Weekly Wrap-up: Fun Times and Potty Training

We had a pretty relaxing week this week.  I think we were all recovering from another Birthday Weekend!  We really like birthdays around here.  This post is mostly going to be pictures because, well I like pictures alot too.  And who really wants to read about all the fun we had when they can see it in pictures?

Oh, and before I forget to brag, Little M decided this week he would like to use the potty.  He has a love hate relationship with his potty.  He loves to talk about it, sit on it, even carry it around the house.  But until this week he really hated to "go" in it.  He's asked a number of times to start using the potty but all previous attempts have ended in tears (sometimes his, sometimes mine).  This time it looks like it might stick!  We didn't have official school this week at all.  I really wanted this potty thing to work this time so he had my full attention any, and every, time he needed to go on the potty.  Fingers crossed!!

And now on with the fun:

We spent the weekend at the campground (we have a seasonal site in Cape May Courthouse NJ).  Saturday night was Wildwood Boardwalk Extraordinaire!


Rides

Rides

Momma's yearly dose of funnel cake

And more rides

Ms Q and Fred

Little M fell asleep amid all the noise and lights

Baby C did too

Sunday we went to Sunset Beach where you can hunt around the in sand for Cape May diamonds.  The water current brings alot of pebbles to this beach and polishes them up something sweet.




Next week we are back to the grindstone.  We are switching to our summer schedule with free time in the morning and school after lunch.  Ms. Q is really excited to start a unit on space for science and, as silly as it sounds, I can't wait for our field trip to the post office next week with our homeschool group.  Little M will not have any Tot School because after lunch is his nap time.  He will start Preschool in September.  I guess that's it for now.

Looks like a fun time at the boardwalk. The funnel cake looks good too. Last time we were at the fair I ordered an elephant ear thinking it was the same thing as a funnel cake. I found out after I got it, it wasn't, but I ended up liking it better. Yum! Thanks for linking up to NOBH!

Hi Jess, what fun activities for your children! I can't tell which they liked better? The carnival or the beach? Is the potty training still going well?
