Ty's Home

Ty is here for a short summer break. He flew in Friday morning June 27. (Jasmine and I got home late on the 25th.)

He has my hair. It grows straight out, not down.

Saturday morning Tyler and the twins did a 6K for a local children's home The rest of us did the one-mile walk.

Ty hasn't run in a long time, but he finished okay. This seemed to be a slow race overall.

Kaleb got second in age group.

Ty got first in his age group.
We went to the pool so Ty could coach the girls on the climbing wall. Neither of the girls had made it up very far.

Ty showed them one route up.

A neighbor asked me to go for a girl's day out with her. Jasmine and Josi's daughter Joy joined us, and one of Joy's friends came along too. Jessica had to work. The movie was really, really good. I was skeptical because of the scene with the two dads tied together in the preview. I was afraid it was going to be a "kids outwit the dads" kind of movie, but it wasn't.
The little ones stayed at our house with Tyler.

Rick and I went to Applebees for our anniversary.

And then to Chills.

Tuesdays and Thursdays are our long days and it gets worse starting this coming Tuesday. Jasmine has physical therapy for some muscle issues from 9 a.m. until 10. She has summer band from 10:30-11:45. The twins have hip hop at 12:00 and Jasmine has hip hop at 1:00. So we all leave home at 8:30 and not get back until 2:30. Then the twins have gymnastics/tumbling at 5:30. Band is M-Th for three weeks. We won't be able to walk in the park in the mornings anymore, and there are only two days we'll be able to work on swimming. 

Lance is the hip hop teacher. The kids love him.

So that's some of what we've been doing lately. The kids are also doing the summer bridge activity book. It's required for Kayla, but they are all doing it. Jasmine has a book to read which is no problem because she reads a lot, and she has summer math work.  

I'll  post pictures of the 4th soon.
We are going to be working through Just for Me:
My Family, which is a good book for ages 4/5 to about 8. Especially for girls who have joined your family through foster care or adoption and for the siblings too. I'll be posting about that on my blog for girls soon. It's a girls book but the activities are geared for families.
