Summer has been here for nearly a month now…. how is time flying past this quickly?! On June 2nd the boys finished up their year of kindergarten. Check out how much they changed in just one school year – top is their first day of school and the bottom is their last day!
After picking them up from school, I promptly took all 4 kids to Sonic for an ice cream treat – the start of a new “Last Day” tradition! Yay!
We also worked on our annual Summer Bucket List!
On the List:
Get a dog – Done!
Sleepover at Aunt Laura and Uncle Mason’s – Done!

Diggity Time with Dad for Lily

Learn how to swim (J, T & C)
As you can see, they’ve already checked off a few, and the boys are working hard at that “learn to swim” one!
“Diggity Time with Dad” is something the boys do with Nick throughout the year. Each month one of them gets to go hang out with just Nick for a couple of hours. It might be to play mini-golf, or just going to Dunkin’ Donuts for a drink and donut. Lily’s not currently on the rotation though, because she spends her Fridays with Nick during the school year! During the summer though, she doesn’t get as much (if any) one on one time with Nick, so she’ll get a Diggity Time this summer!
I don’t get a whole lot of one on one time with the boys, and thought a friend had a great idea when I saw “date days” for each of her kids on their bucket list! I’m excited to take the boys out individually some evening for some ice cream and chatter 🙂
And yes, I’ll post pictures of our new dog soon! His name is Gus, and he’s adorable!
