Boys Behaving Badly
Or, How Blogging Has Changed My Approach To Parenting. Something is wrong with this picture; the boys should not be climbing on the bookshelves (which I haven't shared yet because they are not quite done). Had this happened before I started blogging, I would have told them to get down immediately. Instead, I told them to freeze while I took a picture and then to get down because they knew better than to climb up there. Gotta let them know who's boss (and if you guessed them you would be correct).
The new bookshelves are slowly being filled with children's classics, reference books, and art supplies. I snagged Kingfisher's Children's Encyclopedia and Science Encyclopedia at the thrift store this morning, as well as a very large round tin in which I plan to house collage supplies - various scraps of paper, fabric, string and other small, collagable objects. An occasional feature on the bookshelf is Aidan - I should have known this built-in would be irresistible to my little monkey.
And just a little update on my pedal power challenge: I have been on my bike every day this week, including a nine mile, uphill ride to my in-laws, a trip to the grocery store, several jaunts to the local skate park, and a few new trails I had never explored. I feel like the Pied Piper on two wheels as I usually have a caravan of children riding behind me, and I couldn't be riding to a happier tune. Here is one of my favorite pictures of the week.
A new rider to add to my merry caravan. Have a splendid weekend y'all.
