We’ve been on the go this past week. Bustling around town doing different things seems to make the warm weather season fly by! But who can resist spending the days out carousing around town when the sun is shining and the skies are bright blue?
*On Friday last week Matt took a (rare) random day off or as we like to call them in our family – a mental health day. We took the boys to the Museum of Transportation. They enjoyed two train rides around the grounds, spent lots of time in the Discovery Zone (which is basically a little boys dream playroom with every “transportation” toy known to man), and loved crawling on and wandering through all the train cars.
*We have been spending a ton of time outside playing. John is still in love with his Power Wheels tractor and Nathan runs from one activity to another. Both boys are enjoying their swing set and love playing on the slide together. As a bonus – I’ve gotten some work done in the yard and garden.
*Spent the early part of this week cleaning and organizing the art/craft closet. I didn’t feel like trekking out on the one rainy morning of the week so I tackled the closet instead. I’m happy with the results! And just as soon as my hubby gets home from his business trip I’ll be even happier (he’s been assigned the duty of moving the wall mounted fire extinguisher that hangs in the closet).
*Wednesday was John’s last day of Early Childhood! Next year he’ll be attending Pre-K so he’ll be at a different school with a different teacher. We’re thrilled he’s progressing enough to move to Pre-K but it will bring with it some new challenges. The school bus won’t pick him up next year (something he’ll be extremely disappointed by once he figures it out) so I’ll have to drop him off and pick him up 5 days a week at a school across town. Luckily, he’s in the morning program so drop off is at 8am and pick up is at 10:30am (no naptime interference). It will be a transition for everyone!
*Made tentative plans to take a Friday Field Trip this week. Assuming one of our buddies are free we’ll be headed to the Butterfly House tomorrow. I’m excited as I haven’t been there since I was a kiddo and we have had free carousal tickets for a little over a year now! We’re going to try to make Friday Field Trips a regular thing this summer. Mommy is excited even if the toddlers have no clue…
*Just to share a joyful moment – as I sit here in the bathroom typing up my post while the little boys bathe…..I just want to ask….is there anything better than little boys giggling in a bathtub and the echoes that bounce off the walls from such delight? I think not!
