Yesterday afternoon we went to a friend’s house for a playdate. Ds and his buddy had a great afternoon building a small fort outside and climbing a tree.
Today I spent much of the day cutting the grass. Yeah!! Actually, I don’t mind the job. I have such a feeling of accomplishment afterwards. No, really I do! And it smells sooo nice. The grass that grows over our septic tank gets REALLY long. It feels like I’m cutting hay or something.
We also went for a bike ride with the kids. Again. Now that dd is going without training wheels she just wants to ride and ride. Now I’m definitely going to have get a bike. I haven’t been in a rush because dd rode slowly enough for me to walk beside. Now they both go so far ahead. Then Adrian came along this evening and I was, of course, totally left behind. I’m happy for dd, though. She felt left out when ds and Adrian took off and she had to stay behind with me going slow. It was a joy to watch the three of them together. Now I’ve gotta get a bike so I can join them!
My friend who was in hospital for appendicitis got out today. She was in hospital for a week. My poor friend. Her appendix actually burst so recovery is taking longer. She was in quite a bit of pain early on after the surgery. I’m glad to report that she’s doing better.
