First day of summer...

It's SUMMER BREAK around the Holsopple household! Daddy's last day of school was yesterday. This means he went to Menards this morning and dropped a crap ton of mula for some of our summer projects. It is much cheaper for us if the boy is either working or coaching! (his comment, not mine)
First on the list was a sandbox for the little ladies. Darin did some internet research and it told him to dig a hole as if you were digging to China. He obeyed.
Joya is showing me a tiny bit of dirt in her really big dirt box.

Girls thought it would be just as much fun to play in the dirt as it would be sand... This pic cracks me up.. daddy wasn't kidding with that big ol' hole!
Joya glances up because she sees that mama has the camera. She's such a cheese.

Yes. I remembered to sunscreen Adie's part in her hair. This is an example of remembering to do some responsible mothering.
Not a good example of responsible mothering?
Realizing at lunch on your daughter's 3rd bowl of mac-n-cheese that you forgot to feed the poor child breakfast. =/ Glad there aren't reviews in this job called mothering. Pretty sure that one would come up under "tasks I need to work on." Poor thing, she didn't even complain!
Anywho, we now have the best sand box in the neighborhood! Pretty sure it's the ONLY sandbox in the neighborhood but it's a fine and dandy one.
***
And I just got in on the banner craze.. made this one for Joya and Adie's birthday and just moved it into Joya's room.
Love her in the corner.. I put her blankie on her crib everytime I find it so I know where it is for nap/bed time and she thinks it's fun to come and swipe it. Every time.
Shoulda straightened out her "joya" but hey, ya all know I'm no where near a perfectionist!

Your girls are so beautiful. I love the thing with breakfast. I just did that the other night except with supper. Abby had a ball game so we got home late and I had the girls get their showers not thinking that Abby didn't eat supper because she don't like to eat before her game. Well when we were tucking her into bed she looked at both John and I and said I don't even get supper. We felt horrible.

Great banner...I am in the process of doing one for Avenlea's bday too. I think it is pretty impressive that she is dressed in a shirt that matches the pic forget the crooked letters.

Joya's room looks so cute. Love the banner.

What happened to Mr. Meowface? He's not going to think the sandbox is a giant litter box is he? I just ask that because it happened to us when we had a sandbox and a cat that would occassionally show up. One day I looked over and saw my little boy in the sandbox playing with a cat turd! Ha! Gag!

What a great sandbox for your girls! Hey, I just noticed that you don't have the updated link to my "new" blog. I created a new one in Jan. & I see you still have my old one @ the side of your blog.
