Alaskans shove 7 months worth of activities into 3 months. Summer is CRAZY busy especially when the weather is spectacular!! Here is some of the things we’ve been up to in the last month (summer weather didn’t start until June this year).
Driving behind a Subaru with handicap plates (the worse combination) I was getting really aggravated. I thought I was doing well hiding my feelings but was proved wrong when after she turned into a business without signaling Merrick said “Mom, you need a drink.” . I’ll have to work on my hiding skills next time. Though I am happy to report I was able to eat a candy bar in the car secretly with the kids in the back and no one noticed. The noisy wrapper was tricky. I was so impressed with myself and happy I didn’t have to share!
Merrick is standing next to me in his swim trunks “Hey mom look! I’m growing boobies!”
In his know-it-all voice Barrett says, “Those aren’t boobs Merrick they’re pimples!”
The boys were in the back seat of the car biting themselves. I don’t ask questions a lot. If they’re behaving big deal. Barrett told Merrick to bite hard so he would leave teeth marks on his forearm. Merrick’s response was “No, Barrett! If I bite to hard I’ll bite into my chicken.”
That’s it for June! Well, not really we have one week left and in a few hours are leaving for the downtown solstice fair but that will produce nothing but pictures of my boys eating cotton candy. Then there is the Run from the Cops race, a wedding, a few playdates….
