Weekly update

We had a brief summer last week! It was sunny and nice and we played outside. And today, it’s back to cloudy and we can’t go outside because wasps have taken over our backyard and I can’t tell where they’re coming from… anyone have tips on getting rid of them? At least it’s warmer now!

We had a fun trip to a park downtown to picnic with some of the preschool kids. CareBear and LiliBee were explorers for awhile and AliBoo enjoyed the warm weather. Our other preschool trip for the week was to the Kid’s Expo at Bill’s Fishin’ Hole. It was apparently the first year for it so turnout was a little on the slow side, but the kids had a great time fishing (those were very hungry fish so there was lots of catching going on). They were also able to make picture frames out of popsicle sticks and hand feed some of the trout. CareBear decided she didn’t like the floppy fish and so LiliBee has been obsessed with that ever since… even though they haven’t been floppy for a couple of days now! We had a wonderful trout dinner last night cooked by Chris.

CareBear had her first dance class on Saturday. She was very excited to wear her new outfit and could hardly contain herself waiting for the class to start. It was very cute watching all of the 3-4 year olds learning how to curtsy and plie. Meanwhile, LiliBee had fun in gymnastics doing obstacle courses and getting Chris to jump into the foam pit with her. Not a bad way to spend a morning!

The rest of our week was pretty boring with the usual shopping and errands. We’re getting the hang of our summer (school-free) schedule. The kids have been enjoying the change of pace, I think.

This week should be fun. I’m not sure what we’ll be doing, but there are play dates, sleep overs and fireworks watching in the works! It will also be Lucy’s worst week of the year. She really hates firecrackers so she’ll spend most of her time cowering behind the claw foot tub in the bathroom. I just hope the weather gets better and the wasps go away!
