From my peaceful porch . . .
Josh and I made it — we didn’t leave until hours later than planned and checked in at 10pm because #surgery but we are here and I am happy and so grateful for this mini-respite from the rest of life.
(I consoled myself yesterday by watching 2 episodes of Bad Vegan, my god that is some wild #(%*&$, wow.)
2 updates as I wait for Josh to sign out so we can head to our massages:
1- I am almost done creating my summer reading list! I was actually done until I saw this post from Jessica and realized that a) I am missing an Elin Hildebrand (such as this one) which is basically a summer essential and b) the new Taylor Jenkins Reid Carrie Soto is Back comes out in August and looks awesome, except that late August is technically past my personal definitely of summer since the kids are back in school for weeks by then.
We had a lovely Patreon discussion of summer reading yesterday which inspired my list making.
2- Kids have ONE WEEK left in school (and it’s a short week, too)! I am not sure how that happened, but 4th grade / 2nd grade / pre-pre-K (not sure what else to call it) are in the books. It’s a tiny bit anticlimactic because all 3 will remain in their classrooms next year (Montessori groupings at their school are early childhood ages 3-6, then 1st-3rd, 4-5th, and then there’s the middle school – not even sure how that part works). Thankfully they all love their teachers!
Lovely benefit of them all going together is that both G&C got to visit A’s science fair booth.
(By the way, YES, color does impact taste according to her results. It was a good experiment!)
Okay hopefully Josh is done signing out because it’s massage time. Happy and peaceful Friday to all. (And let me know if anything obvious is missing from my reading list!)
