Meredith's preschool class has been such a blessing this year, and its hard to believe how much she has learned, like nursery rhymes and songs; but also all the friends that she has made and the confidence she has gained by interacting with different teachers and classmates. We are going to miss Ms. Cindy and Ms. Laura! It's been a GREAT year!

As you can see, Russ gets into EVERYTHING! He is a total daredevil, and is not afraid of too much. I guess this hasn't changed too much in the past 6 months, but the intensity of things continues to amaze me!
Apart from making mommy's hair go grey, he is a great kid. He loves to play outside, and loves to help out with the chores inside and out. Mowing the lawn, vacuuming the floor, and sweeping the floor are some of his favorites. Russ' vocabulary has exploded, and he is able to tell us what he wants. However, he really would prefer to just do it himself (most days he'll open the fridge, move a chair over, and get the turkey in about 10 seconds).
Russ is also fast -- the Lipsey clan usually takes an evening walk after dinner. We will stop at one of the neighborhood parks, and once you let Russ out of the stroller he is off! Russ also continues to like to read books, watch Mickey and Sesame Street, and just general kid stuff.
I have been impressed with the things he mimics, compared to Meredith. He loves to tell us that "Russ starts with R" and "I was the line leader today at school," just like big sister will tell us about her day.
Oh, and the boy loves his vanilla ice cream -- but only with sprinkles:)

Meredith also LOVES her bicycle. Our sweet friend Emma is a few years older than Meredith, and gave her very first bike to Meredith to try last fall when she got her "big girl" bike. Over the winter, Meredith's little legs have grown and now she is a bicycle champ! Her favorite thing to do is to ride around in circles in the garage. I get dizzy just watching her, but she loves it.
Meredith has grown to adore her preschool class, and its gonna be hard to be out all summer! She has learned so much in her classes, and is a totally different girl than the girl I dropped off last August. Some of her favorite things from school are her Spanish songs, the many art projects she has done, and of course her sweet friends.

Russ has kept us on our toes again this month. To get him used to the potty, we started taking him in the morning and night, and of course we would praise him if he performed. Well, apparently all that practice of taking off the diaper and using the toilet had made Russ think that he should take off his diaper in his crib, and pee through the crib slots onto the floor (or in the crib was fine, too). So, now we are duck taping the boy into his diaper, and thankfully with the cooler weather he is back to warm footed PJs at night. Ah...he's a mess :)

I am seizing this late night insomnia to update you on the life and times of the Lipseys. We have had a fabulous month, and are looking forward to all things Fall that are headed our way.

Oh, and if you need a Razorback Football rolodex of information -- Chris is your man!
