While most bloggers are busy discussing the latest in fashionable sweaters and boots or posting photos of their kids frolicking through apple orchards, we here at The Great Umbrella Heist are still embracing summer. Those of us in New England experienced a miserable, cold, snowy winter last year followed by a miserable, cold, rainy spring. There is no need to rush the cool weather.
Playing outside evolved for us over the summer. Allie has mastered the bicycle. With training wheels, of course! She whips up and down the street with ease now. Emily prefers the tricycle and is quite the little speed demon on it.
Anna tries but doesn't have the muscle strength to really pedal her bicycle. The tricycle is easier for her but again the muscle strength is lacking. I think it will be easier for her next summer when her legs are longer.
Yesterday (Sunday) would have been a beach day for us had it not been for swim lessons and a family function. And laundry. It was humid and at least 80 degrees. Definitely not fall weather.
We'll happily hang on to summer for a few more weeks. Thankyouverymuch.
