things you probably want to know
Fynneus can officially get started on his bike, on two wheels, all by himself. He has been able to ride on two wheels for some time now but getting started has been difficult. Tonight we rode bikes all around the neighborhood and every time he stopped, he started again all by himself.
School is going very well, actually better than I had anticipated. We will start week 5 on Wednesday. We have been keeping to our daily schedule and it has proven to be a good thing for all of us so far.
Tucker got a pocket knife for his birthday and has actually had it in his pocket everyday since.
Rollin is wanting to take swimming and piano lessons and I intend to make this happen as soon as I can work out the details.
Koda still has heart worm and we are still undecided what to do about it. She is not showing any symptoms and seems to be doing very well so far.
Our chickens are not laying eggs yet.
Thadeus has still been tying flies and is really getting good at it.
Tucker can now swim under water and retrieve dive toys.
Tucker has his 2nd loose tooth (bottom front left) which he let/made us all feel today to see just how loose it was.
Rollin asked me yesterday how we all keep from falling off the earth when it is up side down. We are going to the planetarium tomorrow for a follow up to my explanation.
Rollin is also fearless on his bike and he makes it look effortless.
Tucker was eager today to play an arcade style hunting game, knowing, however that I am not fond of hunting or shooting games he explained to me, "first I am going to play the hunting game, but I'm going to pretend that I am just shooting them to sleep and moving them to a better home" . Oh the sweetness, ah my heart.
In yoga today my instructor light heartedly explained to us that "it is not multitasking to attempt several things at once and fail at all of them. If you can only do one thing well at a time, then choose to just do that one thing and do it well." I have thought of that several times throughout my day and also asked myself what is the most important one thing I choose right now, and every time my answer was to be a good mother.
