Nature Camp

Zara and Lexi went to nature day camp at the Yakima Arboretum last week. It was their first time and they had SO much fun. Every day they came home absolutely filthy and wet with sand in every crevice. After the first couple of days of sand pouring out of their clothes all over the house, I started making them undress in the garage and take a shower before they touched anything inside. This week of nature camp was focused on art so the girls made all sorts of art out of natural materials, caught butterflies and tadpoles, painted themselves with berries, went on exploration hikes, had picnic lunches and played lots of funny games. They are already begging to go back.

Kinder Grad

To be honest, I didn't even realize that Kinder graduation was a thing. They are just moving up a grade at the same school, right? I still don't entirely get it. As it turned out, the girls had their birthday celebration the same day as graduation. It was over 100 degrees outside and the kids were just coming in from recess outside so the ice cream cups, cookies and mini water bottles were a hit. 

Some parents brought flowers and balloons to graduation. I say, you are going to have to accomplish a bit more for that, ha ha. I taught the girls to sing "schooooools out for summer!" So that's even better, right?

Big Six!

My babies are six. Six seems so much more mature than five. Especially with a year of Kindergarten finishing this week. We had a fun luau party yesterday in our backyard to celebrate. Love my funny, sweet and silly big girls.
