Mainly we've been doing 1. sleeping in 2. going to the pool and 3. reading, but this week also included tennis camp for Jack. (a ball and something to hit it with is all Jack requires for a good time)....
But we will get on the rest of that list soon....

Finished The Kite Runner. (I know I'm a little behind)
Now I've started this.
Jared is reading this.
Colten this.
and Jack just checked out this and he is a HUGE Robert McCloskey fan.
His favorite books are Blueberries for Sal and Make Way for Ducklings,
I have no idea why we've not read all his books already....
not much exciting here...but I'm SO enjoying this time with my guys.
Serious summer loving...
