The kids are starting school up again in a few weeks, which I guess means Summer is almost over. Lucky for us we don't have school... or work so we still have Summer as long as the sun is shining. Here are a few photos; really they're just from one day. We went to Liberty Park to play in the rivers and then we went bowling. It basically sums up our summer though. We've done a lot of water activities because Ava-Kate is a little fishy! She loves playing in the water. Little splash pools, sprinklers, you name it she'll somehow swim in it. It's almost her 2nd birthday, I can't believe it; she's growing up so much and is starting to talk quite a bit lately, both english and spanish which is really fun to hear. It's crazy how much spanish she understands and even tries to speak. I still don't understand how she can learn two languages at the same time, but she is! Hopefully I'll post a little more frequently as things tend to slow down with the coming of fall.
I’m Tara Carpenter. I am a health coach for Take Shape for Life. I am married with two beautiful children. After I had my first child it took 6 months of hard work to loose the “baby weight” and I was still over weight. While pregnant with my second child I gained 50 lbs, some of that was “baby” but a lot of it was bad habits, over-eating, and a sedentary life-style. One month after my baby was born I went on the Take Shape for Life program. At my follow-up appointment with my doctor I was 9 lbs lighter than pre-pregnancy. Two months later I had lost 25 pounds. I’m still on my weight loss journey but I wanted to help others achieve similar results. Thanks for visiting my blog for tips to savor the moments in life.
