We are in the throes of our summer schedule now. Charles was gone Monday and Tuesday of this week to do training to be a counselor at our church's sports summer camp. This is his second year as a CIT (Counselor in Training), meaning he's a volunteer and can't get paid because he's only 14. Other than that busyness, we had time to go to a summer movie, hang out at the pool, and sleep late this week, as well as getting a little schoolwork accomplished.
The girls had their best buddies over last weekend. There was lots of fun going on- including some cupcake baking.
$1 summer movies began in our local theater this week. Every week on Tuesday and Wednesday there are two different older movies shown for $1. We always try to catch as many as we can throughout the summer because usually going to the movies is very expensive for a family of six. This Wednesday's movie was the new Annie. The girls had seen it, but Charles and I had not. I really enjoyed it- although there were differences from the original.
Swimming at the Y began in earnest this week. This is a favorite summer pastime and one we take full advantage of. I don't swim until the water is really warm. My fun is sitting on the side and reading.
We did do some school this week as well as some crafting. This is a fork art fireworks painting. She used a plastic fork to make the fireworks streaks.
And a bonus cute dog picture of the week: she's so patient with them.
Things have been kind of quiet here yesterday and today. Charles and Jason are gone for the weekend- visiting and amusement park with Jason's brother and family. The girls and I are alone. Ashlyne and Rachel took the opportunity to make a whole list of fun things they wanted to do yesterday. They picnicked for lunch. They had a spa day in the bathroom. They did some playing. And, at the end of the day they wrote and performed a play- Lost in Candy Land.
Today is also quiet with the guys gone. I think the girls and I will head out to our local nature museum. I'm not sure I like the constant quiet!
