Widgets and Summer Fun

I added some widgets to my sidebar and now I feel super fancy.

This little guy and I are having the BEST summer

We try to fill our early mornings with outside fun before it gets too miserably hot: the park, the pool, playing with trucks on the back porch. Before naptime or just after we go to the Brogan Museum of Arts and Sciences to see giant animatronic bugs, cool sciency children’s stuff, and beautiful Italian Baroque paintings, the Museum of Florida History to see Mastadon bones and a steam ship replica, or the Library to pick out books and do Storytime. In the late afternoons we play inside, bake and cook, and occasionally watch Beauty and the Beast, Milo and Otis, or How Garbage Trucks are Made. It’s a wonderful routine and I’m loving it.

I love your sidebar! Wnen is your due date?

I’ve had a bit of a cold lately, so our summer routine for the past few days has been silly and boring, but I do love summers and yours sounds amazing!

Hey, I’m reading Learning All the Time by John Holt and loving it. You would really like it; he’s got some gems in there.

I’ll check out the book, Amy! We got “Pelle’s New Suit”, one of the Elsa books, from the library last week and really liked it! Thanks for the recommendation!

Sorry you’ve been feeling under the weather. I am no good to the world when I’m sick and feel it is my due to watch bbc miniseries in bed and sip on hot tea whilst I complain to everyone about how miserable I feel. I imagine you’re less ridiculous.

Due date is October 13th! Sounds far away but this pregnancy is flying by. I know it’ll be here before I know it and I’m trying to enjoy each sweet day with just Benjamin. Give kisses to your boys and baby girl!
