Oh well, he's enjoying doing it. Today he wrote his first guest blog post for another blog! He'll be on Two Chicks from the Sticks website sometime soon.
So, to catch you up:
1. Thursday the boys, mom, nephew Kael and I went to opening day of the Iowa State Fair. The weather was AWESOME. It was not crowded at all. A guy in a golf cart gave us a ride from our car all the way to the main concourse. The boys were very well behaved. And it was just an all-around fabulous time! I'm so glad my mom got to go to the state fair this year like she wanted!
2. I finally watched The Hunger Games movie last night. Hooray! It was very good. I had just finished rereading all the books so it was fun to see who they picked for the characters. Shawn took the boys to the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie. They enjoyed it, but said it wasn't as good as the second movie.
3. Tomorrow afternoon the boys and I will check into the Ramada Hotel with the big indoor waterpark and we'll have a big end-of-summer slumber party! Shawn and Violet will join us for a few hours, and then I also have Monday off to do something fun with them.
4. Mazy starts school next Wednesday. He received a letter today from his new teacher. She will be on maternity leave until September 10 so a substitue will start off the year. His class is looking for caterpillars. If you see any, call. :)
And finally, a few photos from this afternoon in the backyard with Vy and Bo:
I love the way Bo is holding her head to kiss her. If you could see the dirt under his nails... Hahah, I love dirt and little boys and girls!
