Summer School 2014

None of my kids were required to take summer school - their grades were good - but it was a good way to keep their minds sharp and their bellies full (they got lunch and breakfast LOL) Plus it was only 8/10ths of a mile from home, and I enjoyed walking with them to school each morning. It only ran for the month of July, and was interrupted many times by prior commitments. 

None-the-less, they were far from pleased with the decision. The smiles here are forced (and Lu doesn't even seem to have tried)


Once at school, they met many old friends from both their current school and their old one.

College For Kids 2013


Did you read the College for Kids post about this summer's experience? Well, when I was writing it I discovered I'd forgotten to post about last year (2013). So here we go :)

Here's the beautiful lakefront while en route to UWM



















Here's the dance recital that closed out LuLu's class


















Here's our visit to Eeyore's house: 














Here's the finale of YaYa's acting class: 




And her dance class (with the same teacher as Olivia). Note that I'm sans beard - an every-five years occurrence. 














Here's Junie in the car making a farting noise with something she made in class LOL




and waiting in the Union for her siblings
