It's hard to believe 2 weeks have gone by already. I still need to update pictures from the last post! Oh well, I suppose you could say we are having a good time enjoying summer. Evelyn and Sylvia enjoyed 2 weeks of morning swim lessons and then almost everyday went to a playground and then back to our pool. Some days they were in the pool 3x in one day! They literally smell of chlorine, no matter how often they take a bath. For the weekends, it seems to be the norm to have 1-2 families over for dinner one evening. The Garr's and Berry's joined us (so 7 kids total!) on Friday the 12th. Saturday, we hit the pool and Sunday we met up with some friends for breakfast in Old Town to meet their new baby.
Last weekend, Grandpa and Alexis (14 year old niece and the girls cousin) drove all the way from Indiana to meet us in Luray for camping at Jellystone Park (or as Sylvia calls it, Jellybean Stone). It was sooo hot, so we were very thankful for Grandpa's luxurious RV with air conditioning, beds, and full kitchen. The DVD and popcorn helped too! We pretty much swam all day and hung out in the RV after around 4pm. We did go out on paddle boats and did a round of mini golf. On the way out we stopped to pick peaches and blackberries. David rode his motorcycle out so Grandpa and David enjoyed some guy time on skyline drive.
This week the girls are in drama camp at a local elementary school. They are really enjoying. They seem to be making the set and preparing for a show they will put on Friday.
Next week and the week after they are in Vacation Bible School at local churches/preschools. Lots of their neighborhood friends will be there too (it's the best deal in town!), and while we aren't religious, I'm not opposed to them getting a little Jesus in the summer. They are well organized and a lot of fun!
Then, we go to Michigan to see Granny, Grammommy, Gramps, the Benson Crew (including 3 cousins), Uncle Shane, Aunt Sheri, and Uncle Kirk. I'll be there 9 days with the girls, David will come out a day later. Should be good fun! Excited to see all that Grammommy and Gramps have done. Lots of hard work that will provide many, many more years of enjoyment for everyone.
I promise pictures soon. Maybe tomorrow, if you're lucky :)
