We spent the day at the Austin Zoo with Kel and her goddaughter, Tyler. Shawners wanted to see the lions and the snakes and Justinbustin wanted to get in the petting zoo area even though they had all kinds of big ol' goats in there. We rode the train around the hill country and chatted about her road trip to New York with her good friend who just moved up there, then picnicked with the peacocks, feeding them grapes and apples as we ate. It was sooo hot we were rubbing ice cubes up and down our legs and arms and they would melt into nothing within a matter of seconds. We were hoping to hit Barton Springs afterwards but Tyler lasted the whole four hours and was ready to hit the sack by the time we left. The boys somehow stayed up on the drive home and we shopped Target for some things to stay organized once we get started back on the school year.
I'm so excited to be homeschooling him this year and still have him in a school setting with all the opportunities that brings! He's already got a friend from the review class that will be in his class. Saturday we had a pool party for the 2nd graders and met many of the moms and dads of the kids who will be in his class and J got to know them too!
