Today was Jackson's last day of preschool until September. I think it was a good experience for him to attend a summer session, but I'm definitely ready to have the flexibility to take an overnight trip to the mountains or spend the morning uptown without coordinating with his school calendar.
Since it was Jack's last day, Jesse and I chose to intentionally focus on the trio and make it a fun morning for them. While there were great moments, James and Maddie had at least a dozen tantrums between the two of them. That seems to be the norm lately.
We played outside while Jesse dropped Jackson off. James, Amelia, and Maddie absolutely love their new water table. It retails for $50+ but Aldi had the exact same model for $30. Score!
Next, we painted. James made it twelve minutes before he threw anything. That might be a record for him.
Jesse and I took the trio to Discovery Place Kids. We rarely go there anymore since it's overrun by tiny children and Jackson prefers the museum uptown. It was chaotic as usual, but the trio blended in with the excitement. Here are some of my favorite photos from the museum:
