Music to My Ears

"Where are the kids?"
"In the fort."

Suh-weet Summer 2012

Last summer was our Spectacular Summer 2011, so we christened this summer our Suh-weet Summer 2012.  We kept the same categories, and we're making good progress--already the kids have checked off swim lessons, a couple of movies, typing lessons, and the items below. 
Sweetie began her summer youth Broadway choir and has already secured a solo in "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off." She also finished with her art classes. In her first class, they did Picasso guitars from collage and tempera paints. In her next class, they did watercolor zebras and oil pastel zebras. 
Mister started his golf lessons and has his basketball clinic this week. Saturday was his stake cub scout day camp. Here's some pics of Mister with his homemade kazoo, masks, and doing magic tricks in the parent show: 

And we've been doing our best to hit all of the local pools. This week we added ice cream to the mix on the way home for a perfect summer day.
 On this week's agenda is to finish cleaning out the closets and drawers . . . not quite as fun as swimming :)

"Nothin' comes close to the golden coast" ~Katy Perry

Last week we headed to the Golden Coast for an extended weekend to visit grandparents. While there, we packed a lunch and made a stop at the beach, of course. It was a little chilly, but that didn't stop the kids from getting in the water. H took a few rolls in the water and didn't think anything of it. J, me, Louie, and Kathy mostly tried to soak in the sun and read, but Louie did manage to get his kite going and I joined the kids in the sand-castle building. We also tried to enjoy being outside as much as possible--we ate outside, we went to the park, I bought the kids bubbles and a kick ball (and then Mister spent some time climbing trees to retrieve the kick ball). It was a fun and relaxing weekend away.

How many P kids does it take to shine the windows?

Apparently, it's the most popular of the Saturday jobs. In other news, we went through an entire one of these this week.
So I don't need to tell you what else we've been doing besides chores. Maybe next week will be a little more exciting.

At Segullah today . . .

talking about autobiography/memoir and blogs. Maybe not such a fascinating topic (to others!), but, after going to bed early last night because of sickness, it's all I could come up with this morning to make my deadline :) Especially with H pulling on my elbow, asking if my "masterpiece" was finished yet. But join me, anyway!
