This past Friday was the last day of preschool for my two youngest (whom I affectionately call 'the littles'). Which means, it was the last morning alone with my two oldest boys.
We've spent a lot of our free mornings at the pool. With both of them finally being big enough to swim, touch the bottom, and not drown, it was quite a different pool experience than past summers. We played with the diving torpedoes. We floated on pool noodles. We had cannon ball contests. And we played catch with the football. All 3 of us enjoyed the quiet morning pool time.
I was also able to run errands without all 4 kids around. Grocery shopping was interesting with someone other than myself pushing the cart. It was also interesting how a bunch of different food I normally don't buy ended up back home as well.
Since our mornings free were coming to an end, I tried to make it a little more special. I took Jackson and Cullen to Café Java for second breakfast. My boys are always hungry and usually don't turn down food.
After Café Java, I took them over to Ceramic Lodge. It's a paint your own pottery place. I let them each pick out a piece to paint. Jackson painted an Angry Bird bank, and Cullen picked out a dragon. Cullen got really into it! Jackson is a little perfectionist with everything it seems.
It was a nice out-of-the-box morning for us. (Although Jackson still wanted to go to the pool!) I documented it as best as I could.
School starts is 20 days! But first we have to get through August!
