Here are a couple of shots taken in NY:

Back at home we had a full day. In the morning, I took the kids to the craft store so I could get the remaining supplies I needed for VBS and some beads for my knitting. Sadie ended up popping the top off of the beads and we spent about 10 minutes crawling around on the floor picking them up...yes, we did. Then we stopped at Trader Joe's. Both stores are about 35 minutes from home. We got home about 11:30 and I made the kids peanut butter and jelly pizza for lunch. After lunch, I got some paintbrushes out and some cups of water and gave them to the girls to "paint" the walkway and driveway. They had a blast. This was on our summer bucket list (as was the NY city trip).
Later in the day, I made the little girls pocketbooks from green felt and read The Big Green Pocketbook (a favorite) to the kids and we did the lapbook from Homeschool Share to go along with it.

Look at her beaming. I'm glad she enjoyed the day.
