Play date with Temperence

First off, a stellar outfit of the day ensemble...

 We headed down to the Sneeds in the morning for some play time there.
 Then I took the girls back to our place until Chris got off work.
 Movie time wouldn't be complete without some popcorn... Temperence insisted.
 Cuddle bugs!
 Shady parking spot
 Temperence loves the hammock chair...
 Molly, getting her twirl on...

BBQ at the Jodoins

I made a fruit salad.  All of the dads got into the water with the kids while the moms managed to stay dry!  The planets must have been aligned.  The best part was wrapping up some leftover wine (see last pic).  That's an empty white wine bottle filled with red wine.  The secure topper is a ziploc locked down with some heavy duty scotch tape.  Yup, that happened.

Wakes up sloooooowly...

Some mornings the furry kids wake me up before the human one does.  Since it's now officially summer I decided to hold off on checking in on her.  Then I thought I heard her talking so I checked the web cam.  Yup, just chilling in her room with some toys and playing.

Reading time

Molly and I crawled into the hammock and she insisted on reading to me.  It's hard to tell how much she's actually reading and how much she simply has memorized.  

Last day of school

Molly's last day at Santa Clara Parents Nursery School was today.  We are definitely going to miss this school as it has been a true community of great families.  I served as Vice President of the board this past year and it felt really good to be involved and to give back to the school that has given us so much.  I am so happy we found this parent participation co-op because it gave me a chance to be in the classroom.  Not only did I get to really know Molly's classmates, but the other parents as well.  Molly informed me she will be going back next year, but after her kindergarten class so she can help out.  The little yellow house with so much love will be missed.

Molly dressing up one last time...
 Last circle time is a special one done outdoors on the parachute.
 Teacher Cheryl and Teacher Nancy presented all of the kids with a time capsule they had made at school.  Inside was a piece of paper stating what they want to be when they grow up.
Molly said, "When I grow up I want to be like my daddy because he does tickle fights, he washes stuff with water, and he plays until dinner time... and he has fun with me."

Happy Hollow with Leo

Molly and I met up with Amy and Leo at Happy Hollow today.  The kids had a great time running around.
