hopscotch by sevens

No biggie.

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)

You only said I love summer four times. You have to say it five times to make it a fact. ;)

Only a monthy till grandpa gets there then he can sit outside with the kids. He knows it is cooler outside there than here.
