It's Soccer Time

We recently enrolled E in a soccer camp. It fell at just the right time with Women's World Cup so E was inundated with soccer. She was watching it on tv, mommy was talking about it regularly and to top it off she was getting to play soccer. We still have two more sessions and I know E is looking forward to them.

Splish Splash

Today was full of water fun. First we headed to the neighborhood sprinkler park with our buddies Charlie and Ben and then this afternoon E played with Isabella in the pool. I am worn out from all the time in the sun but as I am working on this post E is outside riding her bike while daddy is grilling dinner. Gotta love summer!

Jones Island

Yesterday we headed to Jones Island to swim and picnic with some friends. I am not a big fan of lake swimming but it was a tolerable experience. Eleanor loved her new floaties and the freedom they provided. The water only got about 4 feet deep and she floated and swam all over the place. I have a feeling we will be doing a little more lake swimming in the coming weeks so I am going to need to get over my fear.

I Like to Move it Move it

The park districts in the area where we live are wonderful. They offer tons of stuff for families to do for a small fee but a lot of times for free. One of the free summer activities are concerts in the park. This week we met our friends John, Ryan and Amy for a concert and some playtime. Eleanor, John and Ryan enjoyed dancing and running around.
