Ahhh, what wonderful weather we are having -- this is my favorite season. It's still a little humid in the late afternoon/early evening, but we have opened the windows and broken out the fans. It's delightful in the mornings.

Connor has started a "mother's morning out" program 4 days a week to get him over the potty training hump (and hopefully into "real" preschool in October). He has come home happy and tired both days. Charles hasn't gotten a huge amount done around the house, but I'm trying not to be judgemental til he's on this schedule a week or so. Duncan has started homework again -- yesterday he had to write a "movie plot" using his spelling words! His teacher tells me it will only get tougher as the year goes on. He has 3rd grade "pre-testing" next week; they test at the beginning of a year to establish a benchmark for the end-of-grade testing in May.

I'm having fun with some photo challenges over at Scrap Addict; you see the results in my photo blog from the Photo-A-Day one, and now we are doing a scavenger hunt one as well. I really need to work on the lighting on my inside photos, sheesh!

Glad Connor is in a preschool, even if it's only part-time. I'm sure it will help to get out of the house and be around other kids. Brendan was late to walk- he didn't take his first step until 14 mos old, and even by 18 months he still prefered to crawl...but as soon as he started going to daycare at 18mos old, within a week he was exlusively walking well and never crawled again. I realize this is a different issue, but in general I think it helps to be around other kids for development of many kinds. Good luck!
