Parker's Summer Update

Oh my goodness! I can't believe it has taken me over a month to sit down and blog! But to be honest, I would be in bed now if it weren't for some gentle nudges from Texas to update! The first month of summer vacation has zoomed by! There is so much to share that I have decided to break it down by child :). Here is what has been happening from Parker's perspective: He attended Books In Bloom for four weeks (missing three days due to a fever that would never end). Rockwood School District offers this program for incoming kindergardeners. It was good practice for both Parker and Mommy! Here he is with his teacher, Ms. Sheriff.
June also found Parker getting his eyes checked for kindergarden and seeing the ENT. Thankfully, he has great eyesight unlike his mom and dad. The ENT requires another visit in September. Have you noticed Parker talking like he is stuffed up? Well, we didn't but the ENT did so we will be back in Sept.
Of course, it wouldn't be summer vacation without a trip to Grant's Farm to feed the goats. We have already been twice!

We finally made it to Ballwin Days. Although Parker enjoyed the rides alot, his favorite (besides the fireworks of course) was the fire demonstration. They had two dorm rooms set up. One with a set of sprinklers and one without. The fire was put out in less than 5 seconds with the sprinklers. After 3 minutes, you can see what the other dorm room looked like. Scary, but Parker loved it! He especially enjoyed watching the firefighters come to the rescue!

We've also been to the Magic House. My favorite part is now the roof top garden. I wonder what plant this seed will become!

Parker enjoyed the bubble room too.

The last week of June found Parker counting down the days until Jillian returned. Every morning he reminded me that she was with Nini in Iowa. It was all I could do to keep him from being on her doorstep when she returned. They were so busy playing with each other on the fourth that this was all I could snap.

Hopefully, you will see Macy's version of June tomorrow. But with my recent track record, that isn't a promise. :)
