This week has been a fun filled week for so many reasons…
On Saturday, Rad took the boys on their first fishing adventure. They all loved their boy time. Gress can’t stop telling EVERYONE he comes across (including the grocery store checkout lady, the bag boy, the hairdresser, and everyone in between) that he now knows how to fish. He also proceeds to show them his cut on his finger and then tell him he got a new pocket knife and cut his finger on it (yep, within the first 2 minutes of learning how to use it, he had his first war wound and apparently he is pretty proud).
On Sunday, one of Gress’ favorite people came to visit…..WILLA!!!! Willa used to take care of Gress when he was younger than Mcree. Oh the memories they share together. Gress was so excited to have her here for a few hours. They caught up, played, laughed and had fun. Mcree kept calling her Illa and I think he loved her just as much as Gress does. They kept fighting over who got to sit next to her on the couch! THANKS Willa for taking the time to come love on Gress (and Mcree).
On Monday, we danced in the rain, got haircuts, and made pretty things for the baby room.
On Tuesday I took the boys to the movies. They have $1 summer movies here at the theatre. Mcree had never been to a movie theatre before and he loved it. With popcorn in hand both boys sat in awe through the whole movie. Mcree keeps asking if we can watch a “movie theatre” at home. We then went with our friends to Chickfila and happened to see more friends there too. And then later the whole family spent most of the evening swimming in our friends pool. Usually Gress swims pretty cautiously with his flippers on. Nope, not this time. He put on his new mask and snorkel he got for his birthday and was under water swimming like a fish. Rad and I just looked at each other and smiled knowing that when Gress is ready to do something, that is when it will happen.
On Wednesday the boys and I went to the beach. AHH the beach. Honestly though, the thought of shlepping everything out to the shore made me just tired thinking of it but luckily I have a beach boy, aka Radford, that loads my car and makes going easy. He even unloads, cleans everything and washes the kids when I get back. He is cute too! We met some friends at the beach who were also meeting other friends. There were 6 boys and 1 girl total who all played really well together. We were in the water most of the day. At one point, we headed out way beyond our heads to the sand bar in the distance. Little did we know it would soon be surrounded by sting rays and a really strong current. Oh what an adventure we had.
Who knows what the rest of the week will hold. I think we are due for some down time so we will probably lay low on Thursday. And then on Friday and possible Saturday, I am headed to a homeschool conference to be inspired, buy some books, and learn some new things.
Hope you had some adventure and fun in your week!
