Summer!!

Hallelujah! 
It's finally summer!  
We had a great school year but this year I have been anticipating summer like never before. 
I'm soaking up every second of having all my kiddos with me every day. 
And having no agenda. 
Well other than fun and sun! 
I love doing the first and last day of school pictures.
I think Kenzie looks pretty much the same but she lost 4 more teeth and I'm sure she grew another foot taller. 
The past couple of years we have made a summer fun list. 
I love how it helps us be intentional about actually doing all the fun things we want to do and how it gives our week some direction.
Plus checking off boxes is super fun.
So far we have gone to the lake
and discovered Huddy's hidden talent. 
He'll probably be a pro surfer by the time he's 10.
He's got some crazy balancing skills. 
We have been taking some evening strolls to the park after dinner. 
Wesley was so excited to finally be able to do the monkey bars all by himself! 
We went to the library
(I always forget how awesome it is. Why don't we go more often?!)
and had a bonfire with friends at the beach. 
We made rootbeer floats
(which half of my kids thought were gross....WHAT???!!!)
{more beach fun}
Kenzie had her first swim meet. 
We are all loving swim. 
It's so exciting to watch!! 
 We have been enjoying lots of days at the pool too. 
I'm so excited that the pool is finally doable (and dare I say enjoyable).
The last few years were so hard with so many little ones.
I was always worried someone was going to drown! 
But this year I am so thankful for swimmers and Puddle jumpers. 

Hope you guys are enjoying summer too!!
