A few pictures of some of summer's crazy hedonism as displayed in the Teeson home.
Swimming at a friends pool.
Mim and Zaya could do this for a lot longer than Daddy, but, to be fair, Daddy could do this a lot longer than Mommy could. I don't know if I could do it once, actually, but he threw both kids in the air over and over.
This is what happens when Mommy says, "Zaya turn around and smile for the camera."
Art's grandma found a book for Zaya that is all about building your own marshmallow launcher. He was so excited and we had to run to Ace Hardware today to buy the parts. You haven't seen funny until you've watched a six year old run up to the Ace help desk and say, "Do you have any Schedule 40 PVC?" It was priceless.
Actually, it was about $6.50 for 10 feet of 1/2" PVC and a few fittings and caps. I'd call that cheap entertainment. I've happily fostered the idea (it's not quite a myth, there's some truth to it) that Mommy is grossly incompetent with all handy-man projects, so the kids waited patiently for Daddy to get home from work. After supper they built this marshmallow launcher and the kids (and Art) have been playing with it ever since.
At least it's not a video game.
Here's Mim, coloring a marshmallow for Zaya. She's more interested in the aesthetics of most of their enterprises. I'm assuming that's because of the XX chromosomes.
Tomorrow they have their first gymnastics class. The city of W'ville is offering a month of classes through their Parks and Rec. department. Both kids are very excited, and I suppose I'm a little excited myself, remembering my first gymnastics classes and what fun they were.
