July is here and it shouldn’t really surprise us. We know it comes after June, but it just seems to have arrived quickly. Wednesday we went and saw How to Train Your Dragon 2 at the movies (Summer Kids Fun). I love that they do this each summer. $3.50 for a movie, drink and popcorn! Can’t beat it. My kids much prefer watching movies they’ve seen too, so it works out well for us.
After, we went to Toys R Us to spend their birthday money. Lucy’s starting to read and when we pulled up she said, “This isn’t Toys are us, it’s Toys Rus.” Haha! She’s so particular about her words now. Every time she sees on of her sight words somewhere, she says “hey! Why are my sight words here?” She doesn’t realize that is why they are called sight words.
It was fun watching their struggle to spend only their budget. The last time I let them spend their own money, we shopped on Amazon, and I could select their budget- all they could see was what they could afford.
We left with a monster truck (shocker there right?!), playdoh, another singing bird, and some play food. It was a success.
And I’ve kept my house clean, done school, and stayed on budget. I feel accomplished!
Thursday I got to ride with Wes on his motorcycle some, because Mawmaw had the kids. They had fun. No surprise there!
This kid is so goofy!!
And Lucy refused to smile, as always.
Hope your June was great- welcome to July!
