Vrooomm with letters!

Today's letter game came from Pinterest.  I had seen in a while ago and I finally got around to making it up last night.  I found it here.  It is pretty east and straight forward.
Little Monkey was very excited about adding the wheels to the car....until he realized that the car wouldn't actually drive anywhere.  We powered through and he did pretty good.  I have a better idea of what letters he still needs to work on (thankfully not as many as I thought).  I think we will be sticking to letter games for a little bit as Little Princess is very interested in letters as well.

It feels like Fall

Wow summer came and went so fast!  We had so much fun this summer.  There were lots of beach days, family visiting, playing at the park, and bike rides. It was a full summer and I feel like it was over way too soon.  Little Monkey and Little Princess both have birthdays in the summer so I usually feel like we just finish one and the other is upon us! We tried to get out to the beach as much as we could.  Now that the kids are a little older I find it so much easier to head to the beach.  They are pretty good about sticking close enough for me to see them and if they wonder off all it usually takes is a quick name call and they come slowly back.
It has been raining for a few days now and I fear summer is really over.  Now that we have gone from being out of the house most days to being stuck inside I have been getting back into idea mode!  Little Monkey goes back to preschool in the middle of September and Little Princess will be taking some activity as well.  I need to get organized so when it all hits I will be prepared.  I am waiting for all the orchard apples to appear in the stores.  They are our favourite.  They are so flavourful!  We will be doing some apple things as well as back to school things!
Here is a little snippet of our summer. :)
