June is going by fast, and summer has been busy for us.

The two older boys had swim lessons the first two weeks and did great, we will do another session in August when we get back from our family reunions.

Also we have been doing a lot of water activities to fill up our days in the hot Texas weather. Monday we usually go to a splash pad, then Tuesdays and Wednesdays we have play groups at the pool. Then in the afternoons we usually have pop corn and watch a movie.

We also have been playing dress up a lot, and made some home made Birthday cake ice cream that Dustin and I really liked, our boys, not as much, they had it once and called it good.

Also since Dustin has the summer off we trade to work on our art, each week varies, but Monday-Thursday Dustin goes to school and works on his art, or our lesson plans we are working on for private art lessons (more on that later)  then he comes home around 2 then I work on art till dinner. Then Friday is my art day and he takes the kids all day. Then the weekend is family time, so far this schedule has worked pretty good.

And we are excited to head to Utah/Idaho in the next little bit!

Summer and Memorial Day

It's been raining a lot here in Texas, but the other day it was perfect weather so we played outside in out little pool. And it got me all excited about the summer and many days outside swimming. The two older boys start swimming lessons next week!
Also this past Memorial Day we hung out with my brother and his family with the Cruz family. It was a little muddy from all the rain but we still had fun. The boys loved riding the boats and they always love hanging out with their cousins.
