Early Summer Favorites

Leah's Preschool Graduation

Love me some naked baby bum.

Leah has been a really beginner reader since last September, but in June she really took off with it. The last few months she's been picking out books on her own and reading without any help.

Game nights

Tuckered out..

One of Leah's favorite things to do is gather all the downstairs pillows and make a bed out of them.

After giving Parker a banana, unattended.

It looks like Woody is choking Parker, but he's just getting a piggy back ride (courtesy of Leah).

We are involved in a babysitting co-op with some of our neighbors. One Friday a month we babysit up to 10 kids (including our two), the remaining three Fridays are our designated date nights. Free babysitting for three weeks = AWESOME!

Braden wrote this for Leah completely unprompted one night.

Parker's first time swimming; he's not in love with the idea. Leah took a two week swimming course this summer and has really done a great job with it. She is a kicking pro and just working out how to get her arms to really move her.
Leah also learned a little piano number this summer. I can't wait to get her into lessons.

I need to get in on a babysitting co-op, I can't imagine having 3 nights of babysitting. Best idea ever! And awesome job on the piano Leah, and Parker too!

What a great idea. Babysitting co-op. I need to start something like that because I can't remember the last time I went on a date. Looks like you've had a fun summer

I have a thing for naked baby bums too. His is really cute. So I'm going to have to figure out how to do this babysitting co-op thing. That's a great idea! My only problem would be that our kids go to bed super would it be to have FOUR dates in a row though!?
