Five girls in one family= a lot of grandkids/cousins (there is even one missing here)
#2 House Projects
Redoing the living room was a totally unexpected, but very welcome highlight. It makes me happy to see this sight every time I walk in the front door.
#3 Soccer and Baseball
This was the summer of championships. As parents, we could not have had more fun watching the kids rock their individual sports.
Caitlin's soccer team had a perfect season, and capped it off by winning the state championship.Hunter's baseball team won the league championship, and Hunter was awarded the Golden Glove (he made an awesome double play).
We love camping, but only got to go twice this summer (see above; sports are time consuming!). It was a blast, nonetheless. It's so nice to unplug and enjoy nature, even for just a few days.
#5 Minnesota State Fair
Okay, we haven't actually done this one yet, but it's on the agenda for this weekend. A trip to the state fair, in the roasting August heat, with a million other sweaty Minnesotans is the annual capstone of our summer. Fried food on a stick? Here I come!
What do you have planned for the last few days of summer?
