Life with Bennett {week 50}

I can't believe we are now in the FIFTIES in terms of weeks old, and that I only have 2 more weeks before someone's birthday! AHHHHH!!!


We wrapped up Ella's week at our church's VBS by going to her little performance! Bennett was skeptical...

But Ella had a lot of fun at this VBS! I was really proud of her for making it all day (9 AM until 4 PM!) every day!! 


August 3 was my best girl's half birthday, so what better way to celebrate than with ice cream, right?!

Outside of the ice cream shop, there is the cutest little striped wall, so of course we had to take some pictures!


We went over to our friends' house to play, eat dinner and drink wine (parents, not children!). 
Bennett had fun with his girlfriend, Ellie!

And Lucas was obsessed with this cash register (don't worry, I've added it to his wishlist)! Please ignore the mismatched pants...he had an accident within 5 minutes of us being over there. Of course he did. 


Library time!

We had found some special visitors at the parents were in town checking on their house, so they met up with us!

This boy is just a hop, skip and jump away from pulling all of those books off the shelves. Not my favorite milestone, haha.

We also got his Halloween costume in the mail. He was not interested in wearing his Peter Pan hat for any length of time!


Ella AND LUCAS (!!!!) got to go to Ella's preschool...actually, make that Lucas's preschool now...Vacation Bible School! Yes, two weeks in a row of VBS for Ella! 

Bennett got to be an only child for the first time in his life! After running a few errands with me, we went to his very first swimming lesson!!

Bennett has the same swim lesson teacher that Lucas did 2 years ago!! He loved splashing the water...I actually had to hold him away from the rest of the group because he kept splashing everybody!

After we picked the big kids up from VBS, we stopped at Target to get Lucas's school supplies! He was very excited, and I was very excited that they were much cheaper than all of Ella's were!


Another day as an only child for this guy! Which meant, more errands (sorry buddy, trying to get all of the things for your birthday party!)

When we picked up Ella and Lucas, we had to take my car in for an oil change! Luckily the place is just down the street from our house, so we could walk home instead of wait there! 


Another swim lesson for this guy!

He got to be the model for back floating and the teacher was so impressed he didn't cry like most kids do on their backs!

Then, we went to Ella and Lucas's VBS performance. Oh man, what a treat. Lucas literally stood like this for an entire two songs. Statue child, LOL. Glad he is having fun. 

Of course, then he started running up and down the aisles, trying to come sit with me, sitting down on stage...good times, good times. I'm just thankful the preschool director said he can come back in a few weeks for regular preschool! In her words, "we just have to keep Lucas busy." Glad she already has him figured out!!! :) 

And that's a wrap on not only our week, but alllllll of the VBS programs Ella has attended this summer (3 total)! She's off to tennis camp this week and then only one week after that until...KINDERGARTEN! Eeeeeek!!!!
