School's Out For the Summer!
Summer is finally here. Time for fun late nights (bedtime later than 7:30!), fun with friends and outdoor activities:
- The kids have been spending lots of time in the "fort" at the end of the street. "Fort" may be an exaggerated description for the wooded lowlands. Some Crayola paint, a rope tied to a tree and some fallen trees make up a paradise for kids. The fort is also home to tons of bugs, worms and frogs. And now our yard is full of various habitats crawling with said creatures!
- Every Mother's Day, Dirk and the kids buy me a strawberry plant. Not only are the flowers beautiful, but we also love picking the fruits.
- Cullen and Simone have been introduced to Jenga. Hours and hours of fun have been had. We are hoping they are experts by the time they get to college :).
- Summer also means fishing off the dock. Bob's Bait Shop better keep stocked up on worms!
