Summer of No Pants: Weeks 3-5

These past few weeks of summer have been a bit of a blur.

I'm still doing well with my Summer of No Pants.

Week 3 was spent up in Thompson visiting with grandma and grandpa. I wore a few new dresses, but unfortunately, they don't have a full length mirror that I could easily access for daily photos.

But I made it through the entire vacation in a dress! :D Of course, I had to put pants underneath said dresses occasionally when the situation called for hiking.

July 2nd

Week Four was a draining week for us. We had spent 10 hours in the car with two antsy kids on Sunday and then Terry woke up at 5:30 the next morning to go to work. We made it through the entire week just barely. It was hot... like... bathe in a bucket of ice hot.

I took the kids to the wading pool twice. They played in the sprinkler another day while I cleaned out the shed - in a dress! (I had shorts underneath).

I have to confess though. On Thursday last week I cheated. It was 30 degrees C out and I was going to take the kids to the park. There was no way I was going to wear a skirt with shorts underneath. Heck, I didn't even want to wear the shorts. If I had my way, I would have worn my skivvies out to the park hehehe

I mostly wore comfort clothes and repeats this week, so no new photos.

Week 5 started off really awesome though. I made two new dresses!

Terry really likes this dress which I wore to the zoo last Saturday July 9th.

And I made another dress out of the same fabric (only a different colour) and wore it on Tuesday July 12th. I got both of these remnants plus another metre of Canadian themed cotton for Buy 1 get 2 free - cost me about $7.50 altogether. Gotta love 2 dresses for under $10. :D

Things I've learned during these past few weeks:
- it's hot outside and wearing a skirt is tough when you gotta move around with your kids. I feel more cheating days coming on.
- wearing sundresses with a bathing suit underneath is perfect for an afternoon at the wading pool.
