When I went to pick up Pretty Girl from school today, she was very excited to show me her book that her class had written and illustrated. The class received their books today and we were all very impressed.

It was a beautiful first day of Summer! The weather was perfect for Primary Fun Day at Grandson, Sweetheart and Lucas's school........they all had lots of fun on this cloudy warm day. There was a great cloud cover for most of the day and the sun came out around 1:30 pm. It's the first and only time that they will participate in a Primary Fun Day together because my favourite grandson heads off to Intermediate next year.
After this amazing Fun Day, Sweetheart had a dress rehearsal for her dance recital this weekend and Grandson had a baseball game. He and his team are in the playoffs and they won their second game this week. Now they play in the playoffs on Saturday and it's looking to be a very very busy weekend!

People are always commenting to me that I take care of a lot of boys. And they are right.....especially on a Monday. Aubrie came for a few hours today and Baby stayed for the afternoon, but from 2:20 on, these were my boys.

I needed to share a few more pictures from this morning. We all had so much fun!

We started our Saturday morning at the softball field for a 9:30 am game.
She learned how to hit that ball really well off of the T. And because she played first base this morning, she got lots of catching and throwing in. I love watching the children run the dragon race at the end of the game.....I really think it's their favourite part of the whole game.
They all received medals and they were all very pleased. There are a couple of girls missing, but the ones who were there had a great morning! Our emotional little one cried because she doesn't want softball to be over.
Showing off her softball medal! Still a bit teary-eyed.
Again, they are all just so excited to run the dragon race at the end of the game.
DIL coached Pretty Girl for the third year and she did great. Her assistant wasn't there today and she was missing three girls. But these guys had a super season!

Sweetheart took a jazz/tap class this year and her photo arrived today. I love how she called it her jazz, slash, tap class. She did the jazz part of the class at the beginning of the year and has been tapping since Christmas.

These two little people were looking for ants today. They aren't really too hard to find, and they were having fun catching them and observing them.

It was so so so so hot on Wednesday and it took some convincing on these boys' part for me to take them outside at the end of the day.

The group activity at MyGym was a lot of fun this morning. But then again, it always is. A lot of fun, that is. They have done this before and the children love it! It's called "The Big Breeze."

But first, sleep. Finn and Shay both slept for just over an hour, but at 1:55 (just before we had to leave to go pick up her sister at school) Sweet Pea crawled up on my lap and fell asleep.
I probably should have just taken her and put her into her seat in the van, but I went to get her sleeping friends before I took her down and strapped her in. The pic of Finn was actually taken previous to the others falling asleep as we had a pre-school drop off to make at 12:30. Then we went into town to pick up Mila and Fara from their pre-school, only to learn that they had gone home early because Mila had a fever. I was very grateful to their teacher who saw me park and came out to tell me that they weren't there. Before I unbuckled anyone. I would have been more grateful if I had known before that but I guess there was some miscommunication on their parents end. Such is life and I was called with a very big apology just before 2. Stuff happens. And when Finn fell asleep on the way home, he just looked so precious.
We went to get doughnuts at Tim Hortons. I even parked and took them in just so they could pick whichever one they wanted.
These two blessings were very happy too. Sweet Pea just licked all the icing off, but the other three children ate every last bite of theirs. Pretty Girl told me that she had already had a doughnut at school with her hot lunch, and when #2 picked up his girls, he told me he had doughnuts in the car. Happy National Doughnut Day!!
