Summer Vacation Begins...

Yes, today was offically our first real day of summer vacation and it's been pretty darn good I'd say!  Let me qualify that by saying it could have been better if Kyle hadn't woken me up at 5:57am to open the pieces of his new Star Wars Lego!  I opened them, sent him to his room and promptly went back to sleep for an hour!


I did manage to get a few minutes to play with my happy mail I mentioned yesterday.  I decided to try the sketch from Cardabilities since it seemed a little different than my usual style.  I used a stamp from TPC Studios and a couple of punches along with all the goodies in my Key Ingredients box and there you have it...

I had Sophia and Matthew today since Sophia seemed to be feeling better.  They stayed in their jammies for a while and just played.  Finally around 10am, I managed to convince everyone to get dressed so that I could go pay our taxes (fun times!) and pop over to Tracy's for a bit.  Stopped and got us coffee and the kids had an hour or so to play before we headed back here for lunch.


Everyone had lunch, the kids played inside and out, and Matthew napped.  I finally kicked Kyle outside at one point to get some fresh air and to get him doing something other than building Lego! 


Now, not only did Matthew nap, but Nathan is having one right now.  I let him play Wii for a bit this afternoon since he hadn't played in a few days and one minute we was playing and the next, he was sleeping!  He was up late last night and then I think he heard Kyle early this morning too, so I'll leave him for a few more minutes and then I have the uneviable task of trying to wake up that little bear!

Think it'll be a relaxing evening at home and then George has the next 5 days off.  I don't have my niece and nephew during that time either though I do have a couple of shifts at the store.  Looking forward to the break and to Canada Day festivities tomorrow!  Enjoy...

Cheers,
