Early Release at School

We LOVE early release day at school! Every Wednesday the kids get out at 1:45 and we usually have friends over...but lately Miss Claire has been stopping by for a visit here and there! 

First they played in the playroom/Kaylee's room and then went out to the slide :)

Claire can climb up with help and always brushes her hands off after touching the dirty wood ;)

They went over and over and even tried the swing a time or two

Next we made homemade lemonade ;)  Our neighbor has a huge lemon tree that hangs over our fence so our kids picked a bunch of them and asked if we could make lemonade for our Bible Study that night. 

They didn't actually follow a recipe - they just added water, lemons, sugar and a bit of honey

Even Claire learned to squeeze the lemons ;)

The final product
Finally it was time for everyone to try it...I don't think it turned out quite like they were thinking it would ;)
But they kept tasting it anyway...

And even added more sugar and honey to try and sweeten it a bit more...

Still not the best lemonade ;)

None-the-less, Claire wanted to try it also...

This was her first time having any type of lemonade at all

And even thought it was sour, she liked it and kept wanting "mo... mo" 

Then she decided I needed to try it ;)

Notice her really making sure I get a good taste of it ;)

Pretty sour! Now Claire wants Sissy to try some more!

Then Daddy got home and they boys handed him a glass

I think at first he thought it was going to be good ;)

Quickly realizing that it was a little more sour than he was expecting

But still trying to be nice and thanking the boys for his refreshing glass of lemonade!
Once Brod got home Keeg wanted to head out and drive the go-cart

He took me for a spin ;) It was m first time riding in it since the body got put on it ;)
