Here is some of what we stayed busy with between all the visitors and fun in August.
I turn away for a few minutes and somehow without getting out of the cart the kids managed to get umbrellas out and open them. Gave me a good laugh when I turned around.
But I just found this one on Brennan's phone. :) It is from the last day of lessons, the only time he got to come and watch a little.
We went swimming with the whole family for Ella's birthday on their last day in town, but somehow I left these out of that post. Tatum decided she wanted to do the diving board. I wasn't super sure about it but Papa said he would take her if she could show him she could jump into the pool into deep water from a higher edge then the drain type edge you climb out on. She did it so he took her over to try. I was so nervous for her! I have always been such a water wuss ever since I was little. There is no way I would have been attempting the diving board at age 4. Her first try was unsuccessful. She got to where she would need to let go of the bars and turned right around. haha
She talked to Papa and then tried again immediately.
Success! She did it a million more times, she loved it!
Day 2, outside the preschool, in new PAW Patrol shirts from Grandma.
Out for lunch on day 2.
Some days Tatum does quiet time really well. Other day she will NOT leave me alone. This day was the latter. Oh boy.
Whew. And just like that summer is over. It was busy, it was crazy, it was packed full of fun. It'll be kind of nice to have things slow down (although who am I kidding? We're about to have a baby, I highly doubt things will be slowing down at all!) but also kind of sad to be starting the routine of the rest of our lives. Gone are the days of only having kids at home with no real schedule we are committed to keep.
