Summer Reading

Both kids have already hit 100 books for the summer reading program. We haven't been as active in the activities as we have in the past, but we have spent lots of time this summer reading. I love spending time with the kids reading and talking about books. It is one of my favorite things to do.
Ava's reading is blossoming and she is getting more and more confident. I love that she can pick up books and just start to read them. It is so fun to hear her read and know how fast she is progressing. I also love seeing her read to Harrison. It is so great to see them interacting together and enjoy spending time together (even if in the next 5 minutes they are fighting like cats and dogs!).

Birthday Partying - Rocking the Circuit

We have been on the birthday party circuit this summer and the kids have been to several parties since school let out.
Harrison had a friend from daycare who had a party and it was a ton of fun for the kids because of the INFLATABLES! The kids love them. Then two weeks later, Ava had another daycare friend with a pool party at Nana Cheryl's. Follow that up with Ava's friend, Savannah, that afternoon at the park. And then it was on to Uncle Nick Knot's 27th birthday which we got to spend with him.
This summer has flown by in a whirlwind, but I definitely want to remember these fun celebrations that we got to be a part of this summer.
