We quickly flipped to summer mode over here. Schedules out the window, bedtimes pushed back, sleeping in, tiring out from the sun, and making new adventures each day.
We go to the Y often, visit the library, run around and pick strawberries at the orchard, play in the back yard, go on walks, have lots of cookouts and have lots of popsicles.
Ainsley has been dedicated to her summer chore chart. Waking up each day and making her bed, feeding the pets, getting dressed, and helping clean. At the end of each week of completed chores, she gets money. She saved up to get “Chelsea’s playhouse” she has been wanting.
She also did a week of soccer camp which she asked to do. She and her friend Tate went and learned soccer skills, daily devotional, and games each morning.
We have gotten together with lots of friends and have enjoyed time that the busyness of the school year takes away.
We also have been working on riding our bikes and eating the honey from honeysuckle.
Our babysitter, Lauren, got engaged and we are over the moon happy for her. Jack, or “big jack” as my kids call him, comes with her if he’s in town and she’s babysitting. This week Lauren brought Ainsley a gift. It was a puzzle and once completed asked her to be their flower girl. Along with it was the sweetest note about how her and jack have watched her grow into a sweet young lady and they wanted her to be a part of their special day. I was all kinds of emotion. Ainsley was mainly nervous:)
We are soaking up summer as much as we can!
