That having been said, this time with my nuclear family has been amazingly relaxing and productive. There was bike riding, swimming, yummy grilled food, toy purging followed by trips to the recycling center and Goodwill, and we are about ready to move Ethan to the Thomas the Tank Engine bed (sooner than expected because he is now climbing freely from his crib at will).
In addition to the aforementioned fun, there was...
|a lot of running|
|a long nap or two (note Andrew's Woody/Buzz tuck-in that happened sometime in the middle of one of his naps)|
|hanging of two new canvases|
|finally getting around to covering the remaining five dining chairs|
|and today, right now, RAIN from tropical depression Beryl. we had big afternoon swimming plans, too. [sigh]|
