We are at the end of week 2 of summer vacation. Here I thought summer would be slow and lazy, yet both weeks have been busier than I anticipated.
Last week my brother and his boys were in town so we spent a lot of time with them. David and his cousin, Micah, are only 9 months apart and they don't get to see each other much. Understandably, they make the most of the time they have. There was a lot of running, swimming, ball playing and pretend gun shooting in our neck of the woods that week. They were both very sad to have to leave each other. Later in the summer the boys get to be together for a whole week at a local Bible day camp. David is already counting down the days.
Last week we also got to celebrate David leaving Tiger Cubs behind and becoming a Wolf Cub.
This week the kids participated in our church's VBS program. We hold VBS at night, so we still had our days to play. However, since VBS goes pretty late (in bed at 9:30), David learned how to sleep in a little bit.
Also this week, Julie started swimming with our local summer swim team. It's her first time swimming in a (semi) competitive environment and it takes some getting used to. While she does LOVE to swim, she's used to just jumping in the pool and playing, not swimming laps. I think she is getting used to it and enjoying it. She is a little apprehensive about her first swim meet next week (I'll make sure to get pictures for you) but I think she'll be just fine.
Coming up in June...
Cub Scout day camp for David
Vacation for all
And the all important birthdays for the kids - the time when Mommy reflects on how old she is getting because her children are getting so old.
Hope you're having a great summer!
What is the most exciting thing you have going on this month?
