End of school year marathon part 1

Well here it is almost July and I have not posted much.  May and June felt like we were running a marathon trying to cram as much into the end of the school year as possible and then shift into a summer schedule that was planned in February (man those summer camps fill up fast!). Add on that the house is on the market and wen have showings and open houses and our days are pretty full shuffling kids, working, cleaning, sleeping and eating.  

Super hero day at school, Taryn was a princess super hero and Tali was a hello kitty super hero

The weather started getting warmer and the girls found much fun rolling down the driveway in my garden cart/stool.

Tali supposedly had a round of pink eye so she spent the day with me visiting clinics and going out to lunch.  

Taryn's note to Tali when she was out with pink eye- so sweet!

And as standard lots of love for Wylie.

First day of camp

First day of summer camp and the girls were out the door on time and ready for the day.  This is the first year they are going to Riverside however we have scheduled a variety of camps over the summer to hopefully keep the boredom of camp at bay.  New shoes, no uniform and plenty of sunscreen - let the fun begin!

Today is the five year anniversary of Opa's passing.  So much has changed that I wonder if he would recognize us.  He would be happy to see us on the boat, it is not Indonesia but it would definitely be a source of enjoyment for him to be out on Lake Michigan, I don't believe that is something he ever did.   He would also have loved to see the girls' kindergarten graduations and the songs they sang.  I just know he would have wanted to arrive super early so he could have a seat in the front row.  Opa would be teasing me about having Connor and Elise watch the girls while I work, he would have said "who is watching who?".  The memories are not as vivid as they used to be and that is what I miss the most.  On occasion the girls will ask questions about opa and an "I am not sure" will have to suffice.  Time certainly makes the void left behind feel smaller but the absence is felt every day.  Miss you dad.

Alma mater

Visit to the old stomping ground with the family.  We enjoyed lunch at pizza bobs (chipati is $7.99 - wonder what is was 18 years ago?).  Much has changed over the past 18 years but it was definitely a good time.

On Saturday and Sunday the weather was extremely warm, warm enough for a slip and slide party with friends.

On Friday I picked up the girls a little early (playing hooky) and we went to the grocery store.  Since I had bend gone all week for work they were indulged a little at the store and boy were they excited!  An Icee for Taryn and a donut for Tali.  They also picked up some snacks for the car ride to Detroit.

A trip to the Amish store during a house showing. 



Definitely a child who strives for her things to be "just so".  It is really fascinating to watch her do her homework and work on things with such a focus.
