July Fun and Speed! Giveaway

We haven't been to the hospital since last Monday, so we have been able to focus on the more normal aspects of our life. This week we are still concentrating on summer: swimming, biking and free time. For me free time means exercising, playing with kids, preparing for school to start, blogging and Speed!

This week Traci at The Bender Bunch is hosting a giveaway for my skip-counting card game Speed! Stop by her blog for a chance to win. While you're there be sure to browse her blog. She is a teacher full of ideas. She just created reading benches from milk crates and last month she painted a teacher chair in fantastic bright colors.

The neighborhood dads got together Saturday to install new equipment at the playground.

The grape vines are out of control. We plan to eat grapes all through the month of September.

My son and his friend got caught in a rain shower during a walk. Luckily the air was warm, so they didn't mind.

The fashionable hedgehogs continue to dress up often, play games and occasionally get lost. Vanilla hid behind some toys and was missing for two days. We are all happy to have her back.
