Last week of summer camp!

This is the boys' last week of summer camp!

They're at an art camp all week - Logan is loving it! Callum has taken some time to warm up to it (he had a rough start on Monday morning), but seems to be liking it ok now. He prefers the clay modeling/sculpture projects more than the sketching and drawing. :)

The first half of the day is focused on an Animé/Cartooning theme while the second half of the day is focused on a Star Wars theme. Thus, some of the Pokémon and Star Wars characters you see in their sketches here. :) They're both doing fabulous work and we are enjoying everything that they're telling us and bringing home to share each day!

(These sketches aren't copied or traced! I think they are given some pictures as reference to take direction from but otherwise need to draw them on their own)

Back-to-school Shopping

Headed to the store to get some back-to-school shopping done.

Naturally, we left with new sunglasses. 😎

Frappuccino Friday

The boys finishing their baking class yesterday, with an awesome raspberry mousse cake and ice cream. They decided to save the cakes to take home so that Daddy could enjoy some too. :)

After, we celebrated the end of the week with their new favorite drink, frappuccinos (essentially a milkshake!). They also got back out on the ranch (after several missed weeks) to get some horseback riding in! All in all, a great ending to a fun (but long/sick) week. :)

The boys got their hair cut today (finally!!). We saw another boy walking by with longer hair in front/on top and shaved in the back and I pointed it out to the kids - and they both said they wanted to try that out! I was shocked, since they HATE getting their hair cut and have loved keeping their hair long. So, that's what they told Woody (their barber) and that's what he did!

I couldn't get any good side shots where you see how short the back is, because they kept moving around and wouldn't let me get any close ups. But, I did get a fair number of cute ones of them together, just the same. 😍

He's a working man!

Logan has his first (official/paying/not from Mom or Dad) job!!! He's feeding the neighbor's fish and cleaning the pond for the next few months while they are away. It's a short walk down the hill from us, and the job is easy enough, so it's really quite perfect for him to take on, on his own.

I can't tell you how giddy with excitement he is about this - it's really pretty cute. 😍

Baking Class

This week, the boys have been taking their baking class at Sur La Table. They've been enjoying all sorts of sweets - but funny enough, so far anyway, I think they like the cooking class they did a few weeks ago, more than the baking class this week! 😃

Catching up on old flicks

Since it's summer, and we've all been sick, I thought it would be fun to watch some of the old movies I grew up with.

But! Netflix and Amazon don't carry a lot of my favorites 😱 thankfully, the good ol' library came through with several options for us. 😉
