Summer was full of a lot of different activities for us, but we did manage to find some quiet moments. I love to find the kids reading, and I think it's really cute when they are reading comic books just like Daddy does!
Another fun annual event is my MoM's Club's trip to the Lowell Spinners games. The Spinners are a minor league ball park in Lowell and it's great to get a bunch of families together. This year, the tickets happened to fall on Superhero night, so our favorite little superheroes had a good reason to go in full costume!
The baseball itself is secondary to the snacks, especially to the ice cream. Mairead likes the music, the clapping, and the excitement. And the ice cream.
This is the first summer we have tried Vacation Bible School and the kids had a great experience. It worked out perfectly because my friend, Sarah, is actually the religious education director at a church and she runs this program. I knew they would be in very good hands, and Sarah is great with kids. They had a lot of fun, learned a lot, and made new friends. And, Dave and I were able to spend time together while the kids were at camp- it was great! Thanks, Sarah, for such a great opportunity!
