I finally hooked my camera up to my computer again, and found SO MANY photos that I wanted to share! I don't have time to show them all, so I thought I'd share just a quick summary of the last month or so.
These two kiddos wrapped up another year of school!
(For those of you paying very close attention, those are glasses frames you see on her face, but no lenses in them. They were a favor from a friend's birthday party, and she wore them nearly every day for about two weeks.)
Compare to the same time last year....
Also on the last day of school, this little girl had a dance recital.
I also finally gave in to letting this little girl loose with some paints - thanks to her Daddy's encouragement. She didn't make a mess like I feared, and really enjoyed the process.
Also, when I wasn't looking, she turned five. We had a sweet little tea party at home with some friends, and I really enjoyed the smaller celebration. I also loved all of the 'tea party food' that we served - and I think she enjoyed most of it, too!
Although we had planned to picnic at a local park on the 4th of July and watch fireworks the that evening, our picnic got rained out. We changed our plans to a back porch picnic, then a den floor picnic due to the rain, but did end up getting to see the fireworks.
We're spending our summer days playing outside, cooking (because I'm serving a lot more meals now that I'm not packing lunches), and spending time with friends and family. I also recently wrapped up my part-time, work-from-home job, so I'm hoping to add a few more things into our days - library visits, blueberry-picking, and other fun summer activities.
How are you spending your summer? Can you believe how fast it flies by?
