Weekend Update

What are we up to lately?
Last weekend we took a trip to Beaver's Bend Oklahoma. We went tubing, swimming, canoeing, rode a train, saw deer, and generally had a really lovely time. Josh was in his element. Bug, not so much. He's not adventurous in that way.
Otherwise, Josh is looking for license plates from all 50 states. He's halfway there. Yesterday we drove through parking garages and lots and found nine new plates, including one from Ontario, Canada! He's built an elaborate cardboard box fort system, is writing a book based on his minecraft adventures with his friends, reading through every Geronimo Stilton book in the library, watching The Sarah Jane Smith Adventures, and is currently playing the piano. Maple Leaf Rag. It's tricky, but he's taking it slowly.
Bug spent all day yesterday mixing food colors together in water, saving his favorite combinations in zip lock bags and taping them to the window so light could shine through them. He was so excited to pick cantaloupe from the garden Monday! He was given snap circuits and transformers recently, and has been eagerly learning how to manipulate both. Last night he read us a story on his own, mostly from memory, but sounding out a few words he forgot. Currently he's playing a felt story from the library.
How is summer going for all of you?
