First day of Summer


Yes, I said 'Summer', because that is what it felt like here today. The last week and a half have been quite warm, and we have been drinking our coffee outside almost everyday. This morning when we were going to the library, it was balmy out. I just couldn't believe how similar it felt to last August when we first moved here. I guess the old stereotypes of Midwest weather (it is either Hot or Cold) are really quite appropriate.

Today after Joseph's nap I took Spot for a walk, and wore Joseph on my back in the Ergo. When we got back I was positively sweating, and had to put on a short sleeved shirt. We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing in the backyard and Joseph mostly played in the dirt. Here he is stopping for a snack. He is wearing his new Boy Shoes. I don't know why, but that is what he calls them. I think that maybe when I was sorting through the shoes at the store I might have said something about boy shoes and girl shoes.
