Summer is officially over for us here in the Weed household( Griffin started back today). Sad I know.....and yes way to early!
I thought I would share all of the fun we had over the summer. I tried to keep the kids busy so they did not have too much down time to watch TV or play an electronic. I think I ended up keeping myself the busiest.
I already posted about our travels so this will just be our near home activities.
We attended events at our local library.
This was the Summer reading kickoff party. They had clowns making balloon shapes, face painting and prizes. The girls received their reading charts. I was very impressed with the prizes given for reading. They ended up receiving free Dairy Queen ice cream, free kids meal at Applebee's, Fatz and Stevie Bs.
We went to the planetarium.
We went swimming at least once or twice each week.
Ella had received paints as a present a while back so we finally decided to use them!
I still have plenty to share but I don't want to make this post too long( I also keep having a member of my familyneeding me every 2 seconds).
The girl's started school last Wednesday( way too early!). Laney has been waiting to go to school since last year. She was so excited that she was up way before mom......5:00??????. Of course, she did not want her sister to be late so she woke her up too! Crazy! I guess they needed 3 1/2 hours to prepare.
Laney's first day of 5th Grade!
Ella was excited but a little nervous. This was her first time going to a school without her mom. Don't worry mom will be up at the school a lot volunteering!
Ella's first day of 1st Grade!
As I walked out of the school, I had to hold back the tears.
Thank goodness Griffin was there to hold my hand......okay not really.... but the conversation was helpful.
When I picked them both up from school, they were all smiles!
I am a Christian wife to an amazing husband and a mother to three wonderful children. I enjoy baking, crafts, the high of clipping coupons and saving money, brisk walks in the evening and my new favorite sipping on a tall glass of iced coffee(mainly so I can accomplish all the favorites above). My life is busy but I wouldn't have it any other way!
