A great time of year! Still feels like summer, of course 🙂
I’m incredibly sorry for the very long absence! We’ve had so many things going on, and I’ve been falling further and further behind with posts and updates! I wish I had more time to write, but I’ll do my very best. As always, thank you so much for your patience. Now, without further ado, here are a few glimpses into our life for the past month!
Gosh, I love these kids. They are just amazing 🙂
Since the kids are too young to understand why they can’t stare at the sun, and they don’t care about staring at a cardboard box (and I never bothered to search for eclipse-viewing glasses), we celebrated the solar eclipse by watching informative Youtube videos and singing this song:
Hooks game on Saturday night. What a blast!
Eliza’s jam came on, so it was time to dance!
The kids had an excellent first week of school! And their teachers are fantastic 🙂
We’ve been reading a short version of “Jabberwocky” since they were very little, and this is the result:
School starts tomorrow! We had a thoroughly awesome summer, but I’m so glad that things will soon settle back into more of a routine. I like the structure! The kids are ready for it, too! I’m hoping to be able to blog on a more consistent basis once the kids start going to bed earlier.
On Sunday afternoon, we attended a production of one of my absolute favorite shows–Fiddler on the Roof! It was excellent!! Eliza loved most of it (she got a little antsy toward the end), but Jed loved every minute! Well, except for the last 10 mins when he fell asleep. I was so proud of both of them. The house manager had so many nice things to say about their good behavior! Thanks also to Jimmy for being such a good sport about my theatre enthusiasm.
Of course, I tried my best to get them pumped about the show by introducing them to all the music and watching the movie beforehand. It actually worked pretty well! It was fun to watch their little faces light up when their favorite songs began.
Eliza loves “Matchmaker” best, and Jed’s favorite is “If I Were a Rich Man,” which is nearly impossible for him to sing. But he tried his best and insisted on wearing a Tevye costume, complete with homemade hat. I thought my heart was gonna explode!
YAY! I’ve finally had time to go through pictures! Thanks for your patience, dear readers. We’re having an outstanding summer, but these long days leave me pretty exhausted at the end of the day. Blogging feels overwhelming, even though it’s one of my favorite things to do! Without further ado, here are some pictures of our adventures. So many memories!
It was such a wonderful trip! We really missed Jimmy, but we loved our time with friends and family.
When we arrived back in Corpus, we went to the library to stock up on new books. The kids were super excited about this one:
Yesterday afternoon, we saw Beauty and the Beast at the Harbor Playhouse. Ahhhh the theater…my happy place! The kids had a blast!
That’s all for now! Thanks for making it all the way to the end 🙂
