Summer List Update...

So far, we have had the BUSIEST SUMMER EVER. There has not been one single morning of sleeping in with nothing to do yet. Bummer! I'm working a few days a week so the boys have had a babysitter with them. We've also had four mornings of tennis camp (with four more next week and the week after!), we've gone out of town, and we've just been BUSY. Stink! We need more weeks and weekENDS this summer.

Today is the first day all summer that I've slept late. I got up about 9AM and there was no one home! The boys are at Grandmama's putting together a batting cage and Eddie was at church for Methodist Men. It has been so quiet all morning and I have enjoyed sitting in my chair drinking my coffee and reading!

We are rocking and rolling on our summer list, so I thought I'd share the updated version! Will has also had his date with me, I just forgot to mark it off. 

James is reading like a crazy man. I think he's up to 7 or 8 books (or more) by now. He is REALLY loving the Geronimo Stilton series, in case you're looking for something for your own child. I've been working on a Mary Kay Andrews book and Eddie has been reading a book called Gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jones that I picked up for myself at the library a few weeks ago. I've also been reading  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to the boys at night when I can. We're almost finished with it and when we are, we'll watch both movies just for fun.

We went to Lake Oconee for Memorial Day weekend and marked several things off while we were there. 

We went on our family vacation already and I'll blog about that sometime soon. Things didn't go as planned, but we tried to make the best of it and we still had a really fun time.

We've already had a few Family Game Nights. The boys almost always choose Monopoly for those. We have a few versions of Monopoly - the one with the credit card (which they've never played), Jurassic World, and Disney (the one with the castle). They're all the same game, but they have different places on the spaces. We set a timer (usually for an hour) and then when the timer goes off, we count everyone's money. We've never FINISHED a game. Lol!

Our ice cream floats were fun! Bluebell vanilla ice cream + Coke. Neither boy loved it (and I don't either), but it was a fun one nevertheless!

We are enjoying our time out of school! Hopefully we'll get more of our fun marked off in the coming weeks!
