We are also focusing on academics because this is going to be one of the longest summers we have ever had (yay!) but we must keep plugging along on reading for all and math especially for David. David's reading is awesome, but he really struggles in math. Hope is by far our most eager learner and she wants to "do her wetters" (letters) often!
He love that squirter thing on top...
Hope is definitely a fish and loves the water. She and Kyle were on that thing almost four hours yesterday!!! David did not make it nearly that long, but he looks cool in his big floppy hat! He did not want to wear it, until Kyle told him he looked like Captain Pirate off of the Misfit Pirate movie we had just seen the day before.
After some fun in the sun, we had a BALL playing with spray glitter hair spray and color boost. We are preparing for a tiny little princess party for a few of Hope's friends next week. We bought supplies for the party and then had such fun experimenting with them! Can you see the pink in Hope's hair and all that glitter?
Ashley was soooo patient and allowed my chidlren free reign with the glitter spray and pink in her hair! They had such fun! We laughed and laughed as everything was eventually covered in glitter.
This is a better shot of Hope's pink and glitter hair!
We ended the evening at the ballfield watching Kyle play a game. Kyle was blessed to have a cheering section of Jason, Ashley, Jonas, and Sheila! David had such fun playing with some sweet classmates, and then he got a game going with Jason and Jonas. This game was probably more interesting than Kyle's! Kyle did not pitch and his team won by the slaughter rule.
I love this picture that Ashley took of the boys playing ball with the stadium lights in the background.
We are ready for a fun and relaxed holiday weekend. We are in cleaning mode around here because next weekend we are having a huge neighborhood yard sale with some friends. Our house is way too full of stuff and it is time to clean out! We have some fun plans tonight and we have a long "to do" list for our house. After sitting in the hospital all winter we are actually enjoying working outside. We even have a small garden with some veggies growing! Happy Memorial Weekend!
