Just wanted to do a quick post updating on daily life happenings…
My Dad and I worked on my new dry erase calendar and I am SO pumped about how it turned out. We use it for school every morning to talk about months and days and what our schedule is. It’s fabulous! Thanks, Dad!!
Micah cut his hair…with his swiss army knife…and now I’ve buzzed it all off. =)
Ethan has taken up the harmonica. We received this from Aunt Sal and Uncle Brad, too (thanks, guys!), and he’s thrilled. This is “Hot Cross Buns”. We’ll hope to have some piano updates soon as he’s taking lessons starting Monday!
Ethan also recently beat me in a game of Machi Koro, one of our fav games…he beat me by rolling 2s about a hundred times. It was an epic game because it rarely happens that someone wins the game by never rolling more than one die.
I tried a new meal this week. I’m not sure I can say it was a hit with everyone, but it was fun and unique. Mike and I enjoyed it more than the boys, but they didn’t complain about it! Farro. Kale. Blistered Tomatoes. Soft boiled eggs. Avocado.
We still enjoy a good walk through the park after dinner. I wish this was a daily occurrence, but we probably get out there weekly at this point.
Money burns a hole in these boys’ pockets. They had saved up for a couple months and finally just had to go buy some lego sets. We went to Target after CC and then the rest of the afternoon was very quiet for me. =) Micah did a great job building his set almost all by himself. I sat nearby and corrected a few things here and there, but he did most of it! Ethan raced through 3 different sets (mostly smaller ones) in one sitting!
This evening we went to a birthday party for a boy that played on Ethan’s soccer team a couple years in a row. This was our first time at Boondocks and the boys seemed to enjoy it! It’s a bit of a sensory overload for us, but we had fun! Ethan did not end up doing the race track this time, but he came close! I imagine he’d love it if he was the passenger for his first round.
