The Nuffer Family Summer Camp: year 2

This summer should be interesting with a new baby on the way, summer school that extends before during and after the delivery of baby boy #3 (and a Spanish class that starts the week AFTER the baby gets here), and 2 little boys that need some structure, learning, and physical activity.  I'm nervous to take on such an adventure, but excited too!  I plan to really get in some fun before the baby gets here and then I will do what I can to keep up the weekly themes with help from daddy and grandma.

*Keep in mind, I will get books for each theme at our weekly visits to story time at the library

Lets do this!

Week 1 (June 2 - June 6):  DINOSAURS
Monday:  Paper plate dinosaurs
Tuesday:  Make dirt and dinos pudding cups (oreos, pudding, dinos, and M&M eggs) and watch Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs
Wednesday: TTU museum and Planetarium Dino show at 2pm
Thursday:  Make dinosaur fossil craft (found at the Dollar Tree)
Friday:  Make a dinosaur skeleton
Extras: dino dot to dots, dino games and math, or maybe make a dino diagram with dirt, rocks, paint etc.

Week 2 (June 9 - June 13):  FIRE AND WATER

It's baaaaaaaaaack... The Nuffer Family Summer Camp 2018

Man, it's been awhile.  A long while.

The blog is baaaaaack! And so is the Nuffer Family Summer Camp!!!!!

The NFSC is going to be pretty different this year.  The big boys need to be challenged so much more than a few crafts and story books like when I first started the summer camp many moons ago.  With that said, I don't really know exactly what it will look like because I have to test the waters to see what interests them and what doesn't. My mom gave each of the boys a Little Passports membership, so we'll be using those in our weekly themes as well.  I have a preschooler, a second grader, and a fifth grader- needless to say, it should be interesting.  but no big deal, right?

Every day they'll spend their mornings doing some chores, spending some time outside, reading independantly, doing a little work in grade-level appropriate workbooks, doing an NFSC activity or two, and I think I'm going to teach the older boys to write in cursive. Phew!

Brian and Whitney get married!

Our family has been waiting for this day for well over a year!  My little brother, Brian, finally married Whitney a couple weeks ago.  Such a wonderful weekend!
I mean, how cute are they?!

The first night was the rehearsal, of course, but I didn't get many pictures.
I do have a fun little story, though...
Jackson was the ring bearer, and Whitney wanted him to walk arm and arm with the flower girl, Delaney.  But, he wouldn't do it.  I thought maybe it was because he didn't know her before that night, but no, that's way too simple for Jackson.  Jackson didn't want to walk down the aisle with Delaney because he thought if he walked down the (wedding) aisle with this stranger-girl, he'd be married to her!  bahahahahahahahaha!  That is hysterical!
Once we assured him that they would not be married if he walked arm and arm with this (super sweet) little girl, he was totally fine with it.
But look at their little faces.  And their little fists.  Hahahahaha!  This is t…

A Whole Lot of Random...

You guys know that my children are crazy.  And hilarious.  And random.
So here's a bunch of random moments from the Nuffer Nest.  Enjoy.
Sometimes, you just feel like Yoshi.

And sometimes, a tiny person steals my phone and takes 458 selfies that look just like this:

And sometimes, mom and grandma spend way too much time at Costco.

Other times, you smash your finger in a door and have to take a "quick" trip to urgent care. At least it wasn't broken.

And sometimes, life just gets hairy...

Other times, the Captain Underpants underwear you just got for your birthday has a cape, so you have to show it off by not wearing pants.

Sometimes, you're as cute as can be when you get a free apple at the grocery store.
(You guys, look at that little round belly- I just want to tickle and squeeze him!)

And sometimes, your brother helps you hang on when life gets tough.

Other times, they're there to give you a hug.

Sometimes, your future is so bright, you have to wear shades.
