Sunny Summer Days

On Sunday the boys had their first piano recital. They did a great job! They each memorized their pieces, and were 2 of only a few to do so. They have been practicing up a storm, so it was nice they were able to see their hard work pay off. I really like our piano teacher. i think she is great with the boys. Patient, but still expecting them to get their practicing done and do well. i think the boys, especially Ethan, actually ENJOY piano. Unheard of, I know!

The days we don't go to the pool, I let the kids play in the sprinklers... It lets me have a little "me" time!
They are really cute with each other.

Sophie especially likes painting the deck!

Emma really wanted a pet butterfly for Christmas, so I got her the next best thing...
A butterfly habitat where she can grow her own from caterpillars.

They are currently in the chrysalid stage, and should be hatching to butterflies in the next week.

So glad that the boys love the piano and are doing well. Kuddos to them for memorizing their pieces.
We have a butterfly ready to hatch hanging on the side of the house. Anxious to see it hatch. Think I will go out today and put it in a jar so we can watch it. Emma will love it.
Elliott and Matt used to love painting the patio bricks at my house!

Do you remember playing in the sprinklers as a child?
Congratulations to your boys; wish we could have gone to see them.
