We had a jam-packed June.
Each camper is awarded with a special word at the end of the week.
Calvin = helpful
Ruby = creative
Also, Calvin lost his glasses and I discovered the original ombre. Nice work, God! Such a trend-setter, you!
(This joke is only funny if you know I call him Parker a lot.)
My stuff: H&R Block sign ($5), Giant M ($10), Blue metal box with lid ($5), Antlers ($5), Curtains ($5), Orange stool ($10), Orange coat rack thingy ($6), Two metal trays ($10)
All of the kids slept through it.
I kept waiting for the tornado siren to go off, but it never did.
I was stunned the next morning when I saw the destruction. Our street was a disaster. Most of the city was a wreck. Giant trees clipped in half - hundreds of them, everywhere.
It was eerie!
I've never been happier about our lack of mature trees.
It's hard to believe no one in our area was hurt.
It was suuuper rocky, which was a TOTAL JACKPOT as we spend most of the afternoon looking for sea glass.
Guys, it has been my lifelong dream to find sea glass. I've searched on every tropical and Floridian vacation, and found nada.
I was starting to take it personally with God.
Years ago I whined about this and a reader MAILED me a handful of sea glass! Can't handle the kindness.
But still, I wanted to find my own.
And I did! I found 4 pieces in just a couple of hours. Can you believe it???
But it's true.
And we've done lots of wonderful, blissfully boring days where we putter around at home and try to stay busy. Or not.
We've done crafts and recipes and invited people over.
We've done bike rides and umpteen ice cream cones.
The Biggers learned cursive.
We ate plenty of $1 tacos on Wednesdays.
Maybe I've said this before, but I think this is my favorite summer ever.
I can't stop loving it.
And we still have 4 more weeks until school starts!
(I'm actually despondent over only having 4 weeks left, but I'm trying not to show it right now...)
I love ya, Summer '14.
You're being so good to me.
