Other Updates

We play a lot of ping pong these days. Ethan keeps a score sheet of every game he plays against anyone else in the family. He certainly plays the most games (and usually against me), but we spend a couple hours each weekend out there together and play during school breaks, too. We are very thankful we made this purchase!

Archery is another favorite pastime of the boys.

We’ve gotten back into the routine of doing a workout together every Saturday morning. Mike led us the first weekend (sprints around the park with some push ups thrown in) and I took this past one (a YouTube video of a gal I really enjoy working out with). Ethan is up for next weekend, followed by Micah. It certainly keeps things interesting. (No pictures for these…) Another weekend tradition is to enjoy decaf coffee with chocolate stevia drops and whipping cream. The boys and I indulge in this every Saturday and Sunday morning together.

The boys are signed up to play flag football this season. Nobody gets to play on the Packers, but I also saw that neither of them will be playing against the Packers (phew!) so that will work out just fine. Mike will be an assistant coach for both teams. We’re looking forward to it!

We officially started piano lessons for the fall last week and the boys got new bags!

Micah loves to build LEGO and listen to audiobooks. I think he finished two or three shorter books over this long weekend, in fact. Often he’s building a city scene or a knights scene. This week, though, he built one of the seven wonders of the ancient world (Pharos’ Lighthouse in Alexandria) in honor of CC memory work. I also worked on one, but was not pleased with it. The boys still decided to take a picture of it to commemorate it.

We’ve been enjoying the veggies of our labor. Fresh tomatoes are incredible! And Micah just plucked this bad boy this evening (after getting a fresh new buzz).

Apparently I like taking pictures of food as I have a few more for ya. I splurged last week and got us lemon cupcakes because one of the stories Micah was reading mentioned lemon cake multiple times and it made us really want to have one! And Mike had us all making our own pizzas the other night! Yum and fun!

Lastly, this book is so much fun. I really love it! It’s especially fun to pair with the Louie Giglio video about how big the universe really is.
