Summer Vacation Begins Again

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Like many of you, my kiddos are basking in the glow of summer break.  We are 4 days in.


Boredom doesn’t come quite as fast as it did when they were 6.   They can read now, and play with the neighborhood gang without my constant attention. and of course they have devices.

This was their end of the year pic.



m&m last day



Maggie’s last day of Elementary school was this year so I am a bit melancholy.  It’s middle school next year for her.


I found this old blog post from 2010, the first summer of our shop.   Wow the years fly past don’t they?



Happy summer to us all!

Summer Break Begins

Monday, June 7th, 2010

My kids started Summer break this week.  They are only 5 and 6, so summer break doesn’t mean a whole lot to them.  They’ll go to summer school everyday and we have a great high school babysitter that will pick them up and bring them home for an afternoon of play with the neighbor kids.  It’s a good life they lead really.


The only problem is that the sitter doesn’t start until next week.  Boo.  So…the kids hung out at the shop with me this afternoon.  My kids love the shop in small doses…a whole afternoon is way too long.   Let’s see…what did we do?


We messed with displays

We ate snacks on the patio

We colored at the counter

We watched Alvin and the Chipmunks on the big wall

We played in the grass next to the road. I watched from the window...they were safe:)

They walked down the sidewalk to see if the snow cone lady was there...she wasn't

Their Dad has them for the evening.  All in all a good day, although I think I’ll pawn them off on an unsuspecting neighbor tomorrow…don’t tell anyone.
