Days Gone By

On Monday…

Monday was the first day of summer care. Zach does lessons three days a week as well on works on stuff for the next school year and it allows Ava a chance to do fun things like putt-putt, go to the park, bowling, etc with her friends. This was them on the first morning. IMG_0409

Reed’s teachers are good about sharing photos of him during the day. From this picture, I can just hear him saying “cheeeee” as she took the photo. He was probably happy because snack time is his favorite! :)IMG_0413

On Tuesday…

I love these two kiddos!IMG_0418

Reed got a hold of a pencil and drew on the wall. It fell out of the container, and in the few seconds I finished what I was doing and turned around to get it, he’d already done this. However, I just thought this was bad. Stay tuned for Saturday.IMG_0424 

On Wednesday…

Wednesdays and Fridays, Ava stays home. Reed does some of the time, if Zach and Ava don’t have things to do. We have to pay for him regardless of whether or not he goes, so sometimes it’s worth it to send him to get a few more things done around the house. However, he was not happy to go to school without Dada or A-yuh. He cried for them both the whole way there.IMG_0436

That evening we went to my grandma’s for a bit while Zach was getting a hair cut. Ava was SO tired and fell asleep on the way home. Reed also didn’t like this as he kept yelling at her to try and wake her up.IMG_0444 

On Thursday…

Thursday night I headed out for dinner and drinks with one of my favorite friends, Amanda. We had the BEST time. We spent a leisurely three hours enjoying a break from our duties at home. We laughed so HARD I don’t think any of the calories in this yummy dessert counted! (Sounds good, right?!)IMG_0447IMG_0449 

On Friday…

Friday evening was my company’s picnic. The weather was BEAUTIFUL. They had a yummy dinner and some bounce houses, as well as playground equipment, live music, and prizes. We all had fun and even won a great prize (a $100 Walmart card – this was my 2nd year in a row to win this!)!!!!  The kids LOVED playing and were sad to leave even though they were EXHAUSTED!  IMG_0455 IMG_0458 IMG_0461 

When I went applied for this job, I didn’t know that my (2nd) cousin worked there. Not only do we work together, but we work in the same department. ha! This is Reed and her littlest swinging together. They loved it!IMG_0472

He was SO tired on the way home! IMG_0481

On Saturday…

Zach went golfing Saturday morning. I had let Ava do some painting and she had put the lids back on the jars, but somehow, Mr. Reed got up on the table, opened the paint, and I walked into the paint ON THE COUCH! Oh, this one is going to give me a run for my money. I just thought Ava was a busy kid. Reed puts her to shame.IMG_0488 Saturday evening we attended a banquet to celebrate Zach winning the teacher of the month award. It was a really nice, fairly newish venue here in town and it was awesome. The food was great and it was just a really nice time to recognize so many teachers who work so hard. Zach was eligible to win the grand prize, and got through to the semi-finals, but picked a red apple instead of a green one so grand prize for him!IMG_0501IMG_0496

Even though he didn’t win the grand prize, my door prize ticket was drawn for a $50 gas card! He’d won one when he was selected (along with the Mrs. Baird’s goodies and a $200 Wal-mart card). Every teacher who won was also given 52 vouchers for a free Mrs. Baird’s product, so essentially we have free bread for a year! They also had a table full of all kinds of Mrs. Baird’s goodies we got to load up on. In between all of this and my win the night before, we had a pretty good weekend! And we got to have a little date night which was fun, too!IMG_0503  

On Sunday…

Sunday was a rough day for Ava. I’m still not sure exactly what happened, but she was playing with this toy flute, and while I was changing Reed, I heard her start SCREAMING. Somehow she’d jammed it onto the top of her mouth. She says it was the green end, but I’m not so sure. Anyway, she just kept crying and crying and I finally looked in her mouth, and there was a 1.5 inch long gash along the roof of her mouth and it was bleeding. It wasn’t bad enough to be gushing out of her mouth but it wasn’t pretty. She couldn’t eat most of the day and was pretty miserable. After a dose of tylenol, she perked up for a bit, but she was still hurting. :( IMG_0526IMG_0527

All in all, I’d say we had a pretty good week!!!

  1. Oh no to the paint ON the couch. How do you even clean that up? I hope your couch isn't ruined! You kids are just too cute!
