This Week of no camp

I’ve been absent this week, because Gage had a rare week of no camps so we were able to spend lots of quality time together.  It was a really good week even though the heat has been a bit unbearable the last few days.

Fave pic of the week

IMG_0738 This may be a pic that that only a mom can love, but every time I look at it I crack up.  Gage got a haircut this week and because she offered I told her to spike it up into a mohawk.  Gage doesn’t like gel in his hair so his reaction was priceless.  He proudly showed it off the rest of the day 🙂

Highlights of the week  We did go to the Tall Ship Festival last weekend with my parents.  The ships were cool, but the lines were long and there wasn’t as much for Gage to do as I was led to believe from the promotions.  It was still fun and I have a new favorite shot of dad and son…IMG_0722 (3) .  On Friday we visited the Botanical Garden with Grandma and we spent a very hot few hours there.  It’s one of our favorite places and we hadn’t been in awhile…IMG_0833 (2) It was so hot he had the sand box to himself for 30 minutes (at least it was in the shade) We had a fun play date with an old friend on Tuesday and yesterday Gage and Jason went swimming at another friend’s house (the highlight here is that I got some alone time in the house 🙂 )

Could’ve been better  No real complaints this week.  Even a doctor’s appointment that involved taking blood and a hand x-ray turned out just fine.  It was routine and not a big deal.

Finished reading  I finished Title: Peace Is Every Step : The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life, Author: Thich Nhat Hanh and wrote about it here.  Gage and I finished up our months long President studies by finishing Title: Grover Cleveland, Again!: A Treasury of American Presidents, Author: Ken Burns, a great book for kids.  Well, okay, we both learned a lot 🙂

Still reading  Airs Above the Ground Eat Dirt: Why Leaky Gut May Be the Root… and started listening to I Know Who You Are

Watching on the small screen We finished season 4 of Game of Thrones which is where I started watching originally and started the third season of Stranger Things last night.

Plans for the weekend  The weekend’s almost over, but Jason took Gage to play tennis.  This morning Gage said, “Do I have to go?  I don’t see the point of it.  It’s just hitting a little ball.” LOL.  As you can see he did have to go and Jason just texted me to tell me he did great.

So what did you do this week to escape the heat?
