Good day to take it easy. I've been exhausted lately...so have we all. Erik working overtime outdoors, the kids playing soccer in the heat and then going to parties. Preschool is canceled today, so we have extra time.

It's a nice cool day here but the sun is coming out.
School is done for the day...not a full school day regimen but we learned lots. We were able to compare a bit of ancient China history to a scene in Return of the King ("Lighting of the Beacons"), so: Success.
(I find that when I ease up on school time a little bit, I can easily sneak in more learning opportunities throughout the rest of the day, and everyone has fun with them.)
We planned some more of Nick's upcoming birthday party.
Kids are playing very happily together.
Nick put himself down for a brief morning nap earlier.
