Monday was Memorial Day, and we celebrated the holiday with some sprinkler fun (we hadn't opened our pool yet- darn rainy weekends). But this weekend, the rain cleared and we were able to stain the deck on Saturday and Sunday, taking the cover off the pool Sunday night (I, thankfully, did not get a picture of what the water looked like under said cover). I had been saying to Annaliese for months now she needed a hair cut, and Friday of this week, I had finally had enough with trying to comb through her knots and managed her mane. An impromptu trip to Great Clips and six inches, and my frustration, were gone. We also signed up for the summer reading program at our public library this week and the kids read like crazy. Ian discovered if he read to her, they would both get credit for the book, and we spent a lot of time reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban aloud.
|They kids helped... Ian for about 15 minutes and Annaliese for about 30.|
|Spray it on and brush it to even it out- best method ever.|
|First time having her hair washed at a hair cut.|
|Before and After|
|It's great having a big brother who can read to you.|
|The porch is proving to be a favorite spot to read.|
