My Week in Review ~ Project 365

Project 365 button designed by

Well this week there's no real theme, but as we wrap up the last week of summer there's still plenty of water activities, a few of Lynx and some other fun stuff!

Sunday ~ August 21st

I got the kids some new pads for their skateboards and they loved riding without worring about scraped elbows or knees in the event of a spill.

Monday, August 22nd

Lynx learned to climb to the top of the scratching post (funny, this pic looked a lot cuter on the camera).

Tuesday, August 23rd

Another hot day, and so another evening jumping on the trampoline with the sprinkler on!

Wednesday, August 24th

He fell asleep with his feet in the air while Bethany was holding him. I thought it was too cute too pass up taking a picture.

Thursday, August 25th

Last day of swimming lessons. The kids did great and both moved up a level. Elisha's confidence in his abilities really soared with this swim class.

Friday, August 26th

Remember our lady bug larvae? Well, now they are full grown pink spotted lady bugs. We turned them loose today. I promised Bethany I would order more so her class can watch them transform.

Saturday, August 27th

Her actual birthday is Monday, but since that is the first day of school, we celebrated today.

More swimming, it's what she requested to do. And she got her Daddy-boat ride, her favorite thing when we are by the water.

Well, I don't know about you but this week flew by! Next week school starts, so we're back to schedules, getting up early, packing lunches, and nights of homework. Good bye summer vacation we will miss you! We made some great memories this year, and some nice relaxing moments. Until we meet again next year...

Fun cake!

Those are some heavy-duty pads for skating...definitely better than scrapes, for sure!

Hope the beginning of school goes well.


Loved seeing the skateboarders. That cake looked yummy. Your school starts Monday...we start our third week on Monday.

Love those kitty pics - and the water ones. I'm glad your kids are so comfortable in the water.

Dr. M has started back to school here too - and next tomorrow I go back to work. So I'd better remember to pack lunches tonight!

Always drawn to skateboards. Our youngest LUVS the sport. All throughout adolescence early teens, he had to have a new board every year for his birthday. His dream was to open a skateboard shop. Eventually he did here in town. He moved it three times. As his little family grew (they have three now), and the economy failed, he had to get out of the business. Now he is a custom wood worker.
¡Feliz cumpleaƱos, Bethany!
