Summer weekends

During the heat of the day we try and do things indoors that we all enjoy. One is rock climbing at the gym. Sydney scaled up this rope like it was nothing. It's crazy that someone so small can have so much strength.
 You're usually suppose to be 5 to rock climb but for some reason they let Levi climb. His very first attempt at rock climbing and he went right up the wall and rang the bell at the top with no hesitation. Everyone that was there gathered around and was amazed and cheered for him. He did it another 4 or 5 times. The people there said Levi is the youngest to have made it all the way to the top.
 Friday night we went to the Sea Life Aquarium with the Kieta's. Just so you know I find the best deals or do things for free. Rarely do a pay full price for these kinds of things. With 4 kids now these outings would add up.
 The kids always love to explore the underwater world. There favorites are sharks and weird fish that have horns sticking out of the head or bulging eyes.

 We also have time for lessons. This lesson was on what these words mean and how they are different. Lately I hear a lot of, "that's no fair." So we had a discussion about it. I told them different scenarios and they had to lift up which card corresponded with the scenario. I also had an object lesson with a bandaid to get my point across. Pretty much they learned that fair doesn't mean equal and because we're all different and have different situations, privileges and consequences may be different with each person.
 And of course we spend a good chunk of the day holding, playing, and staring at Macie. We all love her so much. I can't imagine our family without her. She truly completes the Shaw Squad. I hope and pray for her continual joy and health in life.
