From the Mountain

Hi all.  Sorry it's been so long.  We are settling into our new home on the mountain.  Moving day was a sweltering mess and we were lucky to have friends who were willing to shed pounds of sweat while getting us transferred into our new home.  Unpacking has been slow but today is the first day since we've been here that is not unbearably hot so we are trying to keep things happening at a steady pace.

A special surprise for Kyan when he first saw his new room.

Our new view to the south.

My attempt to stop sweltering heat from overtaking us.

Who knows where the bowls are?  Ky enjoying ice cream to cool down.

piles, boxes and stuff, everywhere stuff

There is a co-op bbq coming up this weekend so I'm excited to meet more of our new neighbours.   The transition has been challenging for the little guy since he is such a rooted type but with each day that we get a little more put away he seems calmer and more at home.  Could that mean that he'll like to clean his room one day?  A mama can always hope.  I'll be back here again soon.

For the Roses

The summer heat has taken a break for a few days and brought us some much needed rain.  August has bounded in to my head and sent me spinning.  Moving and all that it entails has kept the summer fun a little out of my grasp for the last few weeks.  But I wanted to share some roses with you since they were/are so lovely this year and have given me tons of joy.  I pride myself on being that girl who stops to smell the roses.

I want to remember...

Our moving date is fast approaching and there are more obstacles popping up here and there in our home.  Despite the chaotic nature of packing, and relocating three people there are some moments that take me aback when I realize how big Ky is getting.

He loves to read to himself.  At this point he has memorized many of his favorite stories and it is a pleasure to listen to him read.  Of course lately he's found hiding in boxes to be a fun new pass time.

Building train tracks with Dada is still not getting old.  He loves to lay down on the floor and really get into playing.  He also has the trains talk to each other and he acts out fun little scenarios (very like his Mama used to be in that regard)

And he is now tall enough to reach light switches.  He loves to be able to do the simple, everyday tasks of living.  So far we've been working on him taking off his own shoes and hat and putting them away.  It is mind blowing that he is closer to 3 than 2 now.
