Right in the middle of our three day winter! (Not that their wardrobe really changes…)
Feels older than 13, maybe because of the deepening voices and growth spurts going on in our house.
(the 168th monthly picture, which I forgot to take before we left to go meet their friends at the park)
Friends at park:
Yes, Oliver is taller now. Not that much taller, he has shoes on and Linus and Miles don’t. But they did get measured at the vaccine clinic last week and Oliver is 3/4″ taller than Miles and an inch taller than Linus. So.
(And yes, I took this on time, but haven’t had a chance to post it til now. Kiki was visiting!)
(And yes, we got an outside outlet, finally! So exciting!)
(And yes, they’re going to be 14 in a month! Hold me, please.)
Miles was not into smiling before 7am. Hard to blame him.
Well that’s not gonna happen.
It’s that time of year when I panic that their birthday is coming up. It’s okay, though. I can handle 14. It’s fine. It’s fine.
Fourth of July!
Featuring a cameo by the zigster!
It’s that time again! Time to do math!
That’s right, the boys are 13 years and 3 months old.
So that is…159 months old! 13 and one quarter. The other day Miles told me something horrifying. “We will be 15 next year.”
That is technically true, in 2022 they will be 15. But that was very cruel of him to point out.
In other news, look at Linus’s haircut! He desperately needed it.
I am beyond the math here. Someone help me out.
What are they up to right now? Enjoying their new room, even still keeping it neat! Playing Football Manager and Fortnite. Not doing enough summer reading. About to start reminding themselves what math is to prep for a placement test. Though surely keeping track of football team standings and scores and all that stuff is keeping their brains sharp? Mmhmm. School starts virtually in a couple of weeks, so I’m frantically trying to get three desks set up around the house.
I photographed and edited and posted this all from my phone. What can I say, I took Friday off work and didn’t want to go near my computer.
Not a super exciting fourth for us. I made pita bread and cake though, and we used some old sparklers. So yay.
