Here we go. Somehow another 100 day has flown by. A team update is in order…whether I have the time to reflect on what’s happening with these little guys or not. Enjoy!
FAVORITES: Dried mangos (still), reading (I've managed to squeeze in a couple of my own books lately), summer bike trips, lazy mornings, wedding talk/prepping/festivities with my brother and future SIL, mowing the lawn (if only it didn't mean putting everything else off for 1.5 hours), [finally] finishing up some projects around the house
BIGGEST HURDLE TO OVERCOME: Figuring out how to balance more work while the boys are still at home.
DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE: Getting summer to slow down a little.
FAVORITES: Learning to play Mindcraft to placate the boys, his new slip-on shoes, spending time with his brothers, family bike rides (he even got a real tune-up for his bike this year), an afternoon cocktail
BIGGEST HURDLE TO OVERCOME: Going to bed early enough. It seems harder to call it quits for the night during the summer months. Why is that?
DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE: Seeing our new dining room furniture. It's coming this week!
FAVORITES: Reading (like, all the time), honing his piano skills (he might not love to practice, but he does like how good he's getting!), bike riding, summer ice cream trips, playing video games, talking about Minecraft (with anyone who will listen), trips to Stevens Point, swimming in the deep end, lego creations, playing soccer games
BIGGEST HURDLE TO OVERCOME: Patience with Miles when playing games. It's no fun for the little one when the big one always wins. But how do you explain to a seven year old that he shouldn't try his hardest all the time?
DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE: Seeing his friends again. It's sweet when they are actually looking forward to school starting back up again.
FAVORITES: Sorting rocks, playing with Blossom (the hamster), biking around the block (without training wheels), collecting yo-yo bear cards, digging through his desk, bubbly water, Fairfax pool waterslide, Pokemon, water balloon fights, playing soccer games
BIGGEST HURDLE TO OVERCOME: Having to wake up Blossom to spend time with him. It turns out tricking him with food tends to work pretty well.
DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE: Dog-sitting Max again. This time for a whole week!
