Anni loved Chicago Eagles summer camp last week. This was her ensemble for Wacky Wednesday!
great location and awesome coaches!
friends and sweaty, stinky carpool everyday
one of Anni’s coaches is originally from Africa!
And these lovely ladies stayed with us for the week and even forgave us when J and I had a miscommunication (shocking I know!) and locked them out accidentally and they had to sleep in their car. I know….worst host family ever! The girls loved them so much and cried when they left. I love these opportunities to host and share lives, even if for a short time!
While Anni was busy at camp Miss Evy and I have time for a few lessons here and there. She takes them very seriously. Well mostly.
The girls both attended a Wild Annimal VBS out by my Mom’s house and loved it.
In other news Anni has been begging me forever to teach me to use a “real camera” and since summer gives us lots of time we have started summer photography lessons using my old DSLR. So fun for her (and ME!) and I am super proud of how much she is really trying and learning! We had an A-Z challenge last Saturday and awoke in the wee hours to catch the bean at sunrise- totally worth it! She even started a blog to post what she is learning and doing this summer (email me if you want an invite as it is private).
I seriously had so much fun with her and she did not complain once and we walked almost 6 miles! It is so amazing to see …sniff…how grown up and cool she is! Ok, Mama rant ends here.
Oh wait… I lied. We also did our 3rd Mama- Daughter date and it was awesome to see what God is teaching us both!
one of my favorite shots of the day. It was so fun to have the bean all to ourselves for a few. She took one of me jumping too that she posted on her blog 🙂
sunkissed cuteness. seriously.
We heart the beach. In a BIG way!
Does summer ever have to end?
