for family night this week my husband said, "let's all pick something that we want to work on for half an hour every day" (he's been needing to get a project done and needed some motivation and support, I'm thinking).
Fletcher : I'm going to learn to read!
Connor: I want to cook!
Me: A hobby. Any hobby! 1/2 hour will be more time than I'm getting now...
Him: said project
and so far so good. Fletcher is practically learning to read without us, the cute little guy; and Connor has baked/made something every day all week.
3 of the 4 have been dessert-type foods but who's counting?
today was the last day of swim lessons. we go back in august for another round and I'm glad. while my little one is no longer terrified to get his face wet at all, he still has a ways to go before I let him in the pool without his ring on.
