June 2014

We've worked our way through the first month of summer vacation. At supper tonight we learned that M.G. hasn't met her two summer goals - going to the community pool and eating a s'more.We'll have to get on that! It's been a rainy month so far, hopefully we'll get some good pool weather soon.

M.G. and M2 finished their school year at the end of May. M.G. will move on to a new building next year and she looks so much older than she did when she started at this building for kindergarten! A few days after the end of the school year we traveled to Minnesota. The kids and I stayed with my parents for a vacation while Papa traveled for work.

We had a few days at home before heading to Utah for a family vacation. In those days at home we had M3's birthday! She is so happy to be 4! She wanted flowers on her cake and offered me advice as I frosted. She had a good check-up and is 32 lbs, 40.25 inches. She talked the doctor's ear off and after going to a lot of M4's well child visits finally had the spotlight.

Her big gift from us this year!
The days fly by here. I am really enjoying the time with everyone and am very glad that I can relax in the short evening hours instead of trying to squeeze in some work time.

I have enjoyed watching the kids play together. M4 is getting old enough to participate some of the time. He gravitates toward M.G. a lot and she is good at helping him out. He loves to shout, "mow, mow," and then she lets him mow the grass for her Lego city.

M.G. is on a soccer team this summer and has a few weeks of piano lessons. She, M2, and M3 all are in swimming lessons now. M2 will have a soccer clinic in a few weeks.

We took M2 in for an eye exam before our vision insurance changes for the worse. His vision is great now. I never realized that kids' vision can change suddenly with a growth spurt. It is good to know that likely M.G.'s vision wasn't horrible for a long time, but instead probably quickly changed.

M4 likes to kick the ball around with them! He is trying to talk up a storm and now likes listening to stories.
