Right here’s what we did whereas the children had been residence from camp for 2 weeks!
Each boys are trying so large and tall today!!
After we bought residence from the seaside, I deliberately stored the boys residence from camps for an additional week for a few causes, the highest one being so we may all have every week to simply relax.
I’m grateful that I’m able to work once I need to work and take day off to be with them once I have to. We had a good time throughout “mommy camp” week.
I requested them for some concepts of actions of what we may do collectively, however as an alternative of itemizing all of the actions, they mentioned they actually simply wished to remain residence and play. On this over-scheduled trendy life that we reside in, that’s precisely what we did!
And over the course of the week probably the most magical factor occurred: they turned mates.
Whereas they’ve all the time performed properly collectively once we journey or often when we now have a 3rd child within the combine, they actually performed this week. It may very well be the time freedom, however I feel it’s largely that Birch is ready to play extra “large boy” video games – largely Legos! Mazen lastly let Birch maintain a few of his most prized ships (after some classes in how one can maintain them).
By the top of the second weekend, that they had performed Legos for 4 complete days straight (with a couple of breaks for screens and meals!)
Everybody was pleased about it!
Lazy Mornings + Wild Infants + Smoothie Bowls
All of us beloved the lazy mornings with nowhere to be. We lounged in robes and slippers.
Birch noticed me consuming a smoothie bowl and was excited to attempt one!
I let him eat it on the espresso desk so we may watch Wild Infants on Netflix. We beloved the collection, which was typically not unhappy or too scary (besides when the child sea turtles get eaten.)
We mentioned numerous life classes the wild animal infants discovered:
- All the time hearken to your mom
- Don’t discuss to strangers
- Keep near residence
- Lean on trusted adults in your loved ones
- Don’t get lost in public
An Further Camper
We had an additional camper for a day when our cousin Nash joined us! They boys made bubble hair and beards with the Disney wand.
And we went to Kung Fu Tea for a deal with!
Lesson number one: don’t get lost at Nona and Grandpa’s home otherwise you would possibly run into the proprietor of this snake pores and skin!!!
We additionally made mates with a pleasant praying mantis!
I began doing a bit of packing as we edge nearer to our transfer out date from our rental (first week of August).
We visited a playground….
…and did this superior HIIT exercise from YouTube since Birch had a meltdown at ACAC Kidszone the day earlier than. I LOVED this format! (And in addition miss having a Peloton at residence sooooo a lot).
Oh and there was pool time!!!
And relaxation time after enjoying too onerous.
Once I wanted a break, the leisure arrived after his workday.
I went out with mates for pina coladas at Tonic.
And took Lauren out for her birthday <3
We did have one essential subject journey I strategically scheduled: the dentist! As typical I held my breath and the boys had a cavity-free go to. Locals we love our dentist – Charlottesville Pediatric Dentistry. They’re so good with the boys.
Afterwards we glided by Goal for a couple of provides, and I went loopy trying on the organizing bins.
We additionally glided by Bricks + Minifigs for a couple of Lego equipment, together with a Darth Vader helmet that was misplaced on the pool (oops). The shop is owned by my buddy Nick, and so they buy-sell-trade all issues Lego!
