Just another summer week

Photo-12.06.14-12-50-47

Quick overview of the things we were doing last week.

We went downtown and enjoyed fancy summery look of beautiful Riga’s squares.


Did some eating in a cafe…

We were on a picnic at the nearest meadow (this photo was taken by Veronika).

Days were warm and sunny…

but also windy as we used to in Latvia.

So we took with us our favorite summer amusement: soap bubbles.

Veronika was eager to make a flower band.


I had fun with blowing some bubbles too (this really cool photos were taken by Veronika too).


Marge was just continuing her everyday growing (while I went on loosing my weight).

She was hiding from the persistent sun in her new panama.

Then we were painting outdoors another day.

It was awesome and could be even better, if there would be less wind (do you see, how Anastasia’s shoe is holding her sheet of paper?).


Otherwise, it was great and fun idea! (And again, thank you, Veronika, for this nice picture of us!)

We were walking around and watched a lot of glorious clouds floating in the skies.


And more, and more…


We were buying sweets in the little local store. Kids had their own coins and were paying by themselves. Although my oldest one can do math, I was surprised that she had some troubles with understanding meaning of a change. It was a signal for me that we should practise buying things more, so that Anastasia would be prepared to school in this matter too.


We were visiting library again and read some interesting books with inspiring illustrations inside. I am very fond of children books and can’t get enough of them! This picture was taken on our way to library. Skies were as always so beautiful and threateningly dramatic!

My kids just love watching their photo albums and wondering, who is so small and so cute on those photos and trying to remember things that were pictured.

That is why one of our activities was taking pictures and making collages using an iPad app. We already have printed a few so that girls could put them in their Summer Books.

Another summer week is gone and it left with us rather nice memories.
