start of summer

So now the kids are on summer vacation. I love it, for the most part. I love the pace. Nowhere to run to. Sleepng in late. Spending lots of time outside.
The drawback is the inevitable bickering that crops up with all the togetherness. It's stormed here every day for the past 3 days, so we were indoors more than I hoped over this weekend.

The last day of school was the 19th. C & B were invited to a friend's house, so I took the younger guys to the lake to get some excitement and energy out.
Of course, I took tons of pictures. Here are some of my favorites:

We met up with the other kids later that evening to have our annual end of school ice cream cones:

I've managed to sneak some scrapping in too. This was an accomplishment since I had my sister's kids all weekend. So we had 8 kids aged 2-11 running around. Lots of fun, but I was exhausted. No pictures either.

Here's a sneak peek of one of my LOs with my guest kit for Scrap for a Cure. This is all I can share just yet, but trust me, you want this kit!
