I took the kids to Settlers Park on Friday night to play at the splash pad. It was pretty hot. We played for awhile and then we came home and Scott and I went on a date after that. I've been watching my friend Jessica's daughter for a few hours the past few weeks so she's babysat for us in exchange a few times. I love having her babysit. It's great.
I went to a neighborhood yard sale Saturday morning. I found a 6 person tent for $5. Hopefully it has all the parts. Last year I bought a giant tent for $60 and it was missing a pole. Doy! I figured this deal was worth a $5 burn if it didn't work out. I found a tiny dresser for the kids room. I never have enough storage in there. I found a really cute pair of shoes that look like have never been worn. Score.
The past few weeks we've been having Corbin mow the lawn. He does a pretty good job. He goes all over the place all haphazard and crazy but he gets most spots and you can't tell how crazy he mows it when he's done. I think I'm going to make him do the breakfast dishes this summer as part of his summer chores. I'm really not looking forward to teaching him how to do the dishes. Teaching your kids how to work is dang hard.
|Piper has gotten very good at coloring. She takes a very long time and carefully colors in the lines. You can see in the two pictures below how she has gotten even better from this picture.|
|Some Corbin school work. I really hate holding on to stuff so I snapped some pictures.|
|A self portrait. Ha.|
