Counting down to Summer

Summer break from school just can't come fast enough.

There's been sooo much drama at the Middle and HS sections of my kids' local charter school and we just can't wait to be done with the whole thing.

Jocelyn's 4K preschool class ended on May 12th so she's had an entire week of Summer break so far and she's a big fan :) We've kept very busy and this week has flown by!

One of our favorite things to do in the Summer is to play outside in our backyard at sunset. We've gotten a head start on that this year :)

The kids like it because it's the coolest part of the day plus it pushes bed time back a bit :) I like it because it's the best time to shoot during the day.

Jocelyn has some fake gold and silver plastic coins that various leprechauns have brought her over the years. She likes to hide them in the yard and make you find them. And then you have to do the same for her. It's like hunting for Easter eggs, but the coins are small and it's much easier to loose them.

We even went out to play and swing one morning. We also had to finish reading some books for our reading log, so I just took them outside. Most of the time I feel like that "Frazzled thing" from the book :)

Stuffed animals are never far from the fun. Oh, and she's traded her Piglet obsession for Five Nights at Freddy's stuffed characters. I don't even know where Piglet or Piggie JR are currently lying right now.

For Mother's Day, I got a nice picture with all 3 of my kids :) Thanks, Brian, for the great picture!

And I can thank Brian for the huge flying disc thing that the kids love!

We look forward to many more nights outside on the swings and trampoline, catching lightning bugs and chasing sunsets :)
