We had a great party for AJ with eight boys here to play. They traded Pokemon cards, had a water gun fight, played in our pool and slip n' slide, had a water balloon fight, played chess, played video games, ate lots of snacks and cake and all gave AJ new Pokemon cards for his birthday. We had a great group of boys here and I'm very thankful AJ has such great friends. When the parents started arriving to pick them up, no one wanted to leave. I believe that is a sign of a good party!
Sunday (6/4) started with all of us going to church together since we only have one car. It was move up Sunday so Zak moved to the elementary school class. So now all three boys are in large group together for the next year. And they are in the class that I volunteer in so all four of us were together this morning. It was a great start to our Sunday!!
Monday (6/5) The boys and I were home all day without a car since the van was still in the shop. We did a whole lot of nothing and it was fantastic! We started with our summer schedule of doing a little bit of work each day (reading, creative, math, riding bikes, learning to tie shoes, etc). I also got caught up on a bunch of stuff I didn't get done over the weekend. The boys played a lot of video games and watched a lot of TV. We won't have many days like this over the summer but when we have them, I'm going to enjoy them! Daniel did have a baseball game tonight. Thankfully Adrian got home in time to take him to the game. His team lost for the first time all season. It was a defensive battle, they lost 2-1. Daniel didn't get a hit but made a few plays in the field.
Tuesday (6/6) was the first day of sports and arts camp for AJ and Daniel. Thankfully my friend was able to drop them off this morning because I had to work at the same time. They had a great time at camp, AJ played baseball & soccer and Daniel played baseball and did art. While they were there, Zak and I went to my Silver Sneakers class, then Giant Eagle to pick up a few things and then to the Y for some swimming. We swam with friends for about an hour and a half and then he had swim lessons. We had a fun afternoon!
After that full afternoon, we came home and I cooked a quick taco dinner for us. Daniel and I ate and then ran out to baseball practice. Adrian fed the other boys and did a few things around the house with them. Then he and I headed out to use our free tickets to see the musical "Beautiful" about Carole King. It was such a great show!! We were really glad we had the opportunity to go and see it and get a night out in a pretty busy week for us.
We went and picked the boys up from camp and rushed home because they had a playdate with their friends Brooks, Simon and Yared. The six boys played video games for about two hours while I ran out to teach a Zumba class and Adrian worked from home. It was a crazy few hours but everyone had a great time so that's what matters. We had a quick dinner of gnocchi and tortellini before Adrian, AJ and Daniel headed out on a Pokemon Go adventure at Blacklick Woods. Zak didn't want to go and I was honestly exhausted so I was pretty happy to stay home. They had a fun time taking turns playing Pokemon Go and playing with our new fidget spinner.
