Grace’s volleyball camp:
My friend organized this neighborhood progressive play-date. These girls (plus a lot more…I think there were 18 of them all together).They made breakfast at one house, made bracelets at another, played games at another, and lunch at another.
At our house we did nails and swimming.
I have taken over the dining table for my house work.
That’s where I stay up all night trying to figure out cabinet configurations lately.
And this is where we have spent the majority of our summer.
…and here too:
Dave’s sister and a friend came for dinner and to visit. These kids always love seeing Carol Lynn.
I ran into my old high school friend at Target:
Grace and her friend threw a surprise party for their friend.It made her day.
Grace took off for her first Girls’ Camp:
And Elle left the day after since she had to be at summer school:
While they were gone these girls and I hung.
And visited the Apple Store to fix my computer which has been a pretty big ordeal I tell you.
And Max worked his little heart out at the new house (back here).
Then the big girls came home refreshed and spiritually rejuvenated.
And exhausted and dirty and happy as can be.
My patriotic teaching-singing partner in church:She sure makes my job fun.
Now we are here:
Soaking up love from cousins in my happy place.
Such a fun and busy summer! I love the idea of a progressive play date–my kids would love something like that!
Are you working on the same house you bought here (https://71toes.com/2012/02/we-bought-house.html) ?
It's great to get all these updates on your summer 🙂 I'm excited to hear how it was at bear lake and when you are moving? This house building project looks like a it's going to be a long process!
Greetings from Germany, Jasmin
Looks like a fun summer so far! Are you at eyrealm?? i love those posts!!
Love the post. 🙂 I'm wondering when a good age is to start letting my kids do real chores. They are all pretty little and I'm not sure how to break in to them doing more around the house. Any tips?
So are you guys building a house or remodeling the one you posted about a long time ago? It looks like you're doing a new construction?
I am also wondering the same thing, is this house project the one you bought a while back or a new construction? What a huge job. So many decisions. Good luck!
I love the Girls Camp theme, shirts, logo. Can you put me in touch with the camp director or send a link for where information about their camp and theme may be posted. shaunahh at gmail dot com
Love how Lucy coordinates her bathing suit with her vacuuming. Love the bucket list. Love your pool. Perhaps I should buy your house and move across country for that. LOL.
LOVE the progressive play date idea!!! Thanks again, for just being the inspiration you and your family are.
Ha, is that Heather Torriente? She is my good friend and such a hoot:)
