This is a little of what we’ve been up to this summer.
Spencer helped Dallas mow the lawn:
I enrolled the girls in a summer class through the city. They did science experiments and loved it. Brooke won some candy for her cup/boat which held the most marbles and was so proud of herself:
I figured Spencer would want to go to a class of his own so he wouldn’t feel left out. I signed him up for a tot sports class. He was…not interested in the class. Instead he preferred to pass his time doing this:
Should I be worried? Because I am.
We have eaten a million Otter Pops:
Somehow this happened and both girls were completely satisfied with the arrangement:
The big girls took swim lessons. Brooke, and indeed most of the kids, LOVED the lessons:
Caroline on the other hand…
It took her some time to warm up to the idea of swim lessons.
Brooke after the first lesson:
However, by the end she had become so much more comfortable in the water and was actually enjoying herself. Hooray for progress!
After the fiasco of the summer community classes, I didn’t dare sign Spencer up for swim lessons. He was more than happy to play on the iPad the whole time:
Madison was a little busybody and ran around all over the place. Luckily the pool had a little park right by it that we could play on:
Madison is not a fan of grass touching her skin:
We saw “The Little Mermaid” at the Hale Theatre. We loved it! Caroline wouldn’t take a picture with me so I had to borrow my niece, Emma:
Perhaps Caroline was just hungry. We went to Chili’s after and Caroline ate a bazillion pieces of pizza:
My aunt and uncle came to visit. Here’s my cute cousin Hailey who just graduated from high school:
Sweet Caroline turned 6! She was certain she’d lose her first tooth on her birthday. It didn’t happen.
Caroline wanted a repeat cake, so I made the Dora-head cake again:
We visited my parents who were selling hot dogs during Bountiful’s handcart days:
Nice photobomb, Brooke.
We’ve loved the splash pad:
We had our ward variety show. Brooke showed off her stop motions again and drew a crowd:
After much hesitation and debate, I began giving Brooke piano lessons:
So far she’s doing well and is happy to practice a little each day. Is is too much to ask for this to continue forever?
