The last day of school for the girls was relatively uneventful. They both cried - Kylie because she would miss her friends, and Summer because she would miss her teacher. But those tears soon dried when they realized all of the fun that was to be had this summer.
Roscoe was feeling pretty good about warmer weather too :)
We began the summer with a project. Last fall during a big storm our trampoline hopped the fence and landed in our neighbors' yard. The legs became slightly bent and the netting was shredded in multiple places. Not wanting to get rid of our slightly used trampoline, we salvaged what we could and decided to create an in-ground trampoline.
The kids were so excited and helped however they could (which often meant that they were on London duty so Josh and I could get some work done).
After a solid day of removing the top layer of sod, we began to realize just what a huge undertaking this project would be. We recruited the help of a friend from church who owned a tractor with a backhoe. Oh man, he saved the day!
It was SOOO much work - made even more difficult by a long stint of bad weather, kids being home all day everyday, the Memorial Day holiday, and travel plans - but it has been so worth it. The kids play on the trampoline every single day. Good job, Josh :)
Our spring seemed to last a lot longer this year than normal so we were incredibly grateful when it finally warmed up!
London was fascinated by the blossoms on the trees and the petal dust in the grass. It was so fun to see how London reacted to to everything outside: leaves, blossoms, dandelions, grass, etc. She really enjoys being outside and this time she could wander the backyard however she pleased, as opposed to the previous fall when she was just learning to sit on her own.
The fun was just beginning!
