Yup. He stands alone. Oye. He isn’t even 9 months yet. I need time to adjust to this.
Chris is already well into his second week of 2nd grade. He’s reading, doing homework, and keeps begging me to let him do “mad science” afterschool. I have no idea what that is. He hates waking up though. Mornings are rough, to say the least. And his school doesn’t even start until 8:35, the latest start time in the district. I just call Charlie, and tell him to do his work… and he gives Chris a big wet bulldog kiss. Chris and Charlie are best buddies, so he never gets mad :).
Joey is counting down to his first day. They are on different schedules, which isn’t the easiest, but I love Joey’s school, so I deal. He is enjoying having 1 on 1 time with Ethan. They play so well. They laugh like the best of friends.
As summer busyness is winding down, Paul and I are taking on house chores, finally. Joey and Chris share a room, they are going to have khaki walls and it will be decorated with vintage games and a vintage model airplane hanging from the ceiling.
Ethan rooms alone. He has light blue walls (the middle swatch in the pic), and goldfish decor. We are going to be doing these fish decals in orange, i’m also going to frame some of the fish fabric I used in his quilt for picture decorations. I am thinking about having my friend make me some stuffed goldfish for a mobile. The before-
And Paul has begun plans for an outdoor fort. We are still undecided on whether we want it in the avocado tree, or stand alone. I am also finishing the upstairs bathroom this week, and getting all of the crown moulding put in upstairs and down. It’s quite a list.
