Yes, catching up once again! I typed my Birthday post for Simone and realized I had just skipped right over all of the other fun stuff we've been doing the last month or so!
So to play catch up......
We've had a few fun outings with our FCC (Families with Children from China) friends. A large and boisterous group of us headed to Ripley's Aquarium one hot Sunday afternoon. We had a lot of fun with all of our pals and got to visit with some very cool sea creatures!
Simone ended an amazing school year and was sooo very sad to see 1st grade pass! She was so lucky to have a truly great (kind, caring yet still tough) teacher and really sweet and wonderful classmates!
Well...the 2 of us and one little Simone...oh well - maybe for our 20 year celebration we'll have quiet time!
Sammy-Wei & Simone both love the carousel...Sam says "up...down...up..."
We spent a day at Ijams Nature center with friends. The kids built some cool fairy houses and we went for a great nature hike to find a secret pond!
We decided to join a pool this year! And since the kids go to summer day camp at the same center it worked out to be a great decision! The kids have made so many friends, both at the camp and the pool (we have too) and it gives us something to do on these unbearably hot summer days! And Sammy...well, he is a fish - Simone too! Oh what fun the last month there has been!
We also had an FCC pool party gathering. It was just a a blast to see all the kids swimming and splashing and just enjoying the water and each other! (yes...that would be Sammy hanging upside down!)
The mermaid of the family....
Below is the sweet and adorable Birthday girl!
So I think we have finally caught up on our past month or so of our fun and busy days...
More to come soon!
