Outside Time

We've been trying to make the most of the nice weather we've had the last several weeks.  It got really hot, but we couldn't put the pool up since we were getting ready to list.  Parker started climbing the fence a little last year, but has really upped his game this year.  
Esme fell asleep in the swing and almost nothing could wake her up!
 No pool, but we were able to get out the water table.  Esme loved splashing in it until Parker tipped it over.
 Outside snack time makes clean-up easy!  Esme just kept dumping the Cheerios out and Parker was saying "uh-oh" and trying to clean up.  I giggled at how much that mirrors myself and Jimmy!
 We also had another play date with our ECFE friends and are making the grand tour of area parks.  It's been nice to relax with friends during all the craziness.

Parker's Last Day of Pre-School

It's been a while since I posted, but I warned you that would happen.  I will probably backdate a bit just to keep a good timeline of posts.  Parker's LAST last day of pre-school was June 7th.  They had a short program at the end of the day.  We got to be a part of circle time, sing songs, and see a slideshow of pictures from the year.  Parker had some trouble facing forward once he saw us.
 One of the cutest songs was "Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun."  Each student got to pick out a sun and wave it up high as they sang. 
 He learned so much over the last 2.5 years going to school here and we are so grateful for the wonderful teachers and staff.  It is off to Kindergarten for this guy! Cue the tears!

Memorial Day Weekend

My blogging is going to be a bit more sporadic in the coming months.  We are preparing to put our house on the market to move closer to Parker's school and get a little more space.  We've been busy with lots of projects as we complete our preparations.  We did take some time to relax over Memorial Day weekend.

We spent Friday evening strolling around Lake Harriet.  We even got to see a huge family of geese!
 We headed outside again on Saturday to spend some time at the park.  Esme is getting a bit more adventurous is doing lots of exploring.
 We spend Sunday in the country.  We ate dinner outside and played on all the toys.
 Esme was very intrigued by Jimmy on the 4-wheeler, so she got to sit with Jimmy for a bit.
*Insert obligatory twister ride picture*
We spent the night on Sunday and were all exhausted driving home on Monday.
