Our Summer - Day 2

We signed up the kids for our library's summer reading program. Here, Jared reading a few books to the girlies :)
Swimming in our pool this afternoon...Anna

He wanted me to take a picture of him floating and giving me "thumbs up" ;D

Anna lost her first tooth!

She's had this one tooth on the bottom be loose for a while.  Like maybe the last 2 weeks.  Well, last night, after being tucked in bed, it finally came out!  She was super excited about it!  Her sisters and brother were quite excited for her too ;)  That is so sweet, that they get excited for each other!!  Jared let Anna borrow his "tooth fairy pillow" that his 1st grade teacher, Mrs. P, made and gave to him.  Yes, the tooth fairy came and surprised Anna with a $1 bill :)  She did say she wished that she could have kept that tooth.  She loved how small and cute it was - Ha! ;D

Anna, right after her tooth came out
The next morning.  I love her toothless grin :)

Our Summer - Day 1

I had the great idea "hey, I should post about each day of our summer break!"  I am going to TRY to do this ;)  Hopefully, each day will include a picture (or two)  but it might just mention what we have done that day.  I guess this is my way of enjoying and remembering our summer before all 5 kids go back to school, all day (especially since the girls start all-day Kinder!).

For our first day of break, we took a "picnic and splash pad outing" at our church.  The church just built a splash pad and it finally opened last Sunday.  The kids and I had fun!

Oh, but first we made a paper chain countdown to Kindergarten, for the girls.  Each girl gets to take 1 chain off each day.

The kids having a picnic lunch...
...then it's splash time!

Last day of school

Well, I can officially say we have one 4th grader and four Kinders.  My, oh my!  Where has the time gone!?! **sniff, sniff**  Now, we have ~54 days until school starts up again for us.  The kids are looking forward to our summer break (as am I...spending time with them before they all leave me and go back to school ;D ).  We are ready for summer! :)

Jared.  Done with 3rd grade!  A great year with lots of learning and fun!  Now, moving on to 4th grade :)
Anna, Bethany, Suzan and Brielle.  2.25 years of preschool.  All done!  No more!  We now have four Kinders :)
