We're Still Around

Yes, we're still here.  We've had a rather rocky month due to moving.  We're living with my parents temporarily.  We're here while we do a major cleaning and remodel of our new home (which we hope to be in by October/November).  I just thought I'd do a quick check-in to report what Robbie's been doing while everything's a bit topsy-turvy.

Robbie's friend, Hopper.  Hopper was found by the pool.

He finished Flat Stanley, by Jeff Brown.  He really enjoyed reading this book to me and I have ordered the next book, Stanley, Flat Again, at Robbie's request.  It should be here tomorrow.

In the meantime, he has started Freckle Juice, by Judy Blume.  He read the first chapter to me this morning and he says that it seems like it will be a good book.  :)

He's plugging away on math and handwriting. (We only brought the three "R"s with us.  We will start back up with our full curriculum once we're in our home... with more room... and fewer distractions.)

We went to West Virginia for a family reunion and Robbie had a blast with all of his cousins.  He even had a sleepover with a few of them in our hotel room.

On the plus side, my parents have a large yard which is adjacent to my brother's large yard, so Robbie now has tons of room to run outside and play.  My mom and dad also have a pool, which only adds to the outdoor fun.  There is a free splash pad here in this town and several nice parks.  We're very excited to be moving (back) here!

I hope to update a bit more frequently, but I can make no promises.

How have you been?

  1. Good to hear from you! I hope life will settle down soon. We are starting back in second grade (public school) next Monday. I wish I could say Anna were more excited :)
