This week we had the older girls in camp. Marly did a pee wee tennis camp, just for an hour. Ellie did a tennis & golf camp which was pretty much all day. I think it was a neat experience for both of them. It also gave me a bit of a break and a taste of what the school year may feel like. The afternoons were a bit wacky because Ellie was picked up at 2. One day went skipped nap and had lunch and went swimming at my parents with the cousins. Another day we took an early nap, and one day a late nap. One day my friend Allison helped by collecting Ellie then we spent the afternoon at the pool. We had coffee club on Thursday morning. My mom took Marly for me so I just had Abigail. We had an interesting conversation about the legality of marijuana. I'm slowly working on moving the office part of the guest room upstairs into our room. So, Ellie will get her own room for a while. Abigail turned 18 months this week! The potty training has begun! Maybe I'll get serious about it next week. Monday we ran some errands but it was one of those days where the first errand took way too long so not all the errands were done. The day was saved with a play date at the FYC pool with the Freeman's. Marly's bestie, KK joined us at the pool on Friday morning. That night we had the Cower's and Suter's over for some fun while the kids wrecked the house. Saturday morning Ellie had a party to meet some of her new friends. Emma hosted a party for a bunch of moms and daughters starting kindergarten at Stockton to mix and mingle. Such a cute idea! We're excited! After the party we headed over here to Navarre for a bravocation. We arrived in time to catch a sunset on the beach and take a quick dip in the pool before heading next door to a local beach shack for dinner. This morning we got out early for more play had lunch and took a long nap. Our cousins came to visit for the afternoon/evening. What a great visit! I actually feel refreshed after catching up and getting a break (Michael and Rachel are wonderful babysitters!) Now we're just listening to the rolling waves of the Gulf of Mexico. Such a soothing sound!
