And a couple overly friendly squirrels in the front yard. I wish I could have gotten a picture of the black one but it stayed under the vehicles. This little grey one came so close that I had to tell the girls not to touch it!!!
After the parade we went back to Steve’s house to have lunch. Yummy hot dogs, fruit, chips… and Phineas and Ferb! I love how they have a whole entertainment room set up in the double portion of their garage in the summer! So fun!
Sadly my cold went into overtime so after enjoying some fun in the sun it was time to head home and myself to bed. By Saturday evening I was feverish and Ken was adamant I was not going to church. Sunday morning HE felt under the weather and that put the final nail in the coffin for us making the Sunday School planning session that morning. Thankfully the woman in charge was willing to email me information.
I am just so pleased we managed a day with Steven and Quinn. It has been a while and this parade seems to be our new tradition with them!!! Be sure to check out the overflow! There was just too much to see HERE.
Sunday is always an up and down day… but we totally lucked out with Sunday afternoon COMPANY! Lily Bean and our girls are fast friends already and this time Bree brought Quinn!!! Talk about a great afternoon!
We had two rather important completions! Trinity finished another of her Pre K books and GAVIN moved onto his grade 3 math. A little ahead of schedule and with some things we will refocus on later, but what a confidence boost!!!
On Tuesday we started our true discussion on Lions and what we know already about them. I was quite impressed by the amount of facts the kids already have about them. We plan on learning a bit about Kenya and Tanzania as well, with some books, lapbooks, worksheets and random shows I think we will do just fine on our 3rd major animal unit!!
I am sure there will be another picture blog with the rest of our Lily and Quinn time, but I hope you enjoyed the pictures that I have posted! It is so nice to visit with our friends be it planned or surprise drop ins!
