Christmas in July

Ok, I guess it's really Christmas in June!  We got our school supplies for next year!  It's always so exciting to get those big boxes on our doorstep and see what is inside!  Jenessa was ready to start right away...Kessiah....not so much!  It will be nice to have some time to look at the materials before school starts.

Lazy Days of Summer

We have nothing on the calendar today (except for Ryan's softball game tonight)

I haven't seen Kessiah or Jenessa in hours...they are in the fort reading.  They both get so excited about the summer reading program at the library...I love having kids who love to read!  Jenessa is currently reading the Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew books and Kessiah is reading the Encyclopedia Brown series.

Sienna and Logan are outside in the kiddie pool...although they have been in the house with me a lot this morning as well.

Potty training Logan isn't going so is going to have to be on his terms!  No surprise there!

We went to swimming lessons yesterday afternoon.  I played in the kiddie pool with Logan and Mason during lessons.  Mason loved splashing in the water and Logan had a good time too.  Sienna was proud of herself for blowing bubbles and putting her head under the water.  Hopefully, we can spend some more time in a pool this summer so the big girls can improve their swimming skills.

Memorial Day Weekend

Ryan had a couple of furlough days that he had to use before mid-June, so we decided to head north for a long weekend.  It was nice to get away.  I'm grateful to have such a patient husband...because, let's face it...2 year old boys are not meant to be strapped into a car seat for 8 hours a day!  On Saturday, we went to Orangeville and the cemetary and I was able to see several people I hadn't seen in awhile.  On Sunday, we went to the Richfield cemetary.  The girls had fun in Richfield with Emily, Marissa and Charlotte.  Ryan even dug a fire pit in my parent's backyard so we could have a cook-out.  Jenessa was especially excited about the cook-out and was very upset when we had to postpone it for a day because of the wind!
