. so it's monday, which around here is ry and reed day . and today felt like summer ! especially with the air not working :) . i felt like a kid again, working, playing and being sticky with sweat . i really didn't mind it . but am very grateful that thanks to a great friend it's working again ! this morning reed and i replaced the dead tree with a live one .
. it took some digging, and cutting of roots . elsie even helped :)
. you'd have thought we struck gold when reed found these worms .
. feeling a sense of accomplishment at this point .
. from there it was a piece of cake . back inside and reed helped me paint the little tables for the studio .
. not quite as neatly as if i had done it alone, but i tried to go with it . he actually did pretty good, i shouldn't complain .
. worked on spelling with ry . not his favorite subject so a bit of a challenge to keep it fun .
. and yes, the first day to play in the sprinkler . although, that water is ice cold, no thank you ! but they didn't care .
. reed telling ryan to stop spraying him .
. ryan thinking it's fun to spray him .
. reed showing me how big his brain is .
. ryan's birthday is friday, he'll be the big 1-0 . yeah . last year we took the time right before his birthday to make a time 'capsol' (spelling isn't his thing, remember) not much in it except a rock and a sheet of info all about ryan at the end of his 8th year . it was fun to look back and see what his favorites were, some were the same, some had changed and what was important to him a year ago . it was so fun to read, we decided to do it again .
. i write it because if it was up to him to write it he wouldn't take the time . but he doesn't mind answering my questions . loved doing this . we're going to start doing this with reed too for his next birthday .
. this 90 day photo challenge has me picking up my camera for everything . it's great ! i wouldn't have taken most of these photos had we not been doing this . and these are the ones that over time mean the most !
