Our {Wonderfilled} Week 3

Phew! These past few days we have been going at warp speed
trying to soak up as much of what is left of summer
before school starts next week.

For this wonder*filled week, I am especially grateful for the time
we have spent making these memories together
with friends and our little family of seven.
Getting out together is our priority right now,
it takes much planning and effort
physically, financially, but every time
we do something
our bond grows even more.
Not that we can't do the same
hanging out at home,
but there is something so special
about watching 5 of your boys excited, thrilled,
and happy all in the same moment.

From fire safety days to a water park party,
 to a spontaneous Friday night swim,
to the PBS Kids Chicago Fun n' Run,
to a few hours out with my main guy
to celebrate a friend,
to watching dreams come true...
Beckham and Griffin "driving" fire trucks
and Ethan seeing the Kratt Brothers up-close.
I am thankful for so many treasures this week!

We also filmed a spot for WTTW 11,
Matt and E talked while I stared into the camera.
The boys did great, I took the directions a little too literal,
look into the lens and smile,
apparently I thought that meant don't breathe or blink.
Lucky I didn't pass out!
Obviously not a big fan of the spotlight,
but I am sure my boys were adorable, so who cares!
Just if you see it, don't mention my zombie camera face
if you still want to be friends ok?!

Linking up to the woman who has 
inspired the gratitude movement...

Well I may be slowing down a little this week 
to grab those moments with E before school begins,
I will be posting about all things Wild Kratts...
if you have kids between 3-8 years of age,
you of course know them!!
Including a tutorial for your very own creature power suit!
I have a super cool giveaway coming up soon too
that I can't wait to share!  

Wishing you all the best end-of-summer memories!!
