The boys had a fabulous time at summer camp this summer. They went to an outdoor day camp at a lake. They went swimming every day and did crafts, paddle boating, hiking, football...all kinds of stuff. The last day of camp was about a week and a half before school started. My mom kept them for me last week, and I took off work Monday through Wednesday this week to be with them. We had so much fun. We went to the pool every day, busted out the sidewalk chalk, took a walk on the one day it wasn't a million degrees outside, and just generally lazed around having a good time. We were supposed to take a vacation this summer, but I broke my ankle in May. I'm finally walking again, but I just wasn't getting around well enough to take them on a vacation. They took it pretty well. I'm sure we'll find somewhere to go for Spring Break or next summer.
Yesterday was the first day of school. The boys are doing Round 2 of Kindergarten. They were surprisingly not upset about it. I was a little worried about that. I know they need this socially and academically. They both seemed to have a good first day. I hope school will go much smoother this year for them. They had a really tough time last year.
I also have a funny story for your Friday! A while back we were in the car going somewhere and I looked in the rear view mirror to see Twin B licking his armpit! Yes, you read that right...he was licking his armpit. I told him he shouldn't do that because it gets sweaty and dirty and nasty and it's just gross!!! A few days later we were in the car again and Twin B sniffs then says "Whew! For a second it smelled like armpit in here!" Twin A promptly fires back with "And that's why you shouldn't lick your armpit!"
So, did you guys have a fun summer? Got the kiddos back in school? Frankly, I'm glad to be back in the routine!
