We spent lots of time at the pool, both in swimming lessons (both girls are now swimming short distances independently) and at the local outdoor pools just splashing around. Oh- and the pièce de résistance, Water World. We also spent several days in Grand Lake, Breckenridge, and Winter Park.

Audrey did 3 week-long camps. She danced to live harp music and played in the woods building fairy houses for a week at Fairy Camp. Then she and Lorelei both went to Sunflower Farm for a week. It was Lorelei's first camp experience and she loved it. Last, Audrey spent a week at Avid4Adventure Camp. She said that was her favorite, although she loved them all. With Avid though, she begged for another week, and cried when I told her they were done for the summer. The first day they went rock climbing, the second day they kayaked, the third they mountain biked, the forth they canoed and the last they hiked. They also did some story-time yoga, art and music along with learn tons of new fun group games.

As far as moving closer to our goal of hitting the open sea, and far off ports, our house is under contract! Yea! Keeping the house clean enough for a showing all summer was exhausting. We still have not made it through the inspection process, so I will feel much more at ease once that is completed. The main new worry at the moment though is what to do with all of our stuff.
We have also finished our first aid and CPR class and signed up for the next step, wilderness survival.
Cheers to summer! You will be missed....sort of.
