At Home For The Summer

It's certainly has been one lazy Summer! We were hit, with what I thought was, Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease. Turns out, it wasn't. However, while waiting we quarantined ourselves for a little over a week. I got used to not going anywhere, so we did not venture out for what seemed like a really long time. It was nice. I got into the routine of having to take the kids out; feeling as though they would be missing out if they were home too much. Forget that! We have worked in the yard and garden. They have had time to really enjoy their Summer exploring the yard and really playing with one another. The imaginative games they have created are nothing short of amazing. The bond they have strengthened really makes me all warm and squishy.

There has still been plenty of learning, for those who are worried. The never ending questions barraging me all day long has not ceased at all. If anything, they have increased. Eli is famous for his "What if..." questions. "What if purple was murple?" "What if you pooped through your belly button?" What if my name was Odin and Odin's name was Eli?" "What if all the letters in the alphabet were upside-down?"
