June was the last month of our school year. We had accumulated all of our hours and then some, so I decided to relax our schedule a bit and give our learning time room a makeover. What I thought would take a weekend, took two weeks from beginning to end. But, most of that two weeks was spent sorting through our learning time closet and organizing all of my shelves of supplies.
Once a month we have grandparents come and babysit the kiddos so Jason and I can take a little break. Grandpa Ron decided to teach the kiddos chess while he was here. The boys both enjoy the game, but Bulldozer LOVES it.
Bulldozer is very big into celebrations. He finds any excuse he can to gather people together to have fun and eat great food, In June he decided we were going to have a Summer Celebration. We invited quite a few people, but the end of June is a very busy time of year and only a few were able to come. Still Bulldozer was thrilled.
Everyone met at a local park with a playground and beach.
Sunshine was thrilled Grandpa Ron came.
Even the littlest of friends enjoyed the playground.
Everyone LOVED "the spinning ride," as the kiddos call it.
They definitely burned some energy while playing.
After a bit of play, everyone gathered round the picnic table for summer salads, turkey sandwiches, fruits, chips and desserts.
It just so happened that the drive-in was playing Inside Out and Jurassic World a few days after our party. The opportunity wasn't one to be missed, so we piled all the kiddos in van, including a friend and went to the drive-in. It was a first time for our kiddos. Jason and I thought they'd fall asleep before Jurassic World started, but almost everyone was awake and was determined to watch it.
Everyone did so well while waiting.
Princess was particularly excited as she desperately wanted to see Inside Out.
I worried how Sunshine would do at the drive-in, but once she was cuddled up with Mommy she did great. She fell asleep during the first show, and again during part of the second, but settled right in again both times!
I can't forget to mention another huge accomplishment this month for one of our kiddos. Sunshine is now putting together 12 piece puzzles! This is HUGE and definitely not expected. We're so proud of her! Everyone is growing up so fast.
