summer break diary 2015: week #2

**My daughters are currently on summer break. Like last year and the year before, we are planning to do one, fun activity with them every day of their summer break. 

(See 2015's summer break activities so far hereSee 2014's summer break activities here and 2013's summer break activities here).

I will be documenting our various projects together and sharing them here on Mondays (typically) and possibly more detailed projects within the week. Read more about how this project got started here.**

We had another "lazy" week this week.  And I was a bad scrapbooker and didn't take as many pictures as I "should have." Ah well.

On Sunday (day 9), we headed to the local $1 theater to watch the movie Home (I thought it was cute and love to hear my girls laugh at the funny parts), then headed to our favorite pizza place for dinner.

On Monday (day 10), I had my girls start paper bag albums. They're going to include pictures and stories of their summer break. And while they're doing that, I can work on my book. Winning.

On Tuesday (day 11), we headed to the library to get some books. We were frazzled (maybe it was just me) because the library was incredibly busy! I decided we (again, probably more so me) needed to stop on the way home and get an icy drink. I stopped at Del Taco and got their strawberry lemonade. They're good and low in calories. Who woulda thought??

On Wednesday (day 12), my girls worked on the first layout in their paper bag albums. They are loving this project.

On Thursday (day 13), Jesse took them out on a father/daughter(s) date. (I had a quiet evening at home).

On Friday (day 14), my mom picked up my girls and took them to her house. She is continuing with embroidering and Spanish lessons this summer.

On Saturday (day 15), we went for a walk in our neighborhood and then headed home for a movie night. The girls watched their own movie and us adults watched a different movie. (Gone Girl. It was creepy and suspenseful, which I like.)

These are my layouts for this week:

  1. I love, love, love this tradition you're doing with your girls! What a good Momma you are!
    I have my niece and nephew this summer (young teens) and we are doing all sorts of crafts and projects as well. So far we're making new sew fleece blankets, clocks with wood burning, and duct tape binders/scrapbooks. There's also 2 3D puzzles currently set up in my house, and they have both been to a summer camp thing at our local college. All fun stuff!
    What you're doing will last with your girls for the rest of their lives!
    xoxo, Cerri

    1. Oh, thank you, Cerri! How fun all of your craft activities with your niece and nephew! My girls would love to make a fleece blanket. We should do that, too! :) I do hope my girls remember their summers as happy ones (as I'm sure your niece and nephew will!)
