This week was awesome! Lilli and I had a blast at Children's
Island. We learned songs, hunted
for beach glass, kayaked, swam, played fun games, and basically had the best
camp experience ever. Here's my
map of the island.
On Tuesday afternoon, Mom and Dad were able to come over on the boat to
join us for an evening cookout.
They thought it was a pretty magical place too, despite the
very windy weather! It was extra nice that our good friend GG was there all
Friday was our last day of Children's Island, and we had
Color Wars. Despite the fact that
Lilli and my team (we were both blue) won, we still thought it was
wonderful. When Mom picked us up,
we went to Hadley to find out who our new teachers are!
My good friend Jay is in my class again this year, which I'm
excited about. Lilli doesn't
really know anyone in her class, but she's excited anyway!
After the big teacher news, we went to the beach to meet
some friends for a pizza night playdate at the beach. (Can you tell we're trying to make the most of our last
couple of weeks of summer?)
It was lots of fun, and we were absolutely exhausted when we
got home that night.
(Scout loves when we sleep in Lilli's room because my bed is
on the floor and she can climb right in there with me.)
Yesterday we took Scout to the marine lab so she could run
around a bit. I think Lilli and I
may have enjoyed it even more than her, which is saying a lot!
Today, Dad and I went to see the Red Sox play the Astros,
compliments of my baseball coach.
We had great seats, and I ate a ton of popcorn!
(All of it.
Every last bite.)
Lilli and Mom had a fun afternoon too - making cookies,
riding bikes, and hanging out with GG for a bit.
When we haven't been busy with Children's Island and other
activities this week, we've been playing Quidditch in the front yard (capes,
broomsticks, and all!).
Our bocce ball set provides the perfect snitch.
By hanging on the apple tree with one arm, we can even
"fly" on our broomsticks.
(You'll note that our feet are not touching the ground!) Scout loves to sit and watch us play.
This week it's basketball for me and gymnastics for
Lilli. Our last full week of
summer! Hard to believe.
PS - Our turtle nest hatched this week, and Lil was able to
be there to give us the full account!
She helped rescue these 3 hatchlings that were then released into the
Gulf. Pretty cool!
