We filled our last days of summer with lots of activity. We had a few playdates, a few injuries, a bit of reading and biking, some babysitting, and exploring the creek near piano lessons!
I’ve learned that Ethan is very motivated – like me – by charts and goals. He was pretty eager to reach his 50 mile biking goal before school started. So on Saturday, we biked around Cherry Creek Reservoir (and Ethan biked over a huge bull snake in the process EEK). We spent over two hours out there and biked over 12 miles. But he was pumped to reach that goal! He’d like to ride 100 miles over the school year. =) Micah is more motivated by prizes, so he was also pretty eager to finish his reading chart for the year so that he could get the prize I had promised. We were super proud of both of them!
And in preparation for the new CC school year, I had a bunch of the tutors over to our home for training and dinner. Mikey was out of town, so the boys had to tuck themselves in bed that night all by themselves. Milestone. And adorable. =)
