Gracie is not growing as fast of Logan. She is 34” tall and weighs 26 pounds. Her personality is growing daily. She is very determined and knows what she wants. Her imagination is large. She loves to play “short order cook.” She will ask us “what you want guys?” We will respond with a food or drink item. She includes anyone who is talking or standing with us. They are surprised when she remembers what they ordered.
We are also amazed with the words and sentences that come out of her mouth. She is speaking in 5-7 word sentences and we have to remind ourselves she is only 2.
We were able to take a few trips this summer. We went to Santa Claus,IN to camp and go to Holiday World amusement park. Gracie was able to ride a few rides and enjoy the water park as long as water did not get in her eyes(good luck on that one.) Logan brought a friend (Levi) and managed to ride a few roller coasters. This is the first year Logan was away from us for an extended time. He went to 4-H camp for 4 nights and 5 days. He really enjoyed it and is ready for next year. I did better than I thought I would, Gracie kept me busy. He only lost 3 shirts, 1 pair of shorts and a towel. We saw a St. Louis Cardinal game and a Cincinnati Reds game. We went canoeing and visited Andy and Sandra Reynolds in Kentucky. Andy is an old Marine Corps buddy of Jeff’s. We had a blast. The kids were introduced to country living. They sat on one of Andy’s horses and saw a horse show. We can’t wait to visit again. We are keeping busy now watching Logan’s football games and the local High School football games. Gracie is enjoying watching the cheerleaders and has decided to be a cheerleader for Halloween. We hope everyone enjoyed the summer and look forward to the fall.
