Good morning Ladies ! I hope you are all doing well as we move quickly towards the end part of August. The summer has gone so fast and the kids start school a week from Monday! The weather has been pretty humid early in the week but has cooled of nicely heading into the weekend.
Last Saturday we did some landscaping work in our backyard . It was unplanned but due to having a pile of dirt from the dig out for our new pool we wanted to fill in some areas that were low in our yard. We worked together to fill wheelbarrows, the kids helped also. After all we did we still have a lot so our friend Brandon is going to come over today with a front load tractor and spread the rest of the dirt for us, thank you Brandon!! On Sunday we went to Church and enjoyed coffee and donuts afterwards. The kids had friends come visit and their Mom and I had a nice chat for a while as they swam . One of them had a sleepover.
The week did go in fast with kid activities and some more playdates . The new pool is proving popular with them ! Thursday was a big day. Our oldest son had orientation for middle school , still hard to believe for me ! He said it went well and got the bus there and back. Then the younger kids got to meet their new teachers in elementary school. They are in a new school since our move but i think they will adapt well. The teachers were nice and welcoming to them! On Friday our daughter got picked for the 9th grade volleyball team and was excited by that. She is a high schooler now , where has the time gone ??
On Friday night our friends Brian , Crystal and their kids came over for game night. It was a fun time we played name 5 where as it suggests you have to name 5 of something, one question was name 5 bands that begin with B . Can you answer it ? It was fun and stressful all at the same time as you are on teams of 2 or more. We also played giant spoons a fast moving game played with a deck of cards when one person gets 4 of a kind they inconspicuously grab a spoon from the table and wait to see how long it takes for others to notice . then everyone grabs but there is one less spoon than competitors and if you don’t get a spoon you get an S. When you are last grabbing 5 times you are out! It is so fun!
I wanted to get my post published early as Brandon is coming over at 8am for breakfast . Got to feed the workers!
