Labor Day Fun

Hi! Wow that was a looong break! How have you all been? I’ve been having a very busy summer doing lots of babysitting, helping mom in the garden, and playing with my neighbor friends. Sadly, we never went to the beach this summer, but we are going out to Oregon for a vacation next week! The only problem is, school starts tomorrow. So now we have to take schoolwork along. Yuck! But mom didn’t want to go until after the garden and canning were done. And that was that. 😛

But anyway! We had so much fun today! It was a great day! Natasha came over to play in the afternoon and we had a water balloon fight.

Our friend, Natasha. She is a Russian girl who’s second language is English and she loves to dance ballet. She is going to be a ballerina when she grows up.
Sis is bringing the balloons!
While me and Alessandra discussed (argued) about where we should actually have the balloon fight, Tasha snuck a balloon out of the washtub and threw it at me!
And the fight was on!
HEY!! What’s with all the balloons?! We only got four each! Hog!!
While she was busy attacking Natasha, I snuck in and stole her balloons. Ha!
And we chased her through the yard!
Later, we built a campfire and roasted marshmallows for smores. It was a fun way to end the day. (By the way, I built the campfire all be myself. ) With Dad’s supervision, of course. 😉
