And I’m back with another Photo post on a lovely Friday afternoon! Hopefully I can actually get this up and posted since we’re almost at the end of Lewis’ nap time, and Anya doesn’t yet have any set napping time so could wake up at any inconvenient moment.
This post will finish catching us up to the present time with photos from our trip to the lake as well as a few since we’ve been home (which apparently I haven’t been taking very many of.)
Our time at the lake was of course lovely with lots of extended family around. The weather was mostly-good with a couple of rainy days and a few random showers on some of the nicer days, but we managed to keep busy and have fun the whole time. Lewis didn’t seem to remember anything from being up there a year ago, so it was all new and exciting exploration for him. We only swam a few times since the lake was a bit chilly and Lewis didn’t like the days with big waves, but he did have a lot of fun playing with the rocks on shore and swimming when the water was calm.
We are now well settled back into our home routines and have been having daily walks and plenty of art projects and sensory play as usual.
I still haven’t quite figured out how to keep the cleaning/cooking/dishes/laundry/etc. under control while caring for two little ones so I have instituted a new rule of “everyone cleans for 10 minutes after dinner” which has helped marginally. I turn on the timer and try to tell Lewis that it is a game and we have to race and clean as fast as we can before it beeps, but he is having none of that and just tells me he is a very slow cleaner and goes on to prove his point. My hope however is that if we keep it up consistently it will just become accepted fact that we do some cleaning after dinner and he will start to participate a bit more with it.
Anyway, here are some photos!
