We made a "suitcase" out of a file folder...
E covered it in stickers of places she's been
or would like to go...
Then we "packed" the suitcase with things
she decided she would need on a trip.
(The two drawings at the top are two of her
beloved stuffed animals, of course!)

I guess E decided she needed to teach someone, too. We've been having fun with "summer school" here at home. I recently caught E reading Thomas a book about butterflies, and showing him the 3D cutouts in the book. Silly girl! (Do you think Thomas was paying attention?)

A friend gave E a fun "paint your own clock" kit for her birthday. Let me tell you, it stretched the limits of my artistic ability (and I don't have much, let me tell you). E has been begging to work on this for weeks, so I finally broke down, and we tackled this together. I painted the monkey face and she did the rest. Colorful and cute, if I do say so myself!

We've been doing an awful lot of this:
Which means that a certain little fish thinks that
this is a little less exciting than it used to be (but still fun!):
Between swim lessons, swim "practice" and playtime,
we've been in the pool almost every day!
Such a refreshing way to beat the heat!

E loves her new swing set. But it never fails, anytime she's swinging, in addition to the familiar creak-CREAK-creak of the swing, I also hear her singing. Church songs, Sunday School songs, school songs, silly songs, TV theme songs, you name it. Sometimes I guess you just have to swing and sing!

E recently received a cute hand-me-down log cabin playhouse from some family friends. We finally have it settled in our backyard in "just the right spot". She's been having so much fun "playing house" in her self-christened "Butterfly Cabin" - so cute!
