July 4th was great. I did end up going over to my friend's house. We had a nice cookout and fun listening to music and talking. I met a couple of her friends who were really nice. Even the fireworks were still fun, despite the rain that decided to pour down just as it was getting dark enough to actually do them! After the fireworks, we still visited for awhile. It was a great night.
Aurea has decided that she wants to play soccer. I'm concerned because she has never wanted to play soccer or been very athletic. She quit gymnastics because she couldn't listen and focus enough to actually learn anything. She did great in cheerleading. She expressed no interest in soccer or any other sport until we received a brochure in the mail from Upward (the church program where she cheerleads for basketball in the winter) for soccer registration. Now she suddenly wants to play soccer. I don't mind her trying new things, I just hate to pay a huge registration fee just for her to start and then back out. I guess we will see how things go.
Adam is doing great. He is so excited that the new Harry Potter movie starts today. This is "our thing," we always go to see the Harry Potter movies together. I was hoping to take him tomorrow night. Unfortunately, I probably won't have a babysitter tomorrow night and I don't think Aurea could handle the movie. We will see it sooner or later though.
Aurea has a dentist appointment today and both kids have wellness checkups on Friday. Fun, fun! Seriously though, I'm trying to get doctor appointments, errands, and all of the not-so-fun stuff out of the way before school starts back. Hopefully, this will prevent having to go during the school year and kids having to miss classes. That is the plan, let's just hope none of the appointments require a follow-up a month from now (school starts Aug. 12)!
