|We have had a great summer. Here are some of the things going on the past couple of months. Playing with Ellie before gymnastics and watching McKenna + popcorn.|
|Pizza + watermelon playdate with school friends that Ava and Sophie missed!|
|Little fuzzy - more pizza + watermelon pictures with Sophie and her best friend Maggie|
|Sliding down the slide from Momma and Poppa Shmidt|
|Cousin love with this cutie Charlie|
|Lots of road trips. We traveled around Ohio and North Carolina.|
|Sophie had some collateral damage on her face. It is almost healed. :) She was helping Ava after a dentist appointment and fell and skinned it on the sidewalk. Big girl.|
|This is our favorite rest stop on the way to Ohio. Sandstone by New River Gorge.|
|How pretty are those arches? And the patio is made from resources around the area.|
|Ryder loved exploring the New River Nature Gorge and all of the animal displays inside.|
|We love to pack a picnic and eat at the top of the mountain.|
|My dad is on Instagram now! I love seeing photos from home that he posts.. Love this photo! Ava had to move the sled to stand on since she was on gravel.|
|This is a great summer salad to make for the pool or a picnic. Parsley + tomatoes + cucumbers + feta + garbanzo beans + lemon balsamic vin. Add salt and pepper and you have a great healthy lunch.|
|They loved jumping off the couch over the noodle. This was an hour before gymnastics and then they did 2.5 more hours of gymnastics! I want their energy. :)|
The girls are having a great time journaling in their summer books and we are practicing Sophie's first and last name. Ava wrote a great journal about dolphins and used this link for some of her interesting facts. For us, doing writing during the summer keeps their writing skills sharp and minds curious!! We love visiting nature centers or even watching Scholastic stories on Netflix. One of their favorite stories is Scaredy Squirrel.
I will do a future post of their journals.
Have a great week!
