At least we have the pool and dive team practice to give us some sort of regular schedule.
Here is Dorothy with screens but poolside. That's so summer!
A picnic in the front yard! Yep.
We have been trying to get out for a curbside errand or a walk most afternoons to break up the really crabby time before dinner. We found this lovely pond and a path through a 7 acre reclaimed prairie right by the kids' dentist office. Who knew?
Also there was a Bucky!
We asked Jack what he wanted as a straight-A treat, expecting tech requests or cash. HE WANTED TO COOK EVERYONE BREAKFAST FOR DINNER!!!
More diaper practice:
I gave all the boys their second round of COVID cuts.
Dorothy got a mermaid tail.
Jack is THRILLED to be back on the boards for a season of practice.
So thrilled I don't even know if he will miss the meets!
If you can't tell, we are all loving the pool.
We are starting to add in summer school stuff. We're beginning with regular reading (that I am checking up on--- not the reading they do before bed) and journaling every day. Here they are making collage covers for their journals:
Also because I am a speech person, they present their journal entries to the group every day, and they have started writing in jokes to perform and delivery notes, and I am loving it.
Buddy the Elf built his bday LEGO in NO TIME:
We had a diaper race. Dorothy won, but everyone got it where it needs to go in less than 40 seconds!
We've also been working on swaddling
Cooper is especially hooked.
Dorothy would like to have this pregnancy pillow when I am done:
MOAR POOL-- now she is brave enough to swim solo in her tail.
Bubbles of disappointment after the pool was too busy to swim after dinner the other night.
