Summer Days . . .

Well, we are all surviving summer!  Yay for us!  We just had 3 out of our 4 kids with fevers this past weekend.  But everyone was pretty much fever-free yesterday and so that is good!  Here is what happened yesterday:

Emmy really wanted to sew.  Or, rather, learn to sew.  Or, rather, just play around with a sewing machine.  I found something I had pinned a while back and so I printed it up and she loved it.
 There were 2 cute sheets for her to just simply practice sewing straight lines and pivoting.  She did a "dot to dot" sheet that made a cute and simple sewing machine, and then she also worked on a maze.

 Fun, fun!  (Well at least for one of the girls.  :)

 Look at that concentration.  We'll have to do this some more!

We signed up the boys for Brain Chase.  You can read all about it here.  I don't want to explain it all myself.  It seems awesome - and it's developed and created by a couple we know (and not just know  - Allan is one of Ben's best Littleton buddies from way back when.  Yes, that makes us practically famous.).  Well the boys received their first official mail from Brain Chase yesterday - it included a welcome letter that was sealed with wax and an awesome decoder.
 Right away the boys had to figure out a clue.

So super fun and cool!

I'm already totally in love with Brain Chase.  Like a lot.
