Summer Break - Week #1

Last week was my first week of summer vacation! We had great weather and lots of fun!

Monday we went to story time at the Avon library. Jennifer took the kids to at least one story time a week at various libraries during the year so I let her keep signing Parker up! I like that he gets to socialize with other kids and it's fun to go to! After we went to the library we stopped in at the park in Avon and played until it started to sprinkle. Then Parker and I headed to Pizza King (choo choo pizza). Then Parker took a three and a half hour nap! Apparently I wore him out on our first day off!

What better way to start vacation than with two bowls of cereal?!

Tuesday we met the girls on my team for lunch to celebrate Augusta's & Melissa's birthdays! Then we had popsicles and Parker invented his own popsicle holder from our firewood.

Wednesday we went to the neighborhood pool and swam! It was so nice to not have to clean or maintain the pool...I could just relax! Parker had the toddler pool to himself and the weather was perfect!

Thursday we went to Hummel Park in Plainfield! We played on the playground & splash pad. Then we had a picnic and played at the creek!

Clint's job is on four ten hour days so he is off on Fridays this summer! Last Friday he finished up the fence so Parker and I met Jennifer and Ady at Skyzone in Plainfield. He had so much fun jumping!

Over the weekend we played outside, got a haircut, ate popsicles, went to some garage sales, played at the pool, and took some nice naps!

Sure! Let's have a picnic in the garage!

I also had one school related job I wanted to do this summer: level my classroom library! I managed to get it all done in the first week since he napped pretty well! I wasn't looking forward to lugging all my books home but I was glad to do it from home instead of going into my classroom. I didn't count how many books I had but let's just say it was A LOT! Parker obviously helped look through them!

I'd say that was an awesome way to start summer vacation!
