Hello Karyn!!!

August 25-31

We had two days before the next big excitement… so lets jump right in. We started with the Wild Kratts and sharks.101_9364 101_9365

Dinosaur story starters…101_9366

And a sneak off to Target to continue our back to school/new year shopping. Every year the kids get a new pencil box and crayons and the like. This year the twins are getting their own markers and pencil crayons – no wax and Emanuel gets wax and pencil crayons. I love the pencil box we found for Echo… set up for her to colour it!101_9367 101_9371

We had a visit from a lovely fairy princess.101_9369

And created a man out of the puzzle shaped blocks a sweet friend back in the UK sent us years ago!101_9370

Our time in the pool is winding down so I gave up and let them go crazy clothes on and everything.101_9374 101_9375 101_9376

Midweek we were prepped and ready for our next visitor… after a game of Munchkin (the twins can be quite brutal!).101_9377

So, the new guest fresh from Canada… AUNTY KARYN!!101_9378

The next few days were full of fun: boardgames, parks and playing around. We even left the twins home alone with strict instructions on how to use the phone, what not to do (touch the kitchen), and Minecraft on the computers.101_9379 101_9381 101_9385 101_9388 101_9390

So much fun and we squeezed in SOME schoolwork. And decided to delay our back to school until after we say good bye.

And then on Sunday night we went over to Chris and Renee’s for dinner, bonfire and a good visit. (somewhere in the week we ALSO went to a Norwex party at Karen’s so Karyn met Karen as well!).101_9392

Mystro the kitten made a nice showing as well. Karyn had been missing her kitties.101_9395

It has been so much fun having a dear friend for over a decade meet the people who have become dear here. Add in baby and kitten and talk about cuteness. Oh and a fire for the menfolk to play with.101_9393 101_9396 101_9397 101_9398 101_9399 101_9401 101_9407 101_9408 101_9409
