2014 Summer in Review

So on Monday I posted about how much left we have to do this summer.  Despite the fact that we left so much undone, I have to admit that we definitely did have a bit of fun along the way.  Here’s what we accomplished this summer:

  • Wendy was confirmed
  • Princess Anna graduated from preschool (sniff!)
  • 1 day trip to the beach with Prince Charming to watch Wendy play sand soccer
  • VBS (x2)
  • Community Fun Day
  • 1 minor league baseball game (not including the Mother’s Day game)
  • Hosted a 2-day yard sale (made barely anything…oh well…)
  • Visited the church yard sale
  • Had fun with friends on the 4th of July
  • Visited the library (multiple occasions!)
  • Put together puzzles
  • Played Hide & Seek
  • Used our imagination to have fun
  • Played with sidewalk chalk
  • Learned a dance
  • Made a video
  • Spent some time with some of my favorite church ladies
  • Spent some time with some of my best friends in other cities and states
  • Yard Game Day
  • 1 trip to the beach with my parents and the little ones
  • Princess Anna went to Kindergarten Camp
  • Went to church camp!
  • Hands on House
  • Please Touch Museum
  • Princess Anna and Rapunzel both completed 4 swimming lessons
  • 17 locations for letterboxing
  • Princess Anna and Rapunzel read for a combined total of 1,012 minutes
  • I completed The New Dare to Disciple by Dr. James Dobson
  • Even Wendy read a few books (and she doesn’t like to read!)

In the middle of all that, Prince Charming and I began counseling and parenting classes; we worked together to vacuum every day for 6 weeks, did laundry every day for 6 weeks, and lived out of containers to rid our house of pests for 6 weeks; Rapunzel attended play therapy every week; finished one soccer season and began another; went to the dentist; completed one school year and prepared for another; taught Princess Anna to buckle herself (HOORAY!  Thanks to Wendy!); celebrated several birthdays (Princess Anna turned 5!); tended a garden; became even more involved in our church (if it’s even possible); babysat my little buddy from church); exercised; colored; did extra work for money; and went to the park.  I’m sure there was more, but I’ve listed enough.

How did you spend your summer?
