VBS

This week, Aedan had VBS. This was the first year he was old enough to go and I was a little nervous about how he would like it.

If it were up to him, he would love to just stay home and play all day, everyday. He doesn’t like new situations much. This VBS is at the same church he goes to preschool at, and I knew a bunch of his friends were going to be there, so I hoped he would have fun.

Jon had to take him the first morning since Adelaide had an early speech appointment. Jon said Aedan lost it when he dropping him off. I was nervous about what I would find when I picked him up later that morning.

Turns out, he LOVED it. He has been so excited to go every morning and when I drop him off. My usually super clingy child has given me a quick hug and then run off to his group before I can even say bye.

Every afternoon, he wants to talk about it and his new best friends (aka, the two high school boys that have been helping out his group). He keeps asking if we can invite them over to play soon. He keeps telling me, he LOVES school. Ha! He may have a rude awakening when he goes back in September and all the high school helpers aren’t around.

This is him, with his new BFF and his good friend Keagan. He said they were playing monsters.

I think he may be a little bummed when he realizes VBS is over. I am so thankful, we have found such a wonderful community out here and great places for our kids to get involved. I know this will be something he looks forward to each summer and maybe one day he will be that high school volunteer and become someone else’s BFF.

Phone Pictures

I haven’t been taking too many pictures, even on my phone. I need to get better about that! Here are a few I’ve taken recently…

We had a really bad storm come through last week. Lots of rain and very strong winds. In our neighborhood, there were many fences, roofs and play sets damaged. Luckily our house/yard didn’t have any damage. Just lots of leaves and branches in the yard. Aedan hates thunder, so of course at the first sign of the storm, he was out of his room. I finally gave him my spot in bed and slept in his bed. This is what I found in the morning.

Adelaide loves to carry things around. Jon and Aedan were out one evening, so she and I did a little shopping. She wanted to bring her bag with her in the car. She had one of my bracelets, hair detangler and a toothbrush in her Easter basket.

On Sunday, I took the kids to get donuts so Jon could sleep in. Aedan wasn’t too happy about getting his picture taken, but he was super excited about donuts!

Earlier this week we spend the day up in Round Rock with my parents. We had a lot of fun! Both kids love playing with all the little people my mom kept from when my sister and I were little. The old little people are so much better than they are now! My grandmothers came over that afternoon and we all had a great visit.

Other than going to the pool, we have just been doing a lot of playing. Aedan loves to play with his Legos upstairs and we try to get out an play in the backyards every evening.

Summer Days

We had a pretty low key weekend. My sister came in town for a short visit before she moves to Houston. I’m excited she will be a little closer to us!

We have pretty much spent time at the pool everyday so far, and it looks like we will be continuing that most of this week. Aedan LOVES it and is such a fish. Adelaide; not so much yet. I think the water is a little cold for her still, because she was like this at the beginning of last year too. She prefers to walk around the wadding pool or sit on the side and stick her feet in.

While my sister was here, she babysat for us and helped out a lot with the kids. So nice to have an extra set of hands to play and entertain them!

Jon and I started a new show this week and we both really like it…

We are going to finish up season one of Orphan Black just in time to start season two of this hilarious show!
