Maggie started growing like a weed in July. She also started sleeping through the night around the beginning of August. Amen.
Maggie got an ewok from my friend Brad (and Will was scared of it).
We made a trip to Greenville, SC to visit Brian's sisters and the cousins.
We got to see Gracie and Mimi swim while there. Those girls are so good and so fun to watch. Kelly and I got a little into it and made the Greenville paper!
When we made it back home, the kids almost slept all day.
Then August rolled around and we tried to cram as much in before school started as possible...Maggie started playing more, we went blueberry picking (and Will ate his weight in blueberries), we had more tomatoes than we knew what to do with, and Will's tractor got its last few rides on campus before the students got back.
Before school started, we began a bathroom renovation. Not a total gut since we had already tiled the floor and were keeping the original tub, but we wanted an exhaust fan, shower tile, new fixtures, a new vanity, paint, shelves...and I'm sort of dead set on incorporating some shiplap (Brian keeps reminding me that my last name is Webb, not Gaines). AND potty training began on the day we started the reno...not my finest idea!
Potty training was terrible. We did the cold turkey method. At the end of day four, I called my mom and said we were waving the white flag. The next morning Will woke up and said, "Mama, me haffa go potty!" Well alright!!! Later, after potty training was deemed successful, I caught Will trying to use the bathroom in the middle of the living room 😏
