Kids and Summer

Summer vacation has been in progress now around here for almost a month.  It is hard to believe that a month has gone by.  Today was one of those hot summer days and the kids spent most of it outdoors.  They LOVE to be outside this summer.  It is fabulous!

So far we have made a trip to the Zoo, we completed a week of VBS with our good friends the Clarks, we took a trip up north to spend some time with Grandma and Grandpa Erickson, they have started their summer afternoon camp and love it, and we have been swimming a ton. 
Every year, the summers always get easier for us with the three kids.  This year is no exception to that rule.  The kids can help apply their own sun screen and at the pool they have turned into little fish.  They are growing up so much and they are all starting to become so independent.  It is so easy to take them anywhere now as they can buckle themselves into the car and walk close to me in a parking lot. 
They truly enjoy games of four square, kick ball, Kick the can, and baseball in the front yard with the neighborhood kids and it seems as though lately these games are happening most nights. 
It is so fun to watch them become such "big" kids this summer.  Kindergarten will be here before we know it!
