Here we are, 3 days into summer and we have been on the go! A trip to the lake this past weekend with friends, Soccer Skills classes for Sis, a visit to the library, one year photos for the baby, a trip to the vet with Chief, and a few trips to the pool. And I thought we would actually be relaxing this summer! ha!
You all know me by now, so you know we have some fun plans already for the break. Many of you participated in our Postcard Challenge last summer- our goal was to collect at least one postcard from every state...and we did it!!! Read about it here.
So, how are we going to top that this year? I have a few ideas up my sleeve:
Coming soon, I am hosting a flip flop exchange for moms AND kiddos. I'd love to see this turn into a pen-pal for the summer thing with the kids. We'll see how that works out.
There is still tons of great things to do here around Austin that I am making the time for this summer. Such as the dreaded trip to the Snake Farm (Brody has been asking for years to got there- my insides are clenching up just thinking about stepping foot in this place.....the things we do for our kids.). We are also going to visit Lyndon B. Johnson's birthplace and ranch that he vacationed at while president. And we'll top that off with a nice dip in Hamilton Pool. A natural water hole that is amazing:
Let's see, what else?
How could I forget?? Hubby is SO very excited about the World Cup. He is counting down the days. (USA vs. England - June 12 2pm) I'm sure Sis will get involved too. Meanwhile, she is taking soccer skills classes all summer that she LOVES. Brody wants to take a golf camp again.
And both older 2 are going to sleep-away camp with our church at the end of July- Sis went last year and loved it, so she talked Brody into going this year. With his eating preferences, I'm sure he'll be eating bread all week.....
We plan on lots of fun trips to the lake and playing out on the boat. We went this past weekend and the baby loved it.
And lastly, we plan on seeing lots of these all summer long:
