I had an open house for Preston's kindergarten class last night.
Side note, how is that even possible?!
Then today Preston had his meet and greet. He got to meet his teacher. See his classroom. Complete a scavenger hunt to learn the different areas of the classroom. And make his kindergarten t-shirt.
It was a lot of fun!
Not going to lie, me and my OCD had a little bit of a hard time not taking over his t-shirt project and going all let's do it the way I think we should! I kept having to shove that OCD down and keep asking Preston what he wanted to do next!
The finished project!
Me and my big almost kindergartner!
Preston and Addi! They are in the same class! I'm so excited because they did two years of preschool together and then had VBS together this summer and now kindergarten!
Preston wanted to turn the little circle he'd put at the top into a sun!
My Dad was on vacation so my parents were up at the river for the week. The extended an invite to us and knowing that we probably wouldn't have another chance to get up there this summer we packed our bags and headed up for the night.
On time I should add. So I rewarded myself with a frappuccino!
It was a little bit chilly when we got up there. It had stormed hard the night before and was still recovering.
Unloading the car and organizing everything was quite the task I should add. Mostly because when I packed I very literally just threw everything into bags. No folding or cleanly putting things away. It was a giant mess. That's what happens when you decide to go to bed instead of packing the night before and then wake up knowing that you have about an hour to get the bags packed and car loaded before the littlest needs her first nap!
We hung around for the day. We ventured out for a walk. Checked out the beach. Preston threw rocks. Liv hung out in her new stroller.
We headed back to wait for my Dad. He'd had to run home to retrieve the dog that escaped the yard while my brother was at his girlfriends. And to pick up some things that they needed for the rest of the week.
I was eating a pack of Star Wars fruit snacks and set them down to grab something. When I came back Preston had set them up as a battle!
Not long after he arrived there was another storm. Not as bad as the one the night before. But bad enough that it hailed. In August. What is that?! Preston was much more excited about it than I was!
After dinner we got dressed to head out for another walk.
Livi got all dressed in one of Preston's outfits from when he was a baby!
We walked down to the beach. And while Preston and Grandpa were throwing rocks, Liv hung out with Grandma.
My Mom noticed something in the water and we headed over to investigate. It was a beaver! Of course we had to follow it along the beach to see where it was headed. Preston was so into it! When we said we couldn't follow it anymore he wanted to hike through mud and mess and private property to keep watching it!
Grandpa and Grandma and their first grandson and granddaughter!
Me and my littles.
We turned in early for the night. Everyone was exhausted.
Except Preston. Who had led Grandpa around for a much longer walk when we all got back. He took him back down to the boat dock. Then around to the beach we had just left. And back up. Grandpa was tired. Preston not so much.
We did all eventually fall asleep though!
The next day was much nicer! So after breakfast we headed out for a walk! It was so beautiful!
Livi slept through the walk but when she woke up she was just so happy. And cute!
After lunch Preston got to head out on the boat with Grandpa and Grandma.
Then we hightailed it home for Preston's first soccer practice of the season.
Caymbree had a birthday! A third birthday. At the lake even. We had a blast! Preston the most I think! Since they had a kayak on the beach and he has been wanting to go for a ride on one of those with Brad! So of course they did and I took a total of no photos. Boo! Plus there was a paddleboat. And the beach. They even played volleyball. Seriously. Preston had so much fun with Cohen!
Preston and Brad even got to go for a boat ride and Preston and Cohen rode the tube!
While Liv and I hung back on the beach with Miss Caymbree. Who was nice enough to let Liv borrow her sun hat!
We all had a great time! Thanks for the invite friends!
