Instead of doing a post for each summer day we did something special, I've compiled them all into one gigantic post. This summer was incredible! Eli and I truly enjoyed each and every day and our Summer Fun List was a huge success! We managed to do almost every single thing on our list. It's definitely a tradition we'll continue every summer from now on. Here's how we spent the last days of our summer.
Reading books by the pool
Pajama Day at home.
We enjoyed games, movies, popcorn, and lots of rest!
Working on a special door hanger for his new 1st grade teacher.
First day at school trying to get my room together.
Eli was my helper and tightened every screw on my desks.
Nerf Gun fight with my little man
Science Day at home.
Lots of fun doing experiments with my budding young scientist.
Safety first :)
We made our own bouncy ball.
We made glitter slime.
Eli's LEGO characters quickly found themselves trapped in the slime.
Our garden started producing LOTS of okra
and I enjoyed every single little fried bite of Southern goodness.
I got ready for the new school year with my annual Erin Condren teacher planner and some other goodies. If you've never checked out Erin Condren, you need to!!
We celebrated Josh's grandmother's birthday with some yummy food and some homemade ice cream.
Eli chillaxed in my teacher's chair while I worked in my classroom.
We wore com sets made from pipe cleaners while we worked in my room.
My door going into my classroom.
Thank you, Pinterest, for the inspiration.
Eli spent an afternoon at the farm with Tim and B.
He rode in the 18-wheeler to help them deliver beans and loved every minute of it.
These two lovebirds celebrated 35 years of marriage with a trip to the beach.
I'm so thankful for their wonderful example of how fun marriage can be.
I loved seeing all the pictures my mom sent us for their anniversary trip.
They had a great time!
That was how we spent the last part of our summer. It was full of fun, family, and lots of great memories! Now it was time to focus on the start of school :)
