We've been plotting and choosing and rethinking and worrying about houses. I feel really fortunate to be able to make decisions like how big/how stylish/where our new house will be, but it's still very hard.
We've been playing and losing a lot of Old Maid, Go Fish and Go Monkey. Also I found out a couple of days ago that Calvin cheats. Which is ok, since I cheat too.
We've been outside. My cheeks are red and shiny, Calvin's left cheek has that red splotchy part that means I need to remember to put sunscreen on him, and Norah's arms are no longer milky white. Nate wore a t-shirt instead of a button-down to mow the back 40 last weekend and our front tree swing has sunk pretty low to the ground.
Outside notes about this stage of kiddies: Calvin is pretty trustworthy out there; he will ask to go talk to neighbors and only goes as far as our property if I ask him to. Norah is unsteady on the grassy hills, and still scoots a little bit out there, but loves to "Go!" out. She especially loves the "WAH" wagon.
