Happy Summer!  Since school let out, we haven't really slowed down.  It took over a week before anybody could sleep in past 6:30 a.m. and I admit we had a bit of an adjustment period.  Everybody had to remember how to be around each other all. day. long.  There were lots of squabbles over toys and space while Mom concentrated on not losing her marbles the first week!  We kept finding fun things to do and everybody was so tired all three kids have been taking afternoon naps.  All the swimming, enjoying being at home, visits from Ma-Mas and Pa-Pa, and finding things to do around Boerne has been fun but taxing.   It hasn't been difficult staying un-bored, but remembering my camera has been!  (Thank goodness for the iPhone.)  A recap from the last three weeks:

The day after the last day of school.  Just hangin' at home.  
Just a few days in...bowling birthday party!
Bowling Alley game room.
So far, LOTS of time in the pool.  We swim almost every evening which has helped us find our rhythm to enjoy peaceful (mostly) days at home.
Bumming around Boerne.
Our friends the Eggers visited and we hit up Boerne Market Days.  Here is my shout-out for Ellie...this little one is a trooper!  She manages all the running around, the heat, and the loose schedule with ease.
Cooper and Penny did a round of swim lessons.  Penny got over her fear of the diving board!
THIS girl earned a "girl only" shopping/lunch date with Mom.  We hit Penny's favorite spots... TJ Max, Target, and Chick-Fil-A.  (Love her!!!)
Cooper performs in a skit at the Cibolo Nature Center.  Both Coop and Penny attended day camp for a week and had a blast!

First Day/Last Day 2016

FINALLY!  The last day of school is here!  Cooper had a great year in first grade, and Penny did awesome in kindergarten!  Both of them grew a lot, learned A LOT, and changed a little. Bring on summer, second grade and first grade!
