All was right with the world when the Toler's came for a visit from New Zealand. The kids were beyond excited counting the days until their visit and we couldn't wait to get our hands on them! We met them all jet lagged and fresh from their flight at none other than Chick Fil A, and many happy encounters followed during the next week. They are here for 6 weeks but making the rounds with family, so we will see them again the end of July- can't wait!
The kids also finished up their school year, and there was much partying and fun at school for a good two weeks before school was out. I took the kittens and Baldwin in to see Gavin's class with Mrs. Clement, which was a HUGE hit! Cameron enjoyed a Japanese day and an engineering day where they crafted paper airplanes and bridges. Both of them had picnics that we attended as a family. Gavin's teacher put together a fairytale that the kids all had a part of writing. Gavin was in charge of the villain- a 3 inch goblin. Cameron's teacher Ms. Morgenroth bought the kids pizza and soda, a rarity in our house, especially coke. Cameron and Mason were in their glory! They also watched way too many movies if you ask me, the kids should have been out at least a week earlier, but at least they were enjoying it. We're now in the thick of summer and it has been going really smoothly! We'll see how long that lasts!
