Summer is in full swing and the time is rushing by too quickly. Debbie has kept the kids busy with fun activities, and they have kept her busy with many needs. Greg has actually been a little less busy with work lately but still has a full schedule between yard work and family demands. It's good that the kids get to see a little more of him lately.
Here are some pictures from our week:
Picnic at the park with Greg's sister
Our local garden community holds free kid's education classes. The kids thought this one on flowers was interesting...even if Abigail's flower stamping didn't really work.
Abigail baked a cake for Great-Grandpa's birthday. She was very proud to have done it all by herself.
Abigail also participated in a girl's pinewood derby. She didn't put a ton of energy into her car and we were a little surprised (and very excited) that she came in 5th overall (out of ~40). The activity was more fun than expected.
One of the ways Debbie said the kids could earn money this summer is by cooking dinner. Alex latched onto this idea and has been asking to make dinner for a while. We were finally able to help him plan and carry this out. Of course he choose a labor intensive taco meal to be his first chef experience. He worked very hard for nearly a hour and a half to put together a very delicious meal for Sunday dinner.
