All Good Things....

We had so much fun this summer and managed to do so much!

We visited the Watershed Nature Center and hiked around to learn more about nature.

We had a party with the Super Cousins when they came to visit from Virginia. That was a short week, and we were sad to see them go.
Miss Mayhem enjoyed the cousins too and was hamming it up for them at Steak N Shake.

We did the Library Reading Program again. Here's Danger Boy and Kid Catastrophe playing it cute for the camera as we waited for one of the shows the Library put on for the kids.
Miss Mayhem also enjoyed her summer reading!
The crafts the Library Reading Program taught this year were especially awesome. These paper mache puppet heads were just one of the many crafts the kids participated in and loved. They are a princess and a dragon in case you can't tell. We also made shields with crests and other designs, bracelets, and several others.
The theme was a A Midsummer's Knight's Read.
We also had fun visiting friends and going to a summer birthday party (with water games!).Kid Catastrophe is going to start a new adventure this week as she goes to Kindergarten! She learned so much in preschool, and seems excited to join her other 5 year old friends in kindergarten this year. Miss Mayhem will be spending lots of solo time with Tired Mom as the older kids go back to school. I'm sure she will miss her little entertainers, but she may also enjoy the alone time just her and mom. Summer is coming to an end, but now we have so many fond memories to keep us going as the older kids head back to school!

How cute- sounds like you did have an adventurous summer! We did not, unfortunately. But there's still time!

Our summer is cut short by an early start of the school year this year, but you guys still have time!
