I forgot to start a new document after Donovan’s birthday!  Oh well, it’s still all written down.

Donovan’s summer!

The end of summer was all about Jamaa for both Donovan and Serenity.  Serenity’s birthday party theme was Animal Jam, and we turned the play room upstairs into Jamaa.  I painted murals on butcher paper for each of the lands, and collected all the tents, forts, crazy forts, sheets, and fancy fabric for the kids to make dens to sleep in.  The party was a sleepover, and the kids all made their own dens with inspiration from Animal Jam.  Well, the Serenity and DZ have continued this all summer, making a dozen different dens and having sleepovers in there all summer.  It was such a blast!  They are sleeping in their own beds now that school has started but I cleaned out all the old dens and the playroom is ready for new building =)

Legos

Donovan did lots of lego kits this summer!  Barrett even came over one day to help him build one of his big birthday sets! So fun!  And he gave me the purple lego air dragon for my birthday and built it with me.  I love the Lego Elf sets, they are adorable!  He can do pretty much all of it by himself now, except for a few of the harder types of pieces that he still needs me to put together for finger strength.  And it’s more fun to do with company, but most things are!

Donovan had a blast in California =)  He got to play with Vanaema and Farfar for hours, had a sleepover with Evan, and lots of Pokemon Go time =)  He rode a bicycle with training wheels at Jack’s birthday, and loved it!

 

He was thrilled when we got the new computer desks for the living room, and claimed one for his own to do homework!  He has been very concerned about where he would do his homework, since Serenity always did hers at the desk in the kitchen.  Problem solved!
