Five on Friday!
I have to admit, I cried each time a girl won a medal. Especially Gabby and Aly's gold medals. I saw all of the competitions except the women's final. That was on Erin's actual birthday and we were out at Six Flags amusement park with a few friends and family. Unfortunately I forgot to set the DVR for that night. But I have never enjoyed the women's gymnastics competition more!
2. Erin has been wanting to create layouts lately. So I have given her some extra photos, scraps of paper and her own box of scrap supplies. Here is one of her creations.
3. Lots of bike riding this summer as a whole family or sometimes just me and the kids. I took a few photos one day when the kids were riding up and down our street. Although Evan can go around the block on his own now.
4. Thanks to several of his friends, Evan has discovered a new favorite computer game called Minecraft. He loves the Creative play more than Survival mode for sure. And I think that is because he loves designing the buildings. He loved his Architecture for Kids class he took this summer and I am on the look out for similar classes!
5. And Back to School shopping is done! The kids don't start for two and a half more weeks, but I didn't want to be rushing around at the last minute. Erin and I made a trip to the uniform store to get her fitted for her new little Kindergarten jumpers. Can I just say adorable?! I cannot wait to take photos on her first day. Although it is a little bittersweet for me :)
So I am just going to enjoy the last few weeks of summer because I know it is going to go by fast! :)
