Kids summer work

The kids put a lot of hours reading this summer and even some math and geography work.  Even Daddy did some science experiments with them.
We are a week away from school starting!

Here is some of their summer work.  I know I had more pictures, I just can't seem to be able to get organized with Blog pictures.   Very frustrating.  The kids have also been working on math facts, sweet boy has worked with the division and multiplication boards, and bella with the stamp game.  Stamp game is Bella's favorite math work.  I am slowly realizing just how smart she is.  She amazes me sometimes.  She definitely got that from her Daddy!

The smiling toddler had to be placed in another room after destroying the map twice!

Sweet baby and his books with Mr. Potatoe Head's glasses!.  He signs "Read Book!"
Lots and lots of lego building, specially miniature stuff like this little piano.  Sorry for the blurry picture.
I LOVE toddlers! So sweet.
Maps came out again.  Bella has been very interested in the flags, countries and animals of the world.  Possibly because of the Olympics.

The Beach!

We had a great time visiting my husbands family once again this summer.
My husband lost his Mother this May to cancer. Our trip was good but the the joy of Grandma having her grandkids around was missing. She LOVED going to the beach with the kids.

They would all fall asleep as soon as we got in the car after the beach.

Swim Meets

Bella, the kids friend in the middle and sweet boy!

The kids have had a great summer competing and even winning some first, second and third place ribbons!

We are really enjoying watching the Olympics with the kids this year. They are excited because they understand all the swimming strokes and relays.

These are pictures of their first place races.

Sweet Bella is the one with the cap
I have to remind people that she is ONLY 6 years old!
