As planned, I spent the day at Heather and Jed’s helping with various projects. We got a lot done, but we didn’t get the front door frame sanded and painted. A project for another day. Gardening, doing mountains of laundry, delivering kids to friends’ homes for play dates, shopping for patio furniture, and finally going to the nursery to buy ornamentals for the front yard and getting some of those planted is what we did get done. Then it was time for dinner. I have offered for months to keep the boys so Heather and Jed could go out on a dinner date. And tonight was that night. The boys wanted to stay and eat dinner at home so they could play with the neighbor kids as long as possible. So, I fixed dinner there and then we came here (my house) for a sleep over. When it was time for bedtime stories, Ollie said he would read our favorite book to me. Heather told me his reading ability has just blossomed in the past few weeks. He has been reading Magic Tree House chapter books to her. Therefore, I wasn’t surprised when Ollie picked up the book tonight and read the whole thing to me with no assistance, but I was overwhelmed with pride in this new reading abilities. He is really a good little reader. The boys are in bed fast asleep now, and since I have had my bedtime story read to me, I think I’ll join them.
