Pool days are the best, for the most part. We've had a few lessons on other people not being very kind, but we've rocked it by sharing our toys, including others in our games, and making sure Joey is involved. Brother love is awesome.
|Making up our own games.|
|Ready for camp!|
We kicked off summer with a camp, the only one Andy asked to attend: History Camp! The program is through Ferry Farm/Kenmore, and features important colonial sites in town. Every day was a different site, with lots of awesome activities and new friends.

|Let's get SOAKED!|
|Hooray! Aunt Emily!|
|Our first grits, in our first Waffle House.|
|Hooray! Granny Ann!|
Andy was especially fond of Granny Ann's cats, who were also particularly fond of him.
|Ta-da was especially fond of Andy.|
|Nerf. It's a way of life.|
|Look on Andy's face when he saw the car was full of Nerf guns.|
The best thing about Nerf guns is that Andy can make up all sorts of games with them. He also shares them with the whole neighborhood, so everybody gets to play. And we don't use the bullets, so no eyes are taken out.
Andy's garden has been doing well. It hasn't needed a lot of tending, because there has been plenty of rain- just a little light weeding. However, lack of sunshine also means we haven't had a huge harvest, either.
We have also gotten a few tomatoes, mostly from the plants we put in pots near Grandma's deck. Apparently deer thing tomato plants are delicious.
So the summer is going by fast. It's already August! Before we know it, it will be time to get back to things like math and grammar. But for now, we are learning about being a boy, and having fun, and realizing that the world is one big classroom, with lots of world to explore.
