Friday (8/19) Zak and I dropped the older boys off to school and then we had a date day! We headed to Zoombeezi Bay for the last weekday that they are open for this season. We spent about 3 hours there between Tiny Tides (the kids area), the Lazy River and the wave pool. We had a lot of fun there together!! Then we had to race home to pick the older boys up from school, get everyone dinner and head back out to baseball practice. I was so tired after that (plus PiYo & Zumba at the gym) I was asleep by 10:30!
Saturday (8/20) we decided to head out to Utica to continue our family tradition of picking apples and peaches at Legend Hills Orchard. We picked two pecks of peaches and one bag of Gala apples. We also enjoyed a few in the field. Then we headed up the road to Ye Old Mill Inn for some Velvet ice cream. Daniel & Zak enjoyed chocolate while the rest of us got the Buckeye Classic. It was SO good! We played at their playground for a little bit before heading home. Very fun family day in Utica!
Monday (8/22) was the start to a more structured schedule for us. Zak and I dropped the big boys off at school and headed out for our usual Mon stops - Aldi & the gym. We also had a fun play date in the afternoon for him and one of his friends. Finally, in the evening Adrian took Zak to meet his preschool teacher for this year. He is very excited to start school on Weds!! I took AJ & Daniel with me to the gym & they enjoyed some (rare) video game time while I taught.
Tuesday (8/23) was Zak's last day off before starting preschool. I was planning to go to the gym and run a few errands but he really wanted to stay home and watch video games so that is what we did. I got a bunch of stuff done around the house while he watched TV. AJ and Daniel also had dentist appointments in the afternoon. They are both cavity free although Daniel had a lot of tartar build up. They gave us "tooth timers" to make sure we are brushing long enough (we probably we not).
Wednesday (8/24) was Zak's first day of preschool!! He was a little hesitant this morning, but he did great. I successfully got everyone to school ontime and celebrated with a solo trip to Meijer!! I also had an interview at a new gym teaching Silver Sneakers. When I picked Zak up I could see he was exhausted. So we mostly relaxed the rest of the day. AJ and Daniel continue to have great days at school! They are loving only having reading as nightly homework. Tonight they had baseball practice which they just got in before it started raining. They're excited to start games this weekend!
