It is halfway through the month of September and I haven't even written about August yet. I will put that off just a bit longer as I write about this month's events.
It was great weather to get a few things done outside. Ryan "helped" my mom clean things by rinsing them off with water. He cleaned just about anything he could find, including himself. That child loves playing with water! I don't know that he was really much help, but he had a great time and was not in the way.
While the weather is good we have been trying to get out and take advantage of all of the playgrounds here. We missed having such nice playgrounds in Namibia. This playground is at Justin's school, and is perfect for weekend play because it is not as crowded as some of the other more popular playgrounds are. Ryan enjoys getting the chance to play at Justin's school too.
Although Ryan stopped taking naps long ago, sometimes he still gets worn out. I always hate when he takes a nap because it means he will be up late. This nap lasted all of about twenty minutes, but it meant he was up three hours past his bedtime. He still woke up at the same time the next morning and was a bit cranky. Who would have guessed I would see naps as an enemy?
Ryan doesn't like to do much without his brother. I was able to get him to go out on his bike with me. I need to find a better place because there are too many hills when we go around the block. I was either pulling him or trying to slow him down. He had a good time, but I was sore by the time we got back.
