The kids finished up school for the year. We went to their end of the year dance festival. They all did great.
Lucky got into it as well.August 24, 2016. A picture of Jr. Jr. on his first day of school is on my post from September 6, 2016.
We celebrated my birthday. Jeremy even sent me out for some alone time on my birthday while he worked on dinner. I went to a park, sat down to read a book and eat my lunch and got to talk to my mom on the phone. It was relaxing to have quiet time in the shade while listening to the birds around.
Happy Birthday to You! or Me!
Since school's been out, we've had family time at home.
Nichole: Jr., your caterpillar has flown the coop.
Jr.: It's not my caterpillar. It's nature's.
Well, we enjoyed our nature time. We tried out something a friend suggested for camping. S'mores in a waffle cone. You take chocolate chips and mini marshmallows, stuff them in a wafflecone, wrap it in foil, and put it on the fire or on the grill or whatever. Some of us had peanuts/peanut butter in ours. Yumm. Warms it up nicely.
And of course there were plenty of birds to listen to. Gorgeous. And sometimes they even let us see them and get pictures.
The robins certainly let us take pictures.
Before we left home, Jr. Jr. brought me a present he forgot to give me on Mother's Day. A necklace he made at school. What a sweetheart.
So now you know why I'm too exhausted to blog so often. We're too busy doing.
