We've hit the final countdown until the first day of school, so we're going to try to cram as much fun as we can into this last week and a half. The weather looks great (unless I just jinxed it), so the girls and I are planning to fit in at least one beach day, one lake day, and maybe even Aquaboggan.
I'll try to update pretty frequently to show you what we're up to. This has been a fairly lame week for posts due to weather, etc. We've done a lot of reading, but that doesn't translate very well into photographs or amusing anecdotes. I also mowed the grass, but I'm thinking you probably don't want to see pictures of that either. I certainly don't.
Bug and Bear used the last of their Christmas Barnes & Noble gift cards this week (we stretched them over 9 months by just getting a book or two at a time), and Bug picked up the next book in a series she's been enjoying. She read the entire 340 page book in 24 hours!! Devoured it like a locust. Not bad for eight-years-old, eh?
(Footnote: For those of you already asking for Christmas ideas, Barnes & Noble gift cards are always a great idea for Bug and Bear. They LOVE going there and picking out books.)
