Nate and Drew love the feel of their room now ~ instead of a bunk bed they each have a twin bed on opposite sides of the room. There is one dresser for the two of them to share and one lamp. No clutter, nothing on the walls and only 3 hangers in the closet for each of them. I informed them that we could keep that simple feeling to their new bedrooms by not unpacking all their "stuff" when it does arrive. We'll see how that goes when the time comes.
In other news, the boys swam their last regular swim meet of the season this past Saturday. They did well considering our base pool has been closed on and off for the last 6 months. Scott was busy also this past weekend. He joined his dental group buddies for Guam's Annual Perimeter Relay Run. It was a 48 mile run with individual legs ranging from 1.8 miles to almost 5 miles. Scott and his other 9 teammates each ran 2 legs of the race. Scott's first leg began at 4:30am and his second leg was over in time for him to race over (by car) to the pool by 10:30am to watch the boys swim a couple of their events. Scott's team did very well ~ coming in 12th place out of 40-some teams. Kudos to you, Scott, for getting up and out there and running a good run!
Lily is talking up a storm now. She has been putting more and more words together each day. She is a very busy girl: taking her babies for walks in the stroller; singing her ABC's and Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star; watching Little People movies over and over and over; and answering ALMOST all questions with "I don't know". She loves to play with the neighbor girls during the day and watch tv at night with all the lights off. She is jealous when I give the boys hugs or kisses and she still loves to be held like a baby. I can't believe it's been 9 months since Lily has been with us. We only have 55 days left on the island and if all goes well our family will get to meet Lily before we reach the "1 year with us" Lilymei Day on July 27th! How crazy is that?
