On Friday, Kiree and I got to go to the summer birthdays celebration at Jaide's school. Kiree was so excited to go to Jaide's class! The kids in Jaide's class were very excited to see Kiree! Kiree was quickly surrounded by kids and hugged by several. Another mom and I were helping with the party, getting the snacks served to the kids. Kiree sat with Jaide and participated in the festivities. We sang to all eight kids who had birthdays June through August (all at once) After snacks, it was time to play! Jaide and one little boy played with the overhead projector and colorful transparent shapes. Kiree played with them for a while.
Then Kiree saw some other kids doing art. She joined them. Several kids drew pictures for her. Two little girls helped Kiree paint and then play with play dough. Then it was time to clean up and get ready to go home. Jaide enjoyed getting to be a "car rider" for the first time going home from school. We played outside at home for awhile and Jaide got to watch her bus drop the other kids off a little while later.
Friday night we packed up a picnic dinner and went to the outdoor pool for the first time this season. The girls were really excited and they even helped me get dinner packed up. It's really nice now that Kiree can walk the entire length of the baby pool confidently.
Saturday Bob and I had a lot of projects to work on around the house. The girls were bored (we're doing the fast from the world- ie no tv/videos/etc this month) and I needed to spray paint some stuff in the backyard anyway, so I set up the kiddie pools for the girls. The slide that came with the one pool never stays in very well anyway, so we set it up at the bottom of the plastic slide. It was a good little set up. The girls enjoyed it very much.
On Sunday the girls wore their matching dresses I bought this week at the Children's Place outlet. They were only $3.99 each and then I got an extra 20% off with a coupon! Swinging skirts are great for dancing!
