The only thing that we really told Emily was to have fun. We wanted the boys to enjoy the summer and for her too since she would be leaving for college come August. I guess we did have a few workbooks for the boys to work through and a few chores but for the most part, make memories. & memories they did.
But I wanted to make sure they captured their summer too, through their eyes. So I bought a Instax, a small polaroid camera, for them to capture a picture each and every day & then we compiled them in their toy room. & I couldn't love how the project turned out more...
Their adventures took them to Petland to play with the puppies, kittens and birds.
They learned to tie their shoes. They learned how to swim better and swim in the deep end without help. They went to movies. To the dog park with Onyx, Emily's dog. Bowling. The Zoo.
I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that there isn't a single person who wanted to see this come to an end, they built such a wonderful bond over the summer and we love Emily as though she were ours. It's hard to see her go off to college but we know great things lie ahead for her.
