The Preschool Years: Summertime!

20 Aug

August 2010

Where has the summer gone?  I’ve let time slip away from me.  Or maybe we have just been too busy enjoying our “doing something fun every day” plan…

J3 and J2 visited nearby Cathedral Caverns for their first real cave exploration.  They experienced TOTAL DARKNESS!

We took a trip to the Birmingham Zoo and rode the carousel while there.

We saw the STAR WARS exhibit at the Space and Rocket Center with our friends the Mitchells.  (J3 did a great C3PO impersonation.)

We visited at the park with Bible study friends.

And we just generally held down the fort back at the castle…

All in all, it’s been a GREAT summer!

We are, however, ready for a new year: new classes, new school, new friends!

Here’s to FALL!

Family Fun on the Fourth of July: FREEDOM!

5 Jul

One of my favorite things about our neighborhood is the pool.  Not only is swim team fun in June, but on the 4th of July we hold an all-out freedom celebration with all-American fun for the kids.  It just reminds me why living here is so much fun.  Here is just a sample of the activity from this year’s pool time fun on the 4th.

Pool games, like diving for coins!

Free cotton candy, soft drinks, and popcorn all day long!

Face painting! (Blue star for AC, Red fish for J3, Pink flower for Boo)

A jumpy house, grilled hotdogs and burgers, and lots of fun with friends made for the perfect day!  What a way to celebrate our freedom and our friends!
