It's finally summer in Seattle. We went to the zoo a few weeks ago and the girls got to feed a giraffe. It was really cool. Nora giggled the whole time except when she tried to climb over the barrier and the guy made her stay on this side of it. She was a bit miffed. Emma did her animal report on giraffes so she really thought it was fun to see his long tongue. While we were at the zoo having lunch, Nora took a 15 minute walk without me knowing where she was.(along with 4 other adults) She's sneaky that way. She decided to tour around for a while as I frantically looked for her at the penguin exhibit, the exit and the gift shop. She was at the carousel checking things out. Not worried a bit that she was "lost". FUN times I tell ya.
Camp started this week at Nora's school. Thank goodness. I was going a bit batty there for a while with all the unstructured time on our hands. We (I) don't do well without a schedule and planned activities. There is a lot of whining and crying and complaining that we are bored (by all 3 of us!). Nora qualified for Extended School Year due to potty training and social skills. Emma and Nora both get to go and the bus picks them up at our house! Yay!!!!!!! Nora is doing well with the potty training. She still wont' poop on the potty. The other day she was naked (surprise) in the back yard and came in telling me there was poop on the grass. Sure enough, she'd pooped in the grass just like ollie. nice .
It is supposed to get into the 90's today. Seattle isn't set up for hot weather. No one has AC and/or pools. We'll have to get the sprinkler out and stay cool in the backyard.
Alex and I celebrated our 8th anniversary last night and went out for a wonderful dinner with our good friends. It was lovely. Seems like we've been married a whole lot longer than 8 years. We've been together for 15 years so that could be why.
We put a new navigation system and back up camera in my swagger wagon so I don't run anyone over. It could happen.
Thanks for checking in
