IMG_1432And just like that it has been four weeks since I’ve last posted!  The summer seems to be flying by.  It’s been another busy month at our household.  Charlotte and Molly had two weeks of swim lessons again and they were more excited than last year.  They both had a great time and are getting noticeably better and more comfortable in the water.  We are excited that they aren’t fighting us anymore and are already looking forward to the next lessons.

Grandma Elske is recovering nicely from hip surgery and is looking forward to hopefully watching the girls again next month.  Now Grandpa Elske will be going in for a knee replacement at the end of August, so it is never a dull day here!  Charlotte and Molly are still really enjoying Grandma and Grandpa Wags watching them a few days a week and Broadway is as happy as the girls are!

We had a small family party at our house last Sunday and had a very special guest.  Erin was in Minnesota over the weekend for her brother’s wedding and she decided she wanted to come see us, meet more of the family and see what Wisconsin living was all about!  We loved having her around for the day and the girls were thrilled with seeing her again so soon.  Amy and the grandparents worked hard to give Erin a true Wisconsin party, complete with WI beer brats, German potato salad, corn on the cob, local cheeses, and schaum torte (and dirt cake for the kids) for dessert.

We will be participating in the Make-A-Wish walk again this year on September 22nd.  Please visit our team site to make a donation or join our team!

  1. It was SO wonderful to finally meet Erin! She is just as sweet as I thought she would be and fit right in to the family…even “holding her own” while talking to Gpa Elske! 🙂 Thanks for hosting. We look forward to many future visits! Welcome to the family Erin!

  2. What a great family photo! I’m sure Grandpa Elske just wants to make sure he gets his fair share of attention! Hope his is as successful as Grandma’s was and he heals quickly!

  3. What a fantastic family photo!!!
