It's been a challenging couple of months around here. I'll go into more details soon (I promise), but for now I'm going to do what I always do...a one hundred day team recap. Never has this little family of mine been more important to me.
FAVORITES: Watching the transformation of my garden (thanks to some helping hands for making this happen this year), listening to Hamilton (still going strong), white wine season, enjoying meals outside
BIGGEST HURDLE TO OVERCOME: Launching the website I've been working on for the Chippewa Valley Book Festival for the last few months. It's a big guy.
DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE: Completing some house projects. At some point I'll actually have time to focus on the house, right?
FAVORITES: Quality time with the boys, the return of grilling season, rewatching Parks & Recreation, not paying for cable services anymore, rye whiskey
BIGGEST HURDLE TO OVERCOME: Fixing the bare spots in our yard with absolutely no idea about how to do that successfully.
DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE: Finally building the boys their backyard clubhouse. It's going to happen this year.
FAVORITES: Legos, Playmobil (knights and pirates in particular), getting his haircut, reading or listening to The Boxcar Children books, scooting, his Perplexus puzzle, eating ice cream, playing spies
BIGGEST HURDLE TO OVERCOME: Riding a two wheel bike. I know he can do it...it's just "slightly difficult" and that's enough to deter him. Ugh.
DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE: Reading. I mean really reading. He's got the foundation, he just needs to put it all together.
FAVORITES: Legos, Playmobil (knights and pirates in particular), getting his haircut, reading or listening to The Boxcar Children books, scooting, sleeping friends, going to the library, eating ice cream, going for walks -- Notice any similarities between the two boys?
BIGGEST HURDLE TO OVERCOME: Waiting for Chase to get done with school (June 7) so summer can officially begin.
DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE: Graduating! It's actually happening on Wednesday. His teachers decided to keep him in the speech therapy program for longer because they could challenge him on the additional sounds he needs (the ones that aren't even "supposed" to have developed yet). But he's officially ready for the certificate now!
