My Book of the Month choice for June is Things We Do in the Dark by Jennifer Hillier. There were a couple this month that sounded good and it took me a bit to make my final decision. I hope it’s good!
For 8 days every year Nicholas, Noah, and Joel are all the same age. So until Nicky’s birthday a week from today, I’ve got three 3-year-olds.
Also, it is impossible to take a picture of three toddlers and end up with all of them looking at the camera…
Or all sitting up and facing the same way…
Or with all their faces showing…
The twinplets did some digging under the swings. They succeeded in making a small area of dusty dirt they love to play in.
They love to play in that dirt and throw it around and get it in their hair and all over their bodies. They get a lot of baths because of this.
Hours after Noah had a bath one time we discovered he had left behind a whole lot of dirt. And that’s just from one child!
Fritz is an amazing big brother to his seven younger brothers and sister. But he’s got an extra special bond with Noah. This has been apparent since very early on.
When Fritz and Noah have been apart during the day, they both are thrilled when they get back together. Noah comes over and hugs Fritz’s leg looking up at his big brother with those heart eyes of his.
Noah’s favorite place is in Fritz’s arms. It’s going to be hard on both of them next school year since Fritz will be gone to school ten hours a day instead of being home doing virtual school like he has the last two years.
A few weeks ago Zeke and Mayci performed in a dance recital, both doing tap routines. They’ve both been taking ballet and tap once a week since August.
The girls Zeke danced with were wearing similar costumes to what Mayci had except in yellow. One thing is for sure… the girl costumes at this recital were WAY cooler than Zeke’s!
Mayci’s hair had to be half up/half down and they said I could do a few beads. I did braids and really more than a few beads. Between her hair and her costume she was super adorable.
