1st week of summer

Well, we're off to a good start with summer fun! Carleigh spent all week at GA (Girls in Action--Christian girls camp) camp and just got home this afternoon. She said she had a ball. I think she was a wee bit homesick. We received several phone calls throughout the week...of course, I'm not complaining. Luke started the week off at VBS with a couple of friends, participated in acting camp every day this week, performed a puppet show today, and began his first week of swim team. He wasn't so sure about the whole swim team idea on Monday, but by yesterday afternoon, he was a new man! I can't wait to see him tomorrow at his first meet. Carleigh will join the team on Monday. Beginning at age 9, they have to swim two lengths of the pool instead of just one. I look forward to seeing her build stamina and get excited about competing.

Probably need to work on the entry...he has arms and legs going every which way, but I love it!
 We got to watch Luke's best buddy play his All-Star championship game Wednesday evening! It was a nail biter, but they won! The announcer said it was the first time in 25 years a team from our town had won the championship! So glad we got to watch them win!!

I got to spend some time swimming in open water with my good friend, Jessica, Thursday morning. Man, it's been a long time! I have to figure out a way to fit in a swim or two during the week. I've also been doing the Tracy Anderson work-out. I'm supposed to do it 6 days a week, but I haven't been able to build up to that yet...hopefully soon. Would really like to do another sprint triathalon, but we'll see.

Last week we spent some time at the library.

She is so dang cute!
Cora loved the cute chairs!

She is so excited about books!

Luke is especially excited about getting prizes for completing books!

 I spent a good part of the day today getting inspiration off Pinterest for Father's Day. I'm excited about the cute free printables I found. Kelvin is in the throes of summer school, so our time is limited, but I'm hoping we can make it down to one of our favorite dives for Father's Day lunch. I received an awesome recipe for Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast. Kelvin LOVES peanut butter, so I'm thinking this recipe will be a Father's Day breakfast winner for sure! Instead of strawberries, I think we'll use the remainder of the blueberries we got from our friends with the blueberry farm. They are delicious!

Next week, we will do more swimming, incorporate some fun learning activities, clean and declutter some spaces, visit the library again (Cora loved story time), celebrate 21 years of wedded bliss (holy wedding bells, Bat Man!) and play at a family fun game center for Kelvin's company family day. Hopefully, we'll fit in a sleep over or two. I would love to incorporate this idea I discovered today (yes, on Pinterest.)

Well, it's late, again, and we have a swim meet at dark-thirty in the morning, so bye for now! Have a wonderful weekend!
