27 & 28/52

July 20, 2014

(a portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week in 2014)

 Julia: hula hoopin' and blasting bubbles with something called 'Amazing Bubbles'. Some kid at a BBQ had this and Julia and the rest of the kids quickly discovered that the REAL fun was in using the bubble blower to shred dry, fallen leaves.

Oh and let's just throw in a few more. These pix are from the same week, so I really shouldn't be cheating and using pix from the same day, but I realized I was WAY behind, I'm supposed to be on Week 29, I think I majorly messed up my counting somewhere.

Aside from a week of very hot (for us) weather, near 90 ~ it's been a great summer thus far for the little missy. I had these ambitious plans that we'd embark on these fun summer learning units....well THAT never happened. We're watching movies and negotiating how many different kinds of treats we can fit into a day instead. I'd make a terrible homeschooler! Ah well.

Ok, 'My Doctor & Me ABC' giveaway news! We had two copies to give away, and according to that number gizmo thingamabob at random.org, the winners are Dena and Whitney!! Congrats guys!! Your littles are going to LOVE this book!
