Friday Favorites-June 7th, 2019 Edition


I had big plans of sleeping in late, way too late bedtimes, and days spent completely by the pool but I’ve gotta be honest-the three big kids all had camp this week so it didn’t really look like that.

Needless to say, I’m PUMPED about no camps today and am looking forward to a fun FRIDAY!  I’ve linked up with Andrea and Narci and we’re sharing our FRIDAY FAVORITES!  I’ve started sharing FIVE FAVORITES each week and this one will be no different.  🙂

Summer nights are absolutely my FAVORITES!  I’ve been completely off my dinner “A” game and we’ve pretty much had sandwiches, take out, or eaten out every night for a week.  

Our local high school conducts a variety of sports camps for elementary and middle school kiddos.  It’s one way for our kids, who live in a large town, to make the high school mean a little something to them at such a young age.  My kiddos have gone for the last several years and it’s one of their FAVORITE things about summer.  They get to be active, learn some new skills, and have a lot of fun with their friends.  

Our local baseball team headed to STATE yesterday and the football campers got to be a part of the crowd cheering them on.  My boys thought this was so cool!

You guys know this about me…pets just aren’t my thing.  But a FAVORITE this week is friends who will let my kiddos pretend they have a pet for a while.  Some sweet baseball friends let Britt walk around with their puppy several times at Bowen’s baseball game.  Britt thought she was hot stuff with that dog’s leash!  FAVORITE moment for Britty!

#4 BOOKS!!
More reading time is on the summer horizon!  I have a list of must-reads, but if you have a FAVORITE book suggestion-PLEASE SHARE!!  We head out on vacation soon and I’m working on loading my Kindle!

One morning this week the boys were waiting for their carpool and Britt and I were outside keeping them company.  Please watch what happened…all smiled for me.  🙂

Britt captured about to hit Bowen in the head.  Her allegiance lies with Nixon.  #always

Everyone made up and pretended like that incident never happened.

Then these faces…

And the kid on the right was DONE. 

Hope you guys are enjoying your summer!  Slaughters sure are.  🙂

    I have a few book suggestions. I actually just mentioned "How To Walk Away" on the blog today. It's a fun beach read. I'm also reading "On Folly Beach" I'm only half way through, but I like it so far. It's another good beach read.

    Hooray for the first week of Summer! But like you guys, we’re still finishing up all sports and dance activities so other than school, we’re still crazy busy this week!

    Enjoy catching up on reading! You have to try the Peachtree Bluff series by Kristy Woodson Harvey. The 3rd one just came out and they’re the PERFECT Summer reads!

    I know it's bed head in these pics, but I really like Britt's hair down. Stick a little bow in on the side and it'd be so cute. Looks like she has much more hair with it down. She is still so tiny, but looks to have a big personality. 🙂 Sweet pics!

    Angie-she doesn’t leave a bow in when her hairs down so it ends up looking like a hot mess. She also prefers it up. I’m sure when she’s older she’ll wear it down more but for now she wants a “pony” most days.

    So cute! I had a total mom fail with camps this week. Apparently I ordered the boys t-shirts in Adult Mediums instead of Youth Mediums… They came walking out of baseball camp on Wednesday wearing them over their clothes like nightgowns. 😂🤦‍♀️ They were not happy and I felt so bad!

    That picture progression is hilarious! I too had hopes of sleeping in now that school is over but have been woken up around 5 AM each day as my husband's busy season is amping up to be the busiest ever and he keeps going into work earlier and earlier.
