We went to Comic-Con for the very first time! A good friend invited us for the day and it was such a good time! Both the girls really loved it and really want to go again someday.
Olivia was in Lego and Star Wars heaven, and Violet was too as well, with the Vocaloid posters, dolls, as well as Pokemon, and other anime that was there.
We enjoyed a Good Vibrations Pre-con, non-con beach day with some unschoolers from the local SD area and also from the LA area.
We've enjoyed a couple of beach days with friends and lots of pool days at home and local with friends. We've been ice skating a couple of times, yes Ice Skating in August is the best!
We've had several visits to local museums like the Flying Leatherneck in Miramar, the Timken in Balboa Beach and the Mingei to see the Maneki Neko exhibit! Next week we'll be going to the Museum of Man with an unschooling group. We took a tour of the Lindberg Airport, where we actually rode a VIP bus on the road around the airstrip. It was amazing to see the number of airplanes coming in and out of that airport daily. They also have a new "green" terminal they are building. We got to see the Bomb sniffing canines in action through a demonstration that the airport tour included.
We've been to a couple of plays, the amazing and indescribable Festival of Arts-Pageant of the Masters, in which a new friend who is an unschooling mom, Tiffani Bearup was one of the models (from freelifeplay.com and also upcoming speaker at Good Vibrations Unschooling Conference. She so kindly gave us a tour of the backstage where we saw the backdrops, the make-up room, wigs, and actually met the director while there!
Such a busy summer!! And, we're really looking forward to the upcoming Good Vibrations Unschooling Conference in Del Mar September 8-11th. This'll be the 2nd year for GV and there's some wonderful Funshops, entertainment, Speakers and activities planned. Olivia will be hosting a Lego Ninjagos Funshop, so if you go please be sure to visit us! Entertainment includes the amazing Amy Steinberg. There will be beach parties, pool movie night, surfing lessons, open mic night, and a post conference picnic in the park!
OH, I'm exhausted just reading all this back! But, really, it's been fun, it's been full, and everyday is spent enjoying life and being fully in every single moment! Thank you dear friends for being in our life and thank you to my dear hubby, Dan, who doesn't always get join in on all of the fun, but is being supportive and joins in as frequently as he can!
