Such a long time since we posted. Life is busy around here.
B, now 7, is beginning to read and really enjoying books. We are looking for more and more ways to engage him in the process and keep him motivated when it comes to reading. Finding book balanced for him reading level and is interests have been hard. Any ideas out there?
Nalls is becoming more of her own person everyday. She is fierce and strong willed. She is writing well to our surprise and still enjoys climbing jumping and being outside.
This holiday my sister and her husband visited. It was great to host them in many ways the same way we were hosted as a young couple by my in-laws. The kids have really enjoyed the time. Our holidays are getting more and more relaxed as we try to focus more the value of time together. We have even given up on some traditions like putting cookies out for Santa and making our own advent calendars. This year we even had to “move” Solstice to the next week to make it work for everyone. I know we will all enjoy the annual celebration and who cares if it is a week late.
