Summer Vacation, Day 1

Yesterday was the first day of summer break for the boys. Wow, are they used to being kept busy! I had my hands full keeping them occupied nicely.

They started the day wanting to play school and got out the worksheets their teachers sent home. They played outside a few times, we got out the big bubble wands for awhile. We filled the bird feeder again. Got them showered and dressed and had lunch with daddy.

Sean had about a 50% success rate with the potty. They played Captain Underpants for a bit.

We danced to Youtube videos. We read books. They watched Scooby Doo and let Ella take a nap. More playing outside while I made dinner. Ella fell asleep in her highchair after eating Goldfish.

We watched the bird feeder bandit and a few birds got to eat also.

Finally daddy got home after working late and we got to have our dinner. I left Doug in charge of kitchen clean up while I went to clean out our van. OMG, that really needs to happen more than once every 9 months! It took forever to get all the playground rocks from the school year out.

Today we are eagerly awaiting Nana's arrival. She is spending the weekend with us to help with the kids while Doug and I get going on the bathroom remodel! Yay!!
