Staying Busy During the Summer Isn't a Problem

Last week was one of our busiest weeks we have had in a long time. Possibly ever. I have mentioned before that we aren't doing any regularly scheduled activities this summer outside of a few swimming lessons, but that hasn't slowed us down. We spent most of last week catching up with friends and getting outside.

We have been enjoying our local park and splash pad immensely. I think the kids spent a total of 6 hours at the splash pad last week, spread out over a few days.

When we're home, we are exploring around our own house as well.

Both kids love running through the sprinkler and playing in their little pool. We continue finding blooming flowers on our land and the kids love to put together vases. A few days ago, there was a morning storm and the kids wanted to eat breakfast while the storm rolled in. It was quite beautiful!

We've managed to remember and make it to Payton's swimming lessons each week. She will probably only do about 4 sessions this year, but she is learning a lot. At her last sessions she learned to go under water and hold her breath. As scary as it was for me to watch, I couldn't be more proud of her and how much she is growing.
Over the weekend, my husband's parents came to visit and the kids enjoyed them and our town's annual celebration. We all went to the parade and shopped the downtown vendors. It was so much fun but the kids were tired and are definitely ready for a few very quiet days at home.

How has your week been?
