What's Up Wednesday- June 2019!

Hello end of June! The sun's shining and summer's here... We are stoked for the end of school and a whole lot of fun has been happening! 

What we're eating this week?

A whole lot of odds and ends.
Monday- turkey kolbassa vegetable soup
Tuesday- end of year swim picnic so we didn't have to cook!!!
Wednesday- I'm thinking grilled seafood and veggies?
Thursday- out to dinner and a show for the last day of school
Friday- We're having a colleague of D over with his family so BBQ for sure 
The weekend is just so far away but a little of this and a little of that!!

What I'm reminiscing about
The days when summer was ALL about taking it easy. Now it's lots of fun but not all the downtime my kiddos used to have when they were babies.

What I'm loving
All of this sunshine and the pool time we are finally getting. ooh and my little backyard patio right by our bedroom where I've been sitting to enjoy the sunshine.

What we've been up to…

Back to back entertaining over the weekend which I usually try to never do but I'm finding happening a couple times this season. C's swim friends (and then A's school friends) came over for a swim on Saturday. 

Mom tip: I usually make all the kids eat fruit and veggies before I get into the sweet stuff.... which their lovely friends brought so much of....

Their parents joined us for drinks after and it was so nice chatting with everyone. Her swim friends are a good group of girls!!

And then Sunday, our framily came and of us went in the pool. The temp was 93 and we were very happy.

What I'm dreading…

What I'm working on
Wrapping up lots of little stuff before my kiddos are home and before all the summer fun/trips are happening.  Errands, chores, organising, assignments...

oh and I got some highlights and a cut

What I'm excited about…
Tomorrow-- when school's out and my lovelies get to start their long weekend early. Woot woot.

What I'm watching/reading…
Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale--- it's such a gut wrenching fictional piece about two sisters during WW2.

And not too much watching TV in the summer. My free time is spent with my books... oh and my family.

What I'm listening to..
My kids bicker LOL... 

What I'm wearing…
Bright colours, sunnies and hats!

(and clearly little to no makeup)

What I'm doing this weekend…
Entertaining some, going to 2-3 parties, maybe a little strawberry picking, packing stuff and Canada Day.

What I'm looking forward to next month? 
No school, a little down time, a lot of family time and some summer fun we have planned!!

What else is new?
Guess who was the top  single fundraiser in her swim team... thank you to all our lovely family who donated. Sidenote, we also won a TV for your efforts.

Just hanging around with her girls after.

She never met a swing she didn't want to be friends with...

Have a wonderful Wednesday, friends!
