The girls arrived on Memorial Day. Yay!
So far we’ve built a fort and tore it down, they didn’t like the spiders that moved in.
The hammock swing is still up and is used daily. It is attached to mulberry trees, which have mulberries. Lots of mulberries. Thus the purple feet. So far, 2 dresses and 2 shorts are confined to at home play only. I doubt those stains will be coming out!
We visited the Herr’s snack factory. That was pretty cool. They gave us chips right off the line, still warm, they were delicious! The girls said it was better than Chocolate World! I think it was just a spur of the moment statement. lol
We’ve had lots of art time, Baylee drew me.
We try and get some reading in every day. They both do pretty well!
I gave them the swag I got for them at the Tampa RV show. The blinky neon rings were the favorite thing!
We went to the John Wright Restaurant for some music and friends. It’s a great place, right on the Susquehanna River, with a large grassy area for playing
I made a chore chart for them, before I saw this list. They are doing the 6-8 chores and a couple from the 9-11 age group. When they complete a chore, they cover it with the flower. As long as they do them each day, I’m giving them $2 a week for an allowance. That is very motivating for them!
They also have some loaner bikes. They have gotten a lot of use! I like that we live on a cul de sac. There is very little traffic and they ride down to the circle and draw with chalk and play.
Baylee turned 7 on June 4th. I let her make most of the choices for the day. We went to Huddle House for breakfast and Chocolate World to made our own chocolate bar.
I love the roasting tunnel pictures!
They hugged the Kiss!
McDonalds was the lunch choice. A female mallard duck tried to join the party!
After dinner at Kauffman’s BBQ Ranch, with ice cream, she opened presents from Aunt Jen and I. Mom got to watch from TN, thanks to Facetime.
We are just a few miles from a Berks County Library branch. They have an awesome kids program. We kicked off the summer reading program with the Superhero program. They got to make a bunch of superhero gear. For every 10 books they read, they will get a free sub from Subway. Since we are reading about a book a day, I expect a couple of free subs! And a bank will give them $10 in a savings account for reading 10 books, only one time for that, though!
Most days they get their hair in braids. It just keeps it nicer. They cringe with every snag when I brush it. This day they chose ‘puppy ears’ hair.
Only 1 campfire so far, with marshmallows. Yummy!
More fun will follow!
