Looks like it will be hot in a large part of the country today! Try and stay and cool.
Our first day is so far so good. This morning we watched a show about the Duggar family (which had 16 kids at the time of this special) as they went on a road trip to Disneyland.
It was amazing to see the stuff they took with them — just food and clothing overfilled their motor home. They had to move some items to a separate trailer just so the motor home could go up the hill.
Ian was fascinated watching their adventures and trying to understand that many people in a family. We’ll be enjoying a family reunion this summer with nearly that number in a small house. So, we’ll see what it’s like. Should be fun!!
As you know I have been working on losing weight. This week my sister-in-law gave me a great suggestion for an exercise video. I am going to see if I can find it. I like being able to exercise at home or in my neighborhood so this will fit in nicely!
Over the last few weeks, I haven’t been losing very much weight, but I have noticed that my body’s shape is changing. And for that I am happy. Some of my clothes are fitting better and are more comfortable.
I have to remember that the changes aren’t only on the scale. In addition, the exercise is getting easier and I can do things for a longer period of time. My baby steps seem to be working!
This week, my husband has made Ian a house out of a cardboard box. They added a mailbox, doorknob, hook for a jacket inside, and a lock. And, Ian has keys.
He is having a great time with his house. And, learning the responsibility of keeping up with his keys is really important. He has drawn a few pictures on the walls — one of a big truck and the other of clouds in the sky — including frames.
The guy time has been great for them and also for me.
Hope you have a great rest of the week! Please share some of what you are doing this summer! I would love to hear from you!
Here is a fun quote for you: “A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.” ~James Dent
