Happy 4th!

Our local community pool throws one helluva 4th of July event, complete with various pool and field games, a hot dog concession stand, face painting, and live music! We stopped by for a little bit of entertainment - quite fun!! 

Then had some friends over for dinner, for a more mellow and quiet time at home! Overall, a really nice day. Happy Birthday America!! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Callumism of the day

Jon and Callum went out to breakfast this morning after they dropped Logan off at camp (I went for a swim). At the diner, Callum asked Jon:

"Dad, if you had to choose one, which would you choose?"

Jon: "Peach."

Callum: "I'd choose kiwi strawberry because I'm not weird."

Summer House Rules

I decided to post house rules last week to kick off our summer. I really wanted to make sure we have a way to control the often out-of-control screen time that the kids can get themselves into. So, I put these together, with their buy in!

It hasn't taken long for the boys to try and figure out a workaround. Surprisingly, Callum is the main leader in this category. Last week, he told me he was going to skip #4 as his pass due to summer camp. I okay'd it and within seconds he said, I've also completed #3 since my summer camp was several hours of ceramics. Damn it!!

This morning, he came to me to show me a few drawings he had worked on, and said Mom, I spent 30 minutes working on these sketches. Let me show you....

I said those are great!! He then said, Oh btw - I worked on them outside in the backyard, so I've spent 30 minutes outside too! 🀣🀣🀣
