We’re back and we all have a little bit of a vacation hangover. The nanny family was down south all last week and i was at home having a staycation by myself! The kids jumped right back into the routine. Monday morning we were back at the pool first thing in the morning to prepare for another swim meet. The oldest was the first one in the pool helping her coach set up lane lines. She loves being a helper!
After swimming we headed to the playground and had a picnic lunch. It was only in the mid 70’s and it was cold in the shade but we enjoyed the sunshine ☀️ and blue skies! We were at a playground near a library so before we ate the oldest read us the story on the storybook trail!
The quote of the week by my 2 year old nanny girl “that smells red!” She was referring to my hand sanitizer!
Tuesday we went to a playground in Avon that we haven’t been to in a long time. The oldest requested we go back there. Another beautiful day. Sun was shining and the temp was 71°. We played hard on the climbers before we had a picnic lunch. Afterwards we went for a hike. My nanny boy was excited to bring his camera to capture photos of birds. It was challenge for him because, well, birds fly when you approach them. He finally found a Robin that would cooperate!
Wednesday was a very special day for everyone. After our normal morning swim practice we came back to the house. Nana came to pick up the 2 big kids and they went and saw the new Buzz Lightyear movie. The littlest one and i went to meet Mr John for lunch. They are besties and talk everyday on the phone so they enjoyed real time together!
We finished the week strong. After the oldest finished swim practice we headed to the park. The temp was in the 90’s but that doesn’t stoop us. We went the playground with the swing zip line. They requested this playground. We played hard and we were hot. To cool down we did the historical walk in the woods. The oldest LOVES history and she was so excited. My nanny boy was hot and hungry but he was a trooper. We left the woods and headed to the pavilion for a picnic lunch!
After everyone rested we quickly headed to the library. My oldest nanny girl completed her reading board. Yes she read 16 hours in less than a month. She was so excited and could wait to turn in her game board for a prize. Now can she finish 2 game boards this summer??? she picked out a chapter book from the prize shelf. I’m so proud of this girl!
