I sure we aren't the only family who are having troubles getting their kids to bed at a decent time. There are just too many fun activities for us to do with the beautiful weather we've been having.
Shawn defrosted some of his duck/goose meat and had the kids help make jerky. They ended up with four gallons of yummy jerky that the kids have been gobbling up like crazy.
K-sis helped me make play dough and it had to be brightly colored and glittery! This was one of our summer calendar activities. We've done a bunch of them, but not all.

We've been spending lots of time at Hoot Lake with the boat, swimming, tubing and playing on the beach. I'm pretty sure we were at the lake 4 times in the past week. I guess we are getting good use out of our swimsuits and new boat! It's hard not to go to the lake when it is only 2 miles up the road.

hhhmmmmm....looks like they may have swallowed too much lake water.
The big kids decided to use the sidewalk chalk that we made to create a giant, outdoor Monopoly board. They had Monopoly money and used bike helmets for their game pieces.
K-girl loves to help cook and anytime I'm in the kitchen she is right beside me. This week she did pancakes all by herself. She's a huge help to me and I'm so thankful that she enjoys spending time with me in the kitchen!
