The Rhythm of Summer : Week 2

We are just starting our journey into Summer
and in an effort to make sure
that I don't just plop my kids in front of the TV all day,
I am pulling out all the stops
to keep my children engaged and entertained.

I plan to document some of our
simple summer adventures here each week.


We played hopscotch.


Drew masterpieces on the concrete,


messed around with Play-doh,


had a Badminton championship in the backyard,


baked gluten free chocolate chip cookies,


pulled dad's old dusty keyboard off the shelf
and formed a family band.

We are called "The Peanut Butter Hour"
and our music kind of sounds like
small animals being tortured.

I see a bright future.

{Disclaimer: No small animals were harmed in the making of this post}

It has been forever since I played hopscotch. The band cracked me up. We have one of those keyboards that does all those weird sounds too. Kids LOVE it and it can make a sound like a tortured small animal lol.

aww! So fun! I need to stop being lazy this summer. All we've done is blow up the swimming pool. Lol.

My sister and I had a band when we were young, and we called it "Lily and Her Athlete's Foot."

Don't ask me why...
