Part of the reason for ensuring that there were no extra papers floating around is that the three youngest will be doing school on Monday. (No rest for the weary!) They are still academically (never mind socially) quite a ways behind their peers. We've backtracked them a bit and are having them work on math and all things English reading, writing and comprehension related. Hopefully by September they will at the very least be where they left off at school if not further than when they finished the school year in June.
So to celebrate summertime, we had a wiener roast on Friday night. Complete with a marshmallow overdose for dessert!
They don't look overly thrilled in this photo (taken with my phone), but believe me, hotdogs and marshmallows are a summer highlight!
Although I am sure the four youngest are hoping for lots of excitement, I am hoping for some quiet days, and long quiet evenings. A mom CAN hope can't she!?
