So, my kids have a tiny bit over a month left of summer "vacation".
(Its been more of a summer stay since I'm kind of expected to be home for childcare lol)
I'll be taking the rest of their break off from blogging/redo's
to focus more on actual summer activities with them.

So far we've gotten some park days which included the adorable little ones I care for,
 local activities, chuck e cheese, movies, hometown destruction derby,
 the Luis Palau festival, racetrack,
and some upcoming travels/events:

They've never been! Many a summers were spent camping with Grama B, discovering trails, swimming, BBQing, playing card games, picking berries, eating ice cream, playing ping pong, mini golf, hanging at the lodge, you know "roughing it" :)

We "tag along" to all the little surrounding towns too, heehee
We might get 2 more visits before school!

Has anyone bought their fireworks yet?
Found online

We haven't but have had tons of fun fellowshipping at our church's TNT fireworks booth.
(there's 2)
Its so much fun.
 Talking, laughing, playing card games, people singing crazy off tune songs, eating random donated stuff, making memories!

Do you have any holiday plans/traditions?

We typically visit my hometown where my mom lives, BBQ & set off the fireworks right on the street.
 In past years we'd go to the town's fireworks show, fight its rare but present traffic on special nights like those and then set off our own fireworks after.
But its such a small town we tend to watch them from the house lol


This week I repurposed cuffs from one of the donations, by making bracelets.
It was super easy BUT time consuming.
