My oldest told me yesterday that we were half way through summer. I couldn't believe it. I blinked and June was over. We participated in two weeks of VBS, starting taking piano lessons, visited the new children's museum in our area, went to the water park, the zoo, and much more.
I try to keep my boys reading through the summer by getting books I know they'll read. My mom (pictured above with my 3 children) read to me all the time growing up. All. the. time. Perhaps that's one of the reasons I became an English teacher and loved teaching others about literature.
Here are some of our favorites. (affiliate links included)
We are often on the go and with an almost 16 month old and two growing boys, I need to have something in my bag for them to eat!! These have to be my favorite containers right now. They don't leak, the lids stay closed, and it's the perfect portion to hold off hunger til meal time!
We also have plates and sippy cups!
