Pinterest Inspired Snack

No Bake Energy Balls... the kids did the dumping and helped with the mixing. So cute!

Beach Day

Sawyer found his big bag'o sand toys in the basement last week. It is one of those things I would rather leave in hiding so I don't have to deal with the aftermath. No one likes sand in their swimming suit, or their car or their eyes. But, sometimes it just needs to happen and you are glad when it does, except for sand in your eyes. Sawyer began begging last week so then I showed him where I wrote it on the calendar. Thursday, July 19th, Kent Park Beach. As it turns out it was a glorious day with milder temperatures than what we have gotten used to. Sawyer whined loudly that he didn't want to get sand on his feet before we even set foot toward the water. He cried when I tried to make him walk himself so I ended up carrying him under my arm, making a scene. Veda put sand in her mouth just as you would expect. Then we spent 3 hours wading and splashing and digging and sifting and dumping. It was quality time and I took many mental snapshots wishing I was brave enough to bring the camera onto the sandy area. Then we drove to Ghurties and Veda fell asleep with her flip-flops on her hands. I got a picture of that. :)

Gotta Start Somewhere...

 I am living, and spending a ridiculous amount of time on Pinterest.  This has led to some new eats and some cute projects for the kiddos though.  Here is a peak into the process...  Will add finished product photos later, maybe.

Other than making memories with my kiddos this summer I am working on getting a meal planning system that I can live with as well as getting ready for my NEW JOB!  Which, I am super pumped about.  This includes mentally preparing to be a teacher in a regular school building and buying real grown up clothes.
