More Summer Happenings

We have spent a lot of time in the pool this summer. Usually by July I am burned out but I feel like we are still loving every minute of it. I can't believe we are already in July!

More swim team! On the night of the swim team party they had a money dive. They threw money all over the bottom of the pool and the kids got to collect as much as they could. It was a little stressful because it was hard to keep up with where my kids were with so many kids in the pool. They did great though and thought it was the best thing ever. 

This summer the women in our small group decided to get together each Tuesday and make lunches for MUST Ministries. We thought it would be a great learning experience for the kids. The first several weeks it was super chaotic but I think we finally have it figured out now and we are all enjoying it.

One morning after church we decided to take the kids to the mountain for a hike. Five miles later we were all nice and tired. During our hike we crossed over a creek and let the kids play in it. Hayes fell in and was soaked head to toe! He wasn't too happy about this but the kids loved getting that little break in our hike.

July 3rd we did our annual fireworks fun! There were tons of bounce houses, bouncy slides, a zip line, and a mechanical bull. Reese rode the mechanical bull and did the zip line. She had a blast! Both boys did the tall slide. They had a blast playing with their friends and watching the fireworks. That night they went home with Gigi and Gran for the rest of the weekend. They went to play at their pool and then went to a G'Braves game with them the night of the 4th where they got to see fireworks once again. 

We did a lot of cheering for the women's USA soccer team! What a fun championship game it was!! Reese particularly enjoyed watching these games. She said it was her lucky earrings that helped them win!

I have one more post coming of our Atlanta FUN DAY!
