Summer Silliness

Ah…the glorious days of summer continue!

It had been pretty warm for a while here, even getting up into the 100’s for several days. Of course, it is especially fun to play with the hose when it is so warm (which often leads to the silliness shown above).

Despite the heat, we still enjoy our outside time even without water:

There is never a shortage of things to do…

Our nap schedule remains in a transitional period: sometimes we nap, sometimes we don’t. We try to keep bedtime around 8:00 to 8:30 but it certainly varies, and gets later during the summer. It seems perfectly reasonable to not want to go to sleep while it is still light outside so bedtime is later around the summer solstice. On no-nap days, this might happen at 6:00 PM (but it is a rare occasion):

Falling asleep at the table at 6 PM!

The rains have picked up again and temperatures have dropped. It has been downright chilly in the evenings and mornings. Aaron wore a vest on his early morning walk today and I wore long sleeves and long pants….in July! Today at 7:15 AM, it was 59 degrees.

All the rain means we get to look for snails. We spend lots of time observing them. Then we try to return them to their original location (sorry snails for derailing your snail expeditions).

Happy summer!
