It doesn't truly feel like summer unless you have pineapples on your fingernails. #Amirite???? No, but I am so seriously obsessed with these. And it was basically a huge travesty that they only lasted like two days before the polish started chipping and looking trashy (but did that stop me from wearing that polish anyway for another week??). Would it be super weird to go back to the nail place and ask the lady to give me these nails again? Especially since she giggled the whole time when she originally did it because she thought I was so silly??
Ok, ok, yes other things have been going on besides my nails getting polished. Fox fake graduated from preschool! Camaron got a new job! I made dinner! And more!
Fox has been big on typing lately. He always tries to get in on the action when Camaron and I are working on our computers (you know, the best possible time to randomly start pressing buttons on our keyboards). So we have started having him earn computer time. When he practices typing, we write out a few words for him on Pages, then he re-types each word. He loves searching-out the letters and symbols on the keyboard. I love that he's learning new skills. Plus, look how cute and little he looks with the laptop on his lap!
^^^Sloane, "reading" up a storm:)
Fox's graduation was so much fun! I really loved how much he loved it. He had been counting down the days for weeks! The kids wore their cute little hats, sang a special graduation day song to us, got awards (Fox got the award of "sweetest boy"-insert a million sappy heart faces here-), then we all ate treats and the kids had a water party!
Don't let this picture fool you. I know it looks like Fox is triumphantly climbing to the top of this huge inflatable slide, about the slide through a little waterfall into an attached inflatable pool. nope. He's climbing down the ladder. He was a little hesitant to slide the slide at the party, but he liked climbing the ladder:) ps check out his sick barb wired temp tatt. And toenail polish:)
Sloane is basically fearless these days. She was a big fan of the slip-n-slide at the party ...and of eating every cupcake and cookie she could find.
Fox is still only three, so it wasn't his "real" preschool graduation, but he finished his first year. And did AMAZING! We love his teacher so much and can't wait for his summer science program to start up:)
And yes, as mentioned up top, Camaron got a new job! Well, it's actually a promotion at one of his other jobs (that he is so gonna rock!). So it's looking like no more late night work schedule! More family fun time! Yipppeeee!!!
More summer fun to come!
Semi-related: I really want to make a summer "to do" list for our family. You know, fun activities, places to visit, things to eat... I've never done it before, but I accomplish so much more when I write things down. Any recommendations of what we should include??
