The weather this summer has been the worst ever. It has rained 9 days out of the last 10 with high temperatures barely getting to 70 on a good day. Egads, this is NOT what summer is supposed to be like.
But in good news, Brendan started preschool this week and loves it. Chris had this past week off of work so he was able to see Brendan off on his first day. I’m excited for my little boy to make lots of friends and learn lots of new things. And it’s incredibly nice to have 6 hours a week to myself even though I have NO idea what to do during those 6 hours. I’ll think of something though.
On the eve of the Fourth, we hit the local carnival that was in town. Look at those lovely clouds. It rained on and off the whole time we were there, which admittedly wasn’t long since the weather was so crappy. But we stayed long enough for Brendan to realize that he loves carnivals.
And then he enjoyed a batch of Cotton Candy on the ride home. He was all sugared up but surprisingly still went to bed without a peep from him.
For Independence Day, we had another round of thunder storms so we mostly stayed inside and were lazy. We did fire up our grill and enjoyed some delicious burgers. Brendan had fun arranging his burger, putting on about 5 onion slices and loads of ketchup. But in the end, he decided just to eat the bun. I’m just glad he ate something since he still tends to be a very picky eater.
Hopefully the weather finally starts acting like it’s summer and we can get a chance to spend some time outside. My legs are in dire need of a tan and Brendan still has some adorable swim trunks to show off.
