Summer time!

Well this summer has been really busy and packed with fun, and we have really been trying to enjoy the time off from school. Buster and Sweetpea have still been reading and doing a bit of handwriting practice but other than that we haven't done any school work. The girls are doing a once a week art class at our church and they really enjoy that. The kids also have had the chance to play with cousins from out of town. My husbands brother and fam were up in June and had a new baby in July, and my brother and his kids were here visiting yesterday. My big kids got to spend the night with them and have some fun. Buster is continuing swim team through the summer and Sweetpea is now in the Shark level of swim lessons which is kind of a transition class between lessons and team. Buttercup is taking the summer off of swim lessons because there was not a good time for her class. I have been trying to take her to open swim time and she is swimming like a fish. Also my nice camera broke so I was without a camera for most of June and these pictures are not the best since they were taken on a  little point and shoot. Other than this here is some of the things we have been up to. 
 Board game time!

I'm starting to think ahead to this coming school year and getting things ready. Hopefully I will be able to post soon about curriculum and such.
