School has been out for 2 weeks. T Ball Mom continues for a couple of more weeks..
We’ve started swimming lessons again. Max finally overcame his fear to jump off the diving platform without a foam noodle.
My honeysuckle is blooming on the trellis I built many years ago back before kids when I had time for stuff like that and no money to just buy one.It is right outside the window I work at in the dining room and the smell is heavenly. Pay no attention to the pile of kids toys as you look through the gate.
The daylillies have started blooming.
The cherries are getting closer to ripening.
Just opened a fresh new roll of brass wire.
Oh and how could I forget the most important happening so far of the summer. We just took the kids to the park with their bikes and Henry rode for the first time without training wheels. It is the sad life of the country kid that lives on the steep gravel rode that he is the last of his friends to learn how to ride a 2 wheeler. Max will need at least one more try but is close. Nick and I are the exhausted old parents in their mid forties trying to hold off the heart attack while running alongside the kids trying to ride. Mission partly accomplished.
