A Little Bit About Our Life... with Photos!

This week was a tad less hectic. But we still had quite a bit going on:
  • Miss Priss spent the first few days of the week at my sister's house, helping my mother take care of my niece, who was sick.
  • Two days of helping out with pony camp for Tiny Girl.
  • Another home swim meet with the mayhem of concessions -- but it's the last this season.
  • A birthday party sleepover.
  • A day at our city's biggest theme park.
  • And planning for our upcoming junket to Maine.
That and a few afternoons at the pool, swim team practice, playdates, and iced coffee, and what more does one need?

Well, if you're me, you need some chocolate:

This is highly addictive dark chocolate filled with caramel and sprinkled with sea salt. I highly recommend it.

You also need a good book:

I highly recommend this book as well. I got it at the library and then bought my own copy on Amazon Used.

Some nostalgia is good for the soul. While the children rode the carousel in the pavilion, my friend, Eliza, and I rocked in wooden rocking chairs and talked:

It was a restful and cooling break on a hot, exciting day.

Although I declined a trip down Thunder River, the tweens had a blast:

This looks cooling as well!

At the end of the day, the caped crusaders were sweaty, footsore, damp, a tad soiled, and mighty happy.

We did absolutely no schoolwork this week, and we didn't get a whole lot of sleep, either, but it was still wonderful!

I'm linking up with Collage Friday@Homegrown Learners, The Homeschool Mother's Journal, and Weekly Wrap-Ups@Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers. Come join in the fun!


  1. Sounds like you were living life with friends and having FUN. What a great week!

    I like the book (reserved it from the library just now!) and especially the chocolate!

    Thanks for linking!

  2. Oh, neat! I do not like dark chocolate, but this one you mention with caramel and sprinkled with sea salt, it could be the one who got me into liking dark chocolate!

    Lovely week and pics!

  3. I love those super hero capes! That's been on my "to make or buy" list for my crew for a long time but I never quite get around to it. Sounds like a fun week!

  4. Love the capes! My kids made some out of men's xl t-shirts at a homeschool co-op summer gathering last year and they use them ALL THE TIME! So fun!

  5. OK I will be looking for that chocolate at my Trader Joe's!

  6. Oh yes: chocolate! And I love Trader Joes, and I love dark chocolate in particular!

  7. That looks like everyone had a great time! At first I was a bit confused as to which photo was the chocolate bar and which was the book cover - both are so beautiful! Enjoy...

  8. That chocolate has the prettiest wrapper. Who cares what it tastes like!


I love reading comments! And I appreciate the time you take to leave them. Thanks!
