summer break diary 2015: week #10

I had a baaaad case of the Mondays yesterday. (Bad). It was the first Monday back from summer break so I was kinda moping around trying to get it together. I was relieved to see that I'm not the only one!
That's why I didn't blog yesterday. I woke up feeling much better today!

**My daughters are currently no longer on summer break. Like last year and the year before, we are planning to do did one, fun activity with them every day of their break (more or less. ;) 

(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 documented our various projects together and sharing shared them here typically on Mondays. Read more about how this project got started here.**

We had a couple of days left of summer break before school started. I'm already looking forward to summer break 2016! ;)

On Sunday (day 65) and Monday (day 66) we were still fighting off that nasty bug from Saturday. Monday night we felt well enough to to celebrate national s'mores day after dinner.

On Tuesday (day 67) we took Lani shopping for sandals. My other girls stayed home and watched a movie with my sister and brother-in-law. School shopping and movie watching are always hits around here.

On Wednesday (day 68), the last day of summer break, we went out for dinner (Subway) and ice cream. My girls were thrilled about having two scoops of ice cream. (They couldn't handle all that ice cream though. lol).

These are my layouts for this week:

That monster on the flair badge perfectly encapsulates my feelings this week (what with being sick and school starting).

But my girls l.o.v.e. school. I can't pretend not to feel blessed by that. Good schools and good teachers are tremendous blessings. Evie brought a "My Summer Vacation" worksheet home after school this week. It was really neat reading what she remembered from our summer break together. I scoured the internet for that worksheet and printed 3 for my book. I am going to have Lani and Addy fill one out without looking at pictures of what we did. I want to know what from our break stands out. :)
