Day One Hundred and Forty-One thru One Hundred and Forty-Three

Slow days....

Ava has been running a fever from teething the last few days so we haven't done much aside from me going to school and going to Nan's for lunch yesterday.  Today the fever is finally down.  Yay for that!!!


142-day one of the fever

143- Chillin' on the couch...

Day One Hundred and Forty

A day at the park...

Well, it had been a somewhat dreary week and Friday was actually nice so it was off to the park for Ava and I.  We went first to the Amish market and got yummy strawberries, zucchini, and peach jam.  I really wish I had gotten a photo of the strawberries.  They were such a deep red all the way thru and were so sweet.  Ava LOVED them.

When we got to the park I was disappointed to find the equipment was too hot.  Ava ran to the swing which is black.  I mean really, whose design idea was that, can't we have a lighter color rubber?  Ava did not understand that it was hot so I had her touch it and she said "hot" and then pushed the swing in defiance.  I mean how dare that swing be hot right.  So she proceeded to walk her way to the equipment and I helped her climb the slide but then she turned to sit to come down it and said "hot" and smacked the slide.  Again, how dare it be hot.  Poor thing just couldn't figure out why it was all hot but being a kid she found fun in climbing and walking all of the steps so I sat back and taped her.  I believe at one point she even says "hot" because even the rails were hot.

Needless to say we didn't hang around long.  We went back to the car for a drink and I tested to see if she would be okay with leaving by asking if she wanted to get in.  She must have been over the hot park because she was actually ok with going.  That doesn't happen often; not after such a short visit.  We came home and she got a lunch of chicken nuggets, green beans, and an enormous amount of strawberries.

Day One Hundred and Thirty-Eight & Day One Hundred and Thirty-Nine

A new page....

My summer schedule is changing things up a bit and it will take some getting use to.  I am working to incorporate more activities for Ava to give her a chance to explore and learn through art, music, and physical activity.  We also will have weekly visits to Nans because I think they both enjoy that time.  Her is a scene from our visit last week.  Nan is replacing the batteries to a remote control car for Pop and Ava to play. If you look close enough you can see the top of Missy's head.

O and as for the next day, let's see that was last Thursday, I got in one of my new books for this semester.  The other one actually came today.

Crap...why does my summer already sound busy.
