all gone to my MIL's lake house on the weekends and swam in her lake and gone out on the pontoon boat. Mike and I also have Jordan in music class and swim class right now. He loves them both.

My boy is looking so grown up. Last week we spent a few hours with my dad. He gave Jordan his first all around haircut. Mike cut some long locks off a month or so ago, but this haircut was all over. He no longer has a mullet. ;)
I'll leave with this picture of my little boy. No longer my little baby. Although I'll always call him my baby.
I can't believe how big he has gotten. :.(
