Grow baby Grow!

One of the last activities Corbin did in kindergarten was to plant a seed in a cup.
With school over we transplanted his seedling in the garden and crossed our fingers.
Well, it worked.  
We now have an ENORMOUS sunflower in our garden.  

Pretty fun!

A trip to the Fair

Last weekend we went to the fair.
Mostly we went for dinner...gotta love event eating...but we looked around a bit too.
The kids did a little shopping.
Corbin bought a strobe light stick and Makayla bought a pink polka dot purse.
Pretty predictable.

Despite a few minutes of rain (or maybe because of it), the weather was delightful.
Nice and cool.
We had a great time as a family.

Making New Friends

Makayla and Corbin have spent 80% of their summer playing with friends.  

On the rare occasion that someone in the neighborhood is not available then
they start to get creative. Crafts a plenty have happened around here lately.

On this day, they decided to make people. 
Corbin made his to stand up.  

Makayla's head was a little heavy so she didn't mind lounging about. :)  

Pretty creative if you ask me.

Swimming Lessons

The kids took swimming lessons again this year.  This time they were in the same class.
They tell me they learned a lot but every time I looked at them it seemed this is what they were doing.
Just standing in the pool:

Occasionally, there was a little bobbing:


On the very last day of class they both got to jump off the diving board.

Corbin loved it:

Makayla not so much:
When she was done Corbin said he wanted to try the high dive next time.
Makayla said she never wanted to do that again.  
Pretty typical responses for these two. :)

Activity Days

Since her birthday, Makayla has been participating in activity days with the 8-9 year old girls.  Twice a month they do some type of activity.  Quite a few times I have also attended so I could give rides to some of the other girls.  This means Corbin gets to go too...which he likes most of the time. :)  
Recently, they went to a local splash pad.  

It was a little chilly but the kids were diehards. 

At least my kids were...some of the girls hardly even got wet 
and spent most of the time on the bench.
To each there own. :)
