Just learning how to count by sevens.
I drew the squares.
Danny told me the numbers to fill in.
He knew the first three.
I helped with the middle ones.
When we got to 77 he said,
"Oh, I know this. Daddy taught me."
Then he rattled off 84, 91, 98 and 105 faster than I could have.
He's got a good memory.
We did a little counting by threes too since we have a nice long sidewalk in the shade.
And this is what I feel like after sitting outside watching my kids hop around for 30 minutes.
Lucky for me, someone brought out a pillow from my bed
(even though that's breaking the rules) so I had something soft to sit on.
I love summer. I love summer. I love summer. I love summer.
(if I say it enough I might believe it some day)
