The lowdown: Use our themes, use your own - just tell us what you're "currently" up to! This week our themes are: enjoying, learning, inspired by, becoming, and indulging in.
Please remember to add your link below so we can find you, and copy and paste the button code in your post so others can find us and link up too! Also, be sure to visit the other participants and say hello - especially my lovely co-host Wendy at This Amazing Day!
Kale is currently ....
Enjoying camp. Or at least that's what his teachers tell me. I find it difficult to tell since he's screaming and crying so hard when I drop him off. I do wait on the other side of the fence to see how long it takes him to settle, which is normally before I have the latch closed. I'm hoping by high school that the transition from home to school gets easier.
Learning to iron granola. It's a skill he's working on. The other morning I got out of the shower and heard something spill. I figured what's done was done and finished getting dressed. That was a mistake. Not only did he dump an entire bag of granola, but he proceeded to iron it (I gave him my old iron with the cord cut off).
Inspired by music. Kale has been throwing down some pretty rad dance moves lately.
Becoming quite the little gentleman. His teachers told me that earlier this week he had a kleenex in his pocket and when one of his friends started to cry, he took out his kleenex and wiped her tears.
Indulging in one last pre-bed ice cream. It's been so hot lately that ice cream after dinner has become a pretty regular thing around here. The problem is that it's way too close to bedtime and he's next to impossible to get to settle on a sugar high. So after a particularly sugar-induced crazy night on Monday, we decided our love affair with the evening ice cream has to come to an end.
Randalin is currently....
Enjoying the cooler temperatures. We've had a much needed break in the heat, which is allowing us to actually enjoy the summer evenings outside. We even made it out for a family bike ride tonight without having to worry about completely melting.
Learning to live with a five foot high cardboard house in my dining room. I really only have myself to blame for this one.
Inspired by one of my favourite bloggy friend Liv, from Soul Singin' Liv. After almost losing her husband in a terrible accident, Liv, her husband, and her girls are back together and figuring out their new life with an incredible amount of courage, optimism, and strength. I am so, so proud of her.
Becoming more than a little stressed about the next few weeks. I have two weeks off at the end of August, but that doesn't mean I have any less work. I just have to get a months worth of work done in the first two weeks. Not to mention the fact that we have no idea what we're doing for our vacation. Or where Kale is going to school in September. No big deal, right?
Indulging in a new iron! I know, totally pathetic right? Since when did a new iron become an indulgent in my life?
Next weeks themes: listening, daydreaming, wanting, looking, and writing.
