Edit: I almost forgot the "When is Summer Break over?" question is now up to 11 times since school has been out.
I finally have a couple pictures of the kitchen for those of you that have yet to see it, I tried to clean up as much as the kids would allow:

Her big brother better watch out because when she starts chasing him it will be trouble. There is a negative side to this, as she begins walking more and more she has stopped cleaning the floors. While crawling she would pick up everything and try to put it in her mouth, even after a freshly swept room she would find stuff and dart right for it. Now with the walking she doesn't see as concerned with the stuff on the floor, just more the stuff that she can't reach on tables and shelves.
On to other things, the best time of the day for the Girl is the Night-night train. We started this with the Boy which made bed time a lot easier but he has since stopped wanting to do it, however the the Girl loves it. When we get her PJs on she is already excited, then I give out the call "Allllll Aboard!" and she practically jumps out of her PJs. I guess since her brother is so much into trains she doesn't have much of a chance, but she loves the night-night train every night.
As for the count on the number of times I have been asked if Summer break is over yet, it is now up to two. Hopefully this will subside soon as I just may drop him off at school for a couple hours.

On the third day of summer break my son said something to me that was good and bad all in one short question:
"Daddy, is summer break over yet I want to go to school?"
I was grateful that he likes school so much as most of my time in school I was trying to get out of school, but at the same time I thought it is going to be a long summer. Soon we will have our little pool setup, we will make trips to the zoo, we have a vacation planned, we have some camps for him to go to, so it will be ok it is just the current adjustment period of not having it. I am interested to see what happens at the beginning of the school year to see how he reacts this time.

The Boy: "DAMN!"
Daddy: What did he say?
Mommy: He said "Bam."
Daddy: Are you sure? Boy, what did you say?
The Boy: DAMN!
Daddy: that is a bad word, you do not say that. Where did you learn that from?
The Boy: My Friend from school.
Well at least he won't learn anything else from his friend as it is summer break.
The Girl is getting more daring with the walking. She has taken a few steps now and then but not much more but I think she will be flying around this house with her brother in not time. Today she opened the gate, granted we haven't locked it until today because she mostly left it alone, once she was through it was like lightening as she was trying to get away as quickly as possible.
I got to golf an actual round of golf for the first time in about 4 years. I have played in scrambles and the like usually twice a year since the Boy was born, but this was actual golf except the way I played. I am really glad they sell golf balls in dozens or else it would have been a short round. I just can't wait to get out there again.
