Hello Summer! :) Well actually the first day wasn't so great. Spencer was having some digestive issues. Thad was out of town so I got to take him to the vet Fortunately they figured him out right away. They put him on some meds that got things cleared right up.
See? Already feeling better and back to his sunny spot.
This is Hank's usual spot anytime I'm eating.
The kids have rode scooters, a skateboard, and a pogo stick. They've played four square (and two square), basketball, and baseball. They've played on the rope swing. They've read and wrote and drawn. We've played Exploding Kittens and Monopoly Deal. Clara set up shop on the sidewalk to sell her creations.
She's built blanket forts and he's played the piano. She's made friends with the ice cream man. They've argued and cried and hugged and made up. And it's only been one week of summer.
We've hit up a few yard sales. Man, this one made me wish we had a record player.
And the biggest news of all?! They got new bikes this weekend. They learned to ride last summer but didn't have much experience or confidence. Once we got bikes that actually fit them and worked well... they just took off! We've ridden 5-10 miles each day.
So far, so good Summer. This week we start back with swim lessons. :)
