Here’s a little slideshow of our spring/summer shenanigans. Simon’s been crawling up the stairs and climbing onto low beds. He likes to hang out under tables, which forces me to keep it swept, so he doesn’t eat all the scraps….like a dog.
We celebrated our anniversary on June 5th. (Most of these pics are repeats of what I’ve posted on Instagram or FB). We went on our (2nd) date since moving to Dayton. Hit the Oregon District up again for dinner and a walk.
Leo turned 6 in June so we had a couple little “parties” for him. 6 other kids came over to play and I gave them crackers with cheese and salami, apple slices and brownies. Simple and not the least bit impressive, but my focus was on giving Leo a special day with friends. In the picture above, you can see our new sandbox that Joe built. We got rid of our little crab sandbox which the kids were outgrowing.
Hiking in Yellow Springs with Oma and Opa. Of course Simon pooped all over Oma and the Ergo carrier in the woods. (Hence why he ended up in nary a clothes, only diaper)
Doing a tiny bit of “school” on random days. I planned to keep going through the summer, but we’ve pretty much taken the last 2 weeks off. Except we’ve gotten in some math because Leo enjoys the challenge. He’s learning some tricks and patterns in addition and multiplication.
My almost daily habit of drinking a mocha on the porch swing. Always a relaxing few minutes before somebody wakes up or interrupts me. 😉
Sweet little Simon napping next to his Jesus doll, which someone gave him as a baptism present.
I took Theresa and Simon out on a walk yesterday during Leo and Silvia’s first day of Vacation Bible School. Then I tried meal planning on the couch and fell asleep only to wake up and find Theresa had also fallen asleep….on the floor! Next 2 pictures are the kids at the Boonshoft museum, which Phyllis and I went to while Joe and Phil were out of town (on vacation…ahem). Last picture is Theresa asleep at Mass. She fell asleep in the car on the way to church, much to my surprise. The girl just keeps passing out everywhere. 😆
