summer in the city

We had a fun time in Boston with our friends! The kids got "misted," we had lunch and ice cream and then they rode the carousel.

swimming lessons

The kids were violently opposed to swimming lessons this year! I made them go anyway. The first week was mostly cold and rainy, and they were miserable. The second week's weather was much better and they had a little more fun. We're relieved it's over now!

bike ride

I keep hoping the kids will want to take a bike ride this summer, but so far it hasn't happened. For now, I'll keep going by myself! I got these photos of the beautiful river near our house the other morning.

Malcolm and Rye

Malcolm doesn't eat any of the vegetables from the CSA but he likes petting the dog, Rye!

tiny crocs

American sizing is confusing! I ordered the kids crocs in toddler size instead of youth!

knitting

Jane made up this baby bird, then she started another one using a pattern! It's hard to show her what to do because I'm right-handed and she's left-handed, but she figured out how to purl, increase and decrease stitches. Purling contintentally is working better for her since she can hold the yarn in her left hand.
