5 Things Friday {7.21.17}

Y’all. It is hard to come back from vacation. This week has been hard. HARD. We jumped right into summer camps and appointments and stuff. So much stuff. We have 27 more days of summer vacation. I plan to make the best of them. 

1. We spent most of last weekend at the pool in between thunder storms. I’m so impressed with how well Zoey has been swimming this summer. She used a puddle jumper float last summer even though technically she could swim- she just wasn’t comfortable enough to swim without it all the time. This year she has turned into a little fish. She can swim the entire length of the pool by herself and is counting down the days until she’s age eligible for swim team next summer. Mason is going to do swim team with her next year so that will be fun!

2. One of the biggest blessings that came from Tyler getting into his charter school last year has been the friends I have made. One of those friends happens to be the music teacher for the elementary grades and her daughter is Zoey’s best friend. So she took Zoey with her to the piano lab camp and the show choir camp at the school this week. Zoey has had the best time. She can already play a couple of songs on the piano! Plus she got to make some new friends before school starts!

3. Speaking of charter schools, we finally got the call that Maia has a confirmed spot with the other kids. I’ll have all 4 kids in one school next year. I’m still in shock! We are the only family to get 3 kids in to the school via the sibling lottery in years. We totally should play the mega millions! So I washed all of her uniforms from her old charter school and got them sold this week so I can order her new uniforms for her new school. This week has been a whirlwind. I had to get Maia signed up for volleyball skills camp because tryouts are the first week of August! I had her sports physical scheduled that week but had to get it moved up. It’s been pure crazy. But so worth it!

4. We also went for Maia’s third orthodontist consult this week. She gets braces started on August 3rd. We loved this office and decided to go ahead with his plan. Maia has severe crowding with a crossbite on one side that is affecting the alignment of her jaw. She’ll be in braces for 3 years and we’re going to be poor. But this office does 0% financing for 20 months with a $800 down payment making it only $168 per month. I downloaded a 25 meals to make with ramen noodles cookbook in preparation. Ha!

5. With our week being so busy we didn’t get to spend long hours at the pool so I settled for long soaks in the hot tub during the day. But I had to cool it down because hello 98 degrees outside. So it’s more like a lukewarm tub right now….feels just like the pool water.
