Hello again. Long time no see, eh?
My 84 year old grandpa has had 2 accidents (in his house, not the car) this week. So almost every single spare moment we have had has been spent at his house this week. Hopefully things are improving with him now, the whole thing has been a bit more stressful than I realized until I tried to lay down to sleep every night.
We did manage to get to the annual church picnic with Jack yesterday, and good times were had by all. We rode the rides, played the games and listened to the music. We also had a junk food fest. Hot dogs, caramel corn, candy apples, funnel cakes, pretzels and more. Yummy.
Jack would have stayed on that purple dinosaur ride all day if he could have. He rode it 3 times in a row. Last year's favorite was the cars, which were not a big hit this year.
He also loved riding in the "chair" on the carousel. He would wave at me and yell "Hi mama!" everytime he went by. Silly goose.
This week has also brought Jack having a real desire to choose his own clothing, sleeping until 9 am (hallelujah!), asking me to stop every freight train we see so that he can ride on it, the discovery of baseball cards, catching fireflies in the yard at dusk for the first time (that was awesome), a Katy trail bike trip complete with ice cream, answers to the question "how old are you?" (number 2) and "how old will you be in October?" (number 3), an 8:30 bedtime instead of 7:30 (see sleeping until 9 am again) and plenty of playtime with his favorite neighbor now that the kids are out of school.
Summer is certainly here. I found some good stuff at garage sales, hopefully I will have time to take pictures with my new camera this week. And I have a sewing project that is nearly complete. A small one, but, still a sewing project.
