Another double week, as I know we are all so crazy busy in the summer. Speaking of which, where did it go? I think I only spend half the summer enjoying it, and I end up mourning the loss of it through the other half. Alright, alright, I’ll stop being a downer. Let’s get to it.
august 14 – As the week post fires wrapped up, we headed off to a charity BBQ to help the victims. It was an amazing turnout! So great to see how cool this community is in a situation like this.
august 15 – Mr. F seems to be without clothes more often than not these days – gotta love the summer! He’s also been obsessed with temp tattoos lately. Thank goodness for Deals Surplus store! Here he is showing off his belly ‘Dinosaur Train’ as he calls it.
august 16 – Something must have clicked, because all of a sudden she is really into colouring. The girl who wouldn’t touch crayons if I begged her (and if she did, everything on the entire page was purple scribbles) can now spend hours sitting and colouring. Sweet bliss (for everyone).
august 17 – I have no idea how this started, but whenever we finish solving this puzzle, we all have to dance on it. It’s the law.
august 18 – When he puts on his sister’s boots, get out of the way!
august 19 – Another charity BBQ for the victims of the fires, this time at the police station. My kids will never say no to a hot dog, so it was a win win.
august 20 – Sometimes being 2 (or 4, or 30 something, for that matter) can be hard. On all of us.
august 21 – This night was a huge deal for me. My closest friends from high school and I had a falling out over something very stupid, just as high school was wrapping up. It ended up that we didn’t see each other again for over 15 years. This night I got to reconnect with some of them, and it was amazing. Man, teenagers can be ridiculous sometimes. I had a blast, stayed out WAY too late, and paid for it via my teeny early birds the next day, but I’d do it again in a heartbeat <3
august 22 – Summerfolk time! I took the kids to the play area. Here’s S rockin’ a rainbow butterfly and a hippy headband in true Summerfolk fashion. She was happy about it. Honest.
august 23 – Summerfolk part two! After the first day, I noticed that tie dying is still a thing (I live in my mom cave, it seems), so I thought it would be fun to get a little crafty before we headed over to the festival. Mr. F decided that he couldn’t wait for me to get the shirt out, and decided to tie dye himself. He is fired.
august 24 – The kids haven’t played dress up in a while, but on this rainy day, S decided to dress up F, because she said that they were going to get married. I think he looks more like a really low key superhero instead.
august 25 – Another chilly, rainy day, so we did a little painting instead of playing outside.
august 26 – Remember those tats I told you about? He’s obsessed. He wanted a whole sleeve of these – I cut him off after the final finger tattoo. I think I can see his future.
august 27 – This chilly weather is not agreeing with me! After doing a great clean up job to get ready for Grandma and Grandpa’s arrival, they got a treat of eating lunch in front of the TV. These are exciting times for toddlers.
Phew, that’s the past two weeks in a nutshell! We are supposed to have some warmer weather ahead, so I’m hoping for at least one more beach day before we have to move on with our lives. Hopefully I’ll get to capture it as well.
Until next time xo
