Wow! Where has the summer gone? I can't believe tomorrow is already the 4th of July then on Monday, Isaac turns 4!
Nothing much happening around here. Cleaning, organizing, reading books (11 so far in about a month, with a goal of at least 25 by the time the fall semester starts), seeing family, trying to stay cool...
Today would have been my Great-Aunt Edna's 100th birthday. She favored my sister, but I still miss her. She passed away in 1993 or 1994. I can't remember any more. My sister and I were just talking about her old house the other day. That place held a lot of memories for us!
Highway 30 is closed due to flooding of the Des Moines River. They aren't expecting to open it until 7 July at the earliest. It's been closed since last Monday. It's a big bummer to have to drive around, adds time onto any trip east from here.
Yesterday, Isaac and I went over to Ames to Fire Station #2 for story time and a tour. Needless to say, he LOVED it. He loved walking by the fire station in Boone and always requested to drive by.
It's been warming up lately so Isaac has been playing a lot in the sprinkler and we've been to the Humboldt pool once while we were up visiting grandma and grandpa. Hoping to get to the Boone pool soon as well as try out the new aquatic center in Ames.
He stays home with me one day/week from daycare. We have to pay whether he's there or not this summer (or we lose our spot) so we have opted to send him so he can keep learning! So far, we've been to Humboldt, spent some time with Aunt Kate in Ames and this next week, I'm thinking we'll maybe head to Don Williams park, which isn't to far from here.
He's been doing great at the daycare so we've been so pleased with that! He can now spell his name and we are working on writing at least his name. We've taught him what town he lives in and he know what street, although it's mispronounced.
Happy 4th of July!
