We’ve been soooooo busy with summer fun!!! I honestly can’t even remember all we’ve done this past week.
On Thursday we went to the Pensacola Kids Place with Elias’ friend Jack (and his mom!!). The kids had so much fun..it started to get a little crowded after about an hour and the boys decided they needed a doughnut so that’s just what we did. Then me and E had a few errands to run before we came home, so we did that and then had a nap when we got home!
Friday we spent just about ALL day outside either in the pool or on the water slide. SO much fun. This is probably my favorite part of summer. Just staying home and having fun outside.I love not having to load up in the car. I feel like this water slid was possibly the best investment we made for summer fun this year. unfortunately, it has RAINED nearly every day and we haven’t gotten to play on it as much as we would like.. 🙁
Finally, I worked all day on Friday I worked on busy boxes…Elias needed some new fun things to play with while I needed some time here and there where I didn’t have to constantly entertain him. So, I got together a bunch of materials from Dollar Tree, Dollar General, my personal collection of “stuff” at school, and our playroom! I ended up with five busy boxes. So far he has enjoyed playing with these BUT he still needs a little guidance with them. I am really hoping that as summer goes by he will become more independent with them and they will help his imagination grow, help him learn, and give me a little time of quiet ((without sticking him in front of the television)). Over the next couple of weeks I will explain what is in each box.
PS: iPhone photos will have to get the job done for this post…..little blurry..ugh.
Also, soooooooo super proud of how well E has been doing with potty training. We have even worn undies out in public…which for those of you who have went through potty training, you know how that is a huge feat. 🙂 I’m so proud of him. However, night time potty training isn’t something I even know how to tackle…..eek.
