Almost Over?

It is officially summer, and the kids think it is a holiday. They think we have to have an activity everyday of I start to hear, “I’m board, there’s nothing to do.” Here are a few of our happenings so far this summer. In-between the swimming lessons which have really started to pay off, the kids have become increasingly better swimmers, we have stayed busy. Irrigation continues to be one of the kid’s favorite bi-weekly events. They feel very cheated if irrigation gets scheduled in the middle of the night. We are half way through summer movies, which have brought many smiles and provided the kids with many new quotable lines to rehearse with mom and dad. A few visits to the zoo proved fun until our every comfortable weather officially melted all of us sending everyone back to the pool. We have been to the cabin twice and have a few more visits scheduled before all is said and done. The monsoons have provided manageable weather and allowed us to teach the kids the game of hopscotch; this has become an afternoon favorite as the monsoons continue. Overall it has been a wonderful summer and we have much more to fit in before the bell rings us back to school in only 28 days!

Irrigation is one of the kids favorites!

The kids love the Zoo.


Hopscotch has become an afternoon monsoon tradition, Dane thinks they just like drawing on the sidewalk

We found a little snake, Dane would not touch it, he had a neighbor boy come over to kill it.

What a fun busy summer you have been having. Heading to the cabin seems like a great way to beat the stinkin heat. Smart move:) I would have got the neighbor kid too. I do not do snakes!!
