Back to our busy school week, two days before school ended Elisabeth's class performed a pirate musical. Here is Elisabeth dressed in Scott's red and white striped shirt with a bandana. She's looks mighty fierce! Argh! :)
The last day of school was field day. I volunteered to do an activity since it was during a week that Scott would be home and could help with our younger girls. They did the olympics and I was in charge of the discus throw (frisbee through a hula hoop) for grades 1 and 4.
And since it's been so hot the kids have been doing a lot of water play activities. Charles thought it'd be funny to sit inside a bucket full of water which we were using to fill the bazooka-water-soaker-gun-thing.
Every Wednesday we have playgroup and lunch at a splash park. It's a good excuse to get us out of the house. I'm definitely becoming a home body...I think life's just so much easier to handle when you're home and you're not worried about someone running off into the street or getting lost in a store or throwing a tantrum in front of strangers or asking you to buy every single item in sight. The library is one place we'll visit about once a week but even that is always an adventure with Jane grabbing every princess book and movie in sight and adding it to her already full basket, Nora toddling down the aisles pulling as many things off the shelves as fast as she can and the older kids fighting over who gets to put my library card in the slot and check us all out...sometimes tears ensue as well as some shoves and not so nice words. We're working on that.
