Summer Days

About a month ago, the kids wanted to buy a small above ground pool. My husband told them that if they could come up with the money, they could have one.

Well, they put together about $7 in cash between the two of them and then found a bag of change their grandparents had given them. We took the change to cash it in and they ended up having over $30 in change. So they were only about $10 short of what they needed, but I took care of that. They have had so much fun in this little pool!

We've had to drain it and fill it up a couple times because the filter would kick off and then we didn't realize that we had to add chemicals to it to keep the water from getting green. Oops.

The filter died the other day, so we had to trash the pool. Oh well, they definitely got their money's worth!

Kids Perfoming

I have been a horrible blogger lately. I guess there are worst things to be though, right? : )

We have been so busy with end of school activities and then my hubby was sick. We've visited with family. Now we are gearing up for Adventure Week at church, so the craziness continues! Good craziness, though.

I wanted to share some pics from K's church musical- Cool in the Furnace.

Here he is on the big screen.

I also wanted to share some from E's preschool graduation.

They did a musical, Down by the Creek Bank

Here is her speaking part, which was prerecorded (GENIUS), shown on the big screen.

Here's E with one of her besties.

This is her whole graduating class. Do you see her on the back row? She's looking for me!

We were so proud of both of their performances!
