Sunday and Monday

Your dad pointed out that the previous post on your blog was a bit...abbreviated.  So I'm hoping to remedy that with this post a little bit.  At least make the post longer than a paragraph.

This entry covers yesterday and today, just because I was a slacker and didn't get around to doing entries yesterday for any of you.  So, yesterday we moved the pool outside and filled it up with water. You, Jared and Kaitlyn could hardly wait to jump right in (which you did as it filled).  After some quality time splashing around, we hit the road to wind everyone down, going out for a car ride.

Dinner and then bedtime!  You got to read a bit before bed, which you are getting better and better at, and with a bit more confidence.

Onto today, Monday.  You got to go swimming TWICE (once with Daddy around lunch, and again once the girls were back in the afternoon).  We also set up the slip-n-slide...sort of.  It needs to be inflated a bit more, but it didn't seem to phase you guys.  You got to binge watch quite a few shows as well...I guess you're just getting into the swing of things with summer vacation.

Well, tomorrow should be fun...planning on going to a movie!  Happy Monday!

Here's the second day in a row blogging!  It was a pretty typical Saturday, consisting of a trip to Target for a swimsuit (you picked out a minions one...although you were more interested in watching a video than you were in picking out a character suit) and then a drive up South Mountain again.

I know it's only a paragraph long, but I guess the weekends aren't really super eventful sometimes!  Hopefully next week we'll have some fun things planned!

All Done with 2nd Grade!

As of yesterday, you officially completed the 2nd grade, and are moving on to 3rd grade!

So much has happened since last blog post (and, as I mentioned with your siblings posts...I'll catch up later!).  Since the last one, you turned 5, started kindergarten, had a baby sister born, finished kindergarten, started first grade, finished first grade, started second grade, had ANOTHER baby sister, and so on.  We've also moved to a new house, you've gotten to fly several places, gone on a few road trips, been in a wedding as a ring-bearer and sooooooo much more.  It will be a very exciting summer!

You've grown SO much, even in the past year and even in the past few months.  You are almost up to my shoulders in height.  Yikes!  You are getting so much better at reading, and a lot more confident too.  You went the entire year without a trip to the principal's office (yay!), and you have been such a big help at home too.  Also in school, math is DEFINITELY your best subject (Mommy is secretly or not so secretly happy about that...hehehe), and you have even started showing an interest in science.  Yay!

In any case, we're really looking forward to the summer!  Swimming lessons are next on the agenda for you and Jared, and after that we're going on our road trip vacation for two weeks!  Happy summer vacation!!!
