Is it summer yet?

I know we haven't posted in awhile, therefore losing even our most loyal blog readers. But you can't do something fun or picture worthy every day, can you??

Last weekend we pretended it was summer and pumped up the sprinkler ball. I'm not sure it was really quite warm enough, but it was nice and sunny. It was fun. Too bad that night, LT came down with a high fever and sickness that lasted almost 3 days. Guess it wasn't really summer yet? Really, I think he picked it up at the indoor playground where his daycare has been meeting for the last two weeks due to a serious plumbing problem at the house. I like to refer to the playground as "hotbed of sickness." Poor LT hadn't been sick in over a year, probably.

Finally he was feeling better and Wednesday evening we were listening to some cds in his room when the alphabet song came on. I started writing down the letters as they were saying them and then he erased them and took his turn. I was pretty impressed! This is with no help - I did try and tell him the line when on the other side for the d, but he emphatically told me that "no it doesn't." Daddy came home right after "E," so who knows if this was the end or if he could have kept going?? He's a bit of a perfectionist, so he gets frustrated if he doesn't know how to do something and then just stops trying. Hopefully, he'll grow out of that some.

one of jt's friend's mom was saying the same thing about her son - the frustration if it wasn't right. must be a stage?
sounds like a fun sprinkler, but not so fun being sick. :)
hope that plumbing issue is resolved soon!

i'm still reading! glad to here he's feeling better and that sprinkler does look like fun. maybe the perfectionist thing runs a bit in the family as well? although i tend to be more of the procrastinating perfectionist - you know, put it off until there's just not enough time to have it perfect. go figure.

Too bad there is a drought going on here - the sprinkler ball looks like fun!
