The weeks are flying by! I still remember the rush of the first day of summer vacation. I swore we would all sleep in and instead we woke up at 6:30am, like every other day of the school year. Here are a few of the things that made me happy this week.
:: On Monday we didn’t do much, which was great after so many days of walking and spending $30 on three churros. That picture is from the Safari Wild Animal Park in Escondido. They are Impalas, I believe.
:: The boys went to the pediatrician on Tuesday. Nicholas got two shots, clung to me like a crying koala bear, and asked me to sing him his favorite comfort song while he sucked his index finger. I loved every minute of it.
:: The kids spent Wednesday in Andrea’s pool. Afterwards, Mikey and Andrea’s daughter, Taylor, sprawled out on their towels face down to warm up. After collecting enough heat from the sun, they sat up on their elbows and I overheard this conversation:
Mikey: So, what grade are you in?
Mikey: I’m going into 3rd grade.
Mikey: Yeah. I totally know cursive. (Hah! Remember when he didn’t?)
:: On Thursday I read to the boys The Chronicles of Narnia. Actually, I did that all week! Mikey and I love it, but Nicholas is afraid of The Witch. Maybe he’ll like the story more if I make him some Turkish Delight?
:: After so much activity this week, I’m looking forward to a quiet Friday at home. The boys want to go swimming. Something tells me we’re going swimming.
I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this weekend. We’re going here!! I know, probably not everyone’s cup of tea, but I can’t wait.
Happy, happy weekend, everyone.
