Let’s see….we’ve been to the Nauticus Museum twice in one week. They really like that there’s a museum so close to the water, and that they can go on a real ship.
Inside is a mini aquarium, a little shark pool, and a horseshoe crab hang out. You can step outside to look through the scolded and watch people working on cargo ships across the water. We also spied several smaller ships and sailboats passing by.
The Battleship is amazing! We got to check out the mess hall, the executive officers room, see the tiny shower stalls and bathrooms. Oh, and the cannons, those things are huge! I was Oohhing and ahhing right along with the kids.
Right next to the museum are apartment complexes with walking trails. The girls called it the Japanese trail, because of the restaurant and the Koi we spotted in the ponds.
There’s been lots of puzzle play, especially this alphabet puzzle. An almost 3hr trip to the library. We have three libraries near us. One is closed for renovations, we haven’t been to the other one yet, and the one in the picture has a fantastic children’s area. We like it a lot.
Kiah bridged from a Girl Scout Daisy to a Brownie on Tuesday. It was a really cute and sweet ceremony. She’s so happy and proud to be a Brownie now.
A couple weeks ago, my friend Erika gave me a big bag of all kinds of seeds, and plant food. She gave me the cinder blocks to finish my raised bed, and I’m getting some soil from her garden. I planted some collards and purple cabbage in containers from the seeds she gave me. My cabbage has sprouted already….it had been less than 5 days. The raised bed garden is taking longer than I expected to get going. I’m trying to be ok with that.
I did Kiah’s hair Tuesday, mine last night, and Ava’s is getting done today. There are three baskets of laundry waiting to be folded and put away.
Kiah has her very first sleep over Friday night. Soccer is out for the summer. She’s excited to hang out with her soccer sisters again. We were hesitant about her sleeping over….but we’re taking Ava to get her ears pierced, and possibly catch a movie. The plan is to hang out near the sleepover house long enough to see if Kiah will really stay the night. The house is about 45 mins from where we live…..no one wants to make that trek in the middle of the night.
I need to pick up almost all the decorations for Samuel and Ava’s Luau party Saturday. Ava turns five on Sunday! I can still get away with having their parties together. I’m sure Ava will want her own party as she gets older.
There are cupcakes to be made, shells and sand to gather, laundry to do, and a house to finish cleaning.
As you can see our done is pretty big. Our doing is small, and our to do is on the longer side…..it’s going to be a busy, and wild few days.
