30 Days of Summer Day 24

I didn’t take any photos today. I think I’ve reached photo burnout. I’ve posted photos for 23 days straight and that is a lot for me. Besides that, today was somewhat uneventful.

We went to the swim store to buy Princess a new suit. Technically we have two but one is way to big. So this will be her second suit, but her competition suit. I got her another online so she has two for practice and one for races. The one that is too big I will save for next year.

We went to Friendlys to eat. Sis has been talking about Friendlys forever. Her and I used to go there often and I don’t think there were any in Florida. Anyway it was a strange Friendlys because it was really small and the air conditioning was broken so the whole thing was just uncomfortable. But she got her Friendlys and maybe we can try again sometime.

We played outside for a little while but mostly stayed in. Getting ready to get back in the grind tomorrow requires rest (for me). 

The Wiz, aka the toughest kid to potty train ever, is making serious progress. I don’t think we’ve had an accident in three days and today for the first time, he came and told me he had to poop.

Wooooohoooooo!!!!! This is life changing. If he goes for a month with no accidents I can finally go back to the gym. He got too big for the baby area, but wasn’t potty trained so he couldn’t go to the big kid area. It’s been like 6 months since I’ve been able to go... maybe more!!!!

30 Days of Summer Day 23

I kind of vowed not to leave the house today. I needed a break. Badly.

I woke up to this sweet angel:


We played a bit on the trampoline:

And did schoolwork:

We went to the store. Princess was brave and tried pasta salad. While I was paying she flagged down a worker and asked her to write down all the ingredients. How precious can a kid be OMG????

Our neighbor had a party so she went wearing her best dress....and has literally been there for 6 hours now.

30 Days of Summer Day 21

Morning swim team dive time!

Princess set up a school for Wiz today. It was so cute. She was reading him stories and teaching him letters. Surpringly he was actually going along with it and obeying his teacher:

Camp drop off we measured ourselves. It ran a little short:

We went to HyperKidz to play for a while:

Evening swim team:

Then we went to Howard County Conservancy firefly festival:

Wiz wanted to dance but got shy:

Catching fireflies:

30 Days of Summer Day 20


My daily morning photo from the pool. 

I had nothing in the tank today as Boss likes to say. Just so so tired... I do enjoy swim team in the morning especially because the kids are in the pool and Wiz stays home withSis, so it’s the ONLY time I have to be alone. If sitting on a chair with 50 other parents qualifies as alone.

Today was Princess’s first day at Camp. It’s only a 3 day camp and it looked like rain, but stayed dry:

We ran around the nature center for a few minutes on the drop off:

The day was 10/10 she said:

At night we made s’mores and looked for fireflies:

30 Days of Summer Day 19

I love morning swim practice. It seems so fresh and happy. Having said that, I’m not the one in the water. I kind of wish I was the one on swim team—-if the water was warm. 

We went to REI this morning to get two items for Princess summer camp tomorrow. I was saving my $34.00 dividend for myself, but like always my babies come first. So basically we got a free hat and water bottle. Saw these geese pass us on the way.

We went bike riding in the afternoon just at a school. I didn’t realize today was an Election Day. Every school seemed like a polling place. We finally found an empty parking lot. I’d take them to ride but I don’t have a bike and I need somewhere for Wiz to play while the big kids ride around.

Wiz literally ran back and forth between baseball fields....

At evening swim practice the kids got their relay ribbons from last week. Princess’s team actually got 2nd and Son’s got 3rd but the 1st place team was disqualified so their teams moved up in rank. Princess was happy to score her 1st first place, even if it was by default.

For fun I might start posting some Timehop photos. Here was a picture taken two years ago today:
