back on the road...
In other news, Caillou is in summer school two days a week, Caillou and Jasper will both be in preschool together in September, Ollie is learning to say new words, uh-oh, wow, and tries to say peek-a-boo. I got the boys a wading pool, they are having so much fun with it, and my neighbor found a turtle sand box for Ollie which we fill with water and bath toys for him. I am spending lots of time with my mama, we went to target yesterday and she got us some super cute lemonade stand supplies, we are going to have a lemonade stand with our good friends next door. Tomorrow night we may go to the drive in with them too! The dance studio I teach for is having it's dance recital on saturday, that will be a very long day.
We went to the library today, and there was a wild animal show there, the boys pet a very large snake, saw a sloth, a prairie dog, a centipede, a european legless lizard, and a hissing cockroach. We joined the summer reading program, when the boys complete a certain amount of reading, the go in a get a prize. This will give this mama some oomph and motivation to do more reading with them. I used to be so good about reading to them, and lately I have been too tired at the end of the day for it. We checked out quite a few books today, and are also reading from our vintage childrens dictionary, trying to do a letter each night. The pictures are so sweet and the colors so charming. I love old books.
Well that is about it for now, my goal is to start bringing my camera with me everyday, and document our days in pictures and have somewhat of a picture diary for the summertime. Now if only I can remember to bring the camera. Well to anybody out there who still reads this deserted blog, I hope you all are having a good summer!
