We're not up to much. I would say we are trying to settle into a routine with the boys school, but Jason only went 1.5 hours each Tuesday and Thursday and Olivia tracked out Friday with an early release day, so there is no routine! Here are some things we have been doing:
Making slide shows for homework! (When did she grow up?!)
Labor Day weekend, we went to Three Bears, which is an outdoor place to be dirty and have fun!
Sled slides, sling shot, outdoor bounce pillow, rolling in big pipe peices:

Mud kitchen and outdoor painting!
Checking out Cary's newest playground and spray ground!
We went to the museum of natural science in Raleigh after Olivia's early release to kick off track out! Olivia loved the bees and tracked the queen bee for at least a half an hour while the boys and I did other activities in the discovery room!
Jason and I finally started Kindermusik!! He loved it! One school year of this and my guilt will be assuaged that I did it earlier and longer with the other two!
The weather hasn't cooled much, so we are enjoying the shade in the afternoon on our new back patio!
Jason's school is getting a little easier for him each day! His teachers send me pictures and say that the playground is his happy place! :)
We discovered an open gym for toddlers and preschoolers near us and Jason loves it!
Olivia and I had some rare girl time this week while Jason was at school! This girl is sweet and happy and full of energy! We sewed a project we have a hard time working on with the boys around, and went for a hike at a park between the boys' schools.
I pulled out my zinnias and tomato plants last weekend since they were drying up and looking scraggly. This was the last bouquet!
And Olivia's violin teacher, after much practice of posture, plucking of the the violin strings, moving fingers up the neck of the violin, practicing holding the bow first using Mom's finger and then a market and then the actual bow, finally allowed Olivia to touch the strings with the bow!! Olivia was so excited!
I got this text and picture from her teacher, who adores Olivia: perfect square position!!
Leo continues to love "martial arts", which he asked to join because that was one skill Batman taught Robin, and earned his first stripe Monday!
